It's the little things...

Hello everyone.. 
How are you all this evening?
I just thought that I would show you the gift that my dear hubby gave me this weekend.. 
It is actually an early anniversary present.. 
My old mixer has almost had the biscuit so when these were on sale at Costco he decided to get one.. 
I love it.. 

I thought he deserved a little something, eh? smile...

It was delicious if I must 
Lots of apples with a bit of sugar and a speck of flour, some freshly grated nutmeg and half of a vanilla bean... 

Every good meal should have a happy ending, right?

I found this dear little teacup at the thrift store.. 

Thanks for dropping by sweet ladies.. 
I so look forward to your comments.. 

It is raining here in New Brunswick tonight.. 
I have missed hearing the spatter of raindrops against the windows... 
Spring is really on it's way... 
Well, I must go and make a nice cup of tea.. 

May the Lord bless and keep you my friends.. 


  1. Faye
    Happy Anniversary (early)!
    A great gift for a great baker.
    That pie looks very yummy!

  2. You'll whirl up a ton of goodness with that mixer!

  3. I'd take my tea with milk and no sugar, thank you! with a slice of pie!!!
    Your hubby is the best but I suspect he is protecting his own interests and you never disappoint!
    Best wishes, dear friend!

  4. Enjoy your new mixer,Faye. That pie looks so delicious. Wish I could just run over for a slice and a cup of tea. xo

  5. Hi Faye,
    What a fabulous gift, I have a Kitchen Aid and I LOVE it, it stands ready at my beck and call at all times. I like that! Someone who cooks as much as you do will enjoy it tremendously.
    Have a sweet evening.
    Hugs, Cindy

    1. Awesome gift ! That apple pie looks DELISH !!! I dont do much baking but I do have a mixer like that it was my mums she hardly used it cause she still insisted doing things the old fashioned way ! I know from some friends you will love this mixer they cook and bake a lot and they say it is the best tool they have in their kitchens ! Hope you get a lot of fun out of it ! Have a good day !

  6. Great gift and I am sure he enjoyed the pie as well. We had thunder, heavy rain and hail around 3:30 am this past morning. The weather today was around 70 degrees. Looking for more storm tonight. Enjoy the rain and the pie. Blessings!

  7. The pie looks really good. I got my kitchen aid mixer from my parents when they bought a new one. It sure gets a lot of use at my house. The teacup is beautiful.

    Have a wonderful evening.


  8. I could not help soon as I saw that big, beautiful mixer...I let out a big "YA HOO"!!!!!!! That Terry really is a wonderful guy, isn't he? Happy Anniversay...and may you both have sweet happiness the whole year through!

    I love the sweet tea cup. I have a collection of all blue and white things just like that. So pretty!


  9. What a wonderful gift...seems it's the week for KITCHEN AID mixers.
    I must get mine out and make something...need to get into the mix, just a little play on words there (no, not
    Love the darling cup.
    Oh my, what a wonderful pie! What temp to you bake yours at to be DONE, but not overly brown?

  10. I have that same mixer and I love it.
    Oh my...does that pie ever look yummy!!

  11. Happy early anniversary. Love it. The pie looks delicious!

  12. Hi, Faye:
    What a beautiful looking apple pie! I can almost taste it. We had a lot of wind today and tomorrow is supposed to be icy, I don't know if it's for the daytime or the night time. Supposedly no rain for us. It's very peaceful here right now.

  13. Your sweet little teacup looks like Canton ware.

  14. Happy Anniversary Faye! What a nice gift! And the pie looks delicious. I love your little teacup!

  15. Oh, you are blessed indeed! I would love to have one of those mixers. It would make baking and mixing things so much easier. I hear we're in for a nice winter storm tomorrow night. It's back! Oh well. It won't last. The teacup is sweet. Hugs, Pamela

  16. What a wonderful gift. I know mine comes in handy, especially with the family gatherings.Your pie looks amazing. I never seem to be able to make a good pie. :( So looking forward to spring. I have begun to bring out the bunnies and spring items. Springtime -a time of rebirth. Blessings ~Sara

  17. Faye, have you or would you post your recipe for pie crust. I'm not very successful at making it - I usually buy it. Mastering a good crust would be on my leap list. Thanks. Blessings from Wisconsin.

  18. Oh my goodness, Faye~ that is a wonderful present! Hubby bought one just like that for me our first Christmas we were married and I still LOVE mine. (I think he was trying to tell me something, though....)
    Your pie has inspired me~ I haven't made an apple pie in a long time. Maybe it's time to put my mixer to good use, eh? *haha*
    Enjoy your tea~ hope you have a restful night. Bad storms are supposed to be coming our way... please whisper a prayer for us, okay? ((HUGS))

  19. What a sweet gift. Especially if that's what you wanted.
    Happy Anniversary too. Hope it's a great one!

    Love that little cup. Perfect.

    Have a sweet day and stay warm.

  22. Well how about that! I received one of those mixers this past weekend also, only mine was red. I was quite shocked about it! But I have so enjoyed using it this week. The mashed potatoes this evening seemed much creamier and smoother.

    The apple pie looks so yummy! Have a terrific weekend~

  23. What a nice gift! I'm sure you (and him) will love it. I of course love the teacup. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  26. What a wonderful gift, Faye!! How sweet of your husband to surprise you with a new mixer. I'm sure you'll get plenty of use out of it. I must say I've never heard the expression 'had the biscuit'! :)
    I'm still using the same hand mixer I got as a present when I got married 20 years ago! It sure has mixed up a lot of delicious things for us over the years.
    My goodness, that pie looks delicious! Apple is one of my favorites. Yum! I'm sure your husband appreciated it.
    Hope you have a great weekend. :)
    Happy Anniversary!♥
