Caramel Apples--Tea Party under the Halloween Moon

I love coffee-mate creamers--lots of different flavors  but I think my favorite seasonal flavor is caramel apple now to share what I have been using it for

Caramel Apple Frappe

1/2 cup of dark roast coffee
2 cups crushed ice
3 tablespoons caramel apple creamer
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup whole or other milk
mix together in a blender and enjoy!!!!
(I got a Mr. Coffee Cafe Frappe several months ago so I make mine in that)
I love Caramel apples and s'mores so my tea party will consist of those two food groups--well three if you add my other favorite --coffee

Check out my necklace below---I love Halloween

Halloween Blog Party Repurposed Halloween Necklace



Glam Skeleton

A Fanciful twist Blog party

My party has no fortune teller
much to my dread
'Cause this witch has already had her fortune read.

A new baby pom will come into your house
She'll bring in beetles, and snails and even a mouse.

You witch, you even bribed her with treats
So you could take pictures of her in the seats.

First a glam skeleton
And then like you a witch,
Or maybe the princess is really your nitch.

Your fortune it read Trixie Flo
The new chocolate pom that makes this witch glow
It may not seem like magic to you----
But in this family --we sure do!!!
