Let The Shopping Begin

I heard the bell sound this morning.

No not the Wallstreet bell, the bell signaling for the shopping frenzy to begin. Did you hear the bell too?  Did you take off before the crack of dawn to get inline and shop till you dropped?

Well not me. I slept in this morning in a nice warm bed and then I got up to a pot of coffee and turned on the computer. You see this year I have made a deal with myself. I am not going to shop the big Corporations this year. Instead I am going to help all the little business I can by shopping with the little guys.

Now there is probably lots of ways to do this but the best way I found is to shop on ETSY. You can find anything you want on etsy. Lots of handmade items from quality craftsman. Artist with the greatest skills I have ever seen all in one place. Also Vintage items can be found on etsy. A huge assortment of collectibles which make great gifts for that "picker" on your gift list.

You can even shop on etsy to fill up your goodies table for that holiday party you are putting on. All kinds of chocolate.  Suckers and chocolate. Chocolate covered pretzels. Caramel apples and did I mention chocolate.

This is a collection of items that will show an assortment all in one place, take a look at this treasuryBNR If you are a seller on etsy this will be of total interest to you. It is a BNR (buy n replace). So come have some fun with us and let us see what you got. This is a great way to promote your shop.

Thank You

Today is Veteran's day. And we all need to stop and thank all the Veterans who have ever served this country. They have all played a part in seeing that we can live in the greatest country in the world. That we can be safe and that we can be free. That our children and grandchildren can walk the street and not be afraid.

My husband is a Vietnam Veteran who proudly signed and served right after graduating High School. Thank you honey.

My dad served in Germany during the occupation. Thank you Dad.

My father-in-law was in the Navy. Thank you Pap.

My son is presently serving in the USAF. Thank you Son.

Thank you seems so little to say. But I guess I am not good enough with words to figure out more. My heart is so proud of all of you.

And thanks to all the veteran's in the families of those who follow my blog.

And may God Bless all of you and keep you safe.

Spicy Banana Cookies

I made some cookies the other night and I thought I would share the process. They are not fancy but they were very tasty. The perfect cookie to throw in the oven as company arrives and then all that is left to do is make a pot of coffee.

I started with a box of spice cake mix and I stirred in 3 large overripe bananas that had been smashed. Added 1 tsp. real vanilla and about a tablespoon of water. (adjust this according to how moist you bananas are). After mixed I folded in 1/2 dried cranberries and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Bake at 350*, till edges start to brown.

Give them a try for the next time you just need something fresh baked or maybe for an extra cookie on the cookie tray.

Do you have a quick cookie you would love to show off? Share it with us, I would love to see what you have.

I made a treasury....

It is the first one I have ever done and I believe it is the cutest thing I have ever seen. A treasury is a collection of  "like" items on Etsy. And these are all alike because they are monsters.
Take a look and give it some love. There are alot of talented people who sell on ETSY and alot of it would make great holiday gifts.
