Gingerbread House Giveaway!

Get in the Holiday Spirit...
Nothing boosts my spirit like a little gingerbread imagine a whole town...or maybe just a neighborhood...of gingerbread.
To help my friends get in the holiday spirit, I am giving away one of my gingerbread houses.  There are no hoops to jump "likes" or "follows" involved...simply post a comment on this blog post.

One week from today...November 16...I will randomly pick a winner from those comments.

Here is a side view of the house.  It's 9" tall to the top of the chimney.  I am including two battery-powered flicker tealights to make it homey inside.  I forgot to add that these houses are made from papier mache...not real gingerbread!

I hope you will enter and make a place for my little house somewhere in your cosy Christmas home.  If you are comfortable with it...please include your email address.  If not...please check in next Wednesday to see if you've won.

My anniversary is this weekend and I want to use my "gratitudes" for the next few days to express how much I love my husband and the cute ways he makes my life happy.'s silly I know...I am grateful for the yummy cheese and mushroom omelets he makes me for breakfast every morning.  How did I get so lucky?

It's a Lovely Indian Summer Morning,
