Camp Good Grief’s Gingerbread Village, Part 1

All December long I was yearning to view this gingerbread display at the Memphis Botanic Gardens, but other things seem to come up. I finally got the chance during the very last week  (I sorta played hooky from work…..shhhh!). Now I wish two things happened: 1) I had played hooky gone sooner, 2) I had gotten around to posting this weeks ago. The amount of detail and sweet treats that went into this village is unbelievable.

If I had to guess, the village was displayed on a 9′ x 12′ table
