Chocolate, Chocolate




Sunday Savor has arrived!!
So pull up a chair and relax.
There is a tasty recipe ahead
and it comes with a twist!




Brownie Mix

1 C Sugar
1/2 C All Purpose Flour
1/3 C Cocoa
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Baking Powder

*Put mix in a zip lock baggie 
or mason jar marked with the 
next set of instructions.
(This would be the twist)

At BAKING TIME

Add: 2 Eggs
           1/2 C Vegetable Oil
           1 tsp. Vanilla

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25
mins in a 8 x 8 OR 9 x 9 pan.
Check after 12-15 mins. 
Remove when brownies are 
done. Let cool and ENJOY!!

**I did not see anywhere in 
this recipe to grease the pan 
bottom so I would say that 
does not have to done before 
pouring the mix into the pan.
You be the judge.

The thing I like about this
recipe 
is that you could make 

up a bunch the dry ingredient 
bags to have on hand for when
 you are craving brownies.
You could also make up the 
jars as gifts.  (ie: Christmas
is coming)
Let me know if you make 
these.

Good Wednesday evening!
Lot's happening here, so
let's get going, shall we?

Above is my new summer 
do--a bit shorter than I 
wear during the school 
year. Light and airy and 
easy to take care of.






I have been busy crafting, 
made four bracelets. The
two on the upper left are 
mine and the the two on 
the lower right are for a 
friend's birthday. Lot's
of fun making these.





I made a skirt for myself
without a pattern. Several 
years ago I made a similar
skirt.




This one has a slit in the 
back, I wasn't sure if I 
could do it but I did and 
I love it!




Father's Day fun.





Selfie at a fountain.





I bought these letters a 
couple of months ago, 
thinking I would paint 
them.




Instead of painting them I 
covered them with scrap-
book paper. I chose a print 
that has some of the colors 
in our living room. When I 
hang them up, I'll post a pic.

As most of you are doing
Summer has arrived with
heat. Our average temp 
in June is 85 well this 
June we have been in 
the 90's and today we 
hit 100! NOT impressed. 
I do better "working my 
way" into the HOT part 
of Summer.
The heat has played a big 
factor in my motivation to
get some things accomplished.
Hopefully it cools down 
before it should really be hot.


Hope everyone in well and
staying cool!

Wow! Is it Wednesday ALREADY?

Today we are talking GARAGE SALES.

See those two lovelies above? Well, hold
on tight because I purchased them for a
buck apiece--that's right $1 each! We 
just happen to have cushion for the 
seats but I will need to come up with 
back cushions.  Love them!!!




This little beauty is my new "deck buffet."
I have sprayed it with Poly once but I 
am going to give it one more coat.
The bowl was a sale find, I filled it with 
rocks I had--need a bit more and put one
of those gel fire starters in the middle. 
The candle holder on the bottom will 
have a candle on it when it is not so 
blazing HOT outside. This little beaut 
came to me for $ 3 buck a roos.
It will come in handy when we have 
company or a party on the deck. 
Woo Hoo!

More sale pics in the coming soon.

What have you been up to?

Easy Peasy Recipe





Good Afternoon Everyone, I
hope you are having a FAB
Sunday!

Sunday Savor has been dusted off
for it's Summer reappearance.

Today we have a fun party recipe, 
great for those upcoming parties
everyone will be attending or
having in their backyard.





This was my Mom's "go to"
party treat AND it is sooo
easy!!

Ham Roll-Ups

Items needed:

1 pkg of Oscar Meyer
Ham (in the square yellow
pkg--about 20 slices)
2 pkgs of Cream Cheese
I used Garden Veggie and 
Garlic with Red Peppers
Toothpicks

Take out a slice of ham, blot
with a paper towel spread 
with the cream cheese, roll 
it up and place seam side 
down on a plate.

I was able to put cheese on 
10 slices of ham for each 
cheese flavor.

When finished rolling, place 
them in the fridge covered 
lightly with foil "to set."

Two hours or so before your 
party, slice each roll into thirds, 
placing the toothpicks in each 
section before or after you slice 
the roll into sections.

Arrange them on your plate or 
tray and cover again. Serve 
when ready.

Enjoy!!

****Note-- I used different
colored toothpicks for each
cheese flavor.If you only use 
one flavor use non-colored 
toothpicks.
I also made a small note saying
what the flavors were ie: green 
and blue Garden Veggie and 
placed it by my plate.

Hello All!
Hope this Wednesday finds you well.

Today is "Best Friends Day" and I would
like to wish ALL my friends near and 
far a good day!
I love each of you and couldn't get 
along without you!





Well, last Saturday was a big day 
for a special lady and her family. 
Ken and I were invited to this 
lovely venue for her wedding!





This is the Thompson Barn, it 
has changed drastically over 
the last 50 +++ years.
Our lovely city has turned it 
into the MOST sought after 
venue for weddings in the city. 
Brides must reserve it a year in 
advance in order to secure it for 
their big day!





Upon arrival guests were greeted 
with the chalkboard and picture 
table. Loved the pictures!








This would be the inside of the 
barn. The restoration work is 
AMAZING!





Chairs were set up for the ceremony 
on the second floor of the barn.





I'm going to call the theme for this 
wedding feminine with a rustic touch
here and there. This beautiful wreath
was hanging on the doors in the front.





During the cocktail hour and while
other pictures were being taken, 
ceremony area turned into the 
dining and dancing area.
this was our table. Pretty glass

bowl with floating candles and 
greenery. If you look closely
or biggie the pic, you will see
the small carved gourds by the 
champagne flutes. The groom's 
mother worked in Peru for four 
years and knows the couple who 
carved them. Each one has a 
ribbon with the date and their 
names on it.





Here is the beautiful bride with her 
family. Dad, Mom and brother.





Their first dance as husband
and wife.





A beautiful cake. I love the topper,
it was cut out of wood!
The bride and groom are outdoors
people( ie: hunting, fishing etc.) so 
I thought it was a fitting topper for 
them.





When trying to figure out their 
gift, I ran into a wall...everything 
on their registry was already 
purchased and I am not too hep 
on getting something from there
anyway. Soo after a discussion
with my friend, the Mother of the 
bride I decide to make another jar.  
I made a Honeymoon jar. I heard 
from the bride the next day "we 
loved your gift!"





A wedding selfie.
It was a  beautiful evening 
for a lovely couple. We
wish them many years
of HAPPINESS!!

Garage sales are all over the
place and I have been to a
few as soon as I can I will 
post pics of my treasures.

Fab Friday




Hello! Everyone!!

I hope this post finds you doing well.


Today all the neighborhoods were 

having garage sales. I hit a few this 
morning and early afternoon. Very 
happy with all my goodies which by 
the way are still in my car. As soon 
as soon I get things organized I will 
post some pics of my loot.

Tonight we are having dinner with 

some friends and tomorrow is the 
BIG wedding of our good friend's 
daughter! We are so looking 
forward to this big event!!

Sunday will find us dead tired and 

playing "catch up."

Big plans for your weekend? 


Enjoy!
