GW finds and some new pics

Yesterday I was remiss when I reported about Melissa from Farmhouse primitives won, it's actually Farm Field Primitives. Sorry Melissa!

So today I'm going to a dear lady's house from our church, Alice. I have shared with you all about my quest to conquer pie baking. I've always enjoyed baking. So despite our heat warnings she says that doesn't stop her, LOL! We're gonna bake today. She has her own recipe that she promises to share and I'm really hoping she shows me a trick to the crust. I have so much trouble getting that right. The filling is much easier for me. She has a large garden, bless her heart. When we chatted she let me know that she has fresh rhubarb and some cherries that are ready. Yum! I can't wait. I'll report back hopefully with pictures.

Also, I thought I would leave with you few pictures from this weekend of my DC that my husband took. I think they turned out pretty good. I picked up some things at a GW store this weekend and some vintage dresses yesterday and they are so darn cute. The pineapple and slaw cutter were only 50 cents each.

Hope you all stay cool today!


  1. I love the cute little Pineapple..

  2. Your children are so cute. (All 4 of them!!) I always have trouble with crusts also when I make pies. They never look the way I want them to. My DH thinks the inside is the best part and doesn't eat the crust anyway. Tastes all the same whether it looks good or not!! Thanks again for your giveaway. I can't wait to get it.

  3. Your kids are adorable!!

    Looking forward to seeing how your pie came out!

    hugs, Linda

  4. Good luck with the pie baking. I too had trouble with crust until I took my culinary class. I hope you take pictures. :)

    The kids pictures with the pets are great.

    Take Care and stay cool,
