Gingerbread Decorations, Etsy Store Items and an Upcoming Giveaway!

It's almost the weekend! Time is just flying by...Before we know it it will be Christmas day!




I showed you my peppermint candle holder on my island the other day. Now I want to show you some more of my gingerbread/peppermint kitchen decor. This is a little tree that sits in the corner by the table. This year I added a few more ornaments and the glittered gingerbread man on top. I didn't have anywhere to set him on my counter, so I just stuck him in the top of the tree!


He's so cute!
The tree is filled with gingerbread men, ribbon, candy balls and picks.


You might remember this gingerbread terrarium from last year. I left it exactly the same! The "snow" is actually sand and the gingerbread men are ornaments. The gingerbread house is actually a stocking holder I found at Hobby Lobby. I just berried the holder in the sand. I used real gumdrops and candy canes. This is my favorite decoration in my kitchen.









Here is another vignette in the kitchen. My friend gave me the cookbook several years ago, it's full of wonderful recipes. The gingerbread man on the left is actually a candle holder.




And another vignette...I've been burning that Yankee candle all day and LOVE it!! It smells up the whole house! I'll show you the entire kitchen decorated very soon.



I listed some new items tonight including frames...


and a few more Christmas items. If you pay through paypal I can ship the Christmas items right out and you should have them pretty quick. Click HERE to visit my shop.


One more thing...I will be starting my giveaway tomorrow evening! I will only run it for 3 days...I want to draw a winner and get the items shipped out so whoever wins will have time to enjoy them through the Holidays.
I am giving away a frame I made that says "Here comes Santa Claus". I am also giving away a cute glittered metal Santa...I have one of these in my bookcase. I am also including a Yankee candle like the one I've been burning all day...you will love it! The last thing I am including is Ferrero Rocher hazelnut chocolates. I sure hope I can keep from eating these! lol...they are my favorites!


Be sure and stop by tomorrow evening to enter to win!
Have a wonderful Saturday!!

I've always loved your kitchen decor at Christmas, I wanted to get some gingerbread stuff this year, but I think I should wait for the sales, or collect it throughout the year. Your giveaway looks awesome:-)

Love the little treat trees. Where did you get them? My kitchen is also decorated with gingerbread & peppermints. You should get the Bath & Body Works candle - Gingerbread. It is heaven! Of course the peppermint is incredible, but I hoard those and use them throughout the year. ha
