Craft share - Summer strawberries

Of late with the wondeful arrival of summer (it snowed this week here in Britain!! I know!) when it wants to be sunny, I find myself when walking home from work picking up a suprisingly cheap punnet of strawberries from my local greengrocers to take home and enjoy.
So in hommage to the wonderfu strawberry, here is this week' craft share!

Crochet Strawberry Slippers- Kawaii- Red and Green- Women Slippers

How sweet are these?!
I love the style and the dainty little flower on the side! I wouldn't be able to stop staring at my tootsies!
It is worth looking through Gitana's shop as some of the crochet goodies there are so beautiful and quirky!  Loving the burger and waffle cowls! pepperoni pizza mitts anyone?

Strawberries and Cream Mint Lolita JSK Dress ON SALE

One could see themselves wearing this to the park, carrying a picnic basket, no?

Adopt a Strawberry Plush - Profits to the CCFA
Adopt a strawberry
Can you resist these little guys cute little faces?
You can adopt one! But it doesn't end there!...

"All profits are donated to the CCFA (Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America). They work hard to find cures for chronic digestive diseases. As someone who actively suffers from Crohn's disease I know how devastating these diseases can be. Crohn's takes away from my life as student, artist, daughter, and friend. I very much thank anyone who aids in the battle to end Crohn's and Colitits. With everyone's support, I know we can accomplish great things. "

How so very awesome! And for such a wonderful cause! Shari, You are amazing! 

I like you to meet Pouchy...
A Strawberry Named Pouchy - Drawstring pouch

"Suggestions for what you may want to carry in this pouch: 1 large grapefruit, butterscotch buttons, dog treats, scrabble pieces, 2 plums...the possibilities are endless!"

Strawberry bracelet
 these individual beads are flameworked glass strawberries! How sweet are they?
The shine of the glass works so well with the texture of the strawberries don't they?
This bracelet is a real testament to the amount of skill and effort that's gone into making it....and it looks so succulent!
 Do check out Lucie's shop for some wonderful glasswork pieces that are just so sweet and holds plenty of character! Loving the Life in the Country Bracelet!
