Easter House

I needed a project! So I made some Royal Icing, and took out the Gingerbread house kit I bought at 50% off after Christmas.

First I made the sides of the house with tootsie roll window boxes full of flowers.

Then I made the front and back.

Half a box of Triskets made a nice thatched roof.

Mini jelly beans trimmed the roofline.

Next, I needed to "landscape" the front yard: This was my FAVORITE part! Brad found me some Necco wafers, and ate the rest of the path.

I added some ribbon around the base.

OMG! Is that ever cute or what? Martha Stewart IS nothing compared to you!

Shelagh (SJ):

That's lovely! a little Easter cottage!
(It's sort of like the houses on the Facebook "Farmville" game.)
(Which some people I work with are obsessed with.)

Irene:

Very cute!

connie:

OMG. Only PalmaBella would think so far "out of the box" to transform a Gingerbread house into Peter Cotton Tails newest abode! Darling! Loved the thatched roof and Necco Walkway. How do you even think of these ideas? Amazing!

Barb Cabot:

I think you are in the wrong profession. This is too adorable for words.
