Thrifting Frenzy

Winter finally decided to show up around here.  Instead of one simple snow day, I got a week!  No complaints here.  This girl likes her snow days.

Snow days have nothing to do with thrifting.

Welllllll, that's not completely true.  I did go thrifting on one of my snow days.  It was a great excursion!  The weather probably kept people home, which meant these goodies were left behind for me........

The two tribal-esque crocheted pieces are a mystery.  They are about the size of a small rug.  I would love to know more about them!  Are they rugs?  Wall hangings?

Clearly, I'm kind of addicted to anything crocheted right now.  My current afghan collection has gone way overboard.

But that obviously doesn't stop me.........

Vintage ticking covered feather pillows are a weakness....

And always Samsonite....

I'm proud to say that I've already parted with at least one of these items!  The rattan stool is currently in the booth at Relics.......

And the booth just so happens to be 10% off right now!  Check out my Facebook page for photos of some recently added items!

Don't you need to work on your afghan stash too?  Or is that rattan stool calling your name?

Homemade Waffles

The first official snow day of the school year is finally here!  It's safe to say that there's nothing better than a big breakfast made at leisure on a cold, snowy morning.

Last year's approximate 15 snow days forced me to be resourceful.  I would always try to prepare for snowpocalyptic forecasts, but sometimes, those days caught me off guard.

And that's where this recipe comes in handy.  All the ingredients are pantry staples!  I can guarantee that everything on this list of ingredients is probably in your house on the regular!  So handy on that surprise snow day!  Not to mention, healthier than a prepackaged mix too!

Homemade Waffles
(recipe source)

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups milk
1 stick of melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

Prepare your waffle iron by preheating and greasing.  In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, beat the eggs until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla, milk, and melted butter to eggs and stir.  Pour egg mixture into dry ingredients.  Mix until smooth.  Follow directions for your waffle iron regarding batter amount and cook time!  Top with syrup and butter.  Makes 4 to 6 waffles!

*These freeze like a dream!  I break them into fourths before freezing because the pieces fit in my toaster perfectly!  They toast beautifully too!  And I love the leftovers because they don't taste like leftovers!

Now, what to do with the rest of my snow day.....

Stay in pajamas?
