Feast your eyes on this slice of pecan pie/treat box made by Sonya Appel for the Custom Quilling newsletter. Not nearly as many calories as the real thing, but definitely just as wonderful!
Sonya is a dynamo in the quilling and stamping worlds, always coming up with inspiring ideas. Check out her blog for more information about how she went about making the pie slice.
Quick story about pecans...
My mother, who has had Alzheimer's for quite a few years, grew up in southern Virginia where pecans reign supreme - seriously, pecan pie is on the menu of nearly every restaurant.

Last autumn Mom was still able to go to the grocery store with my dad, despite not having a clear idea of who or where she was. On one shopping trip she spied the display of pecans and insisted they buy a bag for my sister and me. Old habits die hard you know... the purchase of pecans had always been an annual tradition that launched the holiday baking season, and for some reason it stayed in her mind even though so many other things had vanished. I'm thankful she's still with us this year and able to enjoy a slice of pie.
To those of you here in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving! I'll be back on Monday, gearing up for the holidays. 'Tis the season!
