Santa, silly and serious trees

IMG_0176

So the oven’s been a rockin’ this week. This time it’s plumb full of sugar cookie trees, all sorts. First to roll out, Santa trees, inspired by a real live Christmas tree on display at the mall downtown. Also reminiscent of some other foliage I dressed back in March….

I also hung on tight to December’s Land of Nod catalog. The catalog was chock full of darling artisan gifts and a silly stuffed pillow that looked like this:

Cookies with big wide-set eyes and tiny half-moon grins seem to call out – “Hug Me!” And then, “Eat Me!” So I did.  (;

Finally, my inner conformist reappeared and insisted that a few classic trees grace the cookie platter.

So I went with a potted variety and threw in some holly leaves and a wreath just to ensure everyone knew it was Christmas. Serious Christmas.  I’m linking up to Cheryl at Tidy Mom’s I’m Lovin’ It Party this week:  http://TidyMom.net.  Come join us!

    Oh, so cute, Kristina! I’m seriously digging that Santa tree – so fabulous!

  2. Gorgeous. I’m a traditional girl, so I vote the old school tree as my fav, but they are all perfection. And the sled!! It’s such a sweet rustic background. Love.
