Take a Seat. . .

Today I would like to invite you to take a seat. . .I want to serve you up something sweet.

Pull up a chair. . . Ready and waiting for you to sit down and enjoy a sweet fare.

Although I made the cherry seat covers two years ago these cherries always stay fresh and never go bad. . .for that, I’m sure you are glad.

We have vintage dishes to serve you up fine.  If you don’t care for vintage. . .we have others to dine.

Under my terrarium they stay free from dust.  Because serving up guests. . .you know this is a must!

What’s the sweet treat? Oh my heart. Well, nothing other than a sweet cherry tart.

Our chocolate comes in milk or white. . .either one, I’m sure will delight!

Oh my gosh Jann, that is sooo cute!... I love your little rhyme along with all of your beautiful cherry treasures... your chair covers are adorable!... and those cherry tarts... yummy!... I ate two by the way... just in case you wondered where the other one went... I simply could not decide if I wanted milk or white, so I ate one of each!... your terrarium with plates is the coolest idea!... and I LOVE all of your dishes!... okay, I have my cherry things out, but I can see I certainly need some MORE!... you would have loved my cherry orchard I lived in as a little girl... we would have been best of friends (and probably got sick eating all those cherries!)... thanks for sharing, and for the sweet tarts, xoxo Julie Marie

The chair covers are too cute! You'd fit in easy up here where I live in Traverse City (Chery capital of the world- as they say!) We have a National Cherry Festival every year! I have a terrarium that looks so much like this except it doesn't have glass! I was thinking of displaying it with dishes too1 It's like you've read my mind!
Cute cute cute!
