Pie Weights Box

A plastic bag of ceramic pie weights has been living in one of my kitchen drawers. Every time I open that drawer, I think about the bag breaking and the little ceramic balls rolling all over my kitchen.

I bought a small unfinished hinged wood box at Jo-Ann’s and fixed it up to hold the pie weights.

Now I’ve corralled my pie weights, I guess I’d better get busy making an actual pie.

My laptop is dying and has been doing so for months now. I’ve ordered a new computer, but it won’t arrive until the middle of February. It’s rather awkward only getting on my laptop for 10 minutes at a time which makes for some challenging blog posting and reading.

what an adorable box for your pie weights. I adore the polka dots. Oh and don't worry about blog visiting; I never _expect_ visits and am so appreciative when people do take time from their busy lives to stop in. Have a lovely week!

You made a very pretty storage box June! We missed
"National Pie Day" which was on the 23rd of this month..have to remember that for next year!

I feel your computer pain! I hope you new lap top computer will be trouble free, unlike my brand new HP one that arrived with a defective optical drive! While I wait fro a replacement part I have been unable to download new photos because I can't install my camera software, so I have been blogging about more of my wonderful summer "Wild West" trip!

Hi June! Thanks for your email - I'm very behind and I don't have a computer problem to blame it on. Just my brain computer being disorganized...

What a great idea with the box. I have TONS of pie weights from a failed Martha Stewart hand warmer project (re: they caught on fire). A box like this would be a nice place to store them. Using them is probably a good idea, too.

What a cute idea June! My pie weights came in a little jar or else I'd follow your lead. Good luck with your computer -- computer problems make me crazy!

Good luck with the new machine - that's a testy transition for sure. But it'll be SO much better in the long run. Which you already realize, I know.

And why wouldn't you have a proper box for your pie weights? You ARE Junie Moon after all. Total cuteness.

Ceramic pie weights. That sounds interesting. I almost never bake pies, but I remember the beans my mother used.

Your box is very sweet!
