Some of my weekend finds!

I took a trip to the "big city" this past weekend....SASKATOON! ooh, ahhh! 
I was able to spend the entire day to myself! No kids to chase, or to listen to wining! (Thanks Mom!!) I had a great visit with my sister and her family! (Love you guys!) And did some shopping of course! Here are some of the treasures I picked up along the way!

Winners find #1! I saw this beauty and my automatic thought kicks in and says, "hey, you can totally make that!" And then reality kicks in and says, "mmmm, ya, no!" So I picked this beauty up for $20!! It will be a beautiful addition to my Master Bedroom Makeover! (Spring 2015 project!)

Winners find #2! There were 2 of these boxes on the clearance racks; 1 was $15 and full of scratches, rips, and stains :( and this one was $12 and in pretty great condition! :D 

THIS. Love this! The photo does not do justice to the color of this treasure! :D My Mom-in-law's next door neighbour saw on Facebook that I was looking for old suitcases, she called me up to come see her before I left, and put this in my hand! THANK YOU SYLVIA!! :D

"Betty" & "Priscilla" Picked these fabulous doll stamps up from Bri's Scrapbook Therapy

AND OF COURSE.....Michaels Haul!!!! The nearest Michaels is 2 hours away from me, so I do try to make a point of going there when I can! I am using the 12 x 12 paper for my summer time album, and the 6 x 6 for my Fan Expo album.

Do You Bake? Pie OR Pizza?

Hello!! Tuesday morning rainy day blues here today! I like to bake on these days! If you read my post a while back, I have joined a fabulous company called Do You Bake? I love all of their products that I've tested thus far! 

Today's venture....Slice of Heaven Apple Pie Za....

Between the kiddos and I, we have managed to polish of almost one whole pie! (cooked in a pie plate it a pie? or a pizza?)

So yummy!! It has a beautiful crumble topping just like an apple crisp, and is baked on a pizza-like crust. 

If you'd like to take a look at this or any other product Do You Bake? has to offer you can check it out at Do You Bake? with Sara Denyer; also on Facebook !

~happy baking!~
