  8. Happy Pink Saturday Emily Sweetie...
    Oh my does this tea ever look inviting? Red raspberry iced tea and key lime pie? Girl do you ever know how to treat your guests right. I am SO knocking on the door. We could sip tea, laugh and eat a little pie until our hearts content. Oh thank you for the gorgeous recipe share today. I have never made a key lime pie, but you have inspired me to try. (Then next time my Sis, Marydon comes for a visit, I can make it for her. Wouldn't she be surprised?)

    Love your dishes. That blue is SO gorgeous. Oh and those limes under the cloche, how fun is that? I have to tell you I am in love with your curtains. Yes, I saw them in the background, love the gold mixed with the dark red. SO pretty.

    Thank you for the delightful visit today at the The French Hutch. I adore coming here. Have a glorious weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

  17. My 22-year-old son just tasted Key Lime Pie for the first time a couple of days ago at a restaurant. Before that, every time I offered it, he wouldn't even want to try it. Well, this must have been the right place and the right time - he LOVED it! He practically ate all of mine and left his chocolate mousse untouched! I guess this might be a good time for me to make it again, huh? Your recipe comes at the perfect time!

  29. Hi Emily,

    I really like your blog. I love France and french things, too. I was so sure I would visit there one day when I was learning french in high school. Haven't gotten there yet, but you never know. Your hutch is just wonderful -- I love that style, and the Quimper Faience is simply beautiful. My in-laws have been to France many times; they really love it there.

    Thanks for visiting my blog this weekend and for taking time to leave a comment. So glad you enjoyed the photos; I've lived here all my life, but you really see things differently when you start to photograph them. I'll be doing some more posts on Old Salem a little later. Hope you have a great week!
