Gingerbread Gems

How cute are these? I purchased them for 99 cents each and what dandies they are. They seem to be ceramic, painted brown, about 6'' tall.....and that's it! They need to be cleaned up, but.....I'm wondering, should I paint them? As if a decorated gingerbread person?
This is what they look like on the flip side.

Yup, they are dandies!!

The news said there is no school at the middle school today due to the big fire. High school is next to the middle school? The Babe must be bummed to have school and not the middle school. Madame does not go in there yet or does she. I should know but can't remember.

I guess the district learned from last year when one school had no water, and the called everyone off using a snow day. Then we went over with the idea the kids would have to go on Sat. to make it up, didn't fly well with the other schools. Sooo only the middle school was cancelled and basicly because it's the command center for all the fire depts. Babe was sick today so he was home anyway. I went to town and believe me......it's in a haze of smoke. They can't go in to fight it from inside, all night spraying. They were still at it when I passed throu. More jobs gone, the welding company must feel awful by now.
Madame is in our town elem. school.

Must have been some fire. Hope no one was harmed.....

As for the gingerbread, I say if you really want to paint them, maybe only the raised parts, buttons, hair lines, etc.... Like a cookie would be decorated...

They are cute. I must've been sleeping when I got on the blogs this morning to miss this. I just looked at my blogroll and there it was. I thought to myself you posted twice today. Sigh. Losing it surely. I might need to add you to Tennessee blogs. Don't forget, your smiling mug will be on the blog tomorra! Survivor tonight. It was so good when they got rid of whoever it was. Oops, forgot again. Goes to show you, maybe I need memory exercises?

Tina, I've not looked at the post, I know the pic isn't like my profile and I've made myself not read it.
I'm going to paint these little dandies, I think they need that to be dressed!
Go! Bob! From Maine! I fear he may be short lived.....

It's okay Dawn, we all grow and change. It was Randy they blindsided last week. Sugar couldn't even conceal her glee. Wasn't it funny? Tonight's, not so. ttyl

I lost something, blindsided Randy? where was I?

Dawn said...

Oh, talking 'bout survivor? We missed last week, only one thus far.....

tina said...

See you missed it when Sugar and Bob gave Randy a fake immunity idol and he used it and was of course thrown off. Sugar started laughing. Bob got mad. It was funny. The game is getting a bit mean though.
