Brave Girls...have you heard of it?

I was reading through my emails this morning and I got to my Brave Girls Daily Truth email and thought I would share. It is an email sent most weekdays and it is very encouraging and uplifting.  They also have online classes you can sign up for but right now I just enjoy getting the daily truths..

Fall in a Bucket..

Hi Prim friends~
I took a few more shots of some Fall decor ( someone out there twisted my arm LOL, I'm not naming names but her initials are CC hehe)
Here is a bucket I painted with a friend a few years ago and we added the floral stems, it was such a fun crafting day.  When Halloween is over I simply turn the bucket around and leave it out through Thanksgiving.

Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate each of you :)

Blessings~Stacy Kay

Yummy Banana Bread!

Happy Monday~
First of all thank you so much for the wonderful comments on my giveaway!! You guys are the best.  I am so excited to get to know all my new followers. I enjoyed reading and responding to each just warms my heart that you all are interested my little handmades :)  I will draw a winner on Saturday.

I have a yummy recipe to share today...I swear my kids don't eat the bananas I buy so they will go bad and they can tell me.."hey mom, time for banana bread, the bananas are brown".  LOL
I had enough bananas last week to make two loaves, and they looked and smelled sooo yummy!  I thought of all my wonderful blog friends, and since I didn't have enough to send you all your very own loaf, I will share the recipe for now. :)

1 cup of sugar
1 stick unsalted butter~softened
1 cup (2 medium) bananas
2 eggs

1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

In large bowl mix sugar, bananas, butter and eggs.  Add dry ingredients, blend until moistened. Stir in nuts.
Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes...Enjoy!
You can substitute apples for bananas, just add some cinnamon with the apples...yummm

More Fall Decor..this time the Living room

I hope you are enjoying my Fall open house hehe.  Today I have the living room to share with you.  As you can tell I love decorating trees for the holidays.  People actually count them when they come over lol
Here is my little black tree with some handmade ornaments I created last year.

I printed out the vintage postcard and put it in a black frame, I just love how it turned out and it only cost me a dollar for the frame :)

Yes..another tree :) 
Have a great day~Stacy

Is it Fall yet??

Hi there~
Well I know some of you lucky ones are starting to feel the cooler crisp mornings that lead way that Fall is breaking through..ahh I wish :)  But the good news is the weatherman said this morning it will cool down next week to in the desert that is our cool down haha! I think I need to arrange a different kind of swap, one where I get to come stay with you lucky ones until it cools down here LOL 
Well,  I am still in the wanting to get my fall decor out but haven't done anything about it hehe.  I just need to go get the totes and get started I know! I love it so much and it seems to slip by so fast so I like to get it out early so I can enjoy it longer. How about you, anyone out there have their stuff up yet? I have seen a few and you inspire me to get moving...

Have a great Thursday!!

**Be A Witch Pillow Tuck**

Hi there~thought I would share a pillow tuck I just finished and listed in the Esty shop.  I am going back to my crafting roots here with some cross stitch. :)  I used to cross stitch all the time and when I recently came across this pattern I knew I wanted to make it.  I added a few mini buttons like a bat, ghost and yellow star.

Thank for stopping by!

Goodies from Lil Raggedy Angie

Happy Thursday everyone :)
I'm back with pictures of all the goodies Angie sent with my order of the candy corn...when the box came I couldn't believe how big it was and then I tore into it like Christmas morning LOL

Just check out all the treasures she included!!**Happy dance, happy dance**

The witches boot, and bat have hangers so I will be using them on my seasonal tree as ornaments. In the bag is some puka pods that smell yummy. I am ready to pull out my fall decor, it is hard to get in the mood with our heat advisory now extended through Friday...maybe I'll crank down the air conditioning and put on a sweater hehe 

Thanks again Angie..your the best!!
