I have a Baking Diva in the house. Let me start by telling you that I have NO cooking skills at all, and NO calling to cooking...LOL
My Ari, who is 12 years old has been on a baking marathon!!! And enjoying it at that, who would have known. She must take after her grandma. Yup my mom is an amazing cook. One of those cooks that has no recipes, nothing written down, it's all a little bit of this, and a little bit of that :) Now there's hope that my daughter will learn her grandma's recipes :)
Lola B posted last night this recipe for Bliss Bars... and when I got home from work, look what was waiting for me :) I am so blessed!!!
Treasures N Junk Christmas Party!!! Chad and Jana (Owner's of Treasure's N Junk) Hosted their 2nd Annual Dealer Christmas Party.
The party kicked off with a great dealer potluck...yummmm :)
(Chad being MC)
The fun was under way with a Treasure Hunt!!! Yes, a treasure hunt in an Antique Mall!!! How crazy is that!!! 10 items were hidden through out the mall. All treasures were found and prizes won!!!
We all had a side aching, laugh till you drop time with the infamous White Elephant Gift Exchange! Never in my life had I seen such creative junk gifts!!! I had never participated in a White Elephant, I didn't know what to give or what to expect. My gift was so blah, nice but blah, compared to the toilet paper snowman or the chocolate covered crickets... next year I won't be bringing Christmas Cd's.
(Tammy recieving the toilet paper snowman) A great time was had by all, but as if that wasn't enough Chad and Jana handed each of their dealers a Gift Certificate for Treasures N Junk. Remember I am shopper first :)
(Jana ready to hand out the gift certificates) Merry Christmas from Treasures N Junk and me, dealer #99 :)
is finished. We are so excited, because it means that Christmas has officially arrived. My decorations might not be vintage (yet) but my Ari & Aleyah Love our tree cuz it's pink & girly
Christmas Tree Poem
Christmas tree, sparkling bright, Filled with baubles, warmth and light, Precious symbol of our affection For Christmas time and its perfection, Show each night your radiant glory For "oohs" and "aahs" obligatory.
Christmas tree, don't let us down; Show something special at your crown, An angel, star, or splendid piece To make our holiday joy increase, An icon, pure, ideal, complete, For Christmas memories fond and sweet.
Glitter and glisten, gleam and glow, Oh Christmas tree, we love you so!
Thank you for visiting my Blog. I am married to my best friend, have 3 wonderful kids, 4 crazy dogs and a turtle. I have been antiquing for as long as I can remember. I spend my weekends at my booths in Riverside Galleria and at Treasures N Junk. I love the thrill of looking for and finding treasures :)
