Out of Sight, Out of Mind...

I learned something very interesting about my kids a couple of weeks ago that I thought I would pass along to the rest of you. You see, I am a "fruit in the fridge" kind of gal. I love a crisp cold apple as well as a nice cold juicy orange, so that is where I have always put our fruit as soon as I came home from the market. Well a couple of weeks ago we had a ton of food for some reason which didn't leave me any room in the fridge for the fruit, so I just placed it all into bowls on the kitchen counter. I was shocked that within 3 days it was all gone. Apples, bananas, pears, the oranges, all of it! They went for the fruit in front of their faces instead of going into the pantry for a salty, perhaps, less healthy snack, and I found that all their little friends that are always over followed suite. And you know what else? We adults ate more of it too.



I guess the point to this post, is break out your pretty bowls and fill them with some delicious fruit and nuts and maybe the same thing will happen in your home.

Those kids are just too funny.. My son does the same thing. Your pictures look great. Now, I'm sitting here craving fruit and I have none in the house.
Hope you have a wonderful week.

I love fruit out on the table, ready to grab while on the go. :-)

I can't tell you how much this post struck me! I, too, shove all my fruit in those drawers in the fridge and out of sight, out of mind is so sadly true!
After my (oh, that's cute...like I go to the grocery store) I mean my husband's trip to Sprouts, I am so decorating my counter tops by filling up a couple of vintage bowls with fruit!

PS Just found your blog, I bought vintage dishes from you years ago when you were a Shabby Chic. ;).

Blessings,
