It was wonderful to feel warmth on my skin today- to be able to wear a short sleeve top and skirt. It has been a while *sigh*. Maybe Spring might be finally pushing it's way through?
To be honest, I am seasonal - not necessarily with clothing, but with FOOD! When our veggie patch is working well, I love growing and eating cool season veggies - broccoli, peas, kale. However, when there is a sniff of warmth, my body starts to look forward to warm season veggies/fruits, and there are heaps - tomatoes, zucchinis, pumpkins, cucumbers, and also the fruits - apricots, strawberries and peaches. Yum! Nothing is more delicious than a freshly picked, flavoursome, home grown apricot.
At work, we read the book "The Pear in the Pear Tree" by Pamela Allen. It is a funny book about a pair of children and their desire and determination to pick a juicy pear off of the tree. It is also a terrific book to emphasise rhyme. The children that I worked with got themselves into pairs, thought of a pair of rhyming words, one drew a picture of one, the other drew a picture of the other and altogether we made up "The Book of Rhyme". Today, we found facts about pears and we thought of words to describe pears - what they look like, what they feel like, what they taste like and what they smell like, hence we had some juicy, tasty fun today... hence, my inspiration for this week are...pears!
Pear Cuff links by "Lilypad Designs"
Isn't this pair of pears adorable? I love the cute, smiley faces on the pear fabric. What a great idea to make this pair into a set of playful and fun cuff links!
Pear Brooch by 'Elle's Tea Party'
This brooch looks good enough to eat. I love the look of a 'slice' of pear, with two little seeds in the core. A unique brooch.
Pear Skirt by 'JIGsew'
How sweet!I love the detailed pears on the fabric. I also love how the pink belt picks up the same coloured pink flowers in the skirt fabric. I love the gathered high top waist. The great news is that this skirt is sold with a matching headband...
Lots of sweet, pear inspired items!
Thanks for viewing!
