Yeasty Photo Safari: Gingerbread Village

A Sweet Display in Downtown Pittsburgh

We happened upon a holiday display of creative gingerbread houses the other day in Pittsburgh, in the Downtown PPG complex. It's amazing what chidlren and adults can do with some crackers and icing.

The houses were on display inside the buildings, which border the city park where a ice skating ring was installed a few years ago. Families and single skaters made their way 'round and 'round the decorated tree, only stopping to have hot chocolate.

Inside, with the sun streaming in the windows, we found our own source for hot chocolate and holiday music, performed by young symphony musicians.

Here are just some of the houses that were on display. I have always wanted to make one of these and for some reason haven't done it. This was quite the inspriation to get it done!

Creative Spotlight

Caps for Kids program

Residents at Sherwood Oaks. a retirement community in Cranberry Township, north of Pittsburgh, have once again covered this Christmas tree with handmade hats they created throughout the year. Using different patterns and yarns, the women knit and crochet hundreds of hats to be given to the local Caps for Kids program, which then distributes them to needy children.

What a lovely way to show caring creativity to children who may otherwise be cold this winter. The crafters also make some scarves and mittens for the children.

A lovely project.
