Treasures and Second Time Around Cupcakes

Here is some of my talent for Talented Tuesday.
My first time to join in there.

Here is a close up.
It is 1 Cor. 13 verses on Love,
done up with a vintage music frame, and my little tea bag roses.
(tutorial on it's way.)

and here are some other ideas.

Here is a bit of my husbands talent.

3 or More, second time around cupcakes

This is my sweet fella.

Yesterday for our life Group meeting that night,
he made cupcakes, and even made the frosting and frosted them!
He thought the frosting tasted funny.
I tried a bit off the side of the bowl; tasted fine to me.

We took them to Life Group.

When we got home Scott said he kept having an after taste of the cupcakes.
He thinks maybe the oil he used was rancid.
I only had a half bite of one, so I did not notice it.
Of course all at Life Group said they were good.
(wonder how they felt later?)

When I opened up the fire this morning, I saw this.
I hollered at Scott.
"Hon, Did you throw those cupcakes in the fire???"

YEP! He surely had, and they made great fire starter!!
(it was interesting. They actually burn down to be hard like charcoal)

Can you tell what this is??
(Click to enlarge.)
Yes, it is one of the cupcakes!
That is the cream cheese frosting bubbling and turning brown.

He started to put more in.

I told him,
"Don't waste the frosting!"
so he licked off the frosting....

Then put them in the fire.

The house was toasty warm in no time.

And that is how we live,
waste not, want not. =0)
And don't you just love that my sweet fella would pose for pics,
so I could tell you this funny story?

Thanks for coming by.

Almost forgot,

Here is a little tweet picture Brenda @ Dragonfly Lady

sent me of a Friends Collage she did.

It is a take off of mine that she made for a very special friend.

Love that she added a bird!

How did I not think of that??

Thanks for sharing Brenda.

ClassyChassy said...

That is a funny story! I was wondering why you called them Second Time Around Cupcakes! I guess they were recycled/re-purposed as Fire Starters!!! How great! Your hubby gets ***** 5 stars!*****

Well, darlin', I can see, right off, that YOUR biggest treasure is that hubby of yours. He is precious. :O)
hugs, bj

Maybe you're on to something with those "fire starters" ! Certainly look cuter than those compressed sticks. Sorry, couldn't help myself. Good to hear from you and hope all is going well "down south". Hope to see you soon, M.

How fun! I won't try it at home ;). I have heard of that program you can hook up, but have not tried it. Is the one you are thinking of Sure Cuts? Let me know, I would LOVE that!

I'm very impressed with that hubby of yours! First he makes cupcakes and then he builds a fire with them and lets you show the evidence with him in the photos!

Claudia said...

You are talented, indeed, Barbara Jean! Your husband is adorable - I never thought of starting a fire with cupcakes!


Dragonlady said...

Thank you so much for sharing my shadowbox and thanks for letting me sorta copy yours....I love all of your work!

what a Sweet hubby!

The Rustic Victorian said...

Good Story!!!!Your lucky to have a stove to burn stuff.

Sarah said...

Barbara Jean, what a funny story! Thanks for sharing! It reminds me of when I put a carton of ice cream into the sink before I went to bed. The next morning, it was still there in solid form. Yikes! Makes one wonder what all goes into some of the food we eat. Since then, I only buy Hagen Daz. It has no artificial ingredients. And it is the best! :-)

Cupcakes are a favorite of mine, and your honey made them look even better. Your treasures are really lovely. I think you have alot of fun...Hugs, Mary

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Funny! Thanks for sharing. And I love the framed scripture.

Heather@ said...

I love the picture frame!

Thanks for taking part in Talented Tuesday at My Frugal Family! Don't forget to come back next week!
