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.

Happy Show & Tell Friday!


  1. You have a cute collection. It's the little things that give a homey touch and make us smile. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I have a friend who lives in Nova Scotia (blueberry country) and she collects strawberries also. She has bright red hair and everything around the kitchen is red with berries. When you post all these pictures it reminds me of her and I pray for her.


  3. Hi Jane and Mrs. Doug,

    Thanks for visiting to see some of my strawberry collection! I am glad you stopped by and that you enjoyed the strawberry things.

    Mrs. Doug, that is so neat about your friend! How nice that my strawberries served as a prayer reminder for you.

    God bless.
