Bubble, Bubble, Toil & Trouble

I am excited to have ladies to visit teach again and to have ladies to visit me! I'm starting to get my land legs here in Washington and have met some really great, kind and talented ladies.

Last year after fruitlessly searching for weeks, I happened upon a set of the Martha Stewart plastic test tubes at Mangelsens and couldn't snap them up fast enough, knowing I would pack them away and use them this year. They are tricky to find, but I have heard that Target is carrying them this year and Ellen Hutson has them available online here. I filled mine with sour apple Jelly Bellys, corked them, and added a "Beware of Contents" tag with ribbon.

Happy Haunting!!
