Holiday Houses (Simple Stories Handmade Holiday)


Every year we go to a gingerbread house exhibit at the George Eastman House. The houses are done by local families, scout troops, and professionals. Even though there were fewer pieces on display, there were still plenty of amazing creations like this replica of St. Peter's Basilica. We also saw a beautiful Victorian living room, complete with a twisted Twizzlers licorice banister accented with pearls. A Mouseville village complete with teapot-shaped houses was also at the top of the list. It's amazing what you can do with gingerbread!
