Cherry stamps



This afternoon, I carved out a small cherry stamp from a piece of eraser using
X-ACTO knife.

今日は小さなさくらんぼの形のけしごむはんこを彫ってみました。



 The size of the stamp is quite small. It measures approximately 3/4" x 3/4" (2 cm x 2 cm) in size.

今回彫ったのは小さめサイズのはんこで、約2センチx2センチの大きさです。


And I was inspired by this to carve this cherry stamp...

今日、なぜさくらんぼのはんこを彫ったかというと・・・。






Yes, fresh rainier cherries!! It's that time of the year and I love these sweet, tasty, fresh cherries from our local farmer's market.  I like to put plenty of them in a bowl and keep it handy on my working desk so that I can munch all day long:)

こちらでは今がさくらんぼの旬!私は特にこのレイニア種(ワシントン州産でしょうか?)が大好きなので、この時期はボウル一杯にさくらんぼを盛って一日中食べ続けています♪



My hubby got these cherries, peaches, strawberries, blueberries, cantaloupe, and other fresh fruits from the farmer's market this morning and I can't be happier. (He likes to go shopping every weekend to please his family like this :)

毎週末、うちの夫は早朝から近所のファーマーズマーケット(朝市)へ一人で出かけて、さまざまな果物を買ってきてくれます。 今日もこのさくらんぼのほかに、苺、メロン、ブルーベリー、白桃、などなど買ってきてくれました。



 
Hope you're enjoying your Sunday afternoon! 

皆さんも楽しい日曜日の午後をお過ごしくださいね。

Note: Starting this post, I decided to post in both English and Japanese. I know that majority of my blog readers do not read Japanese, but I figured that my mom (who lives in Japan) checks my blog regularly and I want to do this for my mom... So I hope you bear with me ;)

今日から、日英両語でブログ更新してみることにしました。 日本に住む母が当ブログをチェックしてくれているようなのですが、母は英語を読めないので、しばらくは日本語でも表示してみることにします。
