A Day at Brickhouse Crafts

Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day with some good friends!!! Michele BriarPatchPrimitives arrived at my house around 8:30am and we headed up to Patti's Brickhouse Crafts for a craft day and drop off some new things for her shop! What a perfect day to spend with friends! Nice humid free day and a beautiful breeze! Just look at Patti's flowers and her shop porch! So relaxing and inviting!
Also to arrive was Tarrah from The Pottery Shed! I don't know how I did it but I failed to take a picture of Tarrah stirring her sugar cakes............which was a hard job for her because she was suffering with a stiff neck! Hope you are feeling better today Tarrah!!! Not sure what Patti thought of us dropping by to mess up her kitchen! Yikes! After making 2 batches of Sugar Cakes we took a break for lunch! Patti prepared the most beautiful salad........I forget what she called it because when I found out it was TUNA I was freaking out in my mind! You see.... I really don't care for tuna so I was trying to figure out how I was going to eat it! Not only that..... when I looked at her homemade dressing it had some lumps in it and I was so afraid it may be bleu cheese and I can't eat that at all! I prayed real hard as I took my first bite that I would like it!!! Guess what?!?!? It was rather tasty!!! I did not confess until we were half way through our meal that I was a little frightened when I found out it was TUNA! Thank goodness the dressing was not bleu cheese and it was delicious!!! I'm happy to say I cleaned my plate! Thank you so much Patti for the lovely lunch!
After lunch we whipped up two more batches of Sugar Cakes! It's funny how all 4 batches turned out a little bit different in texture! Here is Michele stirring her pot!
After lots of good laughs and chatting we each went home with some new Sugar Cakes and left Patti's house smelling like brown sugar and cinnamon!


  1. Those sugar cakes look AMAZING!! Can you tell me where I could get a recipe for making those? Love all of your things!!

  2. Seems you had a wonderful day with friends and crafts!

  3. You can find the recipe here on this blog Laura... it is close to the bottom. They are very easy!

  4. The sugar cakes are awesome Teresa! Sounded AND looked like a wonderful day with friends. Glad the lunch was delicious :)
    I'm a very picky eater, so I can relate.

  5. Hi fun was that!
    I just read Tarrahs post about it and it looked like you all had such a great time.
    The Sugar Cakes look awesome!

    Too funny about the lunch...if there was any kind of SEAFOOD (although I like Tuna and don't consider it a Seafood) in the lunch I would not have been able to even get it to my mouth...let alone blue


  6. Tuna Lover Teresa!!!! You are too funny! I still laugh when you told me that you don't like tuna and you thought my "lumpy" salad dressing was blue cheese...oh my that was funny! It was so much fun..but I need to set some ground rules..No pictures of ME!! I need to have a talk with Tarrah about this, too..! I STILL have to do my blog post about our craft be prepared!

  7. yum would have loved the smells in the kitchen..:)

  8. Sounds like it was a fun day. Crafting with girlfriends and lunch too! Pure heaven.....even if it was tuna! LOL!
