strawberry rhubarb pie






I thought it might be my last chance to pick up this gorgeous farm grown rhubarb and make a pie. So Sunday was all about relaxing and baking this beauty!! I tried a braided lattice top this time just for extra fun. It's looks lovely but I must say I think I like the coverage of a regular lattice top better. 
I ALWAYS use this pie crust recipe. It turns out so flaky and wonderful every time. And I used this pie filling recipe. I always try to choose the simplest recipe I can find. I don't like a lot of extra unnecessary stuff in my food. It turned out delicious!!

Lemons and Lace GIVEAWAY

I am so delighted to introduce you to Lemons and Lace.  This is the perfect L*O*V*E*L*Y boutique to introduce to you on a lazy Sunday evening.  I love the look and feel of everything in this shop. It makes me feel like I am drinking lemonade on a porch somewhere beautiful or having an upscale tea party in an old house. All these hand crafted items have such a fresh modern look with a vintage inspiration. I absolutely adore everything in this shop.
Lemons and Lace shop owner Camille was so generous and sent over several items for me to review.  I wore this headband out for an afternoon lunch and received two compliments. I love the color scheme and it's subtle, chic look. It is the perfect accessory for any outfit. Dress it up or down. I think it's my new best friend.



She also sent over a few things that I think my little Ginger is going to look A*D*O*R*A*B*L*E in. A beautiful orange flower barrette and a matching skirt barrette combo. Have a look at how gorgeous these little things are. 
Also, notice the lovely hand sewn tag that comes along with your item.  It's beautifully stitched ribbon and lace. This is the reason I love handmade. You would never see this amazing attention to detail on a commercial item.

saturday's farmers market


            Saturday is usually my favorite day of the week but unfortunately little M and I have had to go to farmer's market by ourselves the last 2 weeks because my poor hubby has been working so hard. But, I still love the market. I wish I could be surrounded by at that gorgeous food all the time. 
This week we snapped up some rhubarb for a  strawberry rhubarb pie of course and some cauliflower. I'm going to make a pasta dish with cauliflower, golden raisins, pine nuts and pancetta. Photos and recipes for everything coming soon.                 
    


I always have to throw in a couple of little M because he's too cute not to

SeamsMod Handmade Diaper Clutch GIVEAWAY


It's official, I am in L*O*V*E with SeamsMod and my new couture diaper clutch. It has been so long since I have actually received something for myself, let alone something this gorgeous and stylish.  Believe it or not before I had a baby I used to be quiet stylish.
The clutches are handmade out of beautiful, vibrant, modern fabrics that are soft and durable. Each clutch is adorned with a wristlet in matching fabric. This feature is amazing!!! Little M and I went to the park this afternoon and I took along my new diaper clutch. With the help of the wristlet, I was able to lift little M in and out of his stroller while carrying my camera and a box of crackers, all while my lovely new diaper clutch was secured to my wrist. I'm telling you I L*O*V*E this bag!!!!
Also, I was able to fit 3 diapers, a travel size box of wipes, a makeup compact, chap stick, my sunglasses, my cell phone, keys, AND a zip lock full of crackers for Milton. It's the P*E*R*F*E*C*T size!!! I was able to take absolutely everything I would have needed for a long afternoon without having to lug a huge diaper bag. It was amazing!! 
And it's so versatile. It's still the perfect bag even if you don't have any diapers to tote. For all you ladies with no kids or kids that are grown, this an amazing handbag to accompany any outfit. The perfect size for all your essentials.  I really couldn't be any happier with this bag. It makes the P*E*R*F*E*C*T gift for a baby shower or for a new mom. Every mom deserves to have this bag!!!   Have I mentioned I'm in L*O*V*E?

I always like to show one photo of the packaging. For me it's important. It's the first impression and this couldn't be any cuter. I would love to give this as a gift to a new mom.
