Gingerbread Man – some are just Ornery….

“Run, run as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man !!”

Do you remember this story ? I thought that little Gingerbread man was ornery as you can get….teasing everyone ….but, remember the end of the story ? He did all that teasing and got what he deserved….ate by the alligator !! LOL !

Do you have gingerbread men ? If so , you may want to keep an eye on them….some aren’t so well behaved…..don’t worry , the ones I am showing today, are well behaved….

This was such a fun “photo shoot” I love all the bright and warm colors…

Here is the low down on the items I used :

Peppermint plates from JC Pennys – last year after X-mas I bought a 16 piece place setting under $20.00 – so I bought 2 and have enough for 8 people. The plates are nice and heavy and not cheap – Yeah Me !

Gingerbread tea light metal holder  from Kohl's – last year after x-mas – I think it was around $5

Gingerbread candles from the thrift store , still in the wrappers $1 each.

Silver chargers from Wally World – last year after X-mas sale for cheap.

All ornaments and cake tin from the thrift store all for $4

Table linens from  Jc Pennys after X-mas last year – cheap

Glass water goblets from the thrift store – a buck each

Hope you enjoyed my pictures !

Hugs ~ Kammy

Wonderful tablescape Kammy! Anyone who gets to sit down to that table is bound to have fun because it's so festive and cheery! And the photography is amazing!

Florida Sue said...

Now this is what I call Christmas! I love to romp in the snow with my granddaughters in small doses. I even snowmobile when I am back in Canada, and I actually called Cross Country skiing my hobby-once upon a time. Now I am 57, and the winters seem way too long in the north. Your pictures are so precious and I swear they are magazine quality. You are my girl with the beautiful smile, and it makes me so happy to see you just blossom with talent and style.

Yea for gingerbread!! Your table setting should be in my house!! I've got gingerbread boys and girls in my kitchen all year long! And several versions of the story, too.
