Pie For Breakfast

Have you ever had pie for breakfast?

A few months ago, this friend of mine started a "Pie for Breakfast Club" where on the first day of each month she prepares several variations of a particular flavor pie.

Strawberry pie was the flavor of the month of June and the 1st happened to fall on Friday...my day off..
I scooted over there and enjoyed the most deelish strawberry pies my palate has ever tasted...e.v.e.r.

Check out the vintage strawberry pattern on the table cloth..what a clever gal.

The sweet peas were freshly picked from her mother-in-law's garden.  Love the sweet scent o f sweet peas..don't you?
I admit it...I had two helpings of this strawberry peach pie...yumolala

Kathryn has come up with a wonderful party idea...

Crafting Bees

I made these little bags for our very first "Finish Your Project"  or what I'd like to coin "Crafting Bee Night"

Thought it would be the perfect bag to carry scissors, thread, pens, pencils, phones, anything your little heart desires

Everyone could personalize their zipper pull with beads
Letters ready to be strung

And bees

Bee charms

Augmenting crafting bee bags.
Putting individual touches to Bee-bags.

Young and "old" alike brought their own project to work on....and we had quite the variety...
