a recipe for Christmas cheer...

I think I may have found a holiday tradition that is the culmination of all the things that bring me joy...
baking, decorating, crafting, collecting, and gardening...! 
One late visions of sugar plums danced in my came to me like a magical dream! I flipped on the lights, wrapped up in my robe and ran to the kitchen. Everything I needed for my creation came dancing out of the pantry...
hard candy
powdered sugar
gingerbread mix...

pretzel rods
graham crackers
rice crispies
...and lots and lots of love

This is the recipe for my winter sweet creations...and the result is a great deal of joy! Vintage cake stands elevate the lovely winter fairy houses and give them a stage on which to shine. Tiny candles illuminate the candied stained glass windows from within adding a warm delicate glow. Domesticity is an honorable art. Now it's time for you to dig through your pantry and bring your vision of sugar plums to life too!


  1. You just whipped these up in the middle of the night! You are like me that is when I get most of my inspiration! It hits in the middle of the night! They are adorable!

  2. Wow, maybe just a little nibble?
    Wonderfully creative as usual

  3. Thanks for the comments! I do get inspired in the still of the night. Merry Christmas!!!
