The teapotters this week are doing cherries for Shari. I'm borderline in hate with cherries because I spent my early years picking the darn things. Yup, I know I've picked at least 42,000 of them!
This picture is perfect for this week's party. My neice, who was too young to pick but insisted she could do it, it got boring, she threw a fit and just sobbed her heart out. That's my dad in the pith helmet in the background.

Ha ha! What fun! Yah, after throwing a fit about being able to do it, later on in life, she was probably thinking, why did I wanna start so young? Snort! I should say....sorry I brought 42,000 not so good memories of your childhood....but I gotta feeling there are lots of good memories mixed in with all those cherries! Giggle! This is a fun, precious little card, very unique! Gives me a giggle........
I like the sentiment too...because that's what Shari is feeling right now.....

Love the photo, it brings back a lot of memories, not of picking cherries but of going to my grandpa's farm (he had a cherry orchard) eating way too many cherries and them crying all night cause we had tummy aches!

This card and photograph are adorable. Your niece standing there crying brings back a few childhood memories of my own. She reminds me so much of a picture I have of my younger sister in a similar pose. What a great idea and perfect sentiment - I'm sure Shari will love it.
