Sugar glass windows, candy cane porch pillars, and teeny-tiny chocolate sunflower seed flowers. These are the things dream homes are made of, my friends.
Or maybe you're more of an urban high-rise type?
FACT: Baby deer make the best doormen.
Or how about a spin on the open seas?
In my mind, of course, the seas are made up of hot cocoa. MMMMM.
I've seen a couple of cookie vignettes before, but this one just blows me away:
Look at that picture-perfect piping! And I love - LOVE - the tea light cut-out in the middle. Makes for such a gorgeous display.
Of course I had to include the gingerbread bakery, now, didn't I?

Check out the goodies in the windows! And the roof cresting on top is STUNNING. I assume it's made with royal icing, but to get it all installed without cracking? That's gotta be insanely hard.
Ok, time for a geeky side trip:

And for you Breaking Bad fans:

See, now, I want to live in that cottage, but I want this one on my desk so I can stare at it all day:

... right after I finish eating the roof.
And my very VERY favorite of hers:

The girly squees are strong with this one.
Seriously, pastel rainbows and gingerbread brown are a match made in heaven.
And finally, the perfect traditional gingerbread house, with a heaping side of cozy goodness:
COZY GOODNESS, YOU GUYS.
So, who else is off to buy a gingerbread house kit now? :)
