LOL! you are a kick in the pants jen, i just love you! Merry Christmas to you! xoxo,Tara
hahaha, this was a delightful and teasing post. My mom used to do the same although on a grand scale. She owened a large, soft pine hutch that was almost 6 feet in width and 8 feet high. Every Christmas she would pull out every pretty glass container and silver server she owned and fill them with pretty candies, hard and soft, foil wrapped jewel tone chocolates and hand pulled ribbon candies. The hutch would look like a candy counter filled to brims with so much delectable treats. As children, we would stare at it constantly, just waiting for when mom said we could choose a treat following supper. Thanks for bringing back this wonderful memeory. Sea Witch
isn't that the truth! or when you bake something for someone else & they can't have any. we are so unfair!merry christmas!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now if I could only find a place too high for my husband to reach!
So funny! Yup, I am THAT Mom! My daughter said to me, "geesh Mom, most people eat candy, not decorate with it!" Great post!tammy t
Oh my gosh that made me laugh!
LOL I still have to explain to my husband the 'suffering for my art' concept! He is catching on... I often hear "can we use this or is it decoration?" :)
LOOOOOOVE the different peppermint treats in your fab apothecary jars!"the look-don't touch" policy is in force in my home too. Except they're typically with M&M's or something MUCH more enticing.xoxoxo
Cute, and sooo true. My little guy doesn't understand why he can't eat all the candy canes either!Merry Christmas to you and your family.~Amy
LOL. That's why I have a mini tree by my front door decorated solely with lights and candy canes. Give 'em candy and kick 'em out the door. LOL - JUST kidding.
What if I'm the one doing the suffering? Easy fix...just buy plenty of refills!Merry Christmas!Debbie
Hi there,Thanks for stopping by recently. I had to laugh while reading this because when my kiddos were small I was known to post (just a few) notes around the house that said, "for decoration only!". That was for them AND their little friends who were visiting. They still tease me about those. : )I can't tell you how impressed I am with your china cabinet makeover, below!!! I just can't stop staring at the transformation. Kudos to you!!!M.L.
My two year old actually says to me, "We can't eat these yet, right Mom? They're decorating, rght?" Yeah, I hear ya.
Ha! Peppermints are my son's favorite!! Looks great!I hope you have a joyous and blessed Christmas Jen!!!:) T
So very funny! I've MANY containers with much candy (my blog) and NO one is touching it! I'm really confused.
Oh!!!!My stomach hurts from laughing so hard!!!My children don't understand "suffering" for my art either...LOL!
Where oh where did you find your apothecary jars? Now I want to find three different ones so that I can fill them with candy!!! This is really, really great!!!
It's ALL about obedience and patience isn't it????? Have a joyous Christmas!annie grosvenor
Too funny! It's also known as child torture. ;-)Have a Merry Christmas.-FringeGirl
I love all of your clocks. How cute! I have to get me some jars and put candy in them. I love that. I would have to worry about my husband more than my son:)
Love the jars!!
