'Tis the Season

'Tis the season for gingerbread house prep boards!  As you may have noticed, I have been focusing on making a few different kinds of gingerbread houses in my previous posts.

In addition, I have added a few pictures of a few corn on the cobs!  I spent many, many hours trying hard to achieve the end result, but it was definitely worth it.  Perhaps I'll make more in the future, when my patience returns! ;)

All available for sale on Etsy!

Peppermints and Spearmints!

December is upon us, and it's officially gingerbread house season. I had a little fun recently and assembled 2 new gingebread houses: one is spearmint and one is peppermint. It's a shame I only get to make these once a year. :)

While I was at it, I also made a few delicate candy canes as well.

Bring on the Gingerbread Houses!

It's gingerbread house making time!  Considering how tedious these little structures are to make, I actually had a lot of fun getting back to making them.  After all, it's only once a year that I get to make gingerbread houses!  I am definitely anxious to design more, but here is one that I'd like to share in the meantime. :)

Early Happy Thanksgiving to all of my fellow readers from the United States!  I hope that your holiday is full of family and love...sending my thanks to all of you this Thanksgiving!
Delicate, dainty, and delightful!

 Halloween has come and gone, November has arrived, and Thanksgiving is around the corner.  I'd say it's about time for a few Thanksgiving Dinner minis!

As you can see in the pictures, there is a succulent turkey, fresh pumpkin pie, and a golden platter of cranberry sauce.  Mmm!

A Few More Plump Pumpkins

It's only just the beginning of autumn, so here are a few more pumpkins.  There's quite a variety too--not just your typical orange pumpkins, but some dark striped green, white, and faint orange pumpkins as well.  Note: The leaves in the picture are miniature, not lifesize. :)

Also, in this post, I've included a few shots of a plump pumpkin teapot!
