When I first spotted this unique wood crate at a local antiques shop, I wasn’t sure what it was. On closer inspection, I found it was full of old berry wooden berry boxes! It wasn’t too hard to figure out that it was a berry crate used by farmers to transport their precious cargo to market!

I tried to reinvent the wheel and make my own design for the lid of this berry crate, but in the end, decided to go with something close to the original. It’s not the exact same font as Marian’s, but it has the same feel and I love it! In the very small chance that Marian would find her way to my lowly newbie blog, I would like to say, “Thank You! Love your style and the inspiration you generously share!” I made a stencil using my Silhouette Cameo.
