These caught my eye in the produce section at first glance, because of their color. I then noticed they hail from Colombia, as do my parents and many of my childhood summer memories. They are quite enjoyable. Mildy sweet and also a little tart. Like nature’s Sweattarts. They grow in a little thin husk like a tomatillo and are shaped like raspberry-sized blueberries. A fun discovery that I may not have made today if I weren’t on the lookout for something to paint.
The pint is porcelain and so pretty. I kept it to pencil in the illustration, as the simplicity of the pencil marks are true to the feel of the container.
Mint + Lemon Verbena Tea
Served hot in a beautiful antique glass post dinner service.
Porcelain Salt Shaker
This Guggenheim Museum inspired salt shaker has a pepper shaker companion. They are happy together.
Gets pretty frequent use here.
First time eating one. The flesh is kind of odd and gel like in texture, but tasty sweet!
