I found lots of goodies at Goodwill. The nutcracker is in almost perfect condition; a few spots of worn paint and a ball is missing on the crown. Easy peasy.
The doll is a 1983 Bradley Doll "Send In The Clowns". I removed the costume, washed it and then I washed the doll (carefully). The wooden sleigh is going to become a centerpiece filled with fruit, ribbons (the black & white) and greenery. The sleigh is going to have a few black and white touches here and there; MacKenzie Child's inspired (click HERE). And the doll is going to be part of the arrangement after I embellish her costume (the black & silver material & ruffle).
That's the plan anyway, but you know how that goes, right? It will take on a life of its own.
