Cock-a-doodle Candy Dish

My Mother-in-Law saw this little bowl in Hobby Lobby and thought of me.  Can you guess why?

I love the colors in the rooster and the black background.

  It wasn’t long before I decided it would serve as a candy dish.

Then, I played around with it; setting it in different places in the kitchen.  I finally decided to put it on the counter space between the kitchen and the living room; making the candy accessible from all directions. :)

This was an inexpensive and small gift, but I was so delighted to receive it.

And my family is really enjoying helping themselves to some candy.

Todays lesson is this:  Today is Black Firday.  You might just be getting home from shopping: feet aching, mind reeling, and mood dropping in disappointment that you didn’t find just the right gift for Grandma.  However, let’s not get so caught up in the gift giving that we miss out on the true meaning of Christmas.  “Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to
all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David
a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”–Luke 2:10,11.    This is the greatest Gift of all.

Until next time,

Sharon

  1. hi Sharon … thoughtful MIL … what a nice gift. Hope your thanksgiving was a Blessing with family and friends. I started taking down my Thanksgiving decorations today and feel a little sad. Tomorrow will be better when I get out my Christmas stuff. A little early for me, but I want to enjoy it longer.

    Blessings. Audrey

  2. Thanks, Audrey. We had a really nice Thanksgiving. How about you? We set up the Christmas tree today…no ornaments yet though. And it sits among all of the Fall/Thanksgiving decor that is still out. I’m going to take my time and slowly transition. I’ll tell when taking down the decorations gets sad for me, is after Christmas. I don’t have Winter decor to replace it with. Have fun getting out your Christmas stuff tomorrow.

    Blessings
