If I was a bed, I would stay unmade.

Thanks!  It really was a blast to make.  Now I'm dreaming of next year's house....

It has been a lifelong dream of mine to not only visit Ireland
but to live there someday! And what would be the perfect
place to live while in Ireland? Why a thatched roof cottage of course!

Yours looks so authentic it's amazing! Great job!!!

... and they lived happily ever after ... in Ireland.

I've got to say, my favourite part is the "thatch". Very cute!

Thank you!  I used the full size shredded wheat biscuits split in half.  About half ended up on the house because they are so brittle!

I was scrolling through the gingerbread houses and stopped at this one because it made me think of my childhood in germany. It also kind of reminds me of the old little churches I glimpsed driving through small towns. Great job!
