Pumpkin Pecan Bread

I was flipping through Southern Living Magazine while in line at Harris Teeter today and saw a recipe for pumpkin pecan bread.  I turned the cart around and went to grab all the ingredients to make them!  I decided to make them in my new mini-mini loafs pan (8 in one pan) from Walmart.  I got to try out my new tag punch as well.  I used chalk to write on the black paper and tied them on with raffia.  Oh! They are so very yummy!

Burlap Fall Wreath

I have been waiting for fall to decorate my front stoop and door!  I recently painted my front storm door and side panels a sunflower yellow.  I used left over burlap cut into strips and tied them in knots around a wooded ring.  I picked up the floral picks at Michaels and just stuck them under the knots.

Casting a Spell

This is a new Blackbird Design piece that I picked up at The Stitch and Frame in Rock Hill two weeks ago.  Clara and I are both doing the same piece.  She made us a schedule to follow so that we would get them done in early October. We have three days for each little piece.  I am ahead of schedule!  Which is really good because I know I will get behind at some point! Do you see my mess up?  I didn't really see it until half way finished.  I will have to pull that part out and fix it!!!!!  I always mess up on something.  The box for the project is from Hobby Lobby.  We will paint, distress, and wax the box soon.
