Happy Memorial Day - Strawberry Pie Recipe

The first time I went to Jon's parent's home his mother made a strawberry pie. I am not really a pie person, but this pie was absolutely delicious and has been a summer favorite of mine ever since. She shared the recipe with me and we have enjoyed making it every year during strawberry season. It's really easy and such a fun dessert this time of year. And the red strawberries against the blue and white HomeGoods runner has "summery" feel to it.

The girls and I made one last week and we thought we would share the recipe with you all:


1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup + 1 Tbsp. shortening
2-3 Tbsp. cold water

Mix together and press into pie dish
(We've also used that pre-made Pillsbury dough before too when we've been in a hurry and it works great as well)
Cook at 425 degrees for first 5 minutes then down to 375 degrees for 5-10 minutes

Now place between 2-4 cups of sliced strawberries in the crust

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
4 Tbsp. strawberry jello powder

Mix dry ingredients
Add water
Cook over medium to high heat until mixture is clear and starts to boil
Let cool a few minutes then pour over strawberries
Refrigerate for 3-4 hours

We are so grateful for all of those who have and currently are sacrificing their lives for our freedom!

We have you all have a wonderful Memorial Day!

"Look At The Sea..."

One of my favorite L. M. Montgomery quotes is this one, so we figured it would make the perfect print for summer!  We are offering it in our shop in both a navy blue print as well as a chalkboard print version (scroll down for those photos).

The girls love coming in here and seeing their horse picture from HomeGoods.

Have a fabulous Friday!

"When I Saw You I Fell In Love, And You Smiled Because You Knew" Sign

We've got another new sign that will be available in our shop Thursday morning at 10 AM EST. This one not only is fun to display in your own home, it also makes a wonderful wedding gift! We used the quote "When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew" by Arrigo Boito in white ink on a black background and it's framed in a gray stained wood. 

We moved the shoes for the product photos above but normally the girls keep their favorite little boots from Joyfolie here on top of these baskets. The baskets from HomeGoods work perfectly in here. We keep the girls shoes in here and it's nice and easy for them to grab them on their way down the stairs each morning.
