Saturday's Open House Was the Very Best!

Thank you so very, very much for making my Saturday Open House so wonderful.
I prepared all week long getting the Shoppe ready and wanted to
share some of that with you.
There were so many new things added just for the Open House that I didn't know if I could get them all inside, but managed to display most of them.

Can you
believe this stereo still works.....it's loaded with wonderful records from the 50's and 60's....so much fun!


Beautiful armoire with luggage to the ceiling :)


And a case full of "everything"...



Super Art Deco desk....such glamour.




Sweet baby shoes melt my heart.





And then you have to bronze them as well :)


Hand poured candles are one of my most popular items.




But this is my favorite corner...



ahhhh.....so sweet!


Christmas will be here before we know it......






"Peachy" items look beautiful together.


A little bit of "manly stuff"


A cabinet full of figurines...



Another favorite corner of mine.



Tons of china sets...



And vintage glassware.


With glam clothing and chairs..



And altered lamp shades ready to go.


Alabaster is the best...




Comfy white overstuffed chairs...



More china...

Ready to nap?



















And the party began.......!



Lots of food for the sweet tooth!




















Although this isn't the whole Shoppe, I got tired so I cut it short :)
And there were so many requests for recipes this time around that I promised to share them, so here goes the two most requested.
Chocolate Bon Bons
1/2 cup butter
2 lbs powdered sugar
1 can eagle brand milk
8 ounces flaked coconut
3 cups chopped pecans
10 bars Hershey's milk chocolate
1 bag semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 lbs paraffin
Mix first five ingredients, blending well. Form into size "balls" desired and refrigerate for approximately 1 hour. Heat chocolate until thoroughly melted and blended. Dip balls one at a time into chocolate placing on a piece of wax paper to harden......that's it!
Sugar Biscuit Treats
Any biscuit recipe....I use Bisquick for mine.
Make according to directions of recipe or on box.
Roll dough and cut into size treat desired.
Dredge individual biscuit dough in melted butter then into granulate sugar.
Place on cookie sheet and indent the center top with knuckle.
Place a small dollop of jelly or jam into finger knuckle indent and bake according to directions of recipe on box.
Drizzle with a glaze of powdered sugar and water.


I bought an entire estate last week and we cleaned the garage yesterday....it had boxes stuffed inside for over a 58 year period. I can't begin to tell you all the treasures we found, but will share some as they are cleaned and put in the Shoppe....
For today, I am resting........I never thought I would say it, but sometimes
"More actually IS enough"...

  2. Such lovely pretties and beautiful booths just full of all the things I love.

    Sure wish I lived near enough to visit, because I'd be there ready to buy!

    You are going to have lots of fun going through all the estate sale stuff. Wish it were me.

    hugs
