Strawberry Pie with Orphan Quilt Patches

When I photograph things for my shop, I try to shoot the angles a non-virtual customer would look at.  And I try to photograph a little story too, because I like stories. 

When I made a strawberry pie the other day, I suddenly realized I had a little story in four parts for my four new hotpads.  A box of berries.  A tart crust, cooling.  A measure of sliced berries.  A pie!

If you like potholder #4, you better buy it before I change my mind, unlist it, and stick it in my kitchen drawer.

Hi, Margo! It's so nice to "meet" you; thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!

It's been fun to peek around your blog a little bit...I can identify with a lot of your recent posts: making strawberry shortcake and strawberry jam, being an introvert, using liquid smoke (I have one recipe in particular that I just love the liquid smoke in). :)

Thanks for being a spot of beauty in the world of blogging!

I love it when photographs tell stories. When composing my own shots the story that is captured and told is my main line of thinking. The Pioneer Woman Photography blog has an excellent article about telling stories through photography.

Lovely potholders, too!
