Day 74 – Strawberry Fields


It’s still summer here in California – its in the 90′s right now! The strawberries looked so good at the store that they were the influence today.

Besides, I get to play with red and green : )Even though we hit the low 90′s it cools off pretty quick when the sun gets behind the trees. Nothing better than a quiet dinner by the pond.

I started out with a cloth by our friend April Cornell – a small breakfast cloth full of fruit : )Since this reminds me of a watercolor I wanted to keep the dishes light and delicate as well. I started with green depression glass, the larger plates are the block design and the smaller plates have cherries imprinted on them! I topped these off with the adorable red footed bowls from the 40′s and topped THOSE off with fresh strawberries!

Berries galore!

I love the texture of my hobnail glasses so they came to play, as did some avian friends…

Avian friends : )

I found these quite wonderful rooster-and-hen salt & pepper shakers at the 127 Yard Sale in the middle of Kentucky. I bought these at the same place I found the little duck figurine in day 69. The gentleman who had these had a LOT of stuff, mostly larger and older than these little guys. He asked me what I thought of a dollar for the set and I told him I thought that was just fine : )

This was also the place I bought the ‘cemetary flags’ and just before my mom and I had the great Amish pie adventure…

You can read about the flags in day 69 but the pie adventure…that’s all for another day!

292 days to go!!

    Now that it is back to the 90′s today those looks so good I’m willing to take a trip out in this heat for some myself. Or maybe just have some Stephieberry jam instead.
