the colour and the taste .....magic
When I was young the strawberries were in those little baskets ....
Now a days all in plastic .
The forms were much wilder than....
now they are so much alike ......
but there is nothing better these days than those lovely red beauties .....yammie .
Red is my favourite colour so ....
I will send you something now I have seen how you love those red images on all kinds of everything ...
Have a happy yummie week dearest Maria ...

How pretty. I love strawberries too.

Barb said...

Just in time - we're finished with dinner so I could have a bit of that shortcake (If only I were closer....). All you need in a tea towel with strawberries on it for cleanup. What a pretty spring table.

Strawberries are just a happy food aren't they? I brought home a few vintage cloths from my in-law's house yesterday. I haven't even really looked at them yet...but I can't wait to use them for a tablescape once things slow down a bit! Thanks for sticking with me while I'm being a bad blogger!
