Gingerbread House!

What do you do with a gingerbread house that was never decorated for Christmas?  I don't know what you do, I turn it into a gingerbread LOVE SHACK for Valentine's Day!

While everyone is heading somewhere warm, I'll be heading to the LOVE SHACK!
The flowers are blooming and grass is growing, so I'm pretty sure it's in the tropics.
And LOVE is written all over it!
So many reasons to go...
Even the roof is full of love!
The grass is surrounding the cobblestone walk to the front door.  It's a Love Shack for sure.
And I'm going.  You want to come too?
This is where I started and then three days later, I was finished.
Yep, that's the tutorial.
 
Love Shack, Baby Love Shack!

  1. I can totally believe it took you three days to decorate this house. OMG, it is absolutely beautiful. It's so neat and everything is perfectly piped. I'm in awe of your skills. Wow! Pinning.

    1. Thanks Beth, I'll confess, I didn't work on it all day each day but I did work on it for three days. The sides kept falling apart when I was building it. I almost quit and ate it!!

  8. I love this! I just packed away the gingerbread houses we didn't get decorated at Christmas time and now thinking I should go unpack them and let the kids decorate them for Valentine's day! Thank you for such a great idea. It is absolutely beautiful and I totally agree that it should be featured on a magazine cover!
