Gingerbread theme in my kitchen!

First of all welcome and Merry Christmas (early) to everyone! Our kitchen has been taken over by little gingerbread men and women...the roosters and chickens have flown the coop for December! hahaha....
I made little bags for everyone, inside there is candy and all sorts of goodies. In my hoosier below I put several old vintage toys....including my favorite...toy stoves. I even found a matching refrigerator that is to the very left on top of the hoosier. Also when ever I find little vintage snowmen and Santa's I just fit them in...it is already crowded!

The sweet little gingerbread garland was made by one of my favorite gals~Cherry over at Cherry's Jubilee. YOu should see what she creates! And when I saw some little gingerbread creativity going on I had to get myself a little somethin'! Be sure you see her amazing creations...I just know she will be famous one day! She's that good!

Playing along today with Susan over at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
Thank you Susan for being the hostess!

Below I used a tiny little cloche to protect my mini chocolate chip and gingerbread cookies...they are fake and people are always trying to eat them! hahaha
Below a little gingerbread frame I decoupaged.
It is for sale in my Etsy....I'm tempted to keep it though...it is perfect in my kitchen...
My cousin made me the glass jar below using glue and glitter..I will post soon...I took pictures of her doing it and I love the end result! Thanks cousin!

Maybe I should put a small tube of toothpaste in the bag too so they think to brush their teeth after all that candy!

more candy....

Come on over and have some gingerbread with me! I'd love the visit!
Thanks for coming by!
