Making, Baking, and Sharing
Welcome to my house. Here are two decorations I made for the front porch.
This is a big floral arrangement I made in a large black plastic cauldron. We have a thing about sunflowers and ravens at our house.
And here is a closer view of the wreath I made for the front door. Come on in and I’ll share Halloween kitchen doings.
I try occasionally to tone down my tacky Halloween tendencies so I cross-stitched a simple pumpkin-theme hand towel. I would share the source but put the magazine with the pattern somewhere but where? Oh dear, I’m getting Junezheimers.
The October 2007 issue of Country Living magazine has the most beautiful cake on its cover that I just had to try. So this past Sunday was baking day at my house. I made the cake which I then gave to my neighbors as lately they’ve had a rough time with an injured child. They insisted we have a piece of the cake, too—oh, it’s so yummy!
That’s a goofy Halloween owl in the background. My husband insisted it had to be in the picture although I just wanted a picture of the cake. Ah well.
