Holiday Lane Blog Hop

I am just coo-coo for this Holiday Lane Blog Hop!  Have we not seen just the greatest different takes, on this fabulous pillow?  :-)

Thank you, thank you to Jill over at Jillily Studios, for sharing her fun pattern with us all.  You know you've made our holidays special! 

And a big round of applause to Pauline, who thru computer crashes (oh don't ya just love technology) and the flu (tis that season), yet managed to get us all on track and organized for a fun hop!  My hats off to you MS Pauline. Your a trooper and we love you!

And Madame Samm...well, as we all know, there are not enough words to say just how special she is to us all!! 

My pillow is based on, nothing else but my favorite "candy" of course.

 
This Holiday Lane pillow is an entire street of Candy Stores, with a sky that's lit up with peppermint drops! Can life get any better?
 
 
From the specialty chocolate cup shop,
 
 
To the lollipop factory...

 
Or the gourmet hand dipped Carmel shop

 
 to cookies and candy treats
Yum yum!

 
The Truffle-teria

 
is complete with a gingerbread man guarding the door!
 
 
Ok, so it shows what a Choco-holic I am!
 
 
Now pink is not usually my favorite color, but this year it seems to have a new found place, in my color palette. Who knew?
It seems to be perfect for my grandmothers antique settee.
And the babies seem to be quite content with it all!
 
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today. My last give-a-way for the year is...
 
 
A layer cake of Connecting Threads Technicolor Tidings.
You can make your very own Holiday Lane with these great fabrics.
Leave me a comment, and I will draw on Saturday Dec 1.
 
Wishing your "Holiday Lane" will be filled with all your dreams.
 
:-)
 
Be sure to stop by my fellow bloggers today and see what fun things they have to show you too!
