CrockPot Pumpkin Spice Latte Recipe
Skip the coffee house today and make pumpkin spice lattes at home. This recipe really does taste like the real thing----even though it doesn't leave a fluorescent orange stain when you dribble it down your sweater.
adapted from Taste of Home's Halloween 2008 edition
--2 cups milk (I used 1%)
--2 T canned pumpkin
--2 T white sugar
--2 T vanilla (not a typo. it asks for tablespoons)
--1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
OR: 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp cloves, 1/8 tsp nutmeg, and a teeny tiny pinch of ground ginger
--1/2 cup brewed espresso or 3/4 cup strong brewed coffee
--garnish with whipped cream (optional)
This will make enough for 2 people to have a big mug with a bit leftover. If you are having friends over, adjust the recipe accordingly. I used a 4-quart crockpot, but as small as a 1.5 quart will work with these amounts.
Add the coffee/espresso and milk to the crockpot. Whisk in the pumpkin, spices, sugar, and vanilla.
Cover and cook on high for 2 hours if everything is cold. Whisk again.
Ladle into mugs, and garnish with whipped cream and additional cinnamon. I added a cinnamon stick to be fancy.

Here is my newest creation that I am listing on ebay today! She has a lot of personality and character! Don't ya think? She can be hung on your porch or she can sit in your favorite chair.
The weather for us here in Texas is changing today and a cold front is moving in. We are suppose to get storms and cold at night and lots of wind. I think I will turn on my Christmas music and get in the mood for the holidays coming. You know for us crafters our holidays have to come so much earlier so our creations can get to you all in time to enjoy them. I am going to try to list several times a week from now through December so keep checking back. Paula will be home November 1st and she will be anxious to start making her awesome Santas again. Hope you all have a great day today! Thank you for visiting us! Tammie

I just finished my new Thanksgiving Harvest listing for Ebay! I might take a couple orders for these if anyone is interested. They were fun to make. These are made from my own pattern.
Paula is gone for a couple weeks. She went to stay with our Mom and help her out. My Mom is 87 years old. I have been talking to them on the phone and they are really enjoying their time together. I wish I could be there too!
Have a great week everyone! Tammie

Paula and I have some new items that will be listed on Ebay Sunday evening. Paula is also almost ready to list more patterns. Be sure to check out her picture trail for a complete list of all her patterns that are new and some favorite sellers in the past! We are excited about the Fall season kicking in! I have been so busy making pumpkins. I think I can make them with my eyes shut now. Sorry about not posting for a while. We will try harder to keep up.
Thanks so much to our dear friend from TDIPT Jan who made our new Halloween Banner. She did an awesome job! She has great templates and banners and what we love too is that she is super fast in getting them back to you when you need one in a hurry. Be sure to check out her site.

Here is a simple snack that reminds me of our Dad who always had a bowl of candy corn and peanuts sitting by his chair in the Fall. The sweet and salty taste is so yummy.
|Halloween Candy Dish|
|Tastes like a PayDay candy bar |
1 jar of dry roasted peanuts
1 bag of plain M&Ms
1 bag of candy corn
Mix together in a clear candy dish and enjoy!

Living in the city in Texas does not help at all. My heart is in the country farm town that I was raised in. In my world, I imagine myself in a Little House on the Prairie world. Let me say that I feel very much like an alien in the middle of this fast paced city life. To me, people here are running so hard and fast that they do not know how to stop and enjoy the very simple things in life that money can't buy.
I encountered "one of those" this week. This lady came over and saw that I was sitting at the table painting and sewing some of my vegetables. I saw the look on her face like she was not impressed at all. She asked, "well what do you do with them"? I tried to explain that if you lived in an old farmhouse they would look so awesome in an old wooden bowl on an old kitchen table. She picked up the piece of corn I was working on and I could tell she just could not picture it in her fancy pants house... It was as if she thought she picked up something that had germs on it. She then felt like she had to let me know that she knew no one who would want anything like this. She told me she could imagine people in the hills of Tennessee maybe wanting them... Hmmmm, was she calling me a hillbilly? I was getting more and more upset in my mind. She then said " People really buy these on eBay?" I tried to explain again. Defending a world that I love. It has happened so many times before. Trying to explain why my dolls eyes look like they do, why I have a pan of grose tea mixture on the stove, why my fingers are brown from tea stains and why all my shirts have paint spots on them...
I give up... I have a choice. I can choose to let her make me feel inferior with her snooty insults or I can choose to realize that I am the rich one. I am the one who is able to take the most simple things in life and turn them into memories that make people stop and smile. I am the rich one for having so many friends who are like me in this world of prim. I am the rich one for I can see the heart that goes into each beautiful creation that my friends come up with. I love being happy for my friends when their dolls get so many bids on eBay. I love how even though many of my friends I have never met, yet I feel so close to and know that they would be there for me when I needed them.
I am the rich one. When my days are over, I think it is awesome that some of the things I have created are out there making people smile and giving people memories, reminding people of the days when simple things were the richest things in life.
I borrowed this picture from another blog. Hope it is okay. It is an example of us. I thought it was cute and it made me smile. Tammie
