This one REALLY smells so Yummy! We were at our local Anthropolgie store the other day finishing up some Christmas shopping when my husband spotted this candle. Upon smelling this candle, I HAD to have it. Candle smells like warm spicy Gingerbread. I put it up on our mantle and have not even lit it yet and when we got home yesterday my family room was enveloped in the smell of warm Gingerbread. Get your while they last.
Even the “young man” in your life can be indulged with Gingerbread via this Gingerbread man clipon tie! This polyester necktie features a Santa suit clad Taz chasing after some gingerbread men, with his glass of milk in hand. Design is on a black background. Though Taz has only been around since the 1950′s, gingerbread men actually go back as far as the seventeenth century. So cute!

Grove Park Inn National Gingerbread House Competition 11-17-08
GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Mrs. Billie Mochow of Burns, TN
From Grove Park Inn, Billie Mochow from Burns, Tennessee has been named the Grand Prize winner of the 2008 National Gingerbread House Competition at The Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa in Asheville, N.C. Seven judges deliberated for more than six hours on Monday to determine the winners among four categories: Adult, Teen 13-17 and Youth 9 to 12 and Child 8 and under. More than 600 spectators watched the judging process in the resort’s Grand Ballroom. There were a total of 124 Youth, 73 Teen and 203 Adult entries in the 17th Annual National Gingerbread House Competition.
The difference between the grand prize winner, a whimsical holiday carousel by Billie Mochow of Burns, Tenn., and the first place winner, was just a couple points. Mochow’s dedication may have made the difference. She said she ended up having to bake the deer for the carousel 36 times.
Also new: A doubled cash prize for the grand prize winner. Mochow, who won first place last year, took home $3,000 and a two-night stay at the inn. More than $12,000 in cash and prizes were awarded during Monday night’s ceremony. Read More Here.
