Pirate chompers

I found "pirate chompers" at the store and my son wanted me to take a picture.  These are so funny looking:)

These are adorable and so easy to make! I have seen these year after year and this is my first time making them.   Have a roll of bathroom tissue? Your half way done:)  Wrap the bath tissue in newspaper and then wrap in fabric that you like.  I used a little piece of burlap as the stem.  So cute!

This morning I was around 70 degrees and here in Florida that is a gorgeous morning to wake up to:)  I decided to make Pumpkin Cookies and they are so good!

Sift together dry ingredients
Add to wet mixture 1/2 c at a time mix all together until smooth
Mix in raisins and nuts

Pumpkins from paperbacks

They are just so cute!

These are the cutest things!  I have seen these  paperback pumpkins all over the place and just had to make myself one.  I got my idea from here  I bought 1 paperback from a $1 store and found 2 more at Goodwill.  I took off the cover and started folding pages.....one book was over 560 pages!  That's a lot of folding:)  I glued the first and last pages together and stuck a piece of a branch in the center, added a leaf I cut from felt and tied a bow.  The face I cut from a template I made from a template.
