We were on vacation in Lake Placid when the contest was posted. Gave me a great excuse to shop at the little boutique I'd been in the day before! All of the Adirondack chairs were rubber stamped, and I used marbleing on the background for those, and to create the landscape in the central postcard. For the Adirondack Park sign I cut a stencil for the lettering and applied it over the piped boards. (I don't recommend this, flat surface please!)
I have pictures of the individual cookies on my Facebook page:
Love this collection, great job
Beautiful set! I bought that same stamp - I loved that it had a book next to the chair. Nothing more relaxing!
Amazing how you always put things together beautifully and well thought out.
Outstanding!! This cookie set really evokes a sense of relaxation & contemplation. I especially love the picnic basket!
this is one of the nicest sets Ive ever seen. Its like a tourist pamphlet for Lake Placid. Love all your soft colors and the middle cookie speaks for itself. also the texture of wood logs on one. Completes the whole set.Incredible.
Thanks for entering the contest! Best of luck!
Mike, my goal is to get you to not just say a swear, but actually type a curse word before you catch yourself! Next set maybe!
WOW! Great set!
probably too late for me to go to architecture school??!
I love this set, the scents are spectacular and cookies are very well crafted. I can almost feel the breeze from the lake and peace. Thanks for sharing
Beautiful set of cookies, and very relaxing too! Congratulations!
Just. A. Beautiful. Set. Your cookies are great!
Such an amazing set. The Lake Placid centerpiece cookie is incredible, and the basket looks real! Love ALL of the cookies. Great job!
These are so AMAZING Rebecca!!! I just love looking at them...and might spend the day doing so
I can't add to what the others have said. Wonderful!
amazing set, so good!
I just came over here to stare at these again. You are a wonder! My husband votes for your set...
Ditto what Semi Sweet Mike said!
OMG... Unbelievable.. great job!!
Really well done set! Especially love the "rustic cut" look
Thank you to everyone for all of the nice comments! This was such a fun set to do, and I love that it was appreciated. I gave out the cookies to some of my Adirondack architectural clients, and some got eaten, but I think some are now decorating ADK camp mantels- perfect!
