Hi-Ho Cherry O!

Hi Ho my friends!  Where or where did June go?  This month has literally flown by.

I can’t let it slip away without sharing one of the things that comes to my mind when I think of June. (Along with my sweet mother’s birthday who was named after the month).

June signifies ‘cherry pickin’.  As a teen I had a job pickin cherries.  I loved climbing to the top of the tree and getting the ‘cream of the crop’.

I’ve been pickin cherries ever since.

I use to display them during the month of June, but now they have found a permanent home in our basement farmhouse kitchen.

I pick cherry fabric and turn it into pretty things.

Cherries have even found their way into the playhouse under the stairs.

I recently was gifted this cherry item from a neighbor.  I’ve picked quite a few cherry items for my sister.  I’m running out of room, but can’t bear to leave one cherry behind. lol!

All that cherry picking tuckered me right out.  So I had to stop and eat a few that I had picked at a local fruit stand on Sat.

Just look at the size of those sweet things!

When it comes to cherries, you can pick as many as you would like.  When it comes to eating them. . .pace yourselves my friends!  lol!

Now I have a question for you ‘much more savvy bloggers’.  The other day Pinterest suggested 6 cherry themed boards for me to follow.  They were all so dang cute that I followed all 6.  Now my question is, “Once you follow a board, how do you ever see it again?”  Yes, I am a Pinterest dummy!

I know that there are a lot of cherry pickers out there.  Are you one of them?  if so, ‘Happy Pickins’!

hugs,
Jann

I love your cherry collection, Jann! So much prettiness to look at! I recently put out my cherry pieces for the kitchen, too. I don't have many pieces, I may need to go shopping in your basement kitchen. LOL

Love your Cherry collection!!

About Pinterest...get on to Pinterest and you should see your name in the upper right corner. Click on your name and you should see..."Your Profile & Pins"...click on that and it will bring up your page. Over to the right you should see where it says "Followers" and "Following". Click on "Following" and it will bring up all the boards that you are following. Hope this helped.

Such a pretty collection! You've done a great job of putting it together Jann.

Beverly Kirk said...

Wonderful....u follow your passions, with sweetness and cherry jubilee. I'm getting there in my future. The quilts were fab - did you make them?

priscilla said...

Love all your cherry dishes Jann ! You have such a wonderful way of displaying all your treasures !

Kim M said...

I adore red, so your collection (and kitchen) really caught my eye! Gorgeous! I may have to run out and get some cherries now! As far as Pinterest goes, once you follow a board, anytime the owner pins something to it, it will/ should come up in your home feed. If you want to see the specific board in its entirety again, then you need to check your following list, as Cindy suggested! Good luck!

What an impressive collection of cheery cherry pieces! I especially like the bread box.
Have a wonderful week, Jann.

My mom was a June born in June too! And now I have a 3 yr. old grand daughter who has her name, picked out by my son which impressed me and had me tear up. His wife got to pick the name of the first born- a son, and he had #2.

Lol about Pinterest. I use it so infrequently I forget how to use it! Love all your cherry themed things! Your 2nd kitchen is adorable! Our cherry festival starts here in Traverse City, MI this Saturday- runs for a whole week- and it all began because of cherries!

Susan Clayton said...

I do not think there are many things more cheering than red and white in the kitchen. I have spent some time picking strawberries and blueberries but not cherries.

Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse said...

I really love your kitchen and the cherry decor is perfect for summer!

Debra Howard said...

Oh what an awesome cherry collection you have...we have the same dishes (the ones in the dish drainer...mine were a gift from a friend...she had found them at a thrift store. No cups though with mine. They are so very fun to eat on.
