WARNING Photo heavy.

My family are all coming to my house for Christmas this year so I was looking to create something to go on my window ledge in the bay window as it is a lovely big space that could take it. I have decided to make a winter wonderland scene with shops and buildings so if any of you see any lovely 3d buildings please let me know I would be extremely grateful. 

What I have today is Harley's, I am also making another of these for Mia but it isn't quite finished as yet. I will then look into making some shops or building for my older grandchildren. 

I love how this house turned out, I used Lori Whitlock's Gingerbread House which comes in three parts and then added a few other bits as listed below main image. I have tried so hard to show this in the dark as it lights up beautifully with just two little tea lights in it but all I keep getting is photo's of the windows lol there must be some technical button I should have pressed.

On this view you can see I added the banner with Harley's name sketched on, I decided to hang my wreath with bakers twine rather than stick it and I also added glossy accents to it. A brad for the door handle and some gems for the gingerbread man's eyes and buttons to finish this side off.

On this side I decided to use Christmas light bulbs instead of the circles that came with it. I did add a star to the top of the tree but it is not easily seen with the overhanging roof.

I couldn't decide whether or not to add another tree on this side or not so it may get changed as yet.
