Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village, though. He will not see me stopping here to watch his woods fill up with snow...The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep. ~Robert Frost
What a little dream cabin! I made this last year with my son, who loves to build. I kept the house in a garbage bag and stored it in a dry, cool place. I was amazed that it still looked as good this year! We placed it on the tray and added the snow and the details. Rice cereal is a great snow for these kinds of projects, too! It actually looks like snowflakes! Since everything doesn't have to be edible for our gingerbread house, we sprinkled the snow with a little glitter, added the ornament car and evergreen candle from Pier 1 and stuck a little 'tree' on the side that had lost all its leaves. I just want to curl right up in there by the fire!
