HAPPY BIRTHDAY TONY! Sunday evening, Ashley invited us to their home to celebrate birthdays for Dick, Tony and I. Tony loves to play games on his X Box, so what an appropriate cake for Ashley to bake! By the way, Tony is our son-in-law.
Can you see the original on top of the t.v.?
Little Lucy LOVES musical cards. She opens and closes them a million times and has to dance every time.
We have another chilly day in Michigan, but a good one to stay inside and start sewing - again. Time to move on to Christmas items. In less than a month it will be time to redo the shop into a winter wonderland. I will also have a show in November, so... Sew, sew, sew...
So many people loved our soup from Witch's Nite Out that I thought I would share the EASY recipe. It is perfect for you creative gals that want to have some extra time. You just need a crock pot!
Corn Chowder:
1 can corn
1 can creamed corn
1 can evap. milk
Onion, salt, pepper
16 oz. frozen hashbrowns
Smoked sausage (cut into small pieces)
Put everything in the crock pot, turn on low for 8 hours and you will have the most wonderful soup!
Corn Bread:
Melt 1 stick butter in pie plate
Mix 1 egg, 2 cups Bisquick, and 1 SMALL can of creamed corn
Glob over butter (do not mix in)
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.
Talk about a fast and easy meal! It is perfect for this time of year. Hope you enjoy!
Well friends, time to start cutting out snowmen, santas and gingerbread.
Until next time...


  1. What a great cake! Did you mention in there that it was your birthday as well?? I think you did?? If so Happy Belated Birthday!!

    I can't wait to see your store all decorated for Christmas!

  2. The chowder looks yummy, with all this soggy weather we are receiving this would definately be a comfort food... Will have to copy this recipe.

    Found you through Parker Paradise as I was browsing for her recipes.
