Well my friends, I’ve been at it again. Pickin cherries that is. Now normally we don’t pick cherries here in UT until June.
Some of us cherry pickers just can’t wait, and pick cherries all year long.
When I walked into our local thrift store a week and a half ago and spied these sweet cherry dishes I knew I had to pick them up and bring them home.
Rarely do I ever hit a thrift store more than once a week, little lone the next day. However that was the case. I was with my daughter, Karrah. I told her that I had went thrifting the day before and she said that she wanted to go. We stopped in and boy am I glad we did! Found four matching mugs. My sis spied them first, but knew I had the plates to match. $11 for the entire set, including the mugs.
I’ve been picking cherries for quite some time now. I started as a teenager and picked for a nearby neighbor.
I guess that’s why I can’t stop picking cherries. I’m just not satisfied until I’ve climbed to the top of the tree and picked every single one. lol! Don’t you love my sweet shelf scarf that my daughter, Kylee brought home to me from Hungary?
A lot of my cherry items I have picked at thrift stores. I found this pitcher and the S&P shakers a couple years apart. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Measuring cups and creamers.
Pitchers and teapots.
You name it, if it’s got a cherry on it I pick it!
Open my basement kitchen cupboards and cherries are bound to pop out at you.
I really didn’t need more plates because I have this set I bought at Kohls.
And this set I found at the same thrift a couple years ago. Oh yeah, a few strawberries creep in now and then. Tried picking them as a teen, but didn’t like it nearly as much as pickin cherries.
But just look at these again. How could I not pick them? Picked two sweet green dish strainers recently. One for upstairs and one for down.
Not only do I pick cherry dishes, but I have a weakness for cherry décor.
I just can’t help myself. I learned as a teen, that the more cherries I picked the more money I made. Hee-hee!
Even cherry furniture must come home with me.
And of course, If I come across cherry linens they find their way into my cart.
Not only do I love pickin cherries, but I sure do enjoy eatin them too!
Which do you do? Pick, eat, or pick and eat cherries?
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
