I know Karla, right??? How in the world did women cook all the stuff they did from scratch??? PLUS they probably didn't even have air conditioning either! Good grief, I would have just died. Happy Birthday to your sweet hubby...I know he must be wonderful because he loves you ~ sending you hugs and love, Dawn

I bought two of those pans at Bottoms Up. They are old, and really nice. Everything we bake is heart shaped now!

I cook from scratch all the time, but not to this extent. There were a lot of people here for dinner, and it was a ton of food. I had four frying pans going. My grandma had nine kids, so this would have been an every day thing for her, not a special occasion! Plus she would have killed her own chickens. And you are right, Dawn, no air conditioning. Or dishwasher!

Hi, Karla! Glad your hubby had a good birthday; sounds like a great time. Those pies sure look yummy!!


I love the second picture of Sugarwings. That smile!

Can I ask you a question about antiquing in St. Joe? Is there another mall there besides Jesse James? I sure would appreciate it if you could let me know by email. My friend and I are heading up there Saturday.

Hi Karla, I hope this finds you well. Oh my what a wonderful meal you created, your pies look so good and to have little helpers how fun. Happy Birthday to your husband, and yes he is handsome and so young, you both are. I would love to win your beautiful collage, I love your beautiful work. I just wanted to let you know that your blog has helped me so much, I know I have not commented on it much in the last couple of months, as I have been taking care of my ill parents, and when I am tired and down it is always uplifting to visit your blog. Thank you so much. I am wishing you a wonderful summer. Hugs, Terri


Happy birthday to your husband -- what a lucky guy! My husband would love that entire menu!! I have had a hankering for blueberry pie myself lately...yum!!


You are right, cooking from scratch everyday was a full-time job! But it all looks delicious! Looks like a happy family occasion!


A new kitchen like yours deserves to have dinners made from scratch!!

Four and a half hours in the kitchen preparing food for this special bday occasion? Bless your heart! The menu sounds so yummy. Happy belated bday to your hubby!

Sugarwings' hair looks so cute! She looks like a little doll in these photos.

Still admiring that collage . . . . ; )


I've just killed an hour of middle-of-the-night insomnia by exploring your beautiful blog! What a lovely place! WOuld you mind if I followed you on FB?- as my blog is on blogger so the 'follow' thingy is different.
I better bookmark you too so I can come back here :)

I've finally got some quiet time to catch up on my favorite blog!
I can't believe how grown up Sugarwings is getting! She just gets more and more beautiful!


Happy Day to Handsome Husband -- and boy, Sugarwings is growing up!


Yes, your hubby is a handsome man and the two of you make a beautiful couple. So glad he had a happy birthday. You always make everything so special with the thoughtful things you do.
