I bought this plaque with a hook at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section. I was wishing I had two of them, but my daughter bought the other one. I wanted a small hook to hang in my entry hallway for visitor's keys or jackets.
I took the plaque and mod podged some scrapbook paper on it. I added this wooden medallion that I also bought at Hobby Lobby. I painted it and glued it on and had my hubby hang it up on the wall. Gonna keep my eye out for another to put on the other side of the doorway. Easy & functional--my kind of craft, lol!!

My son absolutely loves Buttermilk Pie --even though it comes as a complete surprise to me. When he was little, he was such a picky eater and wouldn't have thought of letting his lips touch anything of the sort.
This is his Granny Lewis' recipe and I thought a good way for us to keep up with it would be to post it on my blog. (So Gabe, this one is for YOU!!!) =)
1-1/3 cups sugar
3 Tbsp flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup buttermilk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp lemon extract (try 1/2 tsp)
Combine sugar and flour and mix well. Add eggs, butter, buttermilk
and beat well. Stir in flavorings and pour in to pie shell. Bake at
400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce to 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
