When Calls The Heart Party!



Hello Neighbors!

Well, we recently did a When Calls The Heart Party for my older sister Hope.  Remember, I told you I would do a post about the entire party.  So here it is! :D  We held the party out in our Taekwondo studio so we had plenty of room.


We got some ideas from some other peoples #Heartie party's, and then put together our own.   We gathered a bunch of our old teacups and our vintage style lamp and so on! We put pearls and old necklaces all over! Can you tell we like vintage items?  We also did the red heart cutouts, that you know know how to do if you read my last post!


We had a Dry Erase Board on the wall where Modesty wrote out the menu and games!  We also came up with a new version of Mafia, a game we play. :D  For those of you who have never heard of Mafia basically you have a sheriff, a doctor, townspeople, and the mafia, and you try and stop the Mafia from killing the good people! So instead of the sheriff we had Constable Jack Thornton.   We replaced the Doctor with Abigail Stanton, then for the townspeople we actually gave them names like, Elisabeth Thatcher, Cat Montgomery, and so on.  The Mafia became the Tolliver Gang!  Hearties fans will understand all this.



Her gift table was decorated with tea pots, tea cups, vintage necklaces and gloves!

We had a lot of fun playing the new version of Mafia.  It did take a little getting used to, but it was really funny.   For the other games we did Miss Thatcher May I,  Thornton Says, and the Intelligence Test which was Musical Chairs! (you will only understand that if you've watched the series)!    For the cake we made a pound cake that we colored red.  After it was baked we used heart cookie cutters, and cut hearts out of slices of the pound cake.  Then we mixed up a chocolate cake.  We stuck the the hearts in the batter before baking, so there were hearts hidden in the cake that you only saw when it was sliced!!  We had some leftover cake batter, so we made some cupcakes with hearts in them too!

See the heart peeking out!

This is looking down on the cake.  We added some of the heart shapes around it.
My sister was really surprised.  I hope you enjoyed finding out about our #HeartieParty that we did for our sister! See you next Saturday, At The Fence!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.
