Cheery Cherries. . . And a Few Strawberries


When I think of the month of June…I think – cherries.

My chalkboard says it just like it is!

When I was a teenager I picked cherries for a neighbor, Mr. Dickie.

I remember that my sister, Julie and I were the ones that dared climb to the very top of the cherry trees.

I have to laugh at this because now I am a bit afraid of heights.

Sweet cherries upon my table top.


Pitcher was a D.I. find at least 5 years ago.  Found the S & P that matched at a consignment store just this year.  How lucky was that?


Last year I made the chair covers.  They are made from waffle dish towels I purchased from Ikea.


I just purchased these dishes at Kohls. I saw them and loved them but thought they were too pricey.  $9.99 for salad and 12.99 for dinner. Last week they went on sale 40% off.  I opened a charge account just so I could save an additional 20%.  A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do.


The lantern was a PB clearance item.  I love it because I can use it for so many occasions.


I bought this mini cloche at R.C.Willey for only $2. It’s the perfect place for my bird S&P shakers.



I love the dimensional cherries on this plate!


I bought the metal cherries on sale for $5.  At first I planned on painting them red.  After I got them home I decided that I liked the bit of rustic brown.


My friend, Peggy said that she remembered her grandmother having this cherry china. I purchased mine at a yard sale.



When I spied these cute little cherry napkins at k-mart I had to snatch them up.


Did you notice that I am displaying a lot of my recent yard sale finds?


Aprons…I think it’s time to bake a cherry pie.



Or at least some cherry oatmeal cookies.  I have a great recipe that I got at a farmers market in Wisconsin.  We vacationed in Door county last Oct. The area near Fish Creek was ‘Cherryland’. I loved every minute of it!

Here’s hoping that my cherries bring you cheer!

I love the cherry decor. I have been looking for the vintage table cloth that I remember my mother using on our kitchen table. with cherries on it. It was probably from the 40's or 50's. I love your chair back covers!! You're very clever.
