The Candy Dish

Yesterday we needed something from the attic so the children and I trooped up there and started digging through boxes. I did a terrible job of marking boxes so we had to dig through almost every single one before I found what I was looking for. In the process of digging through the boxes I found this sweet little apple shaped candy dish.

There is quite a story behind this little dish, or at least about the day when I received it as a little girl. I wrote about it in the first book of the series I am working on. 

Rosebud is the first person to read all my stories for the book and was absolutely thrilled to see this little dish since she had really enjoyed the story. She suggested I share a picture with you so that you can look forward to hearing about it someday too.


  1. I've wondered how the book writing process was going so I'm gladto see a glimpse here at your blog. The candy dish is cute - looking forward to reading the whole story about it. :)

  2. A wonderful find indeed. :-)

    God bless and have a great weekend :-)


  3. It is a very sweet little dish....can't wait to read the rest of the story :) Blessings

  4. Now we are all in suspense waiting.

    Cute little dish. Did you fill it up?

  5. That is a cute dish! :) I can't wait to read the story about it.
    Blessings in Him,

  6. Just like the rest, I am excited to see your first book come out and hear the stroy behind the apple candy dish. My mother used to have a lot of serving dishes, but nothing like that. Due to hard times any of our nice dishes have long been sold. But the Lord has a way of bringing along new treasures.

  7. Oh, that is such a tease! Now that we are roped into the story hook, line, and sinker, we'll just have to buy all of the books. :) You just love to keep us all in suspense, don't you! LOL!

  8. I found your blog rom reviewing Suzanne Woods Fisher's new book. I live in Tyrone, just a tad north of you. I look forward to reading! :)

  9. Mary Ann, we used this dish for a jelly/jam dish when I was a kid (lonnggg ago). Always a delight to visit with you.

    Would you be so kind to leave a comment on my BLOG ONLY, for the Miracle Makeover fund drive. Charlie, 8 yr. old, & his story are fabulous. Every comment brings us a $1 for the next person that will be sponsored.

  10. I am looking forward to reading about this dish! Its very cute.
    Blessings, Joanne

  11. I have one just like that! Do you know where they come from? For some reason I'm thinking they were free through quaker oatmeal, or some such deal. Mine was inherited from my mom after she died, so I don't know for sure where it came from, but I should ask my older sisters, maybe they know.

  12. Now I'm curious...

    I hope the books will be - when finished - made in to a version that will be accessable to me, so that I can read the parts of your story that aren't making it on to your blog.

  13. Hi Sweetie...
    Now you really have me in suspense. I can't wait to read the story behind this beautiful candy dish. I love apples, and Momma has her whole kitchen in apples, so they are near and dear to my heart. I hope the story is ready soon.

    This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

    Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

  14. Funny you should post a picture of an Apple shaped candydish. I recently purchased an Apple shaped kitchen clock.
    There are two stories in my blogs about that clock,along with the picture.
    You may want to check them out @
    Have a great day

  15. Would love to read the story some day. It is odd to have a candy dish in the shape of a fruit! lol.

  16. I love its color. Such a colorful little apple shaped candy dish.
