Candy Shoppe Christmas Stove!

More stoves! More fun! This one for a friend with a sweet tooth! ;)

I painted the original black wood stove that I got at Hobby Lobby to make it more festive as a Christmas ornament. 
I added a few tomatoes in a basket to the "Italian" stove ornament. ;)
And I added a bread basket to the first stove ornament. 
The candy factory stove. :)

A turkey hidden inside every oven. :) Much as we'd like, we cannot subsist on sweet treats alone. 

Thank you soooo much for stopping by my blog! Have a wonderful day!

Cooking Up More Christmas

Here we have yet another stove, for Italian friends of ours. So their Christmas dinner will include a pan of lasagna. And a bottle of fine wine of course, with some assorted fruit on the side. 

I am so excited to see that I have 101 followers! Definitely time for that giveaway I've talked about, for when my blog reached 100 followers. Looks like I know what the first post of the New Year will be...so stay tuned my dear fellow bloggers and blog-getts...and thank you all sooooo much for following! I will definitely "cook" up something really super duper for the giveaway. ;)

I love to hide surprises inside the oven - this one has a pan of cupcakes baking inside.

Lasagna noodles cooking beside a few red ripe tomatoes for the sauce.
A wonderful hearty pan of lasagna!

Red, hot coals burning inside the oven.
More coal ready for the fire!

Cooking up Christmas Foods

With my ability to "shop till you drop" severely thwarted by my health, I've been working on something all year long so that this year, I will have something to "gift" to our friends and neighbors who invariably stop by with something for our family during the holidays. This year, I got smart and planned waaaay in advance, and made them each something from the heart, my own personalized creations of mini foods that emanate warmth and friendship. How better to do that than a tiny miniature oven (signaling the warmth) and the bounty of holiday food and treats? I even added a tiny decorated Christmas tree to the display (finally found a good use for all those beads and bezels I've been collecting from thrift stores) for added holiday cheer. :) The gold bases will be personalized with an inscription of the family's name and the year. This is my first one, finally completed after months of working on it as my hands, joints, and my energy will allow me in small blocks of time during the day. The other ovens are in various stages of "doneness" and I think I'll be able to get them all finished to give out just in time for the holiday.

Cheers! (click on the photos below to enlarge) I hope all of you are having as much fun with making your holiday mini creations this year. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

A traditional holiday meal in the making. The family name will be inscribed on the front of the gold plaque.

Would it even be a holiday without gingerbread men and women? :)
The "star" of the dinner. I'm still working on trying to make my cooked poultry look as realistic as I can.
Hidden treats tucked neatly inside the oven, fun!
