Twelve fleur des lis pendants all painted and ready to go for a special order! This was a perfect project for me, I just love this symbol. I'll have to offer a few of these on my site, and maybe paint a couple more for me!

Yummy (and easy!) Pumpkin Muffins

These muffins are so yummy and so easy! I believe this is a Weight Watchers
recipe, but it was passed on to me by a friend. I just had to share...

1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1 box spice cake mix
1/8 cup water

**option... 2/3 bag of mini chocolate chips for the chocolate lovers! Yum!

Mix together with mixer and fill muffin cups half full, or bake in muffin
tins sprayed with cooking spray. Bake approx. 12 minutes or until
toothpick in center comes out clean. Bake at temperature according to
directions on the box.
