butterscoth pie revisited!!!

i was thrilled today to hear that the lovely willow had not only made my grandma j's butterscotch pie, but she posted pictures and the recipe on her blog. willow manor is one of my staple daily blog reads, always delightful, insightful and interesting! please go visit; you won't be disappointed!

the above piece is my home sweet home apple collage. it always makes me think of grandma j. she and i spent many hours peeling apples together for apple pie, apple salad and fruit salad. i love the old vintage feel of it with all the torn pieces of ephemera including some recipes for apple desserts. it is available in my etsy shop!!

until tomorrow, my blog friends -- peace, love joy!!

Julie, I really like your collages. Do you make your own paper to use? I love to cut and paste but I have never tried a piece like yours. Beautiful work.

willow said...

Julie, thanks so much for your kind compliments! All of us at the manor enjoyed Grandma J's pie.

Charming collage! I remember my grandmother peeling apples into a huge bowl on her lap. :)

auburn kat, yes apple pie is a fave of mine as well. I like to put ice cream and warm caramel ice cream topping on top. omg, good!

xue, can't wait to hear how you like it!

strider, yes, it's like watching the food network late at night. makes me want to snack!!

steviewren, i occasionally make my own paper but mostly i use printed scrapbook paper and ephemera like vintage books.

willow, yes, my grandma did the same thing with the bowl in her lap. i wish i had the bowl. maybe my mom does, i'm not sure. glad you all enjoyed the pie!
