white pumpkins

ahhh, much better! I needed that crow, plus I scared two kids who thought it was real. Just so you are aware, we don't have random crows in our house so I'm not sure what they were thinking...

I painted my twigs black, white pumpkins and a little acorn I found when I was shopping at the antique stores. I am going to replace it when I get a black crow but I had to have it for's the tutorial

It was so easy & i love them...

pear spice cake

I really enjoyed making this cake because I used my gram's mixer & peanut grinder...

I made a couple changes to the recipe. My family is not a fan of walnuts so I used cashews. I only grinded them, I didn't cook them. I only had to use 1 large pear to yield enough cut up pieces. I used an angel food pan because I don't have a bundt pant. I forgot to buy cream to make the frosting so I did a glaze instead...

1 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 T. milk
1/4 t. vanilla
crushed cashews
