Gingerbread house revisted

I received and email today from someone wanting to see my Gingerbread house. And, upon looking, saw that there were no pictures of it posted here!  I guess they were all posted on my old Myspace site, which I never go to anymore. It took me about 5 months to complete, if I remember correctly. Most of the time was spent trying to figure out what to put on it!
 So, here are some pictures for anyone interested. This post has a lot of pictures so, hold on, here we go...
First pictures up.. the candy. I tatted every bit of candy on the house. I had someone, who saw it in person, think the chocolate kisses were real.. that was a big compliment!

Peppermints, gumdrops, lollipops and kisses.
Non-pareils and taffy trees.
Good and plentys and 'licorice' scotty dogs. I have a red one on the house, too.
The house beginnings..candy canes and block tatted door.
...and more. House on plastic shape I made, later made a cardboard one.
The house complete with tatted snow on the base. (I think that took the longest and was the most tedious.)
Closeup of Peppermint girl and you can see the red scotty in the background.
The back with licorice all sorts, candy canes making a heart, and gumdrops.

One of the sides.  Gumdrops, taffy and "m&m's" on the roof.
The official picture of the Gingerbread house.
To see pictures of the Haunted house, go to the sidebar, to 2009 April and May.
Thanks for visiting!

Absolutely amazing! What a fantastic tatted gingerbread house! When I first saw the pictures I thought it was a real candy and gingerbread cookie house, then I saw that it really was tatting. Incredible creative work!

Thanks everyone! I did so enjoy making it. I even bought some gingerbread perfume oil to put on it to make it smell nice!
