A is for Apple Pie, Oil on Canvas,8x 8
The Frisbie Pie Company was founded in 1851 by William Russell Frisbie in Bridgeport, Connecticut, when he bought and renamed a branch of the Olds Baking Company. The company was located on Kossuth Street in Bridgeport's East Side, where nearby school kids tossed the plates around and yelled "Frisbie" so they wouldn't get hit by the spinning tins. The game the children played made its way to nearby college campuses.
My husband Dean loves to collect unusual memorabilia and antiques... he loves scouting out tag sales and the local flea market for hidden treasures. This particular find was from his friends Dave and Ann. So, I did some research on where it came from.
As I was gathering all the ingredients for an apple pie that I was making for my son, I feel in love with way the sunlight streamed in through the kitchen window to kiss each object with a cool winter shine.
I added the cast-iron “A” to carry on the alphabet theme I’ve been working on this month.
