C/Alphabe-Thursday

 Cookie ornament

C is for COOKIE

The tree wasn't real but the cookies were. And did they ever smell good! Yesterday spicy gingerbread cookies were hanging on a tree in the lobby of the Toronto Botanical Garden, and walking past them was a holiday treat. Since I had my "spy" camera in my bag, I popped it out to take a few photos.

I like ornaments, although I avoid them because granddaughter would certainly want them to eat. :)))

One of my weaknesses: cookies, and they don't even have to look and smell this good to be tempting (for me)!

Wonderful.-

You don't see cookie decorations too much any more. Great examples.

Around here those would get eaten before I ever got them to the tree!

Bethany Carson said...

Mmmm...I'd be so tempted to eat one of those ornaments! Yesterday I ran across a wooden Christmas tree decorated with lollipops: that was hard enough to resist!

These look so cute!

I saw a recipe for a gingerbread trifle that looked delicious, too, although you can't decorate a trifle as beautifully!

Thanks for linking to the letter C.
