Spring fever is setting in....

We have had a lovely year weather wise,
 so I have zero complaints
but I'm still ready for longer days and some warmer weather.
Anybody else ready?

Once Upon a Mad Evening.......Mad Men Style.

 Here are a few pictures from last night....
 It was a fun evening again.
 It's to bad that it only comes once a year.
 Katie made a caramel fondue that was too die for.....

 and I borrowed a chocolate fountain from a friend.
 We had my vintage fondue pots and also some electric pots,
lets just say fondue has come along way!

 Now I will just say,
 that my days of Fondue are over in just one night!
What was I thinking, I have never done fondue before and
if it wasn't for Katie, Yumi and Rachel coming early and helping me
They saved the night.

Until next year.....

take care,

 I can't believe my last post was before Christmas......
This next weekend I'm having my annual cocktail party again.
This year were doing Fondue for our food theme.
 For the dress theme this year
 I have opened up the 60's.....
 from the glamour to the mod end.
I can't wait to show you my dress I found for $6
 I love my Pear martini 
but this year I think I might be trying out 
the Blueberry/apple martini!
 We finished up Valentines day at work.....
The kids were so excited!
 Diane remember those Valentines you sent me a few years ago?
We did a Modpodge project  with them in class,
they turned out so cute!

 Check out these creative treats that the children brought in.....
I hope you all had a lovely Valentines Day.

More Mad Men photos to come....
take care,

 What are your plans for the Holidays?

Vintage crafts.....

 I found these little cutie pies in our last estate sale.
 I thought they were so adorable....
 My friend thought they should have gone
in the trash....
Check out the emory board ski's.

 I love his little ski's.
 Little snowballs...

We had freezing rain the last few days with 
warmer temps.....
and Mimi stayed home from school with the flu today. 
So it was just nice to stay close to the fire and watch 
a few Christmas movies.
Take care,

Technical difficulties.......

 I'm sorry I missed out on wishing all of you a 
Happy Thanksgiving!
 Maybe some of you can help a few months back my 
friend came over and needed help accessing her account
well through my help her Gmail account is now the primary
account on my blog.
 So for me, not knowing her password
I was blocked off my blog...... 
I finally changed her password and got logged in.
 How the two of us managed to make such a mess who knows
any suggestions?

I'm so glad I can leave comments again......

These beautiful houses I found at the last estate sale we ran
I love them to pieces.....
