hats, finds, & a recipe!

This little set of hats is on its way to Disney, to help a special little boy celebrate his birthday in style this Saturday! I can't think of a better place to spend your second birthday than the Happiest Place on Earth, can you?Happy 2nd Birthday, Sam!!!
BIG HUGS from our family to you!

And what about this soft & sparkly little hat??? This one belongs to an adorable little princess that will be celebrating her "Winter ONEderland" birthday next month! Her mom is so creative, I can't wait to see this party come to life!

So excited about a couple of little finds from yesterday...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these sweet vintage inspired treat bags! I'm thinking MiLk & CooKIeS for the neighbors and for the littles' Christmas parties...maybe we'll even bring Santa a treat when we take pictures with him in a couple of weeks :)And then there are these two little vintage books that I stumbled upon while looking for something else...love it when it works out that way!And Finally, the requested recipe is here!

Corn & Crawfish Bisque
from my dear friend Heidi's kitchen
{she really should write a cookbook...she's THAT good!}
Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 bunch of green onions
one package of frozen crafish tails (thawed & rinsed)
2 cans of Campbell's potato soup
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
1 can of kernel corn (drained)
4 ounces of cream cheese
2 cups of 1/2 & 1/2

Directions:
1. Saute onions in one tablespoon of butter and set aside.
2. Saute crawfish tails in 1 tablespoon of butter and set aside.
3. Combine all ingredients including onions & crawfish in a large pot and heat thoroughly.
Keep warm in the crockpot. You could also let the whole thing simmer in the crockpot after sauteing the onions & crawfish (for added flavor).
Great for parties!

Enjoy!

Love the hats!!! I noticed in a previous post you said you would share how to make them? =)
Did I miss that post?

Thank you!

I had so many requests for the hats that I started selling them so I don't have a tutorial up, but here are some fun tutorials I googled for another blogger who was interested.

Haven't tried any of them so I can't attest to how easy/great they are, and they're all a bit different from how I make mine, but maybe fun to give one a try!
