Nutcracker Treasures

  All of my Nutcrackers are handmade in Germany – how someone can craft by hand a little itty bitty one astounds me.  These Nutcrackers arrived via my mom’s friend who brought them back from a trip to Germany.

    My son collects these! There’s three staring at me right now … which reminds me … I may want to turn them around as it’s getting a bit creepy …

    lovely poem — I like it! 🙂

      Thanks. I am having fun writing these. I just wrote the Arabian and Chinese. Now I have the Russian, Reeds and Mother Ginger, Sugar Plum Pas de Deux and Coda. I sort of started with the waltz of the flowers not knowing I was going to do the whole ballet. Oy.

    Reblogged this on Words4jp's Blog and commented:

    Last year I wrote a series of pieces based on The Nutcracker Ballet. Many of them feature nutcrackers from my collection, as well as, other memorabilia from my years of dancing in this very special ballet. I hope you do not mind the reblogs – but I figure for many of us, The Nutcracker is a holiday tradition. Whether we dance it, watch it, listen to the music or decorate our abodes with nutcracker soldiers – it is a part of this time of year. Enjoy!
