Pumpkin Pie

Decided to make a pumpkin pie now that the weather is cooling. I use canned pumpkin (that sound is Martha Stewart hitting the floor) and just follow the recipe on the back. I used little wilton fall cookie cutters to make the leaves, pumpkins and acorns.
I made all the details with a paring knife. It took a few minutes but was kind of fun. Then I laid the leaves on a chop stick so they wouldn't be 'flat'.
Today I took two pieces to grandma's house and shared it with her. Well worth the effort as she admired my handiwork. A compliment from her is second to none.

Tomorrow I will share with you where these cups/plates came from and about my new fabric for my chairs.

One more 'little thing'. This little sleeping old black dog is my GIRL, Reckless. She turned FIFTEEN today. Not only is that OLD, in general, it is especially good when you were a bad puppy and got into Ibuprofen when you were a pup. She was expected to have a shortened lifespan because of it. She has some gray (see ear tips), has to take Derramax on bad days (arthritis) and just isnt' as spry these days, but she is doing pretty well. Happy b'day old girl. I have had her in my life longer than my hubby! LOL
