Merriment Days

I am joining Misi,http://1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com/
and Robyn,http://primlish.blogspot.com/
for Merriment Days.I hope you will check out other blogs and see who else is on board. This morning instead of coffee, we will have hot chocolate with peppermint.Okay?
 I have never done anything like this before and thought it might be fun.

Peppermint candy makes me think Christmas. My Dad always bought me a 5lb  peppermint stick when I was growing up. This stitchery was a gift from my friend Toni Dunn. I love it.
Thanks for coming Through My Back Door where life is good.

    I love old fashioned Candy sticks... my weakness is collecting them for color. some i have in jars today are ancient and not edible, but sooo pretty!

    Your photo is gorgeous !!

  10. Hi Betty!! Glad you have joined...always thrilled to see pics of your gorgeous home!! I love peppermints too---in fact, I keep stashes of them in the car's glove box and throughout the house all year long! Like Misi, I have peppermint sticks that are almost as old as my boys and probably inedible!---Jan

  11. What great memories I have of those super-sized peppermint sticks.. My Mom always had one and it seem to last forever. I love the little Prim tree. Blessings!

  12. Hi Betty~

    So glad you joined in on the chain. Love your tree & containers of peppermints.

    Enjoy your evening~Becky

  13. Love the tree and the peppermints displayed in the old jars...so pretty!!

  14. I absolutely love everything about this display Miss Betty - the wonderful old jars, the pop of color from the peppermint, the sweetness of Christmas candies, the primtastic tree, the wonderful orange slices, the Santa...EVERYTHING! Funny thing, I've never had a taste for peppermint, but I do like how it looks...so I laughed good and long at Misi's comment....I have a jar with "vintage" peppermints and candy canes as well.... ;o) So glad you joined in the chain...not sure I'll be able to keep up - things are pure chaos in my world now - but I need this reprieve and thought it may be the only way I'd get any holiday decorations up this year!!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin (Yes...definitely loving the new blog dress!!)
