Today's door is: DOOR #14 and behind it we find: THE GINGERBREAD MAN BAKERY! This model like the Christmas Tree in the Elves' Workshop was inspired by and bought from "ronarizona20052009" an ebay vendor. He is aware I upgraded his design and will be getting a link to this page! Once again as cyberfrank noticed my FRIENDS stickers were handy to add the bling it needed. While on ebay I noticed the red and white "umbrella" just like the one in my reference photo, so I switched out the plain white one for it! I added a bakery case full of iced gingerbread cookies and a patron! I had fun improving ronarizona's design. I added all the colors of the rainbow as candy on the roof, I changed how he did the roof by using "rocker" pieces instead of his 1x2 with stick ones! I widened it by 2 studs and I added windows. I got rid of his clear green round bricks and...of course I added the Christmas Wreath! I added a lollipop and a lamp (have you noticed that the lamps have the same elements?). I gave him a larger base to accommodate these additions as well as the tree! Also have you noticed I am trying to keep red mugs as well, except for the elves which have color coded ones for themselves? And just as almost all the "SANTA VILLAGES" I saw in my referencing for this series have a man dressed up in a GINGERBREAD MAN costume, I have him being the seller in the bakery! Oh I added a seat for him to sit on! You'll notice some of the people in the "village" have purchased these special treats throughout the village! After we eat our delicious cookies want to go see the stable where they keep the horses?
About this creation
And here you see the inspiration for it! Thank you ronarizona for giving me the basic ideas for this and the elves' tree!
