Nutcracker by Spielzeugschachtel

My German Nutcracker that my mom brought back from her Danube River Christmas Markets Cruise.

Erlebnis Holzkunst ~ Spielzeugschachtel

Seiffen, Germany ~

The toy-making village of Seiffen has become famous for its unmistakable woodturning crafts. What is today an ever-improving toy manufacturing industry actually first originated from the need for mining families to buy more bread. All year round more than 100 small workshops produce and sell ornamental fir trees, pipe-smoker incense burners, nutcrackers, enchanting angels, decorative Christmas arches, music boxes and pyramids that rotate by candle heat.

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather take pictures, play with fountain pensioned ink, garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)
