A few weeks ago I went to Vernal , UT with my sister, Jeanne and her daughter, Shaleace.
In one of the gift shops I found this cute wrap around burlap bow. It was only $2.99 and I just knew it would look darling around one of my many glass jars. Isn’t that just ‘peachy’?
Wouldn’t you know it, It was either too small or too big for any of my jars. And I have quite a few.
Well then a few days later a package arrived from Décor Steals. Oh yes! My seltzer bottle that I had ordered. You couldn’t choose a color. Just had to take what they sent you, clear, green, or aqua. That was alright with me, but of course I was hoping for aqua.
When I opened the box much to my surprise it was aqua. Right then and there I heard angels singing. I swear there had to be some kind of divine intervention. I could picture the good Lord opening the heavens, pointing a finger down at the aqua bottle, and saying, “Send her that one”.
Now of course I am only kidding. Heaven knows that the good Lord could care less what color of seltzer bottle I got. Don’t get me wrong, I do believe he cares about the little things. I mean, I can’t tell you how many times he has helped me find my keys or started the weed eater. Yes, I pray about things like that. I also think that he has a sense of humor. He’d have to in order to put up with all of us!
Well guess who decided to try the burlap wrap on her seltzer bottle? Voila! Perfect fit! Isn’t that just ‘peachy’?
Just look at that rustic metal spout.
Even a little seltzer water inside.
Isn’t that ‘peachy’?
I imagine that all this talk about things being ‘peachy’ has got you craving some luscious peaches.
I have just the recipe to satisfy that?
My sister, Julie made this for us when she was up visiting and I’ve made it since. It is so yummy!
Mix together: 1 box (coarsely) crushed Vanilla Wafers, 1 cube melted butter, and 1/2 c. pdrd. sugar.
Sprinkle 3/4 mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. I used one just a tad smaller.
Cut fresh peaches over the top. Mine were kind of small so I used 10.
Cover with whipped cream and top with remaining crumbs. You can add a few chopped pecans into the crumbs if you’d like.
Especially pretty on one of my aqua edged Pyrex saucers.
Layers of ‘peachy’ goodness!
So easy and delicious! Now isn’t that just ‘peachy’?
