{mini} Gumdrop Holiday on Twine

Don't you just love Christmas lights? I do. Although, I must say that seeing them up already is NOT okay. What do you think? I was driving home late Tuesday night...that would be OCTOBER 20Th...and a business on a corner had their Christmas lights UP and ON. They have some lights up Year-round, but their extra lights were ON!!!

We are not putting our lights up until later, but I know I have no right to judge since I am already blah, blah, blahing about Christmas gifts, recipes etc.

...SOOOOO, since we are talking about lights, I fell asleep the other night thinking about them. When I woke up in the morning, I remembered thinking about gumdrops and candy DOTS and how they look like little Christmas lights. Don't you think?

I pulled out my ribbons and twine and threaded them onto the twine. This would be a cute craft for a mantel, draped over a dining room/kitchen chandelier...a headboard, Christmas tree etc.

Well, I hope you all have a nice weekend.

Happy Happy Friday!

***I am making a new topping for focaccia bread tonight. I am so excited!! It has olives, garlic, artichokes, Parmesan and Mozzarella, parsley and red pepper {THANK YOU JAMI!} and a special fizzy drink made with cranberry juice, limes, fresh ginger and lemon/lime soda pop! I will post the recipes if it is a hit with my TWINSIE! She will let me know if it needs to be modified. Trust me! :)


  1. I am a bit of a crazy person when it comes to Christmas but I don't start getting my goodies our until December! I love your sweet idea about the Christmas lights-very pretty!

    Best wishes,

  2. That's a great idea with the gumdrops. So cute! I don't even let Paul put up the Christmas lights. I think we might be that family who won't take them down until Easter or summer! I'm not willing to take that chance. hehe :)

  3. Tammy and Natasha...thank YOU! Tam...that is too funny. If we were neighbors, Scott would put them up and take them down the day after Christmas! :}
