More Gingers?? Part Two

Hi everyone! I'm finally back and it's been a wild week of last minute Christmas shopping and running errands. I've been gone all day, everyday this wk. and today I just needed to stay home and get some things done.
Hopefully this blog post won't get all messed up like last time. Planned on showing a lot more pics per post, but decided not to take a chance, so just gonna show you a few at a time.

This cabinet stands to the right of the big hutch I showed last time. I know many of you will recognize several gingerbread from last yr., but I did try to mix it up and also added a few new pieces to my collection. Can anyone have TOO many gingerbreads??? I don't think so! LOL
I bought these 3 blocks several wks. ago off of Grandma Kringle who has an Etsy shop. I just fell in love w/them.
Sorry this one turned out so dark. I didn't realize it till after I had already uploaded it. The round box was also a special order. I loved the handpainting on it! I wish now I had taken a close up of it.

That's all for part two, but I still have plenty more to share, so I'll be back in a few days to continue the tour. Hope to see you back then! I sure am enjoying all the Christmas music and movies this time of year! Let me know what your favorites are.

Are you feeling the pressure yet?? Don't worry~ you still have over a week yet before the BIG day! Until then~ "The greatest sweetener of human life is friendship." I certainly hope each of you connects w/the sweetest of friends in the universe this season~Jesus~ the ONE and ONLY reason for our Christmas Season!!

WOOOHOOO, I LOVE gingerbread men d and I love the way you displayed them.
I also LOVE the blocks and up on the top one says.... Mom'!!!That right they are yours!!!

Put your feet up tonight and try to relax...PLEASE if you keep running around you are going to get sick for Christmas, and you are right it is Jesus's Birthday and alot of people seem to forget about that.
Not here, even that our oldest is 20 and youngest is 17 this week we still say a prayer on Christmas morning and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus and we have DONE THIS before they could talk and still do then we open gifts. I feel it is important that we teach them young why we really have Christmas.
I am glad my husband and I are not the only ones that feel this way!!!!

I can't wait to see more Christmas pictures of your home.

Christmas Blessings,

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! And they all look so great grouped together in your cabinet!
Love it all and I hope you don't feel pressured - somehow everything falls into place without our stressing!

Oh, what an adorable collection of Gingers! That cookie box is so cute!
I love all the Traditional Christmas music with the old timers like Deano and Bing. Michale Buble does justice to his songs, too!
Thanks for sharing your home with us!

What wonderful gingers! I think I may have mentioned in your first post that I became drawn to gingers just last year & this year it has exploded into quite a love affair ... lol! My plan is to incorporate a lot of ginger crafting into this coming year so I will have enough to fill out my meager batch of them : ) Blessings, Shirlee
