Yesterday, M&D, C&K and I went on the Pilgrim Hall Museum's Second Annual Holiday House Tour. While this sweet ole house wasn't open for tours, it was up for sale in a silent auction. Actually, there were three gingerbread houses available for silent auction. This one was by far my favorite. If you look at the windows you can see that they are made of pretzel squares which you can see through. The blue you see is a light that was inside the gingerbread house. I thought it was very creative that they made it so the house was lit from within. It really gave it that extra special touch. Perhaps, even made it a little more delectable!
The gingerbread house was on display in one of the model homes at The Pinehills, Plymouth. The home consisted of two major structures connected by a "floating bridge." The bridge acts as a connector from one portion of the home to the other and is also a gathering place between the buildings for morning breakfast or tea. Simply put, it was two houses connected together (sort of like the gingerbread house with the attached lighthouse). I liked the half of the house where this gingerbread display was located. It was considered the carriage house. It was smaller than the other half, more quaint and inviting. It also may have helped that they had cookies baking in the oven and free samples available!
