Tired of stress: have some gingerbread

Sunday, December 29, 2013

Yesterday we visited the Cleveland Botanical Gardens because they had up their annual display of gingerbread houses. Here are some of the highlights.

This church won the grand prize:

Check out the stained glass detail:

There was a paddlewheeler, and a lighthouse to keep it safe:

The fantasy world was represented by Hobbiton, Hogwarts, and a dragon:

And houses from two of my favorite movies. The house from UP, complete with balloons:

And the house from "A Christmas Story," complete with leg lamp:

These were just some of the highlights of an amazing collection. Hope you enjoy!

    Beautiful! Such talent and imagination!
In Prescott Arizona, they have a huge gingerbread house display as well.
I never miss it, even though I'm afraid I gain weight just from breathing the sugar-filled air!
Best wishes!
