I just wanted to take a quick break from all the photos to share a little something I picked up last month at Anthropologie…
Aren’t they sweet? They’re ceramic versions of those berry baskets we get at the market. It is a funny thing – whenever these hit the table, we all eat more berries. Did we need them? No, but I think they’re fun and functional, and another Anthro hit. Here’s what they look like full. (Sorry for the dull photos, it has been dark and rainy here for the last few days.)
And since we’re on the topic of berries, here’s a tip I tried this week. I read it on line, and so far it seems to be working. When you bring your berries home, wash them immediately in a mixture of 10 parts of water to one part white vinegar. After a few minutes wash, rinse them, then drain them to dry before refrigerating. This is supposed to help stop that funky stuff that grows on them and ends up spoiling the bunch before you can finish them. It’s especially useful when you get the big packages from the warehouse stores, I think. No idea how long it will actually last, but so far, so good!
