These are just a few of the projects I have been working on. I bought this huge cornucopia several years ago at a going out of business sale.It sat around for a few years until I went to another flower shop going out of business sale. At that sale I found a plastic tub of various fruits and vegetables for Ten dollars. Just one stem of this fruit was marked at sixteen dollars! This was a deal, it was a HUGE  tub. Anyway I put together this and won 1st prize and sweepstakes at our local Extension Homemaker Fair. It also won a 1st at the State Fair.
Lots of different fruits and vegetables.
A wreath that I won 1st prize on-I just noticed it is upside down and sideways in this photo.!Snow bear cookies won a 1st in the county baking contest. I make these every Christmas. A friend brought me this cookie cutter from a trip to Alaska. I put shimmering sugar on top of the wet frosting and it actually looks like fur.I always package them in these clear bags, with blue tissue paper and ribbon-so elegant looking.I am joining Shast at  for the All Star Block Party.

I love the wreath and cornucopia! I used to have a wicker one a long time ago but have no idea where it is! Your polar bear cookies are so sweet...I love the "fur"!
