The Isle of 5th Place

Straight from Marcie's house to 5th Place!

It's industrial, it's white, it's chippy,

it fits perfectly!

And, it's loaded with sweets from sweet friends!

Did you know that if you are a Baptist in Texas that you are required to bake for those that have had surgery?

Is it only the Baptists that do this? :-)

Happy New Year!

Isn't that the eleventh commandment? ha! Hope all is well and getting 'weller'! It's a NEW YEAR! enjoy!

Darla said...

This is funny, our experience is that Baptist bake/cook for everything!!

ceekay said...

Oh yum...of course, that is what Baptists do...nothing better than a good ole fashion Pot Luck too!

Cindy said...

Yes... I believe it is imprinted on us baptist to provide food and desserts after one has been sick...well...okay we admit it..we love to cook..and share!!!I hope you are enjoying and RESTING on this New Year Day.


That's one thing I won't have to do at moms..cook..she will be swamped with food!! Yeah!!!!

Elsie said...

How nice to have someone cook
for you. I love your bar stools
for the "5th Cottage". Those are
wonderful. Hope you continue to
heal...and HAPPY NEW YEAR..:o)


Sweets for the sweet! And who wouldn't want to ferry over to that island? It looks divine in your kitchen. Home baked goods are made with loving care. It is your duty to enjoy them and feel better soon! Right? ~ Angela

I'm Methodist and we do it too, but I think that Baptists probably do it better!!!

Enjoy it while it lasts!

I am so sorry that you had to have surgery! I hope you are feeling better soon! I was wondering if you do wholesale? I have visited your booth many times at Canton. Your booth is just beautiful!
I also wanted to tell you that your 5th Place Cottage is so pretty! Thank you for sharing.

I visited your store yesterday for the first time...WOW! Incredible place. Came home a little broker, but inspired. Unfortunately, if I baked for might require additional surgery, so here is a get well wish instead. Excited to have found you and anxious to return.

LOL Those Baptists... they are always up to something!!! What do they do if they can't bake... for the patients safety? I'd hate to send someone BACK into the hospital. HAHA!!!

Hope you are feelin' better!!! LOVE the table!!!

;-) Happy Happy day 2 of the New Year!!!

I didn't know that you have been down! I will be praying for you no it isn't just Baptists! If you lived close I would for sure bake you something! I was in the shop today and bought some great finds :) I looked for you and didn't know you have been recovering from surgury! Get well friend!

Laurie Anna, just got home from a trip to Dallas and my two platters were here!!! I LOVE them!!! And, I have no idea how I missed that you were in Canton, TX! LOL! Shows I was focused on the prize! My daughter, one of my oldest and dearest friends used to meet in Canton most every month just to spend the day and visit. I am now thinking that your booth may have been on our most favorite stop list! What a small world! Amanda moved to VA and we haven't been in awhile. I miss our time there! Thank you so much for the platters!! Once again, LOVE 'EM!

Debra @ Common Ground said...

Hi Laurie Anna, so glad you found your way over. Deb's great! Hope you're feeling better, and I DO love your fabulous kitchen! Doesn't something sweet to eat solve all our problems? Oh well, at least it does help just a little! LOL, so glad you'll be there with the rest of us gals!

Stacey said...

Laurie Anna, get well very soon! As a Methodist I'd bring ya something yummy if I weren't 400miles away. :)

Honey, I think its every denomination (as I've been a few). As one of my BFF's used to say, food=love. Just consider yourself loved! :D Hope you are on the mend.
