Totally Tag Saling

Things have been a little slow but here's the loot!

I got all this tulle for my next project of tutu making-of course I will post. The white was 2.00 for 13 yards and the bag of every color was 2.00. Some random fabric for 1.00

An interesting chopper kitchen thingy-new for 2.00.

Cute sundress 1.00.

Basket for the pantry redo-1.00.

Another basket for 25 cents and cookie cutters for my new fondant class for 1.00.
I hope everyone else got tons of stuff! Don't forget to stop over at Southern Hospitality where Rhoda hosts the tag sale sharing party-you just won't believe what some people find!

Cake class update

I told you I was behind! So we've been using royal icing which is nice and my job is to make 40 flowers to go on my final cake complete with a basket weave! Here are this weeks flowers, an apple blossom and violets and those green blobs are the petals for the violets. I will try and post more as I accomplish!

He Makes Bread!

So I've been dying to try loads and loads of new recipes but am on a diet and will be until the end of November. So Lon decided he would make homemade French bread. He did such a good job-too good! I ate it!

Kneading and kneading....

and viola! Bon appetite! Yes we saw Julie and Julia the day before... coincidence? I think not!

It's Been Awhile...

I thought that staying home meant having time to do things???? Now I'm in project overload!!! So I'm a little late but I'd like to still join Rhoda over at Southern Hospitality and share what everyone got while tag saling this weekend.

I got a tutu! I will put this away as it was only 25 cents. I also got some pink tulle for the tutus I'm making and it was free!

Wrapping paper-not that I need anymore...but I like having all kinds of things at my fingertips. I got all the bags for 25 cents a piece, the tissue for 25 cents a piece and the lot of bags for 4.00.

Loads of ribbon at 1.00 a piece-but there was a lot of it and most of it had never been opened and had 5.00 price tags on them.

So I've been losing weight-lots of weight and losing clothes too. I love having tons of clothes and now I don't so I bought this green plaid tank-brand new with the tags still on it for 2.00-great for our trip to Disney. Also this cute cotton white dress for 5.00, a little pricey but it also still had the 40.00 tag still on it.

My usual-some books since I won't be teaching this year I have offered to be a classroom reader and thought I could donate the books to the classroom after I read them for 50 cents that sounds good! I also got a candle for 10 cents, some movies for 1.00, some cd's for 1.00 and two onseies-for an ongoing project for 50 cents. I went crazy!!!
