My Daughter's Pumpkin Pie~

Is beautiful.. the edges are all cut out pumpkins.. golden and sugary.. the filling moist but set.. the cinnamony scent..divine..
The thought behind it.. sweeter than the pie~

I topped that serving w/ a dollop of whipped cream and Love In a Cage..
aka,Physalis,earth cherries,cerises de terre..Or l'amour en favorite~

It's a perfect name for the different sweet little fruit~
AS for the pie..I will get the recipe:)

The small board my Physalis are resting on..? It's a board I bought from..Ann.T..

she is hosting a giveaway..of beautiful spoons :) And she sells these boards:)
My larger board is on my sidebar here ..right below Wowzio:)

Bread looks beautiful on it too..

They are one of akind~ Do drop by and see~
