Strawberry fields

Dave and I are leaving at 7 a.m. tomorrow morning to meet up with our daughter in Halifax to return Puss. We will be sad to see him go (we've had him for a month) but his owner misses him very, very much and the time has come for him to go home.

On our way back tomorrow, we are hoping to find a nice pick-your-own strawberry field. Monday is strawberry jam making day (this will be my first attempt at cooked jam, I've always made the freezer jam). Forecast is for rain (yay, my smoke signals may have worked) so if this is the case we'll find a farmer's market somewheres and buy local strawberries.

So basket and carry-all are ready. The carry-all pictured above is from Frenchy's. Although I'm sewing my own bags lately, I could'nt leave this one behind.

Thanks Joyceann. I find so many nice things at thrift stores. I try and not bring everything I see and like because my house would look like a thrift store (he, he, he).

I would really like to try my hand at strawberry jam too.
Mmmmmmmm strawberry jam.

Enjoy your trip ... hope you have nice weather. We've been getting a lot of rain here this past few days.

You always seem to find just the neatest little items at Frenchy's. Love the bag ... so pretty. B

Colleen - it's such fun stockpiling for the Winter months.

Barb - thanks for the comment on the bag. My daughter liked it so much that she kept it.

I love Frenchy's too. I go to the one here in Halifax. In fact, that is how I found your blog. I am from Moncton, where we have Guy's Frenchy's.
