Favorite Toy Stove

Hey Everyone! HOpe you are doing well. I'm lovin' having my kids home from college....yes it's back to washing dishes, picking up dirty clothes....and what is with all the cords they bring home....there are cords for computers, Ipods, playstations....they seem to be everywhere. So what is a mother to do? Wrap it with garland of course!
Today is Pink Saturday but to play along....we get to tell of our favorite ornament or tradition!
My favorite Christmas item to bring out at the holidays is my little play stove! I love it!

I dream of baking little mini cookies and muffins for my toy bears and dolls. Yes I love and adore miniatures!

This little pie tin has mini gingerbread men buttons in it! My heart pitter patters each time I see it!

Be sure to check Beverly's blog @ http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ for more Christmas fun! Well I'm off to bake cookies, brownies and other good things in my BIG oven! Hahaha...try not to burn things by blogging while baking. I've tried it and it is a little dangerous! Big smile!

Couldn't you just imagine the food that would be coming out of that little oven. I can see why you like to bring it out each year. The feeling of home definatly sets in with me on the littlest things..Maybe the feeling of home is coming home to good yummy smelling food and sitting around the table lauging. Hope your family is doing the same since the kiddos are home. Have a great day!

Oh, I so wanted one of those when I was little but never got one, same with a dollhouse, but I took care of that when I got older, LOL

Hmmmm, could be one reason I don't cook or bake . . . they didn't start me off young, LOL

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Its So Very Cheri said...

Oh I love it. Did you see my post about my tree with 3,500 lights. Its a video and shows some of my ornaments. I have a Hallmark stove and it really smells like vanilla.
I have had so many Google problems-and it isn't over-Google has no idea how to solve the problem.
Sorry I haven't been by much-I decided after weeks and weeks of non-stop Google issues, I am throwing my hands up and making much needed visits.
I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and hope you can come by for a visit. I have missed you coming by.

Your stove is SO cute!! It brings back memories of my Easy Bake Oven and all those little mini cakes that tasted like cardboard! lol!!

I am feeling the love like you...of the dirty clothes, clutter AND cords!! Really...plugged in an electronic device or in someone's ear.

Happy holidays, sweet lady! :-)

Hi Debbie:
Just stopping by to say hi. My computer is acting up and won't let me load the whole post with pictures but what I saw is so cute.
I know you are having a great time with the kids home.
Hope all is well on the "farm"
Merry Christmas.

Goosegirl said...

Oh Debbie, my mom had a little stove like that and it really worked...until it caught on fire when the plug shorted out. So I don't have it anymore. But I love seeing yours. Have a wonderful time with your family all home.
Merry Christmas.
