I couldn't stand it any longer. I just had to find some.
I'd seen them when Kim and I went to the Scott's Antique Market.
Then, Alison @ The Polohouse showed them in her post.
Since the Hedge apples I saw at Scott's weren't very pretty, I didn't buy any and decided to look for some online.
They arrived Saturday, and I've had so much fun trying them in different places around the house.
First, I put them on my transferware platter on the chest in the entry, and added a flower arrangement.
Then I tried them in a chicken wire basket, but changed my mind. The wire seemed too sharp; and I was afraid it would cut the fruit.
Then, I put one in a copper bowl with some other natural elements.
Then, I tried them in a soup tureen on the kitchen table.
Hmmm, I think I need a bigger tureen.
You can see why they are sometimes called green brain or brain fruit.
And last, thinking ahead to Marty's Cloche Party on Nov. 1st, I put one under a cloche.
What do you think? Have I caught Hedge Apple fever?
Here's the online source for my Hedge apples:
Lavender Hill Farm. Their customer service is excellent. Tredd and Stacy were so nice when I said, "Please send pretty ones;" and they even asked if I'd like medium or large size.
And NO...they're NOT paying me to say this. :)
Let's head over to Marty's for Table Top Tuesday and see all the great posts.
Then, I'll see y'all at Kim's Savvy Southern Style for Wow Us Wednesdays, and
Sherry's @ No Minimalist Here for Open House Party Thursday.
