Candy Canes!!!

I hope everyone is staying warm out there! It is COLD here in Texas and we even saw quite a bit of snow at my house…BBBRRRRRRR!

I just wanted to share these cute little candy canes with you before I say goodbye to the last of the Christmas decor. I found these at Whole Foods this year and just had to have them! They are nutmeg flavored and seeing as my Christmas colors are brown, cream and apple green I knew these were coming home with me! I paired them with a dried orange and some greenery to make a fun little arrangement…love love love!

Happy Sunday everyone! Check back soon…I have a couple of  little projects to share;)!

Lots of Love!!!

Now that's a beautiful idea. :) I'm still hoping for some of that snow here. It has been coming down all day but it isn't sticking much.

Number 2 son left for Chicago today. Boo.

Love this color. I have never seen them before. Curious if they tasted good, or did you even try them?

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Brown candy canes? How cute! Snow should be here shortly and then sleet and freezing rain tomorrow. I hope we don't lose power! Stay warm and I look forward to your projects.

I LOVE your blog photos! I'd give just about anything (except one of my children) to be able to take pictures like yours. Could it be something to do with my camera (a 4 inch Fiji) or is it just me? Thanks for your inspiring picture and music. As a teen-ager I memorized all 6 or 7 pages of Claire de Lune (your beautiful music), but now all I can remember is the first page....thanks for those memories.

Cathy, Welcome back! I so missed you and was thrilled to see that you are blogging again. Hope all is well with you!!!

I love the brown candy canes and the nutmeg flavor. I have a crush on anything nutmeg! It smells divine! And you have set them in a darling little vignette.
So happy to visit you! Welcome back, friend!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Cathy, The nutmeg sounds yummy. The only thing that would make them better is to add chocolate!

Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my drying rack post. I would love to know where you ordered the butter platter from. Thanks.
Hugs,
Sherry

Hi Cathy! Oh, these look good and sound good although I'm a tad disappointed! I thought you were going to say they were chocolate! :)
Be a sweetie,

I thought also they would be rootbeer flavored.
It is cold and we got lots of snow here. It snowed for over 48 hrs this weekend.
I want some warmth.!!!!
Have a great day

Hi Cathy, I have never seen brown and white candy canes! I bet they are really tasty! I did make the orchid arrangement on my kitchen table. I have redone it many times! lol...I think it has been in three different containers! I don't have any of the orchids left like those. There is a possibility I might could find some similar though. I have a place I can look tomorrow. I'll let you know what I find...Thanks for your nice comments on my blog! Kristen
