Etsy Update - New Miniature Strawberry Tart and Cheesecake

It may well be the SIMP show in four day's time and the preparations for it are keeping us really busy, but that's not stopping us from popping a couple of new pieces on Etsy for you!

We'll do a SIMP preview post in the next couple of days (or check out our Twitter, Flickr or Instagram feeds now), but while we're working on that, here are today's new miniatures...

It's the time of year when our small wild strawberry patch decides to yield a little bit of summery fruit to say thank you for having neglected them for the last 12 months.  They are very hardy.  We picked the original ones in the grounds of the beautiful chateau at Chantilly about 8 years ago and they've been with us since.

So every summer we have just enough tiny strawberries to cover the bottom of a very small bowl...two, maybe three times throughout the summer.  Livin' the high life.....

This year's huge wild strawberry harvest...
All that to say that today's miniatures have a strawberry theme!

The first piece is a strawberry tart.  This piece would look great in a busy kitchen.

The second piece is a strawberry cheesecake (a piece of which I would kill for right now...)

You can find these new pieces in our Etsy store right now!
