Butterflies and Cheesecake

I love vintage jewelry. I love going to garage sales and finding cute jewelry. It's winter, though, so I visit our consignment stores for my fill of gently used goods. Last time I went to one of my frequent stops, I looked at their jewelry case, bad idea, now I check it out every time I go in.
Yesterday, I felt I should visit a few places downtown, I didn't plan to spend money, but I did find a few pieces to take home with me.
 A cute basket of flowers, a ring of flowers, 3 butterflies, a caterpillar and a cute pair of earrings.
 I also found that really cute square piece.
If you haven't noticed, I really like butterflies. I don't really know exactly why, but I try to pick them up if I see them.

Tonight, I have a trivia event I go to with my family every month. My job is to bring dessert. This month, I decided to try making cheesecake. I've never made it before, mostly because I think it's above my skill level, and I don't have a spring form pan. My co-worker, who makes cheesecake a lot, told me I didn't need one and that I should really try it.
I bought a Taste of Home Grand Prize Winners magazine at the grocery store the other day, and they had a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake. It looked sooo good, so I decided to try making it.
I messed up a couple things, but it tastes delicious to me. Hopefully, everyone else agrees.
