When Life Gives You Grapes
Today’s post is not really a ‘project’ for you, but a quick note on finding inspiration and magic in everyday items… which turned into something Petal and Thorn “dropped off” for our little neighbor, recently.
Someone gave us these teeny tiny little grapes.
You can see by the first picture, just how small they are compared to a regular grape! They are called champagne grapes. They were super sweet – but a real pain in the patootie to eat! As we were sampling them – an AHA moment! These are ‘fairy small’ grapes!
We put a little bunch on a clam shell we found – it made a perfect little grape platter – and left them for our little fairy fan. (In the picture we also put a sugar cube, just to give a size reference.)
The next morning, she had returned the kindness, with itsy-bitsy little pieces of apple on the same clam shell, wrapped very thoroughly in plastic wrap, so the spiders couldn’t get them!
Her Mom told us a few days later that she ate a couple of grapes herself – shared TWO with her brother – and took the rest to school to show her friends.
Have fun and keep the magic alive!
