For my project I made a topper for a bag of lemon jelly beans. I used yellow gingham and the lovely lemon.





Growing up in Arizona, my grandparents had citrus trees in their yard and we had a lemon tree in ours. I loved getting fresh fruit off of the trees. We made what we called "battery acid". It was a combination of all the citrus fruits that we had picked, grapefruit, oranges, lemons... My folks have a lime tree in their yard now. I loved that juice mixture chilled over ice. I also have fond memories of when the lemons and orange trees would be in bloom. That is one of my favorites smells. When I saw this set the song "Lemon Tree" Sung by Peter Paul and Mary was going through my head. I was listening to it as I was making my project and thought I would share a link to it on youtube.




Oh and Happy 20th birthday to my daughter Johanna!!!!! I made this little candy bag for her, for her birthday.
