When You're Young At Heart~
It helps if you believe in fairies of course~
Or..Soul Food #33~
I made gingerbread cookies this week..Martha's..w/ Royal Icing~
I had some dough left over and it is no surprise that I have been admiring the cover of my La Cuisine Des Fées..since I got it~
I decided to make a small pattern w/ paper.. and use the leftover gingerbread to play~
It's on the kitchen counter.. I listened to Peau D'âne while finishing it.. and loved every minute~It's my favorite CD this year:)
The Book is a treasure~
I used little cookies my daughter brought me back from Paris.. they were past date:( Edible Rose Buds..Silver Dragées..Chocolate Rocks.. and made 6 little gingerbread people for the 6 Little People in our lives..
I used rolled fondant to cover the roof.. rolled w/ an embossed fondant rolling pin.. and some picket fencing I had left from the outdoor Fairy Garden.
My friend Jojo gave me the sparkly tree last year as a hostess gift for Christmas..
And 2 little gingerbread trees were added..
The shooting star is made from one of the cookie cutters that came w/ my book.
It's far from perfect..But I had fun..and I have to thank the little book for that..
There's a little bottle of wine at the door and a wreath to welcome guests~
Snow everywhere.. and even glue I am ashamed to say.. So it's become a keepsake instead of a treat..
C'est La Vie!
