~ Today is Washington's birthday ~

Today is George Washington's birthday and I found this wonderful old post card honoring the first president of the United States, the Father of our country, at the Peddlers Fair last weekend. I love old post cards and this one is so pretty and in great condition for...

being over 100 years old. Check the cancellation mark stamped 1909. If only this little card could talk....I wonder if it's been tucked away in an old box or maybe in a scrapbook. I also baked a cherry cobbler last night to celebrate his day.

Mmmm, right out of the oven. This is simple, simple to make.... pour 1 large can of pie filling in a 8x8 un-greased pan, usually at this point I make a crumble or a Bisquick topping for the top, but yesterday I did something different. This is a sugar cookie topping. I used Pillsbury sugar cookie dough, in a role. Slice 9, -1/2 inch slices from the roll (save the remainder to make cookies). Place the sliced pieces evenly on the filling. Sprinkle with brown sugar, butter pieces, chopped walnuts and a tad of cinnamon.....I'm pretty generous with the sugar, walnuts and butter but you can adjust this to you liking. Bake in a pre- heated 350 oven for 10 to 12 minutes....then enjoy.
Painting is nearly finished....looking good too and things are being put back in place. Thank you for all the nice comments...they all made me smile and I always love your visits. Have a happy day....I've got to run, I hear a paint brush calling me....hugs, Linda

Yum that looks great. Thanks for coming back and trying my blog again. I had installed a snowfall code into the gadgets section and it had a bad code in it that redirected the url of my blog. Ugh, not good but I finally figured it out. Have a great week!

I'll be right over for some of your cherry cobbler...what do you mean it's all gone?? lol It sure does look delicious and easy to make. What a great find that postcard was, I love vintage postcards like that as well. I have a few Easter ones that I've recently found and will put out on display at Easter time. xoxo

Hi Linda,
