Gingerbread and Flowers

I have a very long to do list today…

So I got up this morning at 6a.m. to start on that list…

Gingerbread Pancake Mix Tin Arrangement

This tin is from Williams-Sonoma……it contained gingerbread flavored pancake/waffle mix…

—– and it was awesome!

With eyes barely open and my coffee cup in one hand I proceed to start to work…

I have not been to Williams-Sonoma lately (other than the outlet store)…

—– I am hoping they will have this mix this season.

I placed copper leaf stems that I bought last year on clearance…

—– and added stems/picks of greenery.

I felt that the copper stems went well with the tin.

Did I tell that I just love this ribbon?

I buy these beautiful ribbons on sale after Christmas..

—– usually for 75% off…. which is great when a roll is $25.00!!

So here is the finished product.

It will be hanging in the clubhouse for the craft/artisan show…
