It was a pie safe that we purchased years ago. Rustic, beat up, full of character. I could never walk by it without thinking of what it would look like filled with pies. Over the years it’s housed prop glasses, plates, beautiful ceramics, but never pies. Eight years later I decided to do something about [...]

Winter Citrus, Revisited. Again.

by Matt on January 17, 2013
