More Pie?

...well, yes as a matter of fact, there is. I thought I was done making pies (I'm not really lying to you) and there I was last night, after a wonderful dinner and talkies with My Pal Amy, rushing home to make more. I was trying to pass off that this was going to be a difficult task to Amy, but she kindly reminded me that I did indeed teach her how to make apple pie not too long ago...and in my enthusiasm, I danced around her kitchen telling her how easy it was (I was just trying to be supportive...mostly because she's not confident in the kitchen!)
OK...it is easy
I admit...and since the Creative Sunday group is taking a little field trip to our friend's house this afternoon to look at his Edward Gorey collection of wonderful things, and just visit...We thought we'd bring a yummy treat! Yes, this would be the friend who's son did the shoes for Jay (don't worry, I'm working on either some shoes or an introduction) and since we have tons of apples still...well, why not. You know, we drive around town and people's apple trees are just loaded down with apples, and no one seems to be picking them. We are thinking about picking theirs too...because my mom just confessed that they go through about 3 jars of applesauce a week at their house!

So here are two more pies...one of which I'm not sure what exactly I'm going to do with. I would love to send it to Jolene and her family (since they're in the land of no apple trees) or my sister, or my father and Patti, or any of my sweet blog readers but, I'm not confident that pies would make a good travelling companion in the mail.

The pie that will be going with us today is in one of my little vintage cake/pie carriers. This one is decorated with little apples (perfect, no?) and looks a little more like the fall. And is that little maple leaves and an acorn (with little detailing) as well as apple cut-out's? Why yes Virginia, it is! I usually save my acorns for my amazing pumpkin and pecan pies at Thanksgiving, but I was feeling especially creative last night...and thought why not? Besides, this year, I'm working on a 3-dimensional turkey for the tops of the pies (just kidding...I do happen to have turkey canape cutters, I'll probably just use those) It's so fun to dabble in Martha Stewartness! OK...I'm off to create a bit in the studio with a cup of Pumpkin Spice coffee (thank you Dina, for the tip) and eagerly awaiting Millstone's Holiday Peppermint. I know, not organic, but it's only once a year because they're limited editions (kind of like Starbuck's Pumpkin Pie flavors as well...yumm)
My house smells just amazing right now!

The pies look amazing. What a happy homemaker you are! My home could use some happy-making... If only those pies could fly!
P.S. The fish earrings will be posted in the next day or two - I swear!

That's it! I've gotta quit looking at your blog when I'm hungry. I need some pie! Looks delicious!
