Pumpkin Bread...

I have to share this recipe! I am a sucker for pumpkin!! I found this in a cooking magazine, and I am in love with it. It has the best flavor, and is so moist and yummy. And it's also one of my husband favorites. Both loaves are usually gone within 2 days. But you can also double it, and freeze them, and they are still just as delicious! Here's the recipe:

1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin puree

4 eggs

1 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup water

3 cups white sugar

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground cloves

1/4 tsp ground ginger

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 7x3 inch loaf pans.

In a large bowl, or kitchen aid, mix together pumpkin puree, eggs, oil, water, and sugar until well blended.

In a seperate bowl, wisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture until just blended. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake for about 50 minutes in the preheated oven. Loaves are done when toothpicks inserted into the center come out clean.

Birthday party ideas...

My baby girl is turning 3 in August. I like to be prepared, so I'm trying to decide what theme to do so I can get started making everything for it (invitations, decorations, etc.) Last year I did a ladybug theme:

This cake took forever to make!! My sweet sister helped me get everything ready, and was real patient with me when the stress started breaking through. I was so worried I wouldn't get the cake ready in time, but lucky, it was finished with a little time to spare. Yeah, I made all of the petals, and ladybugs. Time consuming, but the end result is so worth it!I loved how it turned out! I love doing birthday parties for the kids, and always try to make a big deal about it. So I'm going to be posting my birthday party ideas on here, let me know which one you guys think I should do!!

This is the Bohemian Messenger. I LOVE this bag, if it doesn't sell, I'll gladly keep it for myself (although I would love for it to sell!) :) I'll probably put it on my shop tomorrow, after I can get some better pictures when it's not raining.
Vintage button...Love them!!!

This is the bag to come. It's a clutch. This is just a peek. It's still got a little work left. I also have a hobo bag I'm doing that I am very excited about!! I'll give a sneak peek of that another day! Have a good day!!
