Show & Tell Friday for June 5
For show & tell today, I thought I would show some more items from my strawberry collection. Some of them are used each and every day in our home!
This utensil crock, for example. My mother-in-law found it in the recycling area of her town dump. I cleaned it up well and have used it ever since. It's perfect in my kitchen.
This mug full of pencils and pens is useful too. The unusual handle on this mug means it is not easy to drink from, but it works fine as a pen/pencil holder.
I usually use these strawberry glasses for company. They look pretty with my old red-rimmed restaurant dinner plates.
These pretty coasters are useful also. They were a gift from one of my daughters, I think. There are four of them, but only the two designs.
I apologize for how dark this photo is. It's a basket of strawberries that's actually a salt & pepper set. The "berries" lift off and are a shaker in themselves.
This strawberry plate is very old. It was given to me by a friend years ago. She said the plate had belonged to her mother, who often used it to serve cookies.
Isn't this little berry dish cute? It too was a gift. You can just see that the sides of the dish are a basket-weave pattern.
This decorative plate is on the wall in my dining room. It was a gift from my daughter and son-in-law. I simply love it.
My in-laws gave me this strawberry dish many years ago. The top is a cover which lifts off. I suppose it would work well for serving jam.
Another dark picture; sorry. I tried three different times to get a photo of this dear little tea set. This is the clearest picture I could get. This was a gift from one of my daughters who bought it at her college bookstore as a Mother's Day gift for me. It's just adorable.
Last but not least, the top part of my baker's rack. I shared the top shelf of this before, but wanted to show the mugs just below it, as two of them have a strawberry theme.
There will be more to come, as I still have quite a few more strawberry items. But that is my simple Show & Tell for today. To see what others have shared for Show & Tell Friday, head on over to There is No Place Like Home.
Happy Show & Tell Friday!
