Show & Tell Friday for June 26
Here are a few more strawberry items from my collection. It's strawberry season here in northern New England, so I guess it's appropriate.
This is my most recent acquisition... a gift from my lovely friend Gail. She saw it and thought of me. Isn't it beautiful? I didn't have a strawberry clock -- or any clock, other than the ones on appliances -- in my kitchen, so this will be most useful. Another friend made me some cute fabric-covered binder clips. Two of them had a strawberry theme. These are handy in the kitchen for closing bags of chips, cereal, etc. This blurry photo (the best of two I took) depicts a strawberry-themed magnet on my fridge. These strawberry teas were all gifts over the years. One of them is packaged in a tin and one in a wooden box. I've had this strawberry hot mat for years. It's looking a bit shabby but I still love it. These crocheted potholders were made by my friend Lorraine. They are done in the afghan stitch with the strawberries cross-stitched on. Aren't these strawberry bugs the cutest things? They were a gift from my sister-in-law Betty. This is one of my very favorite strawberry items. It's a tart warmer for wax tarts. A Yankee Candle lemon tart is in place. My daughter and son-in-law gave me this some years ago, and I decided to use it on my porch table this summer. The runner beneath it is a strawberry print linen towel. 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.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
