More Gingerbread?? Part 4

Here's my newest addition to my ginger collection~my honey got for me at Cracker Barrel restaurant. I love their food, but even more their gift shop! It's a cookie jar which didn't get used this time around, but hopefully next yr! :))
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas w/their family and friends! We celebrated ours on Fri. and boy did my house look like a tornado hit w/paper & glitter flying all over the family room. I don't know why I bother to clean BEFORE hand, I should just wait till afterwards, lol. There were 13 of us and we had a wonderful day together. The ginger on the right has a pot scrubber in the back of it. Got it at HL on sale for half price! :))This is my new philosophy...hee hee.My Boyd's gingerbear sat under the 4ft. gingerbread tree.I had this tree in the living room last yr. for those who remember, but this yr. I put it in the laundry room on top of the pie safe.This was in the kitchen last yr. next to the island, but got moved into the laundry room as well.Can't remember how many yrs. I've had this little gal.Love those Gooseberry Patch calendars ~ I use my 40% off coupon at HL every fall when they first come out.Another new addition to the ginger collection this yr. is this towel that I finally found time to stitch. I even went to the library one day and worked on it! It's a small section of a Plum Pudding Needleart pattern. I still have a few of these towels left in different colors if anyone is interested.
Bought this one at Hobby Lobby last yr. I never did try this particular recipe, but I did manage to bake some gingerbread cookies this yr. for the first time, but ran out of time to decorate them, ha.

Well, I hope you enjoyed my little tours, LOL. Next time I hope to show you some of my winful items that I've either won, swapped or been RAK'd with, and yes~ some are GINGERS!!! LOL

Happy Stitching until next time!

Ah yes, your gingerbread collection... I still think of you year round every time I see a gingerbread, hehe! Love the new cookie jar from your hubby, very sweet! I remember seeing that design at HL last year and almost bought myself the apron, but didn't. It is a cute design!
