Show & Tell Friday for August 1

For Show & Tell today, I thought I would share just a few things from my collection of strawberry-themed items. I have strawberry wallpaper in my kitchen, and for years people have thought of me when they see strawberries and have gifted me with all manner of new, used, or handcrafted strawberry items. Here are a few of them.

This beautiful, oversized teacup was a recent addition to my collection.

Here are a few more things people have given me: a tea ball with a tiny strawberry teacup attached; a heavy glass strawberry; an antique sauce dish; 2 bone china napkin rings decorated with strawberries.

This is the top shelf of my baker's rack. There's a handmade strawberry sugar/creamer set, a little wooden crate of strawberry tea, and a metal measuring cup with a strawberry design. Don't miss the "strawberry bug" clinging to the top of the rack. He was a recent gift as well.

Hope you have enjoyed my Show & Tell for today!
