It has been such fun to watch the exterior evolve. Each layer getting closer to the sweet vision I imagined.
When It was time to click the lights on, I held my breath. Then, seeing each one glowing, I squealed with delight!
I made the post and porch lights by drilling out clear resin gumdrops for globes and candy cane pieces for poles. The little peppermints made perfect spacers!
For the porch posts, I drilled holes into candy canes and gum drops bases, then used resin to anchor the pins to make them sturdy.
I couldn't resist making a cookie cutter wind chime for the front porch!
The other side was calling for some Tudor style frosting covered timbers.
I just love how the interior lights shine through the candy windows!
As usual, when viewing the photos I see opportunities to add more things. I recon I will, but the main focus will be to get the bedroom finished up in time for Christmas.
Wishing each and every one of you a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of everything to be thankful for!
