Party in Your PJs #63

Did everyone have a safe and happy 4th of July?  We kept it pretty simple...well actually, we went to watch fireworks in the local down and ate at Pizza Hut...pretty boring...but relaxing at the same time.  I guess now that July 4th is over, it is time to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas, right?  Isn't that how it works in blog land?  Always 5-6 months ahead of the holiday?  Me, I am not that organized!

Medical School Cookies

A loyal customer of mine sent me a request for cookies to celebrate a friend getting into medical school.

Medical School just blows my mind! To have the dedication to go to school for almost 10 years to learn your profession is something to be proud of, and to be celebrated.

The customer sent me a picture of cookies that she wanted, this happens a lot.  With the internet, customer often search for cookies and send me pictures of their requests. Sometimes we work together to modify the cookies to match their personal taste and often I modify them to meet my skill level.  This time...I did not try to re-invent the cookies...I pretty much just made them as pictured.  A huge thank you to Janis Bakes for these simple yet cute cookies..you truly inspired me!

Simple hearts with EKG lines (?) on them!

Medical School Cookies

Red heats with white lines and white heart with red lines.

Stuff He Brought Home Vol.3

Happy Friday!

Welcome to Vol.3 of Stuff He Brought Home!

This is a series I do each week here on the blog, showing you, well, STUFF HE BROUGHT HOME!
He, is Mr. Cookie Puzzle...and he brings home A LOT of stuff...some wicked cool...some odd...some totally unique. 









This week...another item that I actually like!  Maybe next week I will share one of the "What is that? and WHY did you bring it home!" things he brought home!

But for today...we have a beautiful old Mrs. Butter-Worth Syrup Bottle.



I have no idea how old t is, as I can find no date or markings on it.


The label does have some damage...but mostly intact.  Look...5 cents off the regular price of this bottle!  What is the price?  Well...on the lid it is marked $.64!  That is right...$.64 for a bottle of syrup!  Heck syrup is way more then that, even at The Dollar Tree!



Hello Mrs. Butter-Worth...so happy to have you in the house and smiling at me each morning!


So...that is that...What He Brought Home....A Vintage Mrs. Butter-Worth Bottle!

If you have any information about this piece and want to share, I would love to hear from you.

Until next time....

Party in Your PJs #62

Welcome to Party in Your PJs!



Can you believe that tomorrow is July? What happened to this year?  Soon it will be Halloween, then Thanksgiving, and Christmas is right around the corner!   I feel like a failure in that I did not get anything done blogwise for the 4th of July, but hey...nothing I can do about it now, right?
Maybe I should start working on Christmas cookies and Thanksgiving tablescapes tomorrow?   It seems like all the holidays sneak up on me then I am scrambling to get my act together.

What about you...do you have big plans for the 4th?  We don't have anything planned at all, I am sure we will go somewhere and see fireworks...or not...whatever.


Ok......LET'S PARTY!

Elephant Cookies

I had a request for elephant cookies for a baby shower...so...I made elephant cookies.

The customer wanted grey elephants with a pink heart above the trunk.  After talking a bit, we decided to go with a round cookies and the elephant on that.

Loving how they turned out!


Elephant Cookies

Confession time...I have never made elephant cookies before!  More confession time...I have four elephant cookie cutters!  I made elephant cookies and did not use any of those four cutters!  

Elephant Cookies

I was able to mimic the elephant shape from the shower invitations, and free-handed the heart.  So simple, yet so cute!

Elephant Cookies

It has been so long since I had a baby, or went to a baby shower, purchased anything for a baby, that I had no idea that elephants were a "thing" and so popular...I guess I should get out more, huh?

Any way....I was happy with them...and the customer was happy with them...so it was a happy day!
