Blogwarming Party - Day 3

Hello and welcome to our Blogwarming Party!

We're having a bloggy open house all week to show off our newly renovated blog.
For more info on everything we're doing this week, check our our party invitation here.

+ + + + +

Today's party food is:
Compound butters Ok, this is not a party food by itself, but can be used in all kinds of party foods to add a little WOW factor. Read Frank's post about compound butters and I'm sure you'll get some great ideas.

Here are two more recipes, one from this blog and the other from Frank's blog:

Grab a plate and come along for the tour of our new place. Don't forget to sign our guestbook!

Today we can't wait to introduce you to Frank:
He has a lot of trouble being serious. (As you can see in the picture in today's badge.)
We don't mind.

Today's party game is The Three Threes meme:

This is simple; just list three things for each category, then tag three people.
For today's game, I'm tagging everyone.

Post your Three Threes to your blog, then add a link to your post in the comments below. Be sure to visit everyone else's links to learn more about them! Here's mine.

(When I asked Frank for his answers he gave me a funny look. What Ever.)


  1. Getting a booth in the local Saturday market for my Pass It On Plates

  2. My next trip to the coast to hang out on the beach

  3. Our first camping trip


  1. Organized the kitchen and washed the floor

  2. Went for a long walk with Rachel and the dog

  3. Installed more hooks to the overhang above the kitchen window and moved a bird feeder into view


  1. Go bike riding (don't currently have a bike and I'm afraid of bicycling in traffic, anyway)

  2. Whistle really loud with my fingers in my mouth

  3. Fly... like a bird, not in an airplane

Today's door prize are two sets of Printed Note Cards from a kids' art camp.
($15 value )

I love going to farm markets with handcrafted items. These note card sets were a project done by a kids' art camp and the proceeds from the sale of the cards help to provide scholarships for kids who wouldn't otherwise be able to attend this camp. These are printed on sturdy card paper and come with matching envelopes. The artist's name and age is printed on the back. I believe the lady at the craft booth said there are 5 cards with the same design in each pack. Today's winner will get both sets.
