One day pretty soon, my husband will call and ask if I want him to bring home a flat of berries. He'll be driving through the Pontchatoula area (home of the Louisiana Strawberry Festival) and spot them for sale on the side of the road. When the prices are just right, and the berries the freshest and juiciest, he'll take some home. It's almost that season...and I can't wait. We'll make smoothies every afternoon, freeze some of the berries for later., and of course we'll have plenty for simply munching. Add a little evaporated milk and sweetener, and you have a delicious dessert! Usually the berries disappear so fast, that I miss taking a picture. Last year I snapped this:
A little Pinterest inspiration was used for the woven basket pieces (although today's berry baskets are green plastic) on which I placed a painted chipboard strawberry (Maya Road),
and a couple of flowers.
Patterned papers are from October Afternoon, Simple Stories (tickets and bingo card), and Jillibean Soup (Berry Jam label):
Other supplies include Liquid Pearls, Prima flowers, Jenni Bowlin milk cap, ribbon, thread, heart pin, ink, border punch (Martha Stewart), and letter stickers (Doodlebug, KI Memories).
Is your mouth watering yet?
