3. Do you know what day it is? Just to show you how versatile the inventory presented by our hundreds of sellers can be, we've been researching little-known national and world-wide "holidays" that most people aren't familiar with, and matching them up with items for sale on TIAS.com.

Yesterday was International Bagpipe Day. There are only a few bagpipe related items listed at TIAS.com, but those we found were really interesting! See our post here:
https://www.facebook.com/TIASAntiques/posts/10154006665393656

Visit us on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TIASAntiques to read about some of the interesting and sometimes amusing "holidays"! You don't need to have a Facebook account to view that page!

4. Be sure to visit our boards on Pinterest! https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/

Visit the page for the March Birthstone-Aquamarine or Bloodstone
https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/march-birthstone-aquamarine-or-bloodstone/

Aquamarine is derived from Latin word aqua, meaning water, and marina, meaning the sea. Was believed to protect sailors, as well as to guarantee a safe voyage. The serene color of aquamarine is said to cool the temper, allowing the wearer to remain calm and levelheaded. The 2nd birthstone for March is bloodstone, dark-green jasper flecked with vivid red spots of iron oxide. This ancient stone was used by Babylonians to make seals and amulets.

We also have a fun board for St Patrick's Day here:
https://www.pinterest.com/TIASAntiques/st-patrick-s-day/

Linda F sent in some comments she wanted to share about her collection:

When my gram passed away a few years ago, I was thrilled to be given a few pieces of her Iris & Herringbone glass. I've managed to pick up a few more pieces, and it's been fun shopping online to add to my gram's collection.

Carol T sent in this recipe - thank you Carol!
S’mores Pinwheels

10 oz miniature marshmallows
¼ cup salted butter
5 cups Rice Krispies cereal
¾ cup graham cracker crumbs
7 oz jar marshmallow creme
1 1/2 cups miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Melt the marshmallows and butter in the microwave in a medium bowl for 1½ minutes or until completely melted, stirring halfway through.
2. While the marshmallows are melting, mix the Rice Krispies and the graham cracker crumbs together in a large bowl.
3. Stir the melted marshmallow mixture into the Rice Krispies.
4. Line a 10×15 jelly roll pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray.
5. Press the Rice Krispies in an even layer to fill the jelly roll pan (or as I did, a 13 x18 half-sheet pan that I filled ¾ full),
6. Spread the marshmallow creme evenly over the cereal layer and top with the mini chocolate chips chips.
7. Place the pan in a 200F oven for 2 minutes, just long enough to start melting the chocolate chips. Remove from the oven and spread the chocolate out in an even layer over the marshmallow creme.
8. Using the parchment paper, carefully roll the Rice Krispies treat into a tight log.
9. Refrigerate for one hour and slice into pinwheels once the chocolate and marshmallow are set.
Tip: Spray your offset spatula with non-stick spray before pressing the Rice Krispies onto the parchment and again when you spread the marshmallow creme on top of the Rice Krispies. This will make it easier to spread the Rice Krispies without becoming a sticky mess.

Cathy P sent in this note and a recipe (of sorts):
"My Dad served in WW II and he loved what he called SOS (**** on a shingle lol). He says he ate it a lot in the Army. He sometimes made it with these super salty (as I remember it), paper thin "chipped beef" slices that came in a little glass jar, but mostly he made it with hamburger. He never wrote down a recipe, but told me "Just brown up a pound of hamburger, then drain off almost all the grease, leaving some in with the meat. Sprinkle in a couple of tablespoons of flour while it's on the heat, and stir it really good, then slowly add milk while you keep stirring until it's thickened. Add some salt and pepper." No quantities except "about a pound of hamburger".
