The strawberries are finally finished ~ well, except for adding a rusty pin and vintage buttons to some. Most are made with antique paisley with wool tops, but I've also used vintage ticking on a couple and velveteen on a few others. These will be traveling to the Holly Hills, MI, show along with the hooked goodes.
They range in size from about 4 1/2 " to 2 3/4" and are firmly stuffed with crushed walnut shells (aka reptile bedding). The smallest berries have metal caps, the largest mother-of-pearl thread rings.
I received this in the mail yesterday. What a beautiful surprise. It came from IHeartDogs with no packing slip or paperwork of any kind. Sure wish I could thank the thoughtful person who sent it to me :)
Nature is amazing. This log is in the channel in front of DSO's condo. I find it incredible that weed seeds made their way in to the log and sprouted. At least they are not lacking water like the rest of northern Ohio.
Tomorrow's Friday ~ and payday. Life is good.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
