Let's Talk About Christmas Cookies

Fact be known, I've lost my baking skills this year. The cookies that I made either burned, didn't get baked long enough or just plan looked and tasted awful. So rather than show you my oopsies, I thought you'd prefer to see some cookies that look amazing!
Birdhouse Cookies


Reindeer Cookies

 Santa Cookies

 Candy Cane Cookies

25 Days of Holiday Cookies

Melted Snowman Cookies

 Peanut Blossom Cookies


Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

And my last cookie pick comes from The Sweet Adventures of Sugarbelle.
These angels were made to honor the memory of each victims at Sandy Hook Elementary school.

Gingerbread Love Highlights

As we all enjoy this holiday season, I wanted to share some gingerbread items that
have inspired me and make me smile.

Leslie from Goodbye, House. Hello, Home! recently shared how she hosted a gingerbread workshop in her home. I was amazed at the amount of detail that was put into this event and I hope you'll enjoy reading about it as much as I did. I can't even imagine how tired Leslie had to be when it was over.

When I saw these gingerbread houses in the jars - this is going to be one of my must do's for next year. I think it'll be perfect on the kitchen counter, don't you?

How cute is this? Gingerbread man tag made from sandpaper?
Also going to be on my list of things I want to do next year!

Such cute cupcakes, and best of all, this seems like an easy project that everyone will
wonder how you came up with this idea?

There are so many gingerbread houses on Pinterest and this one made with pretzels is adorable.
These pretzels are pretty tasty too!

My good friend, Andrea from The Cottage Market showcased 25 gorgeous gingerbread houses!

Do you remember reading the The Gingerbread Man? You can find just about anything on Etsy!
I wished I would've found this gingerbread candle sooner. Not only does the scent sound amazing, I love the packaging - so vintagy!

 I featured this cone tree earlier this week and isn't the white gingerbread house so pretty?

And last but not least, I'm showing off (again) my dining room table centerpiece.
I believe most items have come from Hobby Lobby through the years.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas!
And please make sure that if you're traveling, to buckle up!

Thanks for stopping by!
