Traditional Christmas Candy and Barkcloth

I searched out "Traditional" and "Old Fashioned" Christmas candy, and was surprised to find, not a whole lot came up in my search.

I do remember Mom always having these types of hard candies, the one's with the design inside, and the pillow shaped one's with a little soft candy filling, or jelly-like filling.


But as a kid, my reaction was usually "Blek" lol... As pretty as they were, I didn't care for hard candy.


There is always the ubiquitous candy cane, but we all know about those already. Maybe I'll search gingerbread houses next time.

Meanwhile, and having little to do with Christmas, but oh so very Mid-Century, I saw this barkcloth for sale on eBay and wanted it!


How very atomic Caulder mobiles!

But it was only a rather small piece of material that sold for around $60 grrr. Why do all the coolest designs sell for a lot of money? Ha. I'm going to have to figure out how to print my own curtain designs.
