It's A Slumber Party!

Phyllis from For The Love of Vintage is celebrating her birthday with a slumber party.  I LOVED slumber parties as a child!  Our group of girlies would each take a turn to have us all over.  We giggled, ate, told ghost stories, ate, talked about boys, ate, played games, ate...you get the picture.  I have such fond memories of each of these sweet childhood friends, their homes, and families!

That is why I was so tickled when Phyllis invited us to her slumber party.  She asked to see all of our vintage sleepwear, quilts, vintage linens, and such.  So here we go...

Here are some of my quilts in my antique pie safe.  I just love quilts, and admire the work, love, and time that goes into each one.  Not to mention how comfy cozy they are on a cold night, or when you're feeling under the weather!

Here is a quilt with my sweet dolly, Dottie.  She isn't vintage, but vintage-inspired instead.  None-the-less, she is a sweet lil friend!

These are my favorite vintage pillowcases.  You know how I love birds, so when I saw these, I squealed and snatched them right up.  I feel a pillow fight coming on!!

These are baby blankets that belonged to my hubby and our babies.  I hope to have grandbabies some day that will get to use them as well.  

At bedtime, we all need something to cuddle, boys and girls alike.  This is one of my childhood babydolls.  She is wearing my hubby's baby bonnet and outfit, and my baby shoes.  I was a good mommy to this little one. 

This is my dolly again with my baby rattle and bunny.  Yep, I loved bunnies back then too!  :)

The puppy on the left belongs to my hubby.  The one on the right is our oldest son's "BarkBark".  

This is the original Barney from "Barney and The Backyard Gang" videos, which starred Sandy Duncan.  This Barney belongs to our youngest son from back in the 80's.  We took Barney to bed each night, and everywhere else!

You gotta have some games at a slumber party.  We always loved to play Charades, Twister, and Truth-or-Dare.  This vintage game belonged to my hubby's parents.  It is the original Password.  

Hey, have a seat on the bed.  Let me style your hair with my pink sponge rollers!

You have to have some goodies at the party.  Popcorn is a must but you need something sweet too.  This is potato candy.  Yes, it is made from potato!  Trust me, it is gooooood!!  And easy.  

*Choose a very small potato and bake.

*Peel and smash in a bowl.

*Start adding powdered sugar, and knead.  It will be reaaallllyyy juicy at first!!

*Keep adding powered sugar and kneading until you have a soft dough.

*Place on powdered sugar dusted wax paper.  Roll out with rolling pin until about 1/8" inch thick (I'm guessing here).  

*Spread peanut butter over the dough until covered.  

*Begin to roll in a jellyroll fashion.  

*I usually trim the ends off as they are ugly (lol)  Then cut in  1/2" slices.

*Serve and Enjoy!!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my goodies that I had to share for the Slumber Party.

Happy Birthday Phyllis!  I hope you enjoyed the Slumber Party.  I know I sure did!!

Be sure to stop by Phyllis' blog and check out everyone else that came to the Slumber Party!

Helloooo!!! I'm having trouble viewing some of the pics for some reason...:(
I see your doll though and wonder ...does it say "Horseman" on the back of the head under the hair? I see Bark Bark and the other doggie and your bluebird pillowcases SOOO nice!
Thank you for joining in! I told a couple of other people...my mother used to roll my hair on socks!

Wow, Potato Candy . .. I have never heard of that! I will have to try it. Maybe we can stay up late tonight and make another batch. I'm game!

Love the pink rollers too. Much better than those 80s perms!

Thanks for joining the fun, Karen

Oh No Phyllis! I wonder what's going on with my pics!! I use a Mac, and cropped some of them in a program just for Macs. I came into hubby's office to check on his PC and I can see them fine from here. I wonder what's happening!! Anyone else have any problems viewing them??

I'll have to check on the "Horeseman" Phyllis. The hair is just molded so no real hair there. I check though!!

Thanks everyone!

My Nana makes potato candy, but she never gave out the recipe. Thank you for sharing!

Those pink rollers ... how I remember them. They were torture to sleep on. But ... I was willing to suffer for beauty.

But hey, enough about beauty, I'm here for the pillow fight. I've got a great big fluffy pillow, filled with feathers. Watch out!!!

My Shabby Roses said...

Ok, I'm here! I'm ready to get some curls in my hair! I brought the nail polish!

I love all your sweet vintage heirlooms. What fun items to have.

Barney was a big thing at my house too! My son would die if he knew I said something. oh well!

Deanna said...
