When I was young, the gumdrop tree was always a Christmas tradition~ it brings back wonderful memories.
Did you have one?

We didn't have a gumdrop tree but we always had gumdrops. I still love them. I used to have an Aunt that used to make a cake with cut up gumdrops or sometimes she used those candy orange slices. It was so.....good.
Have a wonderful evening.

My Grandmother had a gumdrop tree every year. It makes me think of her. :)

I was looking through some of your old posts and it was fun to see your Holly Christmas dishes. I have a set of 10 found at a thrift store and a year later more at Goodwill. The second find had markings on the back so I could research them online, but it is much more find to discover them thrifting. Love your blog!

Yes of course my Mom always had our gum drop tree out each year. Ours was green and my sister and I always got to decorate it each year. My mom and sister are now decorating the gum drop tree in Heaven. Thanks for the memory!
Your Hoosier Friend,
