Candy Land Christmas Tree






Our kitchen is "beginning to look a lot like Christmas".....
The tree is decorated with all kinds of goodies.....

Look outside!  The grass is still green...the trees still have most of their leaves....this morning, I cut a rose bouquet from the garden and H picked tomatoes & peppers .....and it's the middle of November!!    Crazy!

I am carrying the Nutcracker theme from the entryway  into the kitchen...come on in and have a cup of coffee!
The Nutcracker in Candy Land.....that's what I'm calling the kitchen.

I have the tree decorated with all kinds of goodies....



I hung a beautiful piece of leaded glass in the window behind the tree...
I also hung this gorgeous crystal sun catcher that my late aunt made for me many years ago.   I have had it hanging in the entryway and realized (duh) that it does get any sun in that north window.   I think I will enjoy it much more in this south window!


I bought that sweet Santa hanging on the Hoosier at Hobby Lobby, he has such a sparkle in his eyes!


I am putting some Christmas things out on the kitchen counters, so I will be back soon to share some more pictures....
This is the harp table in the entryway with a Nutcracker Ballet vignette on it.   Here is the link if you would like to click over there to see some more pictures......http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2013/11/nutcracker-ballet.html

Make a promise to yourself to slow down this year and enjoy your holiday decorating!

  46. Wow sweet lady, only you can create something as fabulous and gorgeous as this tree...it's like a fairy tale, like something out of a story book!!! My grands would love it, although their mother is classic too and has a memory tree, like me, which we started from our first C'mas married. You've been deserving the features in most of the parties!
    Wishing you and yours a lovely Tksgiving this week.

  50. Penny, it is a wonderful Candyland for sure! Love, love it! This is the first time in years that I have not decorated my candy tree. Missing it lots! I let my daughter put her tree where I had planned on putting it. They are living here a few months and I wanted them to be able to enjoy some of their own Christmas décor. There is always next year. Thanks so much for sharing with 'Sugar and Spice'! I will be featuring you this week at SYC.
