I love having this area to look at while I wash dishes, so I thought I'd share it. Yes, I'm one of those people who don't have a dishwasher. I do use paper plates ~ I know shame on me cluttering up the environment.
I've used this spot for ages to stash the stickers I take off my fruit until I do something else with them. Usually they wind up in my journal, but lately quite a few of them have turned up on postcards. I put on my postcrossing profile that I like fruit stickers and I've received them from Finland, France, Germany, Canada, Estonia and Israel. How cool is that? Maybe I'm just easily pleased, but I think it's so cool to see that oranges eaten in Finland come from Israel or kiwis eaten in Canada were grown in Italy. I never even knew that kiwis came from anywhere other than New Zealand. I really like the graphic little stickers just to look at them too. I googled and found this site, Fruit Labels - the web's first fruit label site, that prooves I'm not the only one who likes them. There is also the Flickr: orangepaper and fruit sticker group that made me aware that there were stickers on fruit in other countries.
