  1. Hi Roseanne — cute tree — I need a quick project for a friend and this is perfect! Mine won’t be scrappy– all one green for the tree but I’ll make the WELCOME letters in different colors. THANK YOU so much for the inspiration.

    Oh Christmas Tree you are a beauty to welcome all. I love it. I agree about finding all the fabrics, it is often the hardest part of putting a scrappy project together. I would love to try your seafoam candy.
    It sounds delish.

  3. I too have always loved seafoam and it was a staple in our candy making for Xmas every year growing up on the farm.

    Many wonderful things going on up there. Love the Ripples, sorry you didn’t get all your blocks! Hope you have a great first week of Dec!

    I agree that sometimes the hardest part is finding all the fabrics to work in a project. The candy looks delicious and your door quilt is very welcoming indeed.

    Seafoam Candy is a new one on me; my sister-in-law makes it the best of us all. Must tell her about your sweet old-fashioned recipe.

  7. Sharon Vrooman says:

    Never made seafoam or divinity. I have made that tree pattern a few times – very quick to make for a gift.

  8. Colette says:

    Your recipe looks yummy. Love the tree.

    Nothing like a total fresh real tree, I remember them too, so loved the smell. The candy looks and sounds great. I like the door hanging idea. Is it out in the weather or do you have a porch? Can we have a photo of it hanging on your door!!?

  10. That sea foam candy looks delicious. We are at too high of an elevation to make divinity. I assume it’d be the same with your candy. Besides I do better just getting a small amount of sweets rather than making my own and being too tempted to eat far more than I need!

    Oh goodness! I remember that divinity was an extra special treat as a child. It was so temperamental with the humidity. Too much and it failed! And, yes, the candy thermometer is still somewhat intimidating to me. lol!

  12. What a beatiful trip down Christmas Lane. I think sometimes we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holidays and forget that we need to focus on making memories for ourselves and our families. Thanks for the reminder of what’s important. And a big thank you for the recipe for this delightful candy. Divinity is my son’s favorite candy, but I think I will slip a batch of your seafoam candy in his stocking this year.

    I have never heard of seafoam candy before, that looks really interesting. I have downloaded the recipe and will give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

    Cute tree!! Perfect for a front door!! Thank you for sharing a new-to-me recipe!!

  15. Pat says:

    So yummy looking. I like divinity but I have never made divinity. You make it look so easy. Your welcome banner looks very welcoming. Thank you for sharing in the hop, Roseanne .. 🙂 Pat

  16. Oh – the cookies look great … almost like candy (LOL!!!) And the tree … oh the tree …oh dear … oh dear … another squirrel???? It’s so stinking cute! And the perfect size for my door … that needs a tree … 🙂

  17. gail says:

    I haven’t had seafoam since I was a child, a VERY long time ago! I look forward to making this!

  18. Beautiful tree! Nice idea. I used to make divinity at Christmas, when I was growing up in Montana. Houston seems to be to humid for it though; I’ve tried (unsuccessfully) several times, and it just doesn’t turn out well. Bummer; I like that stuff! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Kris says:

    Divinity reminds me of my Grandma, cute Christmas tree quilt too!

  20. selina says:

    Your seafoam candy looks and sounds terrific. Your little tree is so very sweet. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Joan says:

    Oh the sights and smells of the holiday season, sure can bring back memories of times past. I must give seafoam a try and start a new memory! I love your scrappy Christmas tree! What fun.

  22. Patricia Evans says:

    My MIL always made divinity and lots of other candies and cookies throughout the month of December. It set me up to feel inadequate because I couldn’t “do” Christmas like she did. We always set the tree up (fresh cut for many years) on Christmas Eve and took it down on New Years Day. I fondly remember the many old vintage glass Christmas ornaments and putting tinsel on the tree.

  23. I’ve never made anything like your Seafoam candy, but it sounds yummy, Roseanne! And I love your tree! Now that is calling to me… I’ll have to go dig through my green stash!

  24. Brenda @ Songbird Designs says:

    Here in the south, we call it divinity. My mom always made it but I never have. Your seafoam candy looks similar and I may have to give it a try! Your welcome tree is very cute!! Thanks for sharing!

  25. I remember that candy. We never made it, but sometimes would buy it. Ours were squares covered in chocolate. Yum! Cute welcome Christmas tree quilt!

  26. Linda says:

    Great post that brought back good memories. My Mom and Granny used to make divinity. I remember them in the kitchen fussing about getting it just right and how Mom would lament if it didn’t set up right. I miss those times! I bet I would love seafoam candy with the addition of brown sugar.
    I had not thought about making a Christmas hanging for our front door. We have a glass door covering it that would protect it, so I’m adding that to my “make before Christmas” list!

  27. Britt-Inger says:

    So many goodies!!

  28. Vicki in MN says:

    My mom always made divinity, white and pink. I have never heard of seafoam before. Oh for a sugar high, LOL

  29. Dorian says:

    Yummy! I was raised with divinity and haven’t had any in ages! So I decided to make some this year too 🙂 Thanks for your recipe. Thats a cute quilt too! Merry Christmas.

  30. CathieJ says:

    Thanks for the recipe. I just might get over my fear of the candy thermometer to try these. I love the Christmas tree quilt

  31. Danice G says:

    The Seafoam candy is a new one for me. It looks delicious. Your Holiday Tree wall hanging is also really nice.

  32. Carol S. says:

    Cute, cute tree! My grandmother always made divinity at Christmas, but I’ve never had seafoam candy. I will definitely need to try this. Thanks for your sweet and yummy post!

  33. Thanks so much for the recipe. I love divinity!
