Oh me, oh my! It is a Tuesday and I am posting the Liz and Kalli Tuesday art project. I am going to be very diligent about getting back on our normal schedule with these posts. This week's word is dreamy. Liz's piece is on the top and Kalli's piece is on the bottom.
I thought about the most dreamy way that I could spend the day and baking came to mind. I love it, and I rarely do it. It seems hard to justify spending a whole lot of time on pastry from scratch when there are so many other things to do. However, it is time well spent and I should treat myself this good from now on. I picked up my copy of Jamie At Home, which is a very dreamy cook book by a very dreamy British chef, and flipped to the section all about winter foods. This recipe for Blackberry and Apple Pie was there and it sounded, well, dreamy! I found the recipe online for you here. I highly recommend enjoying this pie with a spot of tea, some window gazing, and dreaming about the future and beautiful things and plans, etc. I love dreaming about plans, it is the actual executing of plans that gets tricky for me.
I saw these blush pink gerbera daisies at Whole Foods and had to buy them to photograph and enjoy the color in my apartment. The color just felt dreamy and romantic to me, without being too artificially bright like some gerberas.
What a truly gorgeous and romantic image, Kalli! That color does feel dreamy. I'm glad that we were both thinking along the same lines on this one; simple pleasures are the most dreamy things in life.
