Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

Vintage Thursday

These two cookbooks remind me of when I was first learning to cook. I would get out my new Betty Crochker cookbook and pick a new recipe from it to try. Sometimes they were even good. I learned how to measure, bake, fry, and roast....it was quite an accomplishment for a very young new wife. The cookbook is from the late 60s and the other my mom gave me it is one from 1958 that she had and I liked being able to cook for 2 ...I remember how my kitchen would have flour everywhere and how hard I tried to make everything from scratch. We didn't have any microwaves at that time. How did I ever survive... LOL I know that the cookbooks ar outdated and falling apart, but I can not part with them as they hold some fond memories for me and some silly ones too.....

The Chicken Dance Contest with Velveeta Cheese and the Apron Queen

Ok I have not lost my rocker...nooo I am doing the "Chicken Dance" for the contest over on "Confession's of an Apron Queen's" blog for the Velveeta Cheese challenge... so be sure and pop over there and vote for her....I made her recipe for the "Ay Caramba Chicken Spaghetti" which is really yummy, I didn't add the chiles and hanged it to regular velveeta as I am not into spicy and it was really good.....matter fact it was so good that my family, my DH and I, had to do the the dance after we ate it...

And she is having this challenge which includes a contest for her wonderful aprons...I am in my apron here which is my "spooky" apron for Halloween....now don't you think my DH deserves a reward for his dance???? lol.....

At the stove...now don't forget to vote for The Apron Queen!!!!!!

Vintage Buttons

I love Vintage things and one of the cutest vintage items I got from a swap and used this week was these cool buttons. They are hand painted and big old black vintage style. They worked perfect for my "Little House on the Praire" costume for Halloween I put one on my hat, one on each apron pocket and the last one on my bag...
This jeweled bird used to be all the rage back in the 70s for your bath....I found this beauty at an estate sale.. :)
