The candy man can! Or at my house it’s the candy gram. Yup, my grandies call me grammy or grams for short.
Containers await to be filled with homemade candy. Dishes ready for the sweet treats.
As much as I love decorating with vintage items I also love the bright and cheery side of Christmas.
So for that reason the family room and kitchen are going all “Sugar and Spice” this year. Oh, but of course I love throwing in a little bit of old with the new.
This made me laugh when I spied it at an estate sale. I’m sure someone made it. For $1 I had to bring it home.
Who better to stand guard over the goodies than a thrift find blow mold Santa?
Notice the linen table runner? $5 at the same estate sale. Now that’s SWEET!
The mantel is decorated with ‘Sugar and Spice’ I gave it a little picmonkey snow.
And here it is without the snow.
Candy, cookies, cupcakes and more. . .enough to delight the kid in all of us.
I need more gumdrops in the sucker jar. I went to the store and forgot to buy them. Ever do that? Forget to buy what you went for? Am I getting old or what?
The tinsel garland is vintage. I bought it last year from Star Mill Antiques.
More sweet treats on the hearth.
I made 4 of these gingerbread girls years ago. Three of them I gave as gifts.
I made one mistake with this mantel. Can you see it? It needs some height in the middle. Wishing I had put my old window up there. But honestly right now I’m just ready to call it done. Now maybe tomorrow it will be a different story. lol! I am always tweaking.
One thing that drives me nuts about pics of my mantel is the fireplace. See how it looks like there’s moisture in there? It’s been like that since we bought the house. I don’t notice it until I see a pic. Anyone know how to fix that? Doesn’t look like it comes apart.
Sure hope this will make ‘visions of sugar plums dance in your head!”
