~quilting with Mary Engelbreit~

This is one of my  pre-cut quilt block kits being added to my ETSY shop....

This one is made of darling  Mary Engelbreit  fabrics...

The kit includes everything you need to make (9) eight inch blocks.
Four different teapots designs make up he main center squares.

Small "cherry fabric" triangles frame the center teapot square...
and the larger triangles are the final addition to the 8" quilt block.

I have taken care of the tedious cutting and measuring part of quilt making.
You can just get on with the fun piecing together of the pre-cut blocks!

More fun blocks to come...
Stay Cozy, Carrie

Delicious Vitalicious!

Have you ever tried Muffin Tops from Vitalicious?
They are fabulous !
I have been purchasing them online for years
I eat the chocolate ones right out of the freezer!
Now they are also available in many stores including my local Target!
But recently I purchase their muffin mix online!

.... it came with one of their silicone pans 
for making the vita tops right at home!

They came out perfectly...and I have 12 okay 11(had to eat a warm one) of them in my freezer for a 
chocolate satisfying low calorie healthy snack!

All Vitalicious products are Kosher certified and all natural with no
artificial additives or preservatives.
The deep chocolate VitaTops are made with real cocoa, egg whites, chocolate chips, 
whole wheat  & organic sugar.
Each muffin top contains 100 calories, 1.5g fat, 
and a whopping 9 g fiber!

They come in a variety of delicious flavors...I have tried many of them...
and Vitalicious offers many other delicious products too.

*I am not getting paid by Vitalicious in any way for this endorsement...
I simply love their company, customer service and of course their products*

Give them a try!

Stay Cozy, Carrie

1950's mayonnaise making...

So this was the way to make homemade Mayonnaise....
back in the day...

 I  found this Vintage Wesson Oil Mayonnaise maker
during my "saturday thrifting"
So cool ~ The recipe is embossed right on the jar...

~an egg, 2 tbls. lemon juice or vinegar, a teaspoon each
mustard, salt,sugar and a dash of pepper
Beat in thoroughly as you pour from can
one pint Wesson oil!

Once you were done adding all the oil, your mayonnaise was finished.  
The lid was specially made so the oil would gradually drizzle down on the other
ingredients while you beat everything together.

This Vintage Find is listed in my EBAY shop!

Some New Year Prep...

 Today we worked around the house
getting ready for the new year....
  Since we are limited on space...we found a little table 
for $6.99 at the thrift store 
and set up a small office area in the living room...

 Then my husband worked outside trimming the bushes and 
shrubs for the winter season...

While I straightened up the pantry.......                                              
...and organized my extra dish/appliance 
area in the garage...                                                       

I rewarded us both with some tuna burger 
sandwiches... so we could kick off the new year 
with a healthy & delicious meal!

It felt good to get things organized....
...now I'm off to tackle my craft room!

Happy New Year!
Stay Cozy,
