Have a slice of pie.


I've baked up something special for your eyes to feast on tonight. My school schedule has finally allowed me to spend some time at my craft desk, and I wanted to show you what I came up with. It's pumpkin pie!



These little charms were inspired by my favorite holiday dessert (or possibly even my favorite dessert in general), complete with a dollop of whipped cream. They're not in my etsy shop, because I'm taking them with me to the Fresh Blend show this weekend. I was pleased with the way they turned out, because this was something new for me and it isn't always pretty when I try new things.

And now, here are a few things that made me happy today. For starters, I went to work at my Dad's shop and I took an early-moring photo of the last few wildflowers I could find, because the time of year for them to go to sleep is quickly approaching and I may not have the chance again until spring.



When we went to lunch, I got to ride in this:



Then I came home to find my kitty playing peek-a-boo under the rug. It was pretty adorable in my humble opinion, so I captured a few photos.





What is making you happy today?

Ooo those pie charms are super cute :)

That's awesome that it was your first time to make them and they turned out so perfect!

Good luck this weekend at the coffee house craft event! Sounds like you're gonna have fun :)

I just may like the pumpkin pie ones more than the strawberry cake ones! Gasp! And I LOVE the pics of your kitty getting frisky...sure put a smile on my face!

Cute little charms! Wouldn't it be amazing if whipped cream was actually sparkly?

Pili said...

First of: SUCH CUTE PIES!! Big kudos!

And that kitty of yours is so totally adorable!!

Rheea said...

Your kitty is so adorable, Holly!! I'm a bigger dog-lover than a cat's but your kitty almost made me changed my mind (I still have to be loyal to Nono).

Those pumpkin pies look mouth-watering! Can you make real ones? There are so many things that made me happy today. First of all, I found two more shops to consign my works at!! Secondly, I caught a great movie today, 2012. You got to watch it! Plus, the perfect, cooling weather.. wonderful dinner, seeing my beloved Nono, etc. There are so many things to be happy about everyday. I feel so blessed! :)

I LOVE the pie charms! Pumpkin is my all time favorite! Yumm!!

Let's see... today I am happy because my pup is home from the vet, and while she's still a little groggy, I can see that she's doing well and she'll be just fine in a few days. Yay! ♥

And, my calendar is officially open for the next couple of weeks, so I'm finally finding the time to get going again on all these silly ideas I have for my shop. If only I could wiggle my nose, and blink a few times... things my magically appear... but it's still fun getting things done anyways. ;)

And I'm happy to see a new post on your blog. Your blog ALWAYS makes me smile, and you are an inspiration when I make up posts of my own.

Optimism attracts optimism. I just love seeing life through your eyes. Simple and sweet, and you always enjoy the little things.

I love YOU for that!
cheers miss!

Rose said...

I will have to make a pumpkin pie some time, im yet to try it.
Your cat is so similar to mine, and by the looks of it just as cheeky :)
Im happy today because I have the day off! Not doing anything special but relaxing.

Oh how CUTE!! Love these pumpkin pie slices!!!

Princess Caitlin said...

Awesome pumpkin pie! I've had two slices in the past week or so. Lucky me!

Cute kitty!

Today, the sunshine is making me happy. And hearing the little people play outside in the leaves with their friends makes me happy. And knowing I can crochet whatever I want because I've got this week's orders finished makes me happy.

:D

Tuppence said...

So you know those best friend hearts that come in half to share? I think your pumpkin pie would be so much more fun than half a heart. You can include way more bestest-ever friends than just one, AND everyone gets to rock some pie!

Oh, and your kitty is to die for.

devonrose said...

How cute is that pie? Hope you sell lots of cuties at the Fresh Blend Show!

Kristin said...

Ahhhhhhhh, your fur baby is too cute! I'm happy at the moment as I'm blogging and sipping some hazelnut coffee while my bambino blissfully naps. I bet I just jinxed myself. ah ha

Jennifer Juniper said...

That pie is so cute! And I can't believe you rode in that sweet car!

I think we need to make you a kitchen window, girl! I have the perfect idea!
