Happy Thanksgiving! Today we are ready for the third and final installment of the crochet Candy Cottage
Gingerbread House. It’s time to add the decorations—door with heart, candy stick doorposts, gumdrops and icicles.
I went pretty simple with this gingerbread house. My others, Gingerbread Cottage for example, are festooned with
lots of candies, peppermints, candy canes and more. I decided this time to go with a simple tan, pink and white
confection. OK so let’s go!
