Delicious ~ !

Last night Mr. Vintage and I, had Karen and her sweety over for dinner.  Mr. Vintage cooked roast, mashed potatoes, gravy, mushrooms and onions and Karen brought over salad....yummy

Karen brought me a flower ;-)

Mr. Vintage made this for desert~

It was FAB U LOUS ~

Here's how ~ cut pineapple down the middle (including the greens).  Scoop out pineapple, put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in the centre and top with cubed pieces of pineapple.  Then put it in the oven at 400 degrees for two minutes.  The heat brings out the sweetness of the pineapple and the ice cream just melts to the consistency of soft ice cream ~ YUM!

Today because it was snowing AGAIN ~ Mr. Vintage and I went thrifting

A girl can NEVER have enough lace

Wow ~ all this for $4.99

And this sweet little box

So far it has been a wonderful weekend... and Mr. Vintage? I definitely think I will KEEP HIM ;-)

Hope your weekend is as sweet as mine~ xo



  1. Your desert sounds wonderful! Great finds...can't wait for Spring when we can get out and do a bit more "thrifting!"

  2. What a great guy - he's a keeper that's for sure!

    Hope your entire weekend is full of fun and vintage treasures!

  3. I think you should hang on to Mr. Vintage. Where to you go thrifting?

  4. I can't believe you got mr. vintage to go junking with you. that would be like asking my husband to take a walk through hell with me. and that dessert looks wonderful and makes me think of hawaii

  8. Hi Marianne:

    I was so delighted that you found me and enjoyed my site. I have only been blogging since August and I adore it. I can't think of a more wonderful way to meet wonderful people while sitting at my is like being inspired everyday near and far by those we now call friends!
    As for Mr. Vintage......hang on tight, he sounds precious! I will have to try that Pinapple dessert....sounds yummy! Please tell him thank you!

  9. He really does sound like a keeper. Aren't you glad you found him first? :)

    I saw your comment over at Daisy Cottage. I'm looking for a dolls house too. I like two from the Greenleaf company (Beacon Hill Mansion and Garfield) but the import tax to the UK doubles the price. I'm wondering how difficult would it be to build one myself? Arrrrh! :D

  10. Sweet!! Looks and sounds delish, and Mr. Vintage definitely sounds like a keeper. ;) Have a great day my friend!!

  11. You did it again! Great company and great food. My favourite way to spend a Friday evening :-)
    Fun Times - thank you.
