344th Inspire MeTuesday

Welcome to the 344th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Boy there was so much to see and so many fabulous tutorials in last weeks links.  I love it when you guys so generously share all the "how-to's" of your fabulous projects and makeovers.  Plenty of pretty fall design to see too.  Here is a small sample, check them all out.

Look at this fabulous place to sit and enjoy some gorgeous fall weather.  Rattlebridge Farm shared a spot that I could just enjoy all day.  I adore her pillows and throw and how wonderful is that scarecrow.


I love her pretty kitchen and the gorgeous counter tablescape that Everyday Living created.  What a fabulous way to start the day.




Here is a step by step tutorial on how to create an impressive floral arrangement.  Celebrate & Decorate does a beginners step by step with tons of pictures.  Free magnolia leaves and some feathers and this stunning arrangement is done.

If you've been coveting one of those Tobacco baskets but don't like the price, Twelve On Main teaches you how to make your own with this step by step tutorial.  I love this idea.


This is one of those times when you need two pictures.  Vintage Refined knocked it way out of the ballpark with this bathroom makeover.
BEFORE


AFTER - be sure to go see everything, so much inspiration to copy for your own bath.

A Real Life Miracle - My Granddaughter's Story

I want to introduce you to an amazing woman and introduce you to the miracle of her life.  If you are new here, I would like to have you meet my granddaughter-in-love - Megan.  She is the gorgeous woman in the middle - in the wheelchair.  She has started a blog to tell the world the story of her life.

Tiny Handed Life


5 years ago she married my grandson -
 Jake, one of the most amazing men in the whole world.  In a series of posts she shares the story of her life with SMA11 ( Spinal Muscular Atrophy type ll ) , her family, marriage and children.




While there are challenges to carry a baby, Megan had her prayers answered.

Three years ago I shared the story of Bronx and his miracle birth.   His lungs were so weak when he was born that he had to be in the NICU for several weeks.  Such a tough little fighter.


Bronx is now the most adoreable young man you will ever meet.  He is personality overload and another Miracle from God.


A year ago he became a big brother to Shai.  They both prove that the Lord has no limit to his Miracles.


The following stories are posts Megan has shared on her blog.  I hope you will read her story and follow her blog.  She is an amazing woman that will touch your heart with her ability to look at life with her cup full to the brim.

I Deserve Babies Too

Livin' the life in my shoes

Pumpkin Bread - Best Fall Treat


I love Fall, the hot summers are finally over and around here fall weather couldn't be more perfect.  I also love fall colors and of course pumpkins and mums.

The cooler weather always makes me want to start baking and fill the house with wonderful smells of pumpkin, apples and cinnamon.

One of our very favorite things is Pumpkin Bread and I have an amazing recipe.  Fresh, hot out of the oven and it smells soooooooooooooo good.


This recipe makes 3 large loafs and freezes well.  It is so moist and soooooooo good.  I hope you give it a try.

Pumpkin Bread

4 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. oil
6 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 c. water
3 tsp. soda
3 c. pumpkin (1 large can)
5 1/4 c. flour
1 1/2 c. nuts (optional)
Mix all ingredients together as given.  Bake in 3 well greased loaf pans at 350° for l hr. and 20 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.

(This is my well worn and used recipe card.  It even has a few pumpkin stains on it too. )


When cool I always frost mine with a nice powdered sugar glaze.  (Just add a small amount of milk to powdered sugar and stir until smooth, generously spread over the top of the loaf and let run down the sides.)   These loaves freeze really well.  I wrap them in heavy duty foil and then place inside a freezer bag and store in the extra fridge in the laundry room.  It is so nice to have one on had at all times.  When they thaw they are just as moist as the day they came out of the oven.  (There's also a casserole and some cookies stashed away in the freezer too.)


Happy Fall, give these a try.  I think your family will love them.
