christmas thanksgiving

Hello Sugar Pies! I wanted to wish you a blessed Thanksgiving!

Don’t you love this homey scene! Grandma, wearing her apron basting the golden roasted turkey, a pie sitting on top of the stove, rich brown gravy is probably simmering in one pan and a sweet and tart homemade cranberry sauce in another. The grandkids have arrived with squeals of joy as they hug and kiss grandma and grandpa then run off to see their cousins. A rush of cold wind blows in as Grandpa holds the door open for his daughter and son-in-law but then quickly shuts it when everyone is safely inside. The house is warm, snug and smells delicious! It smells like love. It smells like home. Ahh…this sweet scene brings back so many memories that warm my heart.

Whatever your Thanksgiving looks like this year I’m hoping your home is filled with love, yummy aromas and pie! butter-crunch-pumpkin-bars-500x647 (2)

If you ran out of time to make a pie, or pick up a pie, you can whip this together in just a few minutes and to tell you the truth I love it even more that pumpkin pie!! Don’t forget the whipped cream! Here’s the link for the recipe!

Sugar Pie Farmhouse now has a private Facebook Page where you can connect with vintage lovin’ gals with a heart for keeping the cozy home fires burnin’ like you! This is the place where Sugar Pie Sisters can join in and talk about anything from Cooking, sharing Recipes, Gardening, Beauty, Decorating, Holiday Ideas, sharing favorite products, Parenting or anything to do with Homemaking! It will feel like we’re sitting around the kitchen table chatting over a good hot cup of coffee or tea with a slice of pie!

If you belonged to the  Girl-Talk Forum here on the website or have wanted to join we are meeting over on Facebook now! We’ve had so many  technical issues with the current forum. My whole website needs to be updated but the cost is not in my budget right now…so we do what we can do with what we have right? Lol!

Come join us HERE!
