We're In The Cherries Here!

 Our area (Traverse City + 5 county region) is known for being the largest producer of tart cherries in the nation.  Right now the trucks are being loaded and running them to the processing plant. 

 I put some flowers in my cherry pitcher to brighten things up! 

 My bee skip pitcher seemed appropriate since bees pollinate the cherries!

I even found a candle that is cherry related and the runner was from April Cornell.

 I layered a white cutwork plate behind one of my metal Cherry dishes.  I got a set of four of these from Pottery Barn a few years back.  The colander is part of a set with a plate made by Golden Rabbit, Barbara Collins Gallett.

 I decided to use my two tier tray again for displaying my smaller pieces of Polish Pottery.  I bought them randomly.  Here I have a honey jar, and egg holder and a creamer.
I couldn't quite fit this honey pot with spoon so I tilted the lid.  I have a small vase, a really tiny creamer as well as a cow creamer.  

I'll leave you with a picture of my back gardens.  Ahh summertime!
Have a great weekend!


  1. Hi Liz,
    Love that you are celebrating the Cherry Season in Michigan. I just bought some cherries from the grocery store and they are so yummy. Happy Friday. Have a wonderful week.

  2. You make me want to drive up to TC from Chelsea just to buy some cherries and spit the pits out the car window! We have vacationed in Leelanau every year. You are blessed to live in the most beautiful area in our lovely state. Love your Polish pottery. I bought my first piece at the Polish festival years ago in Cedar!

  3. I personally want to thank your area for those delicious cherries, especially the pie cherries! Your summer decor and gardens are beautiful. I really like your Polish pottery, so bright and cheery! Zenda

  4. Hi Liz!!! Oh I just adore your cherry things! Funny- I was actually in the middle of eating a cherry popsicle when I sat down to cool off and read some blogs. I bet that candle smells great - I know my popcicle sure tasted yummy.

    Great to visit again. Sorry I was gone so long. Stay safe, stay well. Hugs.

  5. Those cherries from your area are wonderful, Liz! So are your pretty pieces that feature them. I love the Polish Pottery pieces as well. And of course, my favorite is your garden.

  6. Hi Liz, I love, love, love anything cherries. It is so darling and has a touch of whimsy. Your Polish pottery is gorgeous too. My husband brings back these kinds of pieces when he visits his family. They have an assortment of difference designs than they did years ago. I have a lot of Polish crystal. I also love the Polish Christmas ornaments and I was hoping I could open a store here to sell them. They are exquisite. You use these pieces in your room like a work of art.

  7. I do love the cherry and the cherry growing season. We have Door County here which is also a huge producer of the nation's cherries. I love all the Cherry related themes we find in Door County. xo Diana

  8. I just bought another five pounds of cherries about a half hour ago and hope they will last till next week when I'm back up north (heading home tomorrow for a few days!). They are my greatest, sweetest indulgence!

  9. I love cherries, but my husband goes out shopping and I've forgotten to ask him to get some. Love your cherry accessories. So cute.


Thank you for your comments! I don’t always get a chance to reply but I do read them!
