In my quest for the reclaiming of old Nutcrakers….I have noticed that female’s are hard to come by.

Knights..kings..quards..soldiers…santas…..a dime a dozen.

Ladies…that’s another story all together…In my gatherings of nearly 200 crackers..I have only came across 3 or 4.

Finding men’s fashion to somewhat limiting…I decided to set aside my search for females and create them myself.
With a wealth of materials at my disposal it wasn’t to difficult to do.


With the help of my dear Kate (www.allnsundry.wordpress.com)…who each time she visits..is always willing to help with┬áthe task at hand…we got the face and body sanded and ready for painting.

Kate painted her face with lovely expression…giving her blue eyes and deep wine lips.
