As promised some photos from Costa Rica.
Once and awhile we need to take a break from cake...
and see a volcano.
Be in awe of nature's waterfalls.
Swim with them.
Watch a sunset.
Eat some fresh fruit.
And photograph some cows.
Hi! I'm off on a vacation next week and therefore I am also taking a blog break. Hopefully you'll come back, I will share my photos from Costa Rica! See you soon.
I work for a large publishing company with many magazines under their belt. Some that have been around for ages. You wouldn't believe some of the stuff in our photo archives. I have sketches from illustrators when computers were not around, and recently came across these photos of old candy shops I thought were interesting enough to share with you:
39 cents a pound for these swiss chocolates...
Check out Neilson's rosebuds! Are those still around?...
Home made butter squares sound delicious...
LOVE this packaging for Kleenex. They should bring them back. The design would still be relevant. They look art deco...
And old packaging of candy bars they should bring back too...
Proof that bags of candies WERE only 10 cents...
It's halloween prep time this weekend and many of you will be busy carving your pumpkins, maybe baking some treats, figuring out a cleaver costume or hiding in the corner stuffing chocolates in your mouth while tossing the wrappers in a trash can and hiding the evidence with tissue paper.If you are the person who is baking, here are some great ideas...Caramel Apples via save the date for cupcakes
If you are trying to think of a clever costume to wear, here is inspiration from a pinata with a black eye:

And some clever wish-I-thought-of-that treat bags
for your candy also from Martha:
Whatever your up to, enjoy yourself, be safe, and remember to eat your candy when no one's looking.
This week flew by, and I am so excited for this weekend. I am off to the Bahamas!
