Up early this morning to bake a punkin pie. House smells heavenly
Sure hope it taste as good as it looks. It's a skinny pie. :) Does that mean I can eat all I want? I got the recipe from Jen of Our Southern Table blog. Thank you Jen for your perfected recipe :) I tried to get fancy with dough leaves off to the side. Not sure I got it right! :)
While the pie was baking, I went outside to gather something to make an arrangement with. Other than the usual mums and orange flowers, I didn't see much at the grocery store yesterday, so thought I would make do with what was in the garden. Since our last hard frost, pickins' are slim. I ended up with baby pine cones, the last of the Dusty Miller, some cedar, and dried hydrangeas that were still on the bushes. Not bad....do you think? I have a number of vintage boxes I have collected over the years, one of my favorites being this Wheat Bread box. Love the rustic with the elegance of the old silver champagne bucket.
One of my favorite things I have done in the family room is add the "Blessings" script on the wall over the bay window. Every time I look at it, I smile.
Blessings to you and yours this Thanksgiving.
