 'Tis the season of Strawberries, Graduations and Bumble Bees~
I've found a few RAVE-worthy posts on all three seasonal staples to share today for Rave Reviews Wednesday!
Please take a minute to visit each spotlighted blog, try a recipe and craft or two, and let them know that you did!

Jan at Bobby Pins and Boardwalk has made a unique graduation tassel display case with instructions to create one for your own special graduate.

Thanks Jan! Such a great idea to give a hand-made commemorative of the Big Day! I have one graduation left as the proud Mom. Go Becca, Go!

I'm sure we will all be picking some strawberries, either right out of the field or in baskets freshly picked from the farmers' stand. Here are postings of two delicious recipes to try with those berries.

Karen at Living in the 513 has the recipe
for Pineapple Strawberry Pretzel Salad, Yumm!

This recipe has my favorite go-together
salty and sweet ingredients!

Or, how about some real old-fashioned
Strawberry Shortcake? Kristen at Dine and Dish
swaps the recipe with Sandy, the strawberry grower,

 Both women share links to the recipe on their posts,
visit both if you have the time.

The bumble bee has always been a favorite
design element and garden companion of mine.
One Cheap B*tch , mother of 2 boys in NY,
has printed a bumble bee image onto a
coffee stained, flour sack towel to make a mini-pillow.

I love the antique look she has created
with this motif! There is a link to
the Etsy shop offering several
other prints to create with.

I hope you have a chance to try some of these.
Wishing you all the best of the season!
