On Saturday, Adella and I stopped in at St. George's Church in Middlebury, Connecticut, to see the church's annual presentation of a gingerbread village.  This year's theme was Christmas around the world, and the village had comic book stores, tea and coffee houses, a beer garden, Sponge Bob, and just about everything else you could think of.  

The village makers have only one criteria for the creations:  everything must be edible.  This year, the ladies and gents used a recipe for something that looks like glass.  The windows and lakes looked delicious.  Many of the houses were decorated on the inside as well as the outside.  All great stuff.

    Truly beautiful! When your page loaded I thought the first picture was a cross stitch pattern. But what a surprise it was to see the whole series. Amazing!

  21. Hi, Sandy. I was in the mood to view some of Klaus' beautiful wildlife photos, specifically hoping to find some photos of a Red-tailed Hawk. I just went to Virtua-Gallery only to find the site down. I then went to My World Tuesday only to read the shocking news that Klaus passed away suddenly. I can barely believe it. I read the comments... I see from your post here that you've picked up the baton. Good on you!
