Postcards & Pumpkin Bread!

Just got done making this vintage style postcard garland for my Beehive Cottage Etsy Shop
I will also be making these for The Vintage Marketplace!
I also made postcard sets for birthdays, weddings, or everyday use.
 Always adding new tags to my shop too!
Also busy making journals for both Etsy shops! 
You are welcome to come visit!
Time to share my pumpkin bread recipe again!

     Maryjane's Blue Ribbon Pumpkin Bread
(I won my blue ribbon at my hometown family festival!)
1 cup Crisco oil
4 eggs
2/3 cup water
2 cups canned pumpkin
3 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups sugar
2 t baking soda
1 t nutmeg
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
handful of raisins & chopped nuts-optional

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Blend together in mixer, oil, eggs, water, sugar and pumpkin.
*Mix together dry ingredients in a separate bowl, then slowly add to pumpkin mixture. 
Beat until well blended. Add raisins and nuts.
*Grease and flour 2 large loaf pans or several mini pans 2/3 full.
*Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes for large loafs 
and less for mini or until bread passes the clean toothpick test!
I have been making this yummy bread for 35+ years and it is always a big hit...more please!
Have a wonderful day!
