Blueberry picking and inventive repairs

Every July I look forward to picking wild blueberries at our farm in Upstate New York and showcase the bounty in various pieces from my collection of make-do’s. Pictured first is one from this weekend, followed by examples from summers past. For more information, click on each of these previous posts: Nanking reticulated basket, c.1750, “King’s Rose” pearlware bowl, c.1850, Chinese footed dish with fort scene, c.1840, and Pierced creamware fruit basket stand, c.1790.

    Enjoy your blog, and love wild blueberries, so a double treat this time! We have wild blueberries around our house here in Prince Edward Island, so it’s nice to think of you picking them where you are as well.
