The Gingerbread House!

Hi everyone, hope you all had a great Christmas! Mine isn't over just yet, as I have to go and visit my family on the coast at New Year. Looking forward to that! ;)

As promised a picture of my Gingerbread house. It's not as fancy, or finely finished as the ones I showed earlier in this blog,  and it does look a little like the Christmas bling houses that are covered in lights and upet the neighbours, but it has stayed up! The windows area fruity flavoured stained glass, the roof is tiled in Jazzles and there is a wobbly set of columns beside the door (Dolly Mixture order).


  1. Merry Christmas Andy.
    The house is SO cute, save me some! Have a great time on the coast.

  2. Hi Andy,

    Oh sooo cute!!! I don't think it will last too long once you arrive at your Families house!! I love the little tree and snow man out the front!!

    I thought of you on Christmas day as my Niece's made a ginger bread house which was gorgeous. I didn't get to eat any though as Christmas day unfolded in a way you wouldn't imagine. I will be posting about it soon.

    Have a wonderful time on the Coast with your family.

  5. Hello Fi, An unimaginable Christmas, that sounds wonderful, hope it unfolded in a good way! Thank you for all your comments over the past few months, you have made me laugh a great deal, and I look forward to viewing your new blog more in the new year too!

  6. Hey John, thanks, I see santa has been very good to you at Merriman Park! I hope it was the santa with fierce inkwork! ;)

  7. Pedrete gracias, espero que hayan tenido una tranquila Navidad, y se disfruta el Año Nuevo con estilo!

    Gracias por sus comentarios durante los últimos meses, es una lástima que no pudimos conocer bien en Kensington, a lo mejor el año que viene. Me encanta tu trabajo, me han convencido de que hay algunas hermosas muñecas para mi casa!

    con amor y abrazos

    (ps. yo no nunca recibimos respuesta de su amigo)

    Thanks Pedrete, hope you had a peaceful Christmas, and will be enjoying the New Year in style!

    Thanks for your comments over recent months, it is a shame we didn't get to meet properly at Kensington, maybe next year. I love your work, you have convinced me that there are some beautiful dolls available for my houses!

    with love and big hugs

  8. Hello Andy!
    Great "Gingerbread House"! I tried to do one many years ago and ate more royal icing than I used on the house. It fell apart.........congratulations on yours!
    Love your "Georgian House" by the way..
    Warm wishes from Ray

  9. Hi Ray, I know what you mean about the icing, I bought extra sweets to decorate the house, because I just knew I would end up eating a lot of them before they ever made it onto the house!

    Pleased you like my Georgian house, it's far from perfect, but I enjoyed making it, and decorating it it even more so. It's not bad for a first attempt. I hope you'll like my new house, my current project, which I will be posting news of soon. quite different from the Georgian house, more rustic!

    I have been looking at your new blog today, your house is AMAZING! It's beautiful! as are your Christmas decorations! looking forward to seeing more details of your dolls house!

  10. I like your little Gingerbread House. It's exactly how a gingerbread house should look. Lots of sweeties!!

  11. Hi Irene, I'm glad you like the gingerbread house! I am looking forward to seeing more of your new projest in the new year!

    Many thanks for all your help and advice over the past few months, I will put an extra effort in to producing some curtains for my house soon, once we start getting a bit more day light and free time to do things!!

    Happy Hogmanay!

  12. Hello Andy,
    Your gingerbread house looks lovely...and delicious. I hope you had a great Christmas and I wish you and yours all the best for 2012. Your random Christmas posts were really fun.
    Big hugs,

  13. Hi Giac,

    thanks, I'm looking forward to having a little nibble of the house soon!

    I have had a very quiet Christmas so far, very pleasant. I shall be having a Christmas all over agian with my family on Sunday, which with all my nieces and nephews, brother an d sisters there, will be much livelier (and louder!! lol) but lots of fun!

    Glad you enjoyed the random Christmas posts, and I hope you had a good Christmas yourself!

    best wishes for the New Year.

    Andy xx
