Today I was invited to lunch by my oldest daughter and her long-time friend, S.E. We met at the Silverton Cafe (Cincinnati), home of extraordinary double-decker sandwiches. After we had ordered, S.E. handed me a beautiful gift box and this was inside:
This 3-1/4 inch pie looks so good you can almost smell the home-baked aroma. S.E. hand-carved this out of basswood and painted it in a very realistic way.
The holder was her ingenious idea of a piece of an old bed spring.
The carving and painting are beautiful front and back.
The gift is especially touching to me because S.E. remembered that I love to bake pies – a real treasure.
And the sandwich was delicious!
