I went to Ren Faire with Alicia and Melissa this weekend! It was my second year going and I loved it! But surprisingly I didn't take that many pictures, I must have been too excited! But here are some of the ones I did manage to take.
The dragon puppet store, the imaginarium has so many cool puppets!
Love these candles!
Ye old news paper lining my snack!
I bought this cool necklace there! It comes with a little marble jewel inside!
I also got this soap I'm in love with! It smells so good! It's so hard for me to find honey almond
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?
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! :)
So after my mini trolls arrived I started wondering where all my other trolls got to. I decided to go Treasure Troll digging in my basement and found a few, plus some other little goodies that put a smile on my face!
First of all I have to start off with this duffle bag I found. I long forgot I had this and fell in love all over again!
Stored my bounty in there!
I found tons of things digging through three giant blue plastic barrels but these are the things I will never get rid of!
First of course we have the troll dolls, complete with combs, then a Furby, some funny McDonald toys, and a neat ghost buster figurine. A cool camera, a Beauty and the Beast game and some Polly pockets!
When you squeeze his arm down his head pops up and his mouth drops open! Too funny! :D
I was just so happy I found these combs to go along with my trolls!
I used to love playing this game and I remember I also had a Little Mermaid one as well, but didn't find it. Man!
I've been crafting! Lol! I knit a blue scarf and I crocheted a pink cape with a star button so far, and thinking about other pieces to do. Any ideas?... And suddenly I am feeling like creepy troll lady. Hmm, awkward... :P
Anyway! I had a blast going through all my old stuff! Anybody else have any old treasures you're hanging on to? Or any awesome finds?

On a side note, I am still blogging from my phone so the pics were taken with my phone and I apologize for the not so great quality.
