Another Mary Monday! Mary Engelbreit That Is

Filed under: Holiday,Thrifty Finds — Laura R @ 8:18 PM

How well do you know me?


(yes, click to look closer)

A show of hands, who thinks I paid sticker price?

Anyone?   Oh I knew I could not fool you.

Well, I did pay “sticker” price, but not the original store sticker.

I know, I probably should have taken my time and removed it more gently.

Isn’t she adorable?

To enjoy some truly wonderful posts of Mary Engelbreit creativity, visit the Cherry Chick on Mondays.


I have a collection of these cookie molds, and use them only for display.

I wanted to share a recipe with you but instead will share a link for a pdf from
  Brown Bag Cookie Designs.

I promise I will make some cookies myself, so feel ok linking this to Made It Monday
and if you can bake some right now you can link up too!

I can not link to Make It 4 Monday because her rules state no recipes (and besides I am not showing you the step by step here, still you all trust me that I am doing it, right?) but I have an excuse why I don’t have things ready for her party. I have been intrigued by each of her posts this month showing off great decorations and old photos of Christmases from my era.

(Maybe I am fudging by a few years.)  

That Mustang pedal car is to die for. 

We all love Thrift Share Monday at ATG.  Please play along.
  Notice I did not admit to how cheap I was.
But cheap enough to qualify for the Pennyworthy Project!

Its Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. Join me at Coastal Charm


How was your weekend?

point and shoot from my front window

If my computer continues to run this slow I may not get back to you for a few days,  but I promise I will come visit.


  1. Oh wow! I use to be a sales rep for Brown Bag Cookie Art but I never knew that they had licensed Mary’s design??? Major cookie mold envy down here! I probably have a couple dozen of the different molds but none are ME. I like to use them to mold chocolate for Valentine’s Day and Easter. The cookies are really a pain to get out of the molds.
    That’s some photograph from your front porch, too. I can’t even imagine. I guess I won’t whine about FL weather then.
    Thanks so much for joining us for ME Monday. Love your ME cookie mold.

  4. Cute find! I wish we at least got some snow to go with the random cold we get her in North Florida. It was in the 40s this morning and last night: DO NOT WANT.
