Gingerbread Galore

I'm hoping you can enlarge this photo. This was taken last year just before the holidays, when I pulled out my gingerbread collection. I add to it every year with a few items. I found several new (to me) things at Goodwill last year that aren't in this picture. Then my sister-in-law sent me two adorable stuffed gingerbread people that play tunes. My favorite piece is probably the cute girl teapot in the center compliments of my mom.
I wish my shelves looked this neat and orderly right now. It's already the 2nd week into December and I have yet to put out all my gingerbread. I did have my husband drag the tub upstairs from the basement, though.

We're to have our family over this year for Christmas dinner. So I think I better get a move on, especially with all the baking I want to do. The rest of the house is clean and organized, just not the kitchen. Doesn't help that we had to deal with mice twice in the past few months. It meant removing everything from the lower cupboards and washing - twice... Ugh! And in the kitchen of all places.

Can you see why this would be a wonderful addition? It's even on sale now.

I love your gingerbread display. So cute! I am envious that the rest of your house is clean and organzied. I'm so sorry for the mouse problem. I've been there and I hate it worse than anything! I hope you and your family have a wonderful Christmas. Twyla
