Show and Tell Monday

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Shabby Shan's Cottage. The stockings are hung and the Christmas tree is lit. The one thing that was missing was a gingerbread house. So, I bought one of those kits to make one. Of course the candies that came in the kit weren't pink so I had to buy more candy. I was actually surprised that it went so smoothly. I am very pleased with the finished product, what do you think?

My husband Stuart has also been busy building a new birdhouse that will be available for sale at Shabby Shan's Cottage.

Be sure to go to Make Mine Pink for Show and Tell Monday to see what all the other pinkies have been up to! I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!

Until next time...
Shabby Shan

Hi Shannon....I don't know which house I like best! I remember making a gingerbread house with one of the kids once....I think we preserved it for several years before it finally "disappeared"....yours is really cute!

Holiday hugs,
Debbie
