I like foodie blogs, don't you? I like pretty cookbooks too, even though the best recipes come from stain marked file cards stuck in a drawer. But an artful cookbook gets me every time, even though I would never try half of the recipes in them. (If any.) I didn't make this pie either. It's just the front man to my newly finished knitting project.
I thought, "I could just show the thing like a hot dog on a plate, but why not add a little flavor and atmosphere? A little flair?"
I think everyday items should elevate your life. I wanted my potholders to do something more than annoy me, so I made my own. The colors coordinate with my kitchen stuff.
The stripes give it a sophisticated frenchy vibe. But I was really just trying to use up the last of the thrift store yarn! Turns out this stuff, Aunt Lydia's rug yarn, isn't being produced anymore. You can still get some on Etsy and Ebay for ten bucks a skein. . . . I don't want it that bad. . . . (yes I know that's supposed to be "badly". but I'm going for attitude here...)
I'll keep hitting the thrift stores though, and hoping to find more of my colors.
This is Marie Callender's pie. I love her so! It was pictures of your cherry pie that made me have to have her! I learned to cover the messy part up with a towel like this in staging class. . . . (joke)
Hope your week is sweet as pie!
Thanks so much for coming by!
