~*Friday Finishes*~

Hello Dear Friends! Hey! It is FRIDAY... that means time for ~*Friday Finishes*~! There is only one crafty finish to share today... but it is a sweetie!

Laura (no blog or online album) used the blooms from the ~*May Day*~ freebie to make a charming book cover. Her book is by Willa Cather, "Shadows on the Rock"... a historic novel set in 1697. What a perfect way to add more character, charm & sweetness! I haven't read the book... but this sounds like a good book to judge by the cover!

The rain seems to have finally finished here... letting the sun have a chance to shine brightly... and help our fruits & veggies grow... here are some I snapped pictures of this morning...

peaches... This will be our first year for these!

apples... These are the SWEETEST & BESTEST apples on earth! Excellent for apple fritters!

pears... My Momma LOVES the pear butter I've made with them in the past. It looks like a great crop for more this year!

plums... Tony is so excited to see these growing! He has been threatening the birds daily!

grapes... Nom Nom... grape jelly!

cherry tomatoes... Candy on my salad every day! YIPPEE!

Wishing you all warm smiles...
