A lovely set of vintage Christmas Greeting Cards!

“There are two sets available each with twelve cards featuring six different styles. Buy one or both, for something a little different for wishing friends and family Seasons Greetings.”

I’m including this YouTube of The Nutcracker. Mikhail Baryshnikov and Gelsey Kirkland.

“… This production achieved particular popularity when it was recorded for television in 1977, starring Gelsey Kirkland as Clara (one of her few roles captured on video), with Baryshnikov and Minz reprising their roles as the Nutcracker / Prince and Drosselmeyer respectively. The telecast was directed by multi-Emmy-winning choreographer and director Tony Charmoli. Although not televised now as often as it used to be, and despite the fact that it was not shot in high definition or widescreen, it retains its status as the most popular telecast of the ballet even today, having become a huge bestseller on DVD especially during the Christmas season. …”


Of course writing this finds me putting on my CD of The Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky!

Anchors Aweigh,
