Gingerbread Wonderland

Yesterday: Jane's annual Gingerbread Open House. Bowls of frosting, muffin tins of candies and tiny pretzels and crackers, lots of sticky creative work.


Daisy sat at a tiny table and made a house. I'll skip the gingerbread and just eat her up, thank you.


Gorgeous decorations everywhere, and an unbelievable gingerbread piece de resistance by the hostess:


The Squirrel's Gingerbread House. Can you believe Jane is self-taught?

Her gingerbread house is great--very Tasha Tudorish / Beatrix Potter:-)

We're having a cookie decorating shindig at our house next week... 30 kids and lots of stickiness, and much fun I am sure.

I should contact your friend Jane for some pointers- her house is precious beyond words!

Your blog has been such an inspiration to me and I've passed the link on to many friends. I'm a Pleasant View wannabe :) - and have recently started a blog after much coaxing and hand-holding by a couple of my grown children.

I need some of your "conciseness" to rub off on me now!
