More jamming done today. Strawberry-Rhubarb and Raspberry-Blackberry.  All were grown local at purchased at farmer’s market.  The blackberries in particular were picked by a local forager who went to some clear cuts in the Olympic Peninsula to pick native berries.  (Those big ones you see by the freeways are Himalayan and an invasive species.)  I was so impressed with his wares and effort to obtain them, I bought some to add to my raspberry jam!

It was relaxing and it reminded me that

fall is right around the corner!

Plus I got to use my new typewriter!  The labels were made with some cardstock scraps I had, stamps that I have around the house and the my typewriter, thrifted last week for $20!  It’s in excellent condition and a cute green color!  I’m in love!


A Remington Riter - Quiet Riter, circ. 1950's. Fairly common, but very cute!

Even Stinky Pete approves!
