It's Always Strawberry Season

Today is Monday Show and Tell at the boutiques at Make Mine Pink (, so pour yourself a nice iced tea and take a look.

It's always strawberry season at my home! June is one of my favorite months because fresh strawberries are out at the farm stands. I try to frequent the local stands and enjoy the strawberries as long as I can.

My pictures for show and tell today is of my vintage table and chairs I found at an antique shop a few years ago. that was done by a local artist. My sister and I went up to Brimfield Antique Show and I was trying to find a new table and chairs. We came home with knick knacks and paddywacks. When I least expected it, I saw this set at an antique shop near home and I had to have it. I fell in love with it. It was fun, whimsical, had strawberries that I loved, and it was a repurposed table and chairs! It even has a little silverware draw in it, so perhaps it is of the 40's or 50's. It did not match anything in my home. I didn't care. Isn't that how you feel when love hits you?

This table brings me joy each day when I see it. I have changed my kitchen/dining room to black and white toile, checks and one pinky red wall. Very striking. I love it!

Strawberry picking season is the best. We are fruit smoothie nuts at our house. What a beautiful table. Great find!

Oh Susie,
I love it, too. Strawberries are a favorite of mine, and when combined with checks, woowee, you just can't beat that. And that little touch of yellow from the bowls. You go girl!

I agree with you, Susie! I have brought in things that no one appreciates but me. But if you get up every morning and smile because of it, it belongs in your house!! I love the table and chairs, it would make me smile, too.
