Tammy's Victorian Gingerbread House with Chimney

I love the fun of makeing gingerbread houses. I love the challenge of it to see if I can top myself the next year. Although it has been a number of years since my last big house project, I never get tired of wanting to do a Gingerbread house. I like to make them colorful.
I took a Victorian Gingerbread pattern and made my own Gingerbread House, with a couple modifications, ( I added a Chimney) I had such a great time with this. I'm not sure how many hours it took. I took my time.
The house is made from scratch with Royal Icing.
Chimney: Chocolate Covered Raisin.
Roof: Nickle wafers
Side walk: Peppermint patties and those licorice things.
Fence. Sugar wafers with 2 tone (red and green) Wilton iceing on top.
Pond. Blue icing.
Tree , present, snowman: Not gingerbread. yea its' fake. :)
Wreaths on front door. Gingerbread.
The poinsettia leaves on the fence are those table decorations you throw around on a table.
