where quirky meets menacing

Tonight I went to a “pie party” hosted by my friend, Kim Smith, for the launch of her new book of collages called “Where Quirky Meets Menacing.” Instead of the usual cocktail party fare, she and her friend Catharine made a stunning array of homemade pies–ten different varieties (apple, banana cream, blueberry-peach, cherry, chocolate with cream cheese &┬ácandied orange, chocolate bourbon with pecans, lemon meringue, pumpkin, strawberry-rhubarb, and even a savory “doggie┬ápie” for the one canine that attended). She served the pie with a glass of either wine or whiskey–definitely a nice change of pace from the cheese and cracker scene!
