http://oceanadesigns.net/backsplash/ I would like to start sharing elephants I received from my Family on Tuesdays. One of the most unique statues in my collection was given to me by my sister, Linda Kay. Linda, found the Nutcracker at a specialty shop in Kansas City. I have looked for elephant Nutcrackers on many occasions during Christmas at Target and Wal-Mart, but to no avail. There have been several other versions of Nutcrackers, including, lions, tigers, and bears (oh! My!), but no pachyderms (Oh!, No!). There are also multiple styles of occupations like farmers, police officers, and Tin Men; but no Zoo Keepers with an elephant by their side. I guess manufactures don’t think of cracking peanuts, the elephant’s beloved morsel. I’ll keep my eye out, but in the mean time, I hope you enjoy viewing this Elephant Nutcracker.
