12 Days After Christmas

Because of some computer fits we weren't able to get our usual vintage Christmas cards project together this year. On Christmas day we were inspired to do something fun and different.

We're sharing cards we just got this year!

So please enjoy these "Early" vintage cards.

Nora playing with her marbles.

When its your birthday and you want something fun.

Try playing with your marbles.

Its a fun treat.

And apparently a lost skill.
When I went to look for a marble cake mix, only one brand had one. And it didn't have really good instructions on how to do it.
Have fun, and Happy Birthday Nora

In our Yard.

So Tom is outside puttering around in the garden and he comes upon this.

That appears to be one BIG Iguana!

After all the excitement of wondering how he got here etc. We discovered he belongs to our next door neighbor. His son is carrying the iguana home. The iguana is 12 years old. What a fun day out in the yard.

Soda Twelve!

So what happened with the soda project you as?

Simple. I forgot about it. hahah

Then on Mother’s Day I ran into an old friend who brought up the orange soda project and then it all came back to me that I still had one more post to do!!


So here comes the last orange soda.


Sioux City Orange Cream


DSC02917 Sioux City soda comes from the White Rock beverage company which was founded in 1871.

But they didn’t started making their Sioux City brand until 1987.

Their first flavor was  sasparilla and they say that they were the first to create an old western themed soft drink brand.

Some of their other flavors include, Cream Soda, Cherrys’n’mint, Berry Berry, and Birch Beer.



If you’d like to know more, check out their website. :)

DSC09853 This art on the front makes you feel like your drinking Davy Crockets soda of choice. haha


Yummy yummy!  I really like the smoothness of orange creams sodas and this one didn’t disappoint.


The End!


I can’t believe its actually over yet I also can’t believe it took me so long to blog about 12 sodas. haha



Its been a fun project and I hope to find something again soon to blog about on a regular basis.

Until then I hope you’re enjoying my creek walks. ^^


Have a great day!
