Banana Oatmeal Muffins

These muffins are easy, delicious, and so moist. If you love bananas, and oatmeal
you will really love these. I love a cup of good coffee, and a delicious muffin for
breakfast. I only treat myself to muffins once in awhile, but when i do these are
the muffins that i make. 

 They are so good!!

 I just mix everything together in one bowl. I mash the bananas separately, and add them in.

I make 6 large muffins. You could make 12 small muffins.

Let them cool. (If you could wait that long)

Place them on a pretty platter and enjoy!!!



  1. Combine flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg lightly. Stir in the milk, oil, and vanilla. Add the mashed banana, and combine thoroughly. Stir the flour mixture into the banana mixture until just combined. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper bake cups, and divide the batter among them.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 18 to 20 minutes.

                                                       Have a great day!!

Diy Holiday Table Runner...Tutorial

This is a fun, and easy to make table runner. It's inexpensive, and you don't have to know
how to sew to make this. You can use fabric glue. I bought all my supplies at Joanns.
They always have great sales, and i always have my coupons right on my phone. I think
this would look so cute on your table for the upcoming holidays!! I love the look of burlap
and, it's so inexpensive for your projects. This table runner has a little romance to it.

 I love the lace and roses!! It gives the runner some flair!!!

 Pretty!! You think???

 First measure the length of your table and cut. I made mine 18 inches wide. I cut it 19 inches wide.
I need 1/2 inch for the hem on each side.

Since my sewing machine was already out i used it to hem each side. If your using your
machine iron it first. You will be happy you did!!

 Sew hem on each side!! I bet you already knew that.

It's 18 inches wide now!

 Now i have my lace, roses, and navy blue fabric ready to go. Here is where i use my fabric glue.

I measured how long i wanted my lace to be. Mine hangs 10 inches. I cut it 12 inches to have extra to fold over. When i placed it where i wanted it i glued it on.

 Then i added a 2 inch blue strip of fabric. Again i cut it 3 inches to have some extra fabric to fold over. Then i glued the strip on.

 I bought a yard of the red roses. You can buy it by the yard. It was 5.99 a yard. I had a coupon 
and got it for 50% off. You gotta do, what you gotta do!!

 If you want to add another cute idea for your table just wrap a glass votive candle with a piece of 
wrapping paper and hold it on with bakers twine. It's all about the red, white, and blue!!

Sprinkle some stars around!!!!

                                                                 Have a great day!!!

Garage Sale And Thrift Store Finds

All the garage sales are starting, and i have been to several of them. There is nothing like 
the thrill of the hunt. Every year i have a garage sale with my daughter at her house. Since
i change things around so much, and my style is always changing, i sell a lot of my stuff. Then
i can buy the stuff i'm interested in at the time. The stuff i really love i would never sell. Well,
i wanted to show you a few of my newest finds. 

 I found this picture at the thrift shop for $15.00 and i really love it for summer. I am loving anything
enamel! The enamel pan was $1.00 and the pfaltzgraff pitcher was $2.00. I have a new look for $18.00. 

The framed... The Milkmaid... picture i found at a garage sale. There is something about this picture
that i love so much. It was $8.00.

Vintage white milk glass mason jars with blue tops i found at a yard sale. $8.00 ( I love bowls)

I found this very old bowl at a garage sale. $5.00. It holds my potatoes!!

What do you do with a blanket covered canteen??? How about using it for a vase!!  $10.00 at 
a yard sale. I can have the things i want if i do some digging, and get my hands dirty. That is the
Thrill of the hunt!!! On a budget!! You can too!!

                                                           Have a great day!!
