Making up for lost time

I hosted Bunco last October and am finally getting to share with you.  I had the most fun decorating and cooking for our monthly get-together.  I made Taco Soup that was topped with delicious goodies that was supplied by my good friend Stacy.

I painted the drawers that I was able to recover from my grandmother's sewing machine cabinet and used them to hold plates, napkins and utensils.
 Galvanized buckets held our Bunco score cards and pencils.  Our talented oldest son designed our score cards from adorable free images I found on the internet.  I also attached these images to the front of another two buckets that held our candy.  Sweet Stacy also supplied this candy for us. 
 I used my old ladder that I found on the side of the road and painted to hold our buckets.  And yes, you did see this same ladder in my previous post.  I used it to hang our Christmas stockings.  It worked out great since we do not have a fireplace and mantel.

 Did you notice these sweet bird on the top of the ladder?  I found him at the local dollar store and made  a little party hat for him out of a book page and glitter.
And since Bunco Girls can never have enough sweets to munch on while rolling the dice, I made this delicious, addicting snack mix.  It is made with popcorn, Reece's Pieces and dry roasted peanuts covered with melted almond bark. 
We have the most fun when we get together for Bunco and I especially enjoyed hosting at my house.  I do hope that I am blessed to be able to do it again soon.

TestoEdge 20 Keep up the good work.Just wish to say this blog is very good. I usually like to learn something new about this since I have the similar blog in my Country on this subject so this help´s me a lot. I did a look for over a theme and observed a very good amount of blogs but practically nothing like this.Thanks for sharing so significantly within your blog.

  7. Thank you so much for this! I have not been this thrilled by a post for a long time! Youve got it, whatever that means in blogging. Anyway, Youre definitely somebody that has something to say that people should hear. Keep up the good work. Keep on inspiring the people! Pure Testo Xplode This is some good stuff. It took me some time to locate this blog but it was worth the time. I noticed this website was buried in google and not the first spot. This internet site has a lot of good stuff and it doesnt deserve to be burried in the searches like that. By the way Im going to save this site to my favorites.

  8. My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. Alpha XTRM But hes tryiong none the less. Ive been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  9. I must say, as considerably as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Intellux Its as if you had a good grasp around the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from much more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so a lot. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
