Down Gingerbread Lane, Part One

Some of my longtime followers might remember my obsession w/gingerbread!  Well, it turns out that I have way more than I thought I did.  It looks like an explosion went off in my kitchen!! LOL
So I'll start w/my island and how I changed it up a bit this yr.

Here is the cookie jar, not sure where I found it, but it is one of my favorite pieces.

 This was made by my dear friend Wendy from across the ocean.  She is one talented lady!!
 These were the only things I bought new this yr. and they were a big hit!  The vinyl placemats were on sale for less than $2 a piece!  Now that's a bargain!

 In the middle is a recipe book I made at a Scrapbook store a few yrs. ago.  It has a teeny gingerbread cookie cutter on the upper left side.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas as we did!!  So much fun and laughter around the table last night!  Just a wonderful feeling of family love that only grows more dear to my heart each yr!!

I'll be back w/part two in a few days!  Stay tuned!  Lots more GINGERBREAD coming your way!
