hey thanks for visiting me and commenting! I am your newest follower also :) I look foward to reading back on your blog and seeing future posts from you!
I have been wanting the willow tree nativity for a few years but it was too expensive for me to just buy, plus I wanted to get it as a gift so that it had some meaning. I love getting my decorations out and thinking about where and who they came from and i dont think i would love it as much had i just bought it for myself.

Debbie said...

Sorry I called you Beatrice...my fault, for not looking at your name on your profile:)

Tammy, I love the candy theme. I now have the Dolly Parten song, "Hardy Candy Christmas" in my head! I love that ribbon you used. And your mantle is great. So much fun. I bet your kids love it.

Ah....it is a Candy Christmas at your house. I love the gum drop garland on the tree. Love the skinny tree itself. Perfect Christmas for children. I saw "The Inspired Nest" said she now had "Hard Candy Christmas" in her head....I did too! Looks good enough to eat...of course!

Tammy,
What a great idea. Ok, I so love the gingerbread guys how cute are they. Those frames are adorable. It totally looks like a whimsical christmas tale just unfolded. Cool!

Thanks for sharing!

I love your sweet decorations! I love all of the sugary, confectionary decorations. Your whole blog is great.

I'll be borrowing your idea for a cocoa bar for Christmas Eve. We hold an "Orphan's Christmas" every Christmas Eve. Our parents live in Georgia and Rochester. Our friends' parents live in Buffalo and Philedelphia. We have another friend who's parents are no longer with us. It's kind of an open house for people who's extended families are elsewhere.

Thanks for visiting my blog, so I could find yours. I'm your newest follower.

I love the gingerbread!! And I really love your tree topper - I've been looking for one like that for ages and haven't been able to find one!

Joan said...

Thanks so much for visiting me at Applejack Lane. I am your newest follower! I see you are quite fond of gingerbread. So am I. I need to post a pic of my mantel. I am so busy at my Hallmark shop that I have had little time to blog, but I hope to rectify that very soon!

Cindy said...

Hello sweet friend,
I am loving the candy theme that you have going! It all looks good enough to eat! So pretty! You have some great decorations on the tree, too, love the potato masher! The ginger bread man on the top is so sweet, almost as sweet as the kiddos in the frames!
Your house looks so beautiful, it looks like you enjoy Christmas as much as I do. I am really just a kid at Christmas time, so when people say "Christmas is for kids", I agree and count myself in. Most of the rest of the time I can be very grownup, though! ;o)
Love and hugs, Cindy

Hi Tammy- Nice to meet you, too! I think all your little gingerbread people are adorable and the candy garland looks so real! Love the whole candy theme. My gingerbread tree didn't get put up this year. No time for all of it, so I really pared down... Gotta run- trying to find my camera to take pics- been on the computer waaaay too long! I've added you in to follow, as well. Sue

Bringing Pretty Back said...

Oh! THANK GOD for a good hot bath! YES! You are a wise woman to have a fake tree!!!! WISE!
