Life is Just a Bowl of Berries

Okay I know ~ the song really goes ...
"Life is just a bowl of cherries", but it's not cherry season yet,
and I love this sweet little strawberry set.

I am dedicating this post to Mona.  She recently found out that she is
NOT allergic to strawberries after believing she was for many years.
Now she is eating strawberries all of the time and loving them.
Here's to you Mona!!

Pour some cream on your strawberries too.  See that
little chicken on the cream pitcher?  Have you noticed how
chickens just keep on working their way into my cottage?  Our 
attorney is building a chicken coop and is buying some chicks.
David is running out of excuses why we can't have chickens when 
one of his best buddies has given in.  Maybe there is hope for
a coop yet!

Let's party with

I know Bentley ~ Sue's blog is It's A Very Cherry World, but her
party is Rednesday and strawberries are red after all.  Bentley, when did
you start getting so technical??? 

Susan and Bentley


  1. Love this and it reminds me of a dear older friend who has a "strawberry" kitchen. Beautiful

  2. Ahh, this post reminds me of childhood at my Grandma's house. She was like the unofficial mascot for strawberries. Lol! They were absolutely everywhere in her kitchen. She loved them!

    Thanks for the memory. Happy Monday!


  3. Strawberry fields forever Susan.

  4. Reminded me of my Grandma serving up bowls of sliced strawberries that she grew in a strawberry patch out next to her root cellar. She put sugar on them and poured cream from their cow over the top of them. So delicious, so simple. Your photos were lovely. I know what I'm having for dessert tomorrow, with thoughts of Grandma

  5. Yay for Mona!!! I love strawberries and I love your sweet little setting! Thank You for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful week!
