Vintage Jewelry Trunk Show
Saturday, February 6th
10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

These are a few of our favorite things...

So it may not be quite spring and who knows what the groundhog is going to enlighten us with tomorrow, but at All Tucked In, spring is in full swing.  Just by stopping in the store, you will feel the hope that spring is around the corner and the gray winter days will soon be a thing of the past.  We are getting new things in every day and it's so hard to narrow down the items to spotlight on the blog.  Just take our word for it, you need to come in so you can check out each detail in the store for yourself!

We love, love this jacket!  The details of the buttons are white and black polk-a-dot ribbons and the crochet is amazing quality.  Just picture this with a great skirt, your favorite jeans or long shorts when the weather is bearable!

Maybe the birds aren't out yet, but these pretty things are sure to bring spring into your home.  Hang them from a chandelier or something wonderful. (Less than $10!)

You have to see these handmade boiled wool hearts!  They are beautiful.  We love the detailing of the beeds and simple colors of the wool.

This blue skirt is a killer and the belt at the waist is very flattering.  Your sig other will want to take you to dinner and somewhere wonderful when you wear it.

My favorite bag for spring.

This is a wonderful book for any mother - young or old.  It's sweet and endearing.

  Don't be scared to wear yellow because this is dynamite on!  The cinch at the waist is pretty and we love the detailing of the ruffles.

Can't you picture these crocheted barrettes in your favorite girl's hair?  (Under $6!)

Killer crochet skirt!  Now we just need sandals...

We have wonderful vintage teddy bears with boiled wool flowers and shoes.  Plus, the Sugar Cookies book is a favorite!

Coming on Friday...

Oh, we are so excited about one of our new jewelry vendors!  You are going to love these handmade, retro button delights!  These unique fabric buttons come in hair clips, bracelets, necklaces and earrings!  The prices are even better with the earrings starting at only $11.  Come see these vintage gems before they fly out of the store!

Are you craving chocolate?

We love a great bundt cake and feel morally obligated to share this easy, no-fail recipe with you!

Benny's Bundt Cake

1 Devil's Food cake mix
1 small chocolate instant pudding
3/4 c. oil
3/4 c. water
4 eggs
1 c. sour cream
1 c. (1/2 bag) guittard chips

Mix ingredients together and bake at 350 for 50 minutes in a bundt pan.  Let cake cool.

1 c. granulated sugar
5 T. butter
1/2 c. evaporated milk
1/2 pkg. guittard chocolate chips

Bring all ingredients except chips to a boil for one minute.  Remove from heat and add chips.  Stir until smooth.  Spread over cooled cake.

Book Rec for the Month

This time of year aren't we all looking for something bright and cheerful to take in?  We love Kevin Henkes' book, Birds.  The illustrations by Laura Dronzek are interesting and beautiful and Henkes' writing is always a joy to read.  This is one of those children's books that is loved by the parent and child alike.  We suggest this book as a great night time read or something to spark an activity with a child.  After reading Birds, make a pine cone bird feeder to put in a tree.  (Spread peanut butter around a pine cone, dip the pine cone in bird seed and hang with a wire in a tree near a house window.  Then enjoy seeing the winter birds come for a treat in your yard!)
