Pics, books, and recipes

I am going to cover three topics today since I have lots of sewing to get to! First off My daughter's Homecoming dance was last Saturday and she looked beautiful. She and her date had a wonderful time. Here is a picture of the vintage dress she wore.

I have also been busy adding new items to my shop on Etsy. My latest handbag is a gorgeous cranberry floral print hobo bag. It sells for just $35.00 and would make a great gift for the holidays! I have also added some new vintage jewelry pouches as well as new table linens so check them out.

I also wanted to share with you an appetizer recipe that is so easy but so delicious. I get rave reviews on this and with the holidays approaching it is an elegant and easy appetizer for your next party.

Brie Toasts:

Bruschetta toasts - plain or only lightly seasoned
14oz. wheel of Brie Cheese
1/2 c chopped walnuts
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 melted butter

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F

On a cookie sheet, make a single layer of bruschetta toasts either store bought or home made, from a sliced baguette and toasted in the oven until golden.

Slice the brie cheese into 1/4" think pieces large enough to cover the toast. Place one slice on each toast.

Melt the butter and mix the brown sugar and walnuts into it. Spoon this mixture over the brie toasts.

Bake 5-8 minutes or until the brie has melted. Serve hot. Yummm! You won't be able to stop at one!

Have fun and happy crafting!
