A bit of Rummaging, this and that

Happy Sweet Friday!! 
It's been wet, cold, and rainy here the last few days, but the weekend is suppose to be a little bit brighter. 
A week or so ago, my sister and I went to a church rummage sale. I was telling her those sometimes are just the best!! I found some of these pretty vintage earrings and brooch pins there.

I found this, I'm going to spray paint it, maybe a white creamy color 
(if it ever stops raining or being so windy outside! lol)
I thought it would be a good display for some jewelry, i'm still thinking some other ideas up for it too!
The front side is open.

Jill over at A Little Bit of Everything  sent me this vintage game, Probe!! She had found a few for her smash books and I had commented that I was on the look out for one, and had never seen one when I was out hunting. Well what do you know, she found one right away and sent it to me!! Thank you so much Jill! I sent her some yummy Cranberry Marmalade warmer tarts for her to enjoy! :) 

Luke came home just the other afternoon from work and said it smells like blueberry muffins, I told him I only made a warmer tart batch (and that I had tricked him...haha) .... since the muffins really did sound so good, we whipped out this delicious blueberry loaf! It was pretty tasty!! 

Here's the recipe:: 

2 1/2 cups Jiffy Mix
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup Milk
1 egg 
2 teaspoons melted shortening
2 cup blueberries

~Blend Jiffy, sugar, milk, egg, and shortening by hand. Fold in blueberries
~Grease 9x10 loaf pan
~Bake 375 degrees 40-50 min (I think I ended up cooking mine about 55 min)
It's not too sweet, and a little tartness comes out from the blueberries. (: 
And then the next day you can re heat it with some vanilla ice cream or put a little butter on top!! Yummy!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!!

  1. Just when I was telling myself it's time to cut down on the goodies you post that yummy recipe...oh, the humanity!! =D

  2. Sweet new finds and love the game cards!! Yummy bread!! Wishing you a fabulous weekend!! xo Heather

  3. Love all your finds. I must be tired and I need to go home because I read that Jill sent you an "invisible" game and I was like what? How do you play an invisible game. Yeah, leaving work now and heading home. I need some rest obviously!

  4. I have never heard of Probe, but the cards would be great in projects. I can smell the blueberries now!

  5. Yippee for the weekend! So many fun new treasures. I'm always on the look out for game cards. Your bread recipe looks amazing. Fingers crossed our wet cold weather finally breaks.

  6. I have never heard of Probe but I will have to watch for it. I love old cards from games. I always love finding old jewelry, too. Church rummage sales are so much fun most of the time.

    Good luck finding lots of treasures! Hugs, Dianne

  7. those little alphabet cards are wonderful

  8. Love your finds. You are right church sales are the best. I have never heard of the Probe before. mmm blueberry muffins sounds so good. You know I have never tried it in a loaf pan, what a great idea.
    Hope you are having a great day.

  9. That bread looks DELICIOUS! Could go for a slice this morning with my coffee! Thanks for linking up to TTF @ Melissa's Antiques!

  10. Jill is such a sweetheart! What a fun gift and sweet friend she is to us both! I love your treasures and that amazing dessert, too! Have a fabulous week! Hugs!
