Gingerbread Details






I deliberately waited until the holidays were over to post these gingerbread details so as to avoid disappointment from all the bakers looking for gingerbread cookie recipes. These pics are not only for keeping an accurate record regarding the details of the house, but will be useful for when we are ready to paint.

Agnes,
I just came across your blog. What a house you have created! Restored with the original character and style. Are there any ghosts still living there? I know your BD is coming up! HB! Would love to talk to you. waldenco@shaw.ca or 604-301-1369
Lots of love

Is that what those are called? Gingerbread details..
I never knew that. :)
They look like they are still in good shape. What colours are you thinking of painting them or, have you even gotten that far yet?

((Hugs))

This may change, but at this moment, I'm looking at
a combination of sage green, cream, burned red.
We are also looking at having the brick cleaned, but all depends on the $$$. This will be a several year project.
