Fallow Week

I went to a few sales this past weekend but didn’t get much – there just wasn’t anything I was burning to bring home.

I picked up some forks (forks always seem to disappear in my house!) and a Pyrex pie plate at one estate sale, and to continue the pie theme, I picked up a new “oak leaf lattice cutter” for a dollar at the tail end of a tag sale where they just wanted to give things away.  I didn’t want an enormous couch that looked like a set piece from Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, though.

Not “my” lattice cutter, I haven’t taken any photos
of my sad little haul

I made a delicious mixed berry pie in the new pie plate, unfortunately it was devoured before I could take any photos.  I had never made pie crust from scratch before, it was really intimidating until I actually did it.  Now that I’ve done it, I’m all about makin’ pies.  This week I will attempt a peach pie.

Hoping this weekend is a little more exciting for sales.

As far as my bead table, right now it’s covered in beheaded silk flowers and I’ve been making pin-up girl flower hair clips hand over fist.  The first batch were really pathetic, it’s getting easier.  Photos later!
