Gingerbread Houses

Hello, Dear Ones.
Most of you know my Mr. Precious has been retired now for about three years.
He is so busy and belongs to many organizations.
He came home the other day and said, "Look, I won the door prize!"

 He won this wonderful little gingerbread house.
Well, maybe it's a gingerbread village but it's most darling!

 Look at this house with all the stacked cookies on the roof!

Here's this little houses refection in the mirror 
 so you can see that the back is decorated as cute as the front.

 The little A-frame house looks so yummy!

 I think this little gingerbread house is my favorite ~ 
maybe it's because of all the chocolate! :)

 Well, maybe this one is my favorite! 
Look at the darling little windows.

The little gingerbread village is sitting on a huge round and bordered with CANDY!

There is even colored ice with sprinkles!
Is your tiny mouth drooling yet?

 There are little snowmen carrying peppermints scattered all around.

You can imagine my joy when Mr. Precious said ~ this is yours!
It was made by a local lady and she had placed her calling card in the wrapping.
I emailed her and bragged on how darling this was and asked her if there was a wayI could preserve it?
 She told me to let it air dry (the candy was still rather sticky) and then I could use a spray sealer and any kind would do. Well, that's just what I did. I let it dry for about a month then I grabbed up a can of spray paint sealer and went to town.
So hopefully I can find a box and lots of bubble wrap so I can keep this little cutie and use it again next year.
Have any of you kept your gingerbread houses before?

 I've set this up in my dining room and I know little Carter, my little granddaughter,  will love this.
I flanked my gingerbread village with these two wooden Santies.
I really have to watch the Santies as they have a very hungry look on their little faces! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


Gingerbread, gingerbread,
Yum, yum, yum, Yum, yum, yum.
I like gingerbread, I like gingerbread,
In my tum, In my tum.
