Friday Favorites – Fruit

One of my favorite things about summer is the abundance of fresh fruit available.  I ate so many strawberries the summer I was pregnant with my daughter, she’s lucky she didn’t turn out red and covered in seeds.  When we moved to the house we live in now I was almost giddy to find several mature blueberry bushes.  We added a few raspberries, an Asian pear tree and apples.  We also have wild blackberries, whether we want them or not, and wild huckleberries.  Yep, I sorta like fruit, just a little bit.

I’ve been admiring this Porcelain Berry Basket from Etsy seller forestclearing for at least a year.  How cute would this be sitting around with fruit in it?

My daughter has a thing for pineapples, but she’s going to have to learn to crochet if she wants this Pineapple Fridge Magnet from Pottage Publishing.

These Lightbulb Pears from Todd & Lindsey Creating are a brilliant way to recycle old light bulbs.  I especially like the stick stem.

This Watermelon Skirt from Sun Scholars looks pretty simple, not to mention adorable.

Speaking of watermelon, have you ever heard of watermelon jelly?  I hadn’t, which is why I’m intrigued by this Watermelon Jelly recipe from Food in Jars.

I’m filing this idea for Fruit Balloons from Oh, Happy Day under “Why didn’t I think of that?”

Everybody covers other fruit with chocolate, but Heather’s French Press went with Chocolate Filled Raspberries instead.  Sign me up.

I can’t say I’ve ever gone out of my way for marmalade, but for some reason this Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate Marmalade from Simple Bites sounds delicious.

I’ve actually made Fruit Salsa with Baked Cinnamon Chips before, similar to this recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything, and I could pretty much replace any meal with it.

And, just because it’s Friday, I leave you with Strawberry and Cream Elves from Weelicious.  Otherwise known on my Pinterest board as Ninja Strawberries.
