Often I will put up items with a strawberry theme for the beginning of summer. Sometimes I've changed to things with a seashore theme for August. In a perfect world, I guess I'd do strawberries for June, patriotic things in July, and shells and so on for August. However, this year I put strawberry items out in June and just left them in place.
I'll just share some pictures and captions now.
|The bottom shelf: The little hand painted blue strawberry dish is a particular favorite of mine.|
|Middle shelf -- love that McCoy teapot in the middle!|
|Next shelf: I love how the milk glass looks with the jadeite. Such a refreshing summery look!|
|Trying to show a closer look at that vintage notecard.|
|Here's a scan that shows it much better. I love this bit of verse and the illustration too!|
|The very top shelf; a green and white cup and two jadeite coffee cups|
