I learned something about plastic wrap while making this crust. I was watching a British cooking show, and the baker said you could line the crust with plastic wrap before filling with weights or beans. It sounded odd, but I tried it. Let's just say there was some melting going on, and I don't think we were using the same stuff. Yes, there was enough left to pull out the beans. No, it didn't melt to the crust. I'll be using parchment next time-lol.

Mom has a family mantle clock I love. It no longer works properly, but she loves the chime on it. I haven't heard the chime for years, but still love that old clock.
One of the treasures is this sewing table. The sewing machines are long gone. My grandmother was a home economics teacher in the high school during the 50s and 60s. At some point, they updated the sewing machines and got rid of the tables. My grandmother had a love of history and took one home. I love the green paint she put on it. It was originally a darker stained wood. The paper on top is foil lined wrapping paper sold as a fundraiser while she taught. It still holds up after fifty years
