Strawberry Stories

Sometimes we find merchants with materials we love, that are absolutely perfect. Sometimes those merchants just vanish off the face of the earth. Okay, maybe I am exaggerating. But, that is what it feels like. Then there is this gap… and a big question: “Now what?” 

Luckily, in this case, I found another fabulous merchandise with even more perfect strawberry caps! 

When I opened these, just a few hours ago, I was so pleased with what was inside the envelope. I immediately got out the strawberries awaiting their caps and finished them. 

Love them!

They have just the right mid-Victorian look in a beautiful metal. 

I have two sizes I will have available. The emery size is just over an inch tall. The walnut filled pin cushion size finishes between 1.5″ and 2″. I will be ordering more caps as soon as I sell a couple strawberries. 

By the way, strawberries are a little challenging to photograph. I will be making a little stand to change them from. In the meantime, I played with some spools/bobbins as stands. Now, I think I’ll make a little ring stand too. 

I have three pink strawberries currently available in my Etsy shop
