A Hauntingly Witchy Table!!

It is Halloween Eve and time for a new table. I had alot of fun putting this one together. The cauldron is brewing up a delicious potion so let's have a seat!! Ms. Witch seems to have lost her shoes! And they are such pretty shoes too! I started with a black and white checked tablecloth, a white charger, then a stack of black, orange and white dishes.
 2 napkins are gathered together in this fun napkin ring.
 A lacy pumpkin matches the skirt on Ms. witch.
 Black goblets hold your poison:)



 Let's light the candles! Ms. Witch deserves a feather boa, don't you think? It is wound around the table


 A lacy witch"s shoe holds the flatware

 and a bottle brush tree adds some fun to the table.
 Candles stand on a dessert bowl, turned upside down with a black striped pumpkin under it.
 S and P are gathered in a mini wagon.
 The plates here are part of a set with each one picturing something different.

 Mini corn kernals fill the bottom of the hurricane candle holder.
 And Ms. witch presides over all.
 With her bag of goodies!



 This little one is witch in training:)
 
 
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a HAUNTINGLY good Halloween and enjoy some goodies too!!!!

~~Fall Home Tour~~

I have shared alot of Fall with you so thought I would wrap it up into one package:) Here is a tour of my home decorated for Fall! We'll start here at the front door. I made this wreath last year but still like it.
 Next to the door I have an urn filled with caladium, coleus and now a cabbage, gourds and pumpkin.

 The front entrance, mums, pumpkins and lanterns.
 New mailbox swag

Back patio dressed for fall!

 Now we are in the foyer. I always have my blue and white jars on the steps and add seasonal decorations next to them.
 I placed fall candle rings around the candles and added some pumpkins too.

 The living room, I love, love the combo of blue and white with russet.




 This is the breakfast room. Joe made me this hutch many years ago now.


 The dining room

 Fall bedding in the master.

 And fall pillows in the master seating area.

 And finally, my bedside table.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour. I just realized I have never shown you the kitchen!!? I will make that another post. I hope you all had a great weekend.
XO, Pinky

Delicious Egg Casserole and MORE!

The other day I shared with you a breakfast that I had for several friends. I have gotten many e-mails asking me to share the recipes. So, here they are!
Egg Casserole:
Butter 6 pieces of bread and cut into cubes. (I used a multi grain bread as a denser bread seems to work best).
Grease a 9x12 pan and spread bread cubes in the pan.Grate 1/2 lb. of sharp cheddar cheese (or one bag) and cook 1/2 pound of bacon.Spread cheese over bread then crumble bacon over the cheese.Beat 6 eggs in 3 cups milk(I use skim) add S and P to taste. Pour over mixture. Refrigerate overnight. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30-35 mins. ENJOY!!!!


French Toast Casserole:
Ingredients
1 loaf (1 pound) French bread (I used whole wheat) cut into cubes
8 eggs, lightly beaten
3 cups 2%milk
4 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used 2)
3/4 tsp. salt
Topping:
2 Tbls. butter
3 Tbls. sugar
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Maple syrup (optional)...but not to me:)

Place bread cubes in a greased 9x13 in. baking dish. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, sugar,vanilla and salt.Pour over the bread.Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Dot with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle over the top.
Cover and bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 mins. Serve with warm maple syrup. Yield 12 servings.
I always make these for guests and for Christmas and/or Thanksgiving morning.I always serve them with a fruit salad too. Hope you qwill try these and ENJOY!!!!!I am partying here:
