Gingerbread Houses and Whirligigs


On Tuesday we made a special visit to the "VT Folk Life Center" to see their annual gingerbread house exhibit. Wow-eee! They are made by both kids and adults alike, and it's so much fun to see the new ideas each year! Maybe Oona and I will make one next year. I thought it would be fun to share some of the photos for those not in the area in the spirit of the season. They also had a whirligig and a global textile exhibit that are both worth seeing, too. There's a few photos of whirligigs at the end of my photo tour.

Watch out for gingerbread dinnos!
The garden next to the house had exquisite detail.

Hope you enjoyed these silly things as much as I did!
