Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut or maybe The Nutcracker Suite

Today we are taking a walk up the hill to my sister's house.
Notice whats in the middle of the wreath on the front door ?
This is the beginning of her Nutcracker collection.
None of these nutcrackers are the expensive German kind, they are just cute and different ones picked up by her and the people who love her. They have come from all over, and she has them mostly grouped according to "species".
(I'm warning you , there are a lot of pictures.)First up we have the snowmen...
There is only one Mrs. Santa.

But lots and lots of Santas.

Then there is the elf nutcracker making more nutcrackers.

And on the antique shoe rack , mixed with all the grand kids and great nieces and nephews
is an eclectic group of guys.

On top of that are Mr. and Mrs. Reindeer.

Atop the hutch there is royalty, and patriotic ones.

Even the Christmas tree is covered in them.

Over on one of the end tables is Mary , Joseph , and Baby Jesus .

Under that is a small group put there for the grandchildren
to play with.

A drummer boy music box nutcracker.
There are even nutcrackers on the throw pillows.

Salt and Pepper nutcrackers.

And last but not least is a choir of Angels on top of the grandfather clock.

You don't want to be a nut in this house !
Thanks for going on this nutty little tour with me.
I love you all and hope you have a wonderful and blessed
Christmas !
