Basement Treasure Hunting Part 2


An idea struck me for using up my old POG collection so I went digging in my basement again and found a few more treasures!  And of course my pogs!


First of all, I found my little mermaid game!!!  I knew I still had it!  Also a Game Boy and Bart vs. The Space Mutants!

I used to LOVE this awesome doll paper punch!  Under one shoe it punches hearts and under the other it punches stars.  This shall now have a permanent spot on my desk.

Another Polly pocket to add to the collection.  The bed turns into a ring on this one!


Even though the paint on the metal body of the Batmobile is chipped pretty bad, I still love it.  Oh memories! 

Now I've got some pog crafting to do!

See ya later!

Count Chocula

Tis the season for spooky cereals!!


 Seasonally Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Frankenberry are made available but this time they also brought back Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute!



I really wanted some Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute but they weren't there this time so instead I have good old Count Chocula.  Only it's not.  It tastes really different.  It barely even tastes like chocolate.  The taste was really bland.  I don't know if I got a bad batch or since its just a seasonal thing they don't bother  getting the taste right.  Oh well!  I'm still going to try Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute.  Hopefully the fruitiness will be more noticeable.  Some times fruity cereals are just more potent. 

What are you some of your favorite seasonal snacks?

Autumn!

It's the first day of Autumn!



Autumn is my favorite season!  I can't wait to pick a pumpkin and go through the corn maze!


And lots of Autumn knitting and crocheting! 

What are you planning this season?

W.I. P. Wednesday: Striped Wrist Warmers



Today's work in progress are my striped wrist warmers.  Not to to be confused with fingerless gloves/mitts, they usually have a thumb hole or gusset and I just didn't feel like it. :) 


I have one done and one to go.  I am using Caron Dazzleaire yarn.  It is so soft and it also has a slight shiny sheen to it!

What are you working on right now?

Reading: Relish

Relish by Lucy Knisley 
"How can you do that?!" 
"With relish!"


This book came highly recommended from Cazz of Nerd Burger.  It was in her Comic book roundup video for May 2013.   
I really enjoyed reading this!  I read it before having to go to work and all the while I was working all I could think about was cheese!  Thanks to the cheese chart I was aggressively studying, lol!
There are a few recipes in this book also, the chocolate chip recipe looks delish but its the pickle recipe I'm excited to try!  Last year my dad pickled most of the cucumbers we grew which I LOVED.  He also pickled some green tomatoes which I haven't grown a taste for yet and still make squeamish faces as I watch him eat them! :P
This year the cucumbers were fail but there are a bunch of late ripening tomatoes that are probably gonna make that jar!  Noms for dad! :)

(This made me laugh!)

For a full review of this book please check out Nerd Burger's comic book roundup video, she goes into really good detail and you will be sold, just like I was.  Really great book! :)

See ya later!
