Candy House Update

I'm still slowly working on the candy house in between working on swap items.  I just bought some windows and one door.  The second door and an interior door for the bathroom will have to wait till later :)  I added some red rope licorice to the lollipop railing on the balcony and I started shingling a little bit of the roof.  I ordered a really fun mold that looks like frosting which I plan to use around the windows and the edges of the house.  I am having so much fun building this house- it's like I'm a little kid again and it takes my mind off of all of the stress from work and everyday life right now.  Sorry about the poor pictures- I took them quickly before work and I think I should have dragged a lamp over to point at the house. 
Here's a little close up of the balcony:

OMG KIM!!!! It's looking so cool!!! I'm just loving it! You did super on the candy canes!! You even made the stripes two-toned! I clicked to enlarge it and it made me hungry for sweets - and that's pretty good considering I don't really have a big sweet tooth.

This house always makes me smile :). Without fail , every time. Why?

Maybe because its so whimsical and random and wild :). No rules, carefree, wonderful.
