this is the library's 3rd annual gingerbread display. i took a call at work the other day from the local tv station and they will be coming on monday to do a spot for their broadcast. the first year i made a horse barn, last year a log cabin and this year it is a lighthouse.
here you have my components,
this is the assembled lighthouse
here it is complete with 'snow' and ready to be delivered to the library
there are swedish red fish frolicking out near the rocks. i have pasta shells, dyed red, for accents along the path and seams of the buildings. if i could have figured out how to make a bird from tootsie rolls there would be a gull perched on a rock somewhere but what i can see in my head and get my fingers to make are sometimes worlds apart.
