Happy Wednesday!

My computer has been acting up a little bit so I couldn't finish up the post I was working on so I thought instead I just have some peony pictures for today.

This gray tufted bench from HomeGoods is still one of my favorite finds for this room.

Happy Memorial Day - Strawberry Pie Recipe

The first time I went to Jon's parent's home his mother made a strawberry pie. I am not really a pie person, but this pie was absolutely delicious and has been a summer favorite of mine ever since. She shared the recipe with me and we have enjoyed making it every year during strawberry season. It's really easy and such a fun dessert this time of year. And the red strawberries against the blue and white HomeGoods runner has "summery" feel to it.

The girls and I made one last week and we thought we would share the recipe with you all:


1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp. shortening
2-3 Tbsp. cold water

Mix together and press into pie dish
(We've also used that pre-made Pillsbury dough before too when we've been in a hurry and it works great as well)
Cook at 425 degrees for first 5 minutes then down to 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes

Now place between 2-4 cups of sliced strawberries in the crust

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
4 Tbsp. strawberry jello powder

Mix dry ingredients
Add water
Cook over medium to high heat until mixture is clear and starts to boil
Let cool a few minutes then pour over strawberries
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours

We are so grateful for all of those who have and currently are sacrificing their lives for our freedom!

We have you all have a wonderful Memorial Day!

"Look At The Sea..."

One of my favorite L. M. Montgomery quotes is this one, so we figured it would make the perfect print for summer!  We are offering it in our shop in both a navy blue print as well as a chalkboard print version (scroll down for those photos).

The girls love coming in here and seeing their horse picture from HomeGoods.

Have a fabulous Friday!
