gather ye berries ...
Berry season is beginning to wind-down and I'm trying to make the best of the last of the season. As you may have guessed, it's not just the produce I enjoy.
I have always liked the simple containers commonly found at farm stands. Sweet as-is in their no-nonsense functionality, I decided it might be fun to print-out words on patterned paper and adhere them to the containers. I even gave one basket a coat of pink paint.
A quick stroke of glue stick to affix the paper to the basket followed by a coat of decoupage medium as a sealant was all it took to take these containers from the cart ...
to the table as holders of muffins and napkins.
What better way to celebrate the beginning of the end of summer ...
To make these muffins:
Corn muffin mix + fresh blueberries and raspberries
