The end of strawberry season.....that means jam!

Sadly, I have picked the last of my strawberries for this year & guess what....I was inspired to put together a little strawberry jam prep board! Yet again, half way through making it, I began to question my sanity when I was making the tiny hulls to put on the chopping board! I persevered though, & here it is!



Then, as I had some resin left over, I remembered the fun I'd had making a broken marmalade jar for the lovely Jeannette http://gardenofminiatures.blogspot.com/ who makes the most stunning flowers & garden scenes, so I made a broken jar of the strawberry jam too!

Gorgeous work as usual, Linda!
I love how you often put something broken or overthrown in your sets - it's details like these that make your works so distinctively beautiful :)

That broken jar is just too sad, all that lovely strawberry goodness gone, ah yes not real but :-). Love the lemon details too. You have to have real homemade strawberry jam even in miniature form!
