Red, Wooly Strawberries...

Bed Springs - ThreeSheepStudio.com

Whenever I have free time, I enjoy putzing 
and puttering in the ally shops and storefronts
of historic Lititz.  We have a thriving downtown 
with more quaint shops and eateries than 
you could possibly cover in one day.

While at the "Curiosity Shop",
I came upon a large basket, filled to the brim
with old bed springs.

Hmmm, what to do with them ?
Don't they look like Christmas Trees ??

I'm thinking of strawberries.
Red, ripe, wooly good strawberries 
with black glass beads for seeds...
and maybe a small dangling strawberry or two.

This week will probably be our last 
for picking strawberries.  The strawberry
fields are sadly coming to their end.
