pick strawberries day

Today is Pick Strawberries Day!

I wish I lived someplace where I could pick my own.  But I do live in California, and that is just the next best thing.

Heather Ross, Briar Rose Strawberries

On Mother's Day, Strawberry Shortcake was my dessert request. My own mom did the cake.  She called it a one egg cake, it was like a big biscuit.  And I loved it so much better that if it was a moist cake.  Topped with fresh strawberries and our own whipped cream. Yum!

When I wrote Allison from Cluck Cluck Sew, she responded right away with a pillowcase for our raffle.  She also sent along a few of her newest patterns!
