Go Ask Alice

Yesterday I went to Wonderland!!  So FUN!  In 3D too!

I just loved the movie, and the characters, and the actors & actresses, and ALICE, & CHES (The Cheshire Cat of course!)!! 

I'm now on the look-out for all Vintage items linked to Alive in Wonderland or Through the Looking Glass!

Now... onto JUNK.  While on holiday I did NOT once get to go junk hunting!  :o(  
The Best TimE to do this (junk hunting) is of course while on holiday!!  I'm bummed! 

The weather is getting warm, so the yard & garage sales will be starting!  Perfect time for scavengers!!

I used beads (that I was going to destash) on plain
quilting pins to add a special look to thise ordinary staight pins!!  Very easy, just use a good grade of glue or epoxy.  Enjoy!

New Year....New Allergies

New Year, twenty-ten!
 Along with allergies. 
 You see I've been an itchy mess for, well, most of last year.  Off to the doctor I went for a blood test.  The test shows what you are allergic to.  Easy right?  NO!  For the last 17 years I've been avoiding white potatoes.  I always have to say, "Not sweet potatoes, which I don't like", and so 6mos ago, guess what....I can eat them, the white potatoes!  Yeah!  French fries, mashed potatoes, potato chips, baked, twice baked (no cheese, allergic to that as well), potato soup!!  You get the idea.  So, I am literally eating potatoes every stinkin' day!  Yummm    Last week I found out that I'm still allergic to them as well as some things that were show "safe" by the blood test.  So sorry for my french, but, WTF??  My newest "stay away from it, it'll kill you"  is CORN!  I live in a corn producing state!  No corn on the cob, no tacos ( I miss them, all Mexican food), no corn chips, no pop (only due to the fact that it is sweetened with high fructose CORN syrup), no microwave PoPcOrn, no corn dogs!  No corn fresh, frozen or canned!

Now for the POSITIVES, because we always look to the things we CAN have.  I can have all the PEANUTS I want!!  Skippy makes a great, no corn syrup, natural peanut butter, try it you'll LOVE it!  I can have ALL WHEAT products, good thing because I LOVE Kashi Autumn Harvest, try it, it is NOTHING like shreaded wheat (yuk). So, Hello 20-10, A new year with a whole new plan of action,  Cooking & baking for allergies to: corn,rye,barley,malt, egg yolk,mushrooms,cheese,lamb,pears & apples!  Tricky but do-able.... I am not, now listen carefully, this is why the above list is "do" able, DARK CHOCOLATE!!!!  All is good, when there is chocolate!!! 

Smile & help support the victims of the Haiti earthquake!!  XoxO
