The Gingerbread House Contest!!

Every year at Christmas time, Peddlers Village, Pa.
has a Gingerbread Competition and display in the gazebo
on the grounds of their shopping village!
I'll share "some" of my favorites here and I want all of you to
pick a favorite as well!!
They are numbered, for ease of voting!!
















They are non-traditional ginger breads, your entry does not have to be a house.
They are fun, colorful and oh so creative.
#15 is Rapunzel, not someone "puking" from the tower,
as the hubs thought (insert smile)!!
The first six were my favorites but if I am to be honest,
I LOVED all of the ones I photographed!


  1. Those are pretty spectacular gingerbread houses! I vote for #6. Happy New Year Debbie!

  2. My favorite is #6. They are all so much fun and thanks for sharing. I wish I could go there in person!

  3. Sending you wishes for a Happy New Year! Bonnie

  4. Wszystkie są śliczne, ale zauroczyło mnie 1. Wspaniałego 2014 roku !
    All are beautiful, but charmed me 1 The Great 2014!

  5. They are all beautiful. My favorite is #2! I would love to have seen them in person.

  6. Wow, these are spectacular! My favorite is #1. I had to laugh at your comment on # 15.
    Wishing you the Happiest of New Years!

  7. i like #4 because it is quirky. laughed at chuck's #15 comment - that was my runner up vote.

  8. Making something like this is a skill I do not possess. However, if I did possess such a skill, I would like to make one like #1. Definitely my favorite! Have a Happy New Year!

  9. My favorite is number 1, it is built on a rock, remember the song - a wise man built his house upon a rock! But they are all adorable and every bit as cute as they should be for gingerbread houses. You have such great places to visit in New Jersey, please keep sharing your local fare with us in other places. Thanks Debbie, loved them!
