Let’s get healthy with our intake of Fruit and Vegetables!
Well, even if we don’t necessarily consume as much as we should, we can be reminded of these nutritious beauties through their imagery in paintings, kitchen crockery, crocheted toys and such like, and be encouraged to grab an apple instead of a biscuit.
The Christmas in July team have chosen their favourite fruit and veg items for you to decorate your homes.

I’m not a big fan of fruits and vegetables but who doesn’t like watermelon. August is always the best time to purchase it, it’s the sweetest time of the year.

My family grew muscadine grapes in the back yard of our 1920s era home when I was growing up….

Fruit on the table is a good topic to decorate the walls in the kitchen or dining room. This is a classic still life painted on 3D canvas. The additional surface on the sides of the image is painted over. This picture is like a little anecdote. I paint on order, so you can choose the image dimensions. or another similar theme.

I love growing (or at least attempting to grow) food in the garden. This year the miniature apple tree has bloomed wonderfully and in a few weeks there will be a dozen apples at their full size. There’s also been some tomatoes and strawberries, and wild strawberries that flourish every year so there’s plenty for wildlife to feast on too.

Fruits and vegetables are my favorite food group!!! So, when I found this fabric it only seemed right to make it into a cute dog bandana to show off your favorite food and quest to eat healthy. What’s even sweeter is you get to show off more than one of your favorite fruits!!

I love fruits and vegetables! And since I am Vegan…that’s a good thing! Cherries are one of my most favorite fruits, so I put together these pretty little coasters to show them off!
