Pumpkin Autumn Treats


Cakelet pans are such fun to use! I used my favorite pumpkin bread recipe for my Nordic Ware Autumn Treats pan.  My sweater clothed pumpkin is one that I made several years ago from and old sweater sleeve that I used to cover a faux pumpkin.  The napkin was given to me as a set of four, from a friend who stenciled them.  The leaf plate came from Wal Mart, awhile back. 

This teapot and the cream and sugar came from Ross years ago.  It's really a cute design, isn't it?  I'm having Twinings Pumpkin Chai tea today.


My vintage Johnson Bros teacup goes with so many things.



Aren't these the perfect shape for Fall treats?   My pumpkin bread recipe can be found here.  I baked the cakelets for about twenty minutes.


I finally was able to take my 13 year old granddaughter Ella, whose birthday was back in early September,  out for lunch.  My grands get so busy!  It was so nice to have this special date time with just her and to hear what all is going on in her life. 

Thank you for your visit!  xo

  5. I absoluately love the tea pot and creamer & sugar bowls. I have several cakelet pams from Nordic wear for things like this. I get many of them from King Arthur Backery Store in Vermont. I love going there every year. Tanks for the share.

  13. I think it is just wonderful that you take your grands out, individually, to listen to what is going on in their lives. What a dear grandmother you are to all of them! You always set such wonderful tablescapes for your tea parties. I can only imagine how welcome your guests feel in your home. God bless you for all you do for others sweet friend.

  17. Such a cute fall tea table, Kitty! Love the pumpkin tea set. The 'sweater' pumpkin is so cute, too! I have one cakelet pan - a mini bundt pan. Might try to make little pumpkins out of it with your nice recipe! Your granddaughter is precious and growing up so fast. So sweet that you make sure to have one on one time with her! Hugs xo K
