Childhood Memories ~ Ginger Bread Men

I have just seen these beautiful pottery glazed Folk Horses created by the very talented Dottery Pottery.
The style of the horses brought memories flooding back of when I was young.
When I grew up, for a time we lived in County Durham and travelled from our village to a nearby town to attend the Baptist chapel there.  
Sometimes on a Sunday after the service we would go to one of the nearby houses.  It could even have been the one shown next to the church.  There was a lovely lady there called Mrs Munsey  (not sure of the spelling!) who would give us brown paper bags containing beautifully decorated ginger bread horses and men all outlined with white icing just like the Dottery Pottery horses.
