CAUGHT IN A BLIZZARD

I love this one we had a storm blow in and had placed this house outside to get a picture in the snow. We left it for a few hours and the sleet and wind made for a beautiful transformation,  this was in Idaho.   It also reminds me a of driving through snowdrifts and a narrow road that was kindly plowed out just to get me to the plane on time.    The bleeding colors reminded me of this experiment.candy houses are a tradition no matter where lots of examples and ideas for decorating yours  gingerbread house kit ideas and tips

The Whole Village

This village with trains and sleighs is from about 13 years ago.  We spent hours working on these. Notice that some of the windows are cut out Dremel tool for the win!  I was serious when I said that  Candy Houses were a long standing tradition on black Friday.candy houses are a tradition no matter where lots of examples and ideas for decorating yours  gingerbread house kit ideas and tips
