A Sweet Trip Down Memory Lane

Happy Friday my friends! The kids and I went to an olde time candy shoppe today! SO fun! All the old candies and drinks I remember from my past.The music was even from "back in the day"! Maybe you will see some of your favorites!

Enjoy these sugar-filled photos!

This is my ALL TIME favorite candy. I call it "swimming pool taffy". Whenever we would go to the pool when I was a kid they would blow the break whistle and that meant "everybody out of the pool". The whistle also meant… everybody head to the snack shack! This is what I would buy every time!


Another photo of my favorite taffy!


This was just one small section of a HUGE wall of salt water taffy!


Remember these little wax juice filled bottles?...Exactly what was that juice in there anyway!? Oh well, it was yummy and I always drank it and then chewed on the wax!


I have always had a love-hate relationship with Sweet tart and yet so sweet at the same time! Haha!

Sweet Tarts

Just a "little" bit of sugar in those Sugar Babies! *wink*


Who doesn’t remember Bazooka!?


Have a Coke and a Smile! :)

Coca Cola

Root Beer! Yum-O!

Just a sampling of a big wall of soda!


The atmosphere took me right back in time! Sammy Davis Jr. was singing “Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with chocolate and a miracle or two
The Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good”! You gotta love it!

Whenever you get a chance, take your kids back in time with you. The look on their faces is priceless!  I even got myself something! Cinnamon Freshen Up Gum! Do you remember it? “The gum that goes squirt”!

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!!

Until next time, take care.

Wildflower Photos and Salt Dough Flowers

Hello everyone! Long time no see! I hope you are all doing well. Summer is a busy one with baseball games and other activities. Trying to stay cool during those baseball games is quite the challenge. It has been SO hot here lately.

At one of our son’s baseball games there is a wildflower preserve right next to the fields. So I grabbed my camera and started snapping away. I couldn’t believe the colors! All of the flowers were drifting in the breeze.







Here is a picture I took on the 4th of July of the flag that proudly hangs on our front porch.


And here are the rest of our salt dough creations. My daughter and I were busy! We kind of went a little crazy on the salt dough flowers! I just love them too much! What am I going to do with ALL of these you ask….I have NO idea! But they are so much fun to make!





Did I mention that I LOVE the flowers!? Haha!



My daughter and I just sorted through our Fall and Halloween cookie cutters! Yep, you guess it…that is our next project! It’s going to be Fall-tastic! So stay tuned!

Well, this post was rather random wasn’t it? Filled with some fun photos I have taken recently. I hope you enjoyed a little of this and a little of that!

Until next time, take care.
