Hello everyone~ Another fun day is here over at Sue's "It's A Very Cherry World".

Today I am showing you my gingerbread house for REDnesday. I got this little house last year at Hallmark. It plays music from the Nutcracker suite and the lights on the roof light up and twinkle in time with the music. The roof and candies are sprinkled with glitter which looks like a dusting of sugar, and I love it as much as my grandchildren do.
What is Christmas without a gingerbread house, eh? Please make your way over to Sue's @ It's A Very Cherry World for her red participants. Just click on the link and have a very nice RED Wednesday everyone!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

Sandi, what an adorable little gingerbread house -- I totally thought it was "real" when I first saw it. How wonderful that it will last from year to year! Thanks for sharing... Cass

Hi Sandi,

I have the same gingerbread house! I just love it...when I first saw it at Hallmark, I stood there, almost in the doorway, listening to it about 3 precious! I have it sitting on my dining table, trying to decide where to place it. I think I enjoy it more than my grandkids!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

God bless,

Sandi, that is as cute as can be! I have a little sugar plum house that I'm going to share on PS, but I am thinking it might need a little friend like yours! It's very cute.

Hi Sandi! What an adorable little candy cottage! My sis works at Hallmark - I'll have to chastise her for not telling me about it last year - lol!

I love your story about your grandmother, it's very touching. I'm curious about her baby sister - whatever happened to her, do you know?

That little cottage is so sweet! I've got to stop by the Hallmark store and see what they have - this is so cute!



I love your gingerbread house! My girls were just asking me if we can make one. We love the Nutcracker. It's a tradition with us to drive up to my in-laws, take the girls shopping for new dresses and shoes, then go see the Russian Ballet perform the Nutcracker. Afterwards we drive through Highland Park and look at all the beautifully decorated mansions. Some of them are just amazing and unbelieveable! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving such nice comments! -April
