Heart MMTPT575 ~ July 30, 2019 ~ Berry Beautiful


WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE MMTPT575
Berry Beautiful

Anyone is welcome to play in the weekly Teapot Challenge - the more, the merrier! You automatically become a “TEApotter” the first time you play. Where will you find inspiration? Will it be from the teapot or from the challenge theme itself? Remember, your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not a requirement. Just have fun!

It's the last Tuesday of the month, so it's Tickle a Teapotter time again and this month we are delighted to have




Denise (card crazy) as a brand new guest hostess.

Here, in her own words, is her challenge for us:

When I was a young girl growing up in Maine, there were two elderly sisters that summered on a large tree farm next door. The farmhouse was very big and full of beautiful antiques. I remember the huge field behind their house that was just loaded with blueberries. Late summer, the sisters would hire my twin sister and me to pick blueberries. Our pay was, for every quart we picked for them, we could pick two quarts for ourselves. In our young minds, that meant blueberry pies and muffins.


A little bio about the sisters:
The older sister, Miss Constance Warren, was Head of Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville, NY from 1929-1945.

Sarah Lawrence, which was founded by William Van Duzer Lawrence of Bronxville, developed under her leadership as an institution devoted to individualized education.
Her impressive energy supported vigorous battles against racial prejudice.
“We can never build happiness on the misery of other people,” she said. “The time is past when we can be content with relieving the misery in the world. We must now focus our most constructive thinking and energy on eliminating its causes.”


So, in memory of Miss Warren and her sister, Mrs. Andrews, show us blueberries or any berry. How about pies, muffins etc.


I can’t wait to see your berry creations.

CHALLENGE: Create a card featuring blueberries or any other berry fruit.

DESTINATION STATION
This week our destination is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other!


Check out THIS NEW THREAD in the TEApot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions. Make sure to sign up by bedtime on Saturday 3rd August, as I will do the draw the next morning.


Here is Denise's card: MMTPT575 Hello


Here is a quick link to the MMTPT575 gallery


Be sure to use KEYWORD MMTPT575 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!
Do you know someone that could use some well wishes, encouragement or all around warm fuzzies? Consider nominating them as a guest of honor (a.k.a. destination station) for an upcoming tea party. Post your request HERE or send a PM to jacqueline.

My only fruit stamps were citrus fruits and strawberries. I really wanted to do blueberries, so I painted some. MMTPT575 Blueberry Birthday by casep - at Splitcoaststampers

Well, I'm counting strawberries as berry fruit even though I know botanically they're not. I had a blackberry stamp but wasn't happy with my colouring. I thought about making a pie and telling you all there were blueberries inside (my only pie stamp is a closed pie), but then I remembered this RAK image.
The consumer research company I scan my shopping for told me to classify rhubarb as "other vegetables", when I asked what fruit category to put it under. I know it's botanically a vegetable, but ???? who thinks of it as anything other than fruit.

Great challenge, Denise - thank you!

Here's my card. Unlike Sabrina, I had no idea that strawberries aren't berries... (I basically love all fruit, no matter how it's classified.)
Thanks for the fun challenge Denise.

what a fun story and challenge:


Blueberries for Sal and Jean by jkanack - at Splitcoaststampers

A strawberry is an aggregate. accessory fruit, meaning that the fleshy part is derived not from the plant's ovaries but from the receptacle that holds the ovaries. Each apparent 'seed' (achene) on the outside of the fruit is actually one of the ovaries of the flower, with a seed inside it. So we're eating ovaries....aren't you glad to know that?! I had to look it up, based on what Sabrina said. My source is Wikipedia; hope they know what they're talking about.

Here's mine - and I was so surprised with what I found out on Google! Not just blueberries, blackberries, strawberries - things called by the name berry - are in the berry family!!

So when I thought of a berry stamp, this House Mouse stamp immediately came to mind. Strawberries are my favorite fruit so I love this stamp. I have memories of summers at my grandparents farm picking strawberries - somehow my pail was always empty but my tummy was dull!

Sabrina, I loved reading about your blueberry picking as a young girl! Such great memories. I picked strawberries to earn money as a young girl. Here's my card:
