Pinecones, Wreaths and Pies, Oh My!

Corny title but it kept running through my head so I went with it!

Made another vintage paper wreath.    It was meant to be used on the mirror in the sunroom but I liked the way it looked in the den (actually it looked good over the mantel too!)



Also, last year I saw some beautifully dipped pinecones in a yummy color so I kept that idea in my inspiration file and yesterday I dipped my own!    Only problem is they are still kinda wet, hope they dry out before Christmas!   I made a whole bunch of them and plan to put them (along with some white sprayed ones) in my big dough bowl in the dining room.

And finally I made my first egg custard pie!   All you bakers out there probably can’t believe that I just admitted this.    I always loved the egg custard at Morrison’s Restaurant but I never tried making one.    The other night my son called and casually mentioned he wished someone would make him one.    So I searched the internet for a quick and easy egg custard pie and found a recipe.    I’ll post the recipe later.


We’re heading to the lake house today for our annual family Christmas party.    My sister and I decided we’d just do spaghetti, salad and garlic bread with all kinds of desserts.

The wreath is so pretty. Love this look! It looks great over the mirror. I also really like your color dipped pine cones. They would look great on my peacock and red tablescape.

Your wreath is fabulous. I love it, but that mirror just takes my breath away. It is wonderful. Have fun with your family. Hugs, Marty

Judy- I hope you have a wonderful time at the cottage! I haven't made custard pie in years and years. My Dad loved it...that and gingerbread cake!

I like the dipped pine cones. The color is gorgeous and your wreath is lovely, too. Happy Weekend- xo Diana

Pretty, pretty wreath. I decided to try one a few weeks ago and now I've made several. They are rather addicting!
Merry Christmas and Enjoy.

I ADORE your paper wreath! I think I want to try my hand at making one. Where do you get the music sheets for it? Your mantel looks beautiful too. I love the way you decked it out with an outdoor theme. I'm going to look at some of your older posts so I can enjoy your other decorations. BTW, I've never made a custard pie either. Ha!

Oops! I realized that you used book pages for your wreath. Now, THAT I have!
