I am building a small thing (as a member of BLTG) for a library Christmas display, I was thinking of a stereotypical scene and maybe juxtaposing it with an Australian Christmas scene.

Here is my stereotypical kind of scene, a gingerbread house with a liquorice all-sorts fence, lollipop trees and muffin shrubs.

Thanks,

I am glad I don't have any lollies in the house, because building this has given me some serious cravings  :laugh:

That looks sugary awesome and extra tasty! Love it! I used to handmake gingerbread houses for christmas until a few years ago but never thought of doing one in Lego!

The recreation of actual liqourice-pieces for fence posts is my favourite detail! (even though I despise liquorice for the life of me *shudder*)

:thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Be well all!

Thanks you.  Originally I did have that idea (to go with my recent three little pigs house).  So, maybe it will evolve into the witches house from Hansel and Gretel.

It will then become the house for all seasons!!

We're onto you-- you went into the future with your time machine and picked up the Winter Candy Shop, only to bring it back to 2011 and claim it as your own-- DIDN'T YOU???!!!!

Or, maybe not.  Nice work!

EVERYTHING IS OVERPRICED I MEAN AWESOME!!!

Sweet! (Pun intended)

I'm very impressed at the level of detail. Definitely, thanks for sharing.

It made me hungry so I'd better go and grab a snack.  :tongue:

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone.  I hope it works well in the library Christmas display.

I should get cracking to see if I can finish the Australian summer Christmas scene now.

Excellent gingerbread house!  The colors you used were terrific, it looks like real gingerbread and candy.  It will be a great addition to any Christmas display.

Congrats,

If I didn't know better I would say it is a real Gingerbread house. It captures the look and feel of one quite nicely. A great addition for the upcoming holiday. Brilliant work.

Not usually a fa of "Holiday" themed things, but this is very well done! It looks just like the real thing!

That's a great MOC Iorax! TLG should definitely do a gingerbread house as part of their "winter" exclusive theme :classic:

My favourite part of your MOC is the licorice fence, although the pine tree is also fairly unusual with its plates and it looks great!
