A Cherry on top!

Last week I stopped by my oldest daughter, Nichole’s home. As I entered into her kitchen I saw something that made my heart skip a beat.

Every Christmas she decorates the top of her cupboards with a gingerbread theme and It’s always just darling.

This year I saw something new.

A cute, cute giant gingerbread cupcake with a cherry on top.

I squealed like a little girly, “Where did you get that?”

She said, “Hobby Lobby, I would’ve bought you one Mom, but I figured you had so much décor that you wouldn’t want it.”

When did that ever stop me? lol!

I have such a ‘sweet tooth’.  I can’t resist anything candy themed.

From there I jumped in the car and off to Hobby Lobby it was.  Lucky me, got the last one.  It was half off, so It only cost $10.

Just look at that cherry!

Now quickly I will show you two more gingerbread treasures I got last week also.

This darling house, made from batting was only $14 at Train Wreck (NPS).  I’ve mentioned NPS before.  It’s one of those stores you never know what you’ll find.  They only had two and my friend, Dolly bought the other one.

It’s as light as a feather.  Isn’t it sweet?

Now if these two weren’t enough excitement in one week.  I also received my give away win in the mail.  Shannon from Cozy Home Scenes gave away 12 gingerbread items to anyone who linked up with her gingerbread party.  Hop over and visit her.  The link is still on her sidebar if you’d like to see more Gingerbread fun. I love my gift and I want to thank her.  It fits right in with my Candy/gingerbread themed living room.

I won this little guy that I quickly hung on the wall under my candy chandy.

Sure hope that you are all ready and that your Christmas will be the “SWEETEST” ever!

How did I miss that cupcake? So cute! I also love a candy-themed Christmas. Everything looks so festive at your house!

Glad you were able to get your cupcake!

I saw that cupcake at Hobby Lobby too. Very cute! Yet a good talk with your daughter is in order! Like you said, having too much stuff isn't an excuse not to buy! At least that's what my family says about ME! tee hee

Thanks for showing off your welcome sign. It does look like it will fit right into your already cute decor! Now you'll have more stuff to show off for next year's gingerbread party!

Oh my gosh, I would have snatched that darling gingerbread cupcake up too, had I seen it! DARLING! We now have a Hobby Lobby, although it is still a 30 minute drive from me. But I am sure I will be there plenty! And I think I love that batting house even more! How cute is that!!!
Yummy, sweet finds!!!

How cute!! Merry Xmas to you and your family Jann :)

Andrea said...

Your decors are definitely sweet. I don't like anything very sweet, so i eat only little cakes, ice cream, pies, etc, though i love other carbohydrates aside from the extremely processed ones. So, a very happy sweet Christmas for you and a sweeter 2012!

Merry Christmas

Hello dear Jann. This is your neighbor and friend Nancy. Paula M. told me about your blog and then I just saw you mentioned as winning a prize on Cozy Home. I was wondering if it was you and here you are! Jann I LOVE your blog. I must have gone to a different one before because this is not it. I must have had the wrong html address before. I am now your newest follower. So glad I finally found you out here in bloggerland. I've only had my blog now about 6 weeks and I'm having the best time learning about the computer and meeting such awesome blogger friends. I'd love to have you come and visit my blog.

Nancy J.
