Cherries!!

I went and picked some cherries out of the neighbor's cherry tree the other day, and made cherry jam. I decided it was time for a cherry celebration on this blog.

I love cherries! Not only are they one of my very favorite fruits to eat, they are just so darn cute!

Cherries were wildly popular in the 50s, in clothing, accessories and home decor. So today there are many vintage cherry themed pieces floating around out there looking for loving homes.

Here are some of my favorites from Etsy:

Wow, they do look like real cherries. Do you know the material of them? I'm referring to the cherries in a bowl :)

Thanks for following, Estylo Jewelry! I don't know for sure about the material the cherries are made of; but they are cool, aren't they?
