I love this song sung by Dolly Parton. It is my inspriation for my kitchen Christmas theme. Just the title, the song itself is rather depressing, but I like a good depressing song every now and then. The title Hard Cand Christmas got me thinking and that can be a very dangerous thing.(hehe)
Three years ago I strung gumdrops on string to put on top of my cabinets. I wanted to have something that was cheap and easy to do. Well it was cheap but not easy! I had blisters from pulling sticky string through each gumdrop, I knew I didn't want to have to redo them every year so I have been storing them in the freezer and it works great! This year I added the little tree inside the pickle jar. The old glass distorts is a bit but you can still tell its a tree. It's sitting on a base of sugar.
Jars with candy on the counter.
This is my cheap and easy idea for a decorative picture hanger. My screw was big enough to hot glue a button on and then the wreath is hung on the belt loop. It looks like I spent a lot of money on the hanger but I have had the buttons in my stash for over 10 years!
I just love looking at these every morning! So colorful and fun!
