"Millions of peaches/peaches for free/millions of peaches/peaches for me."  So sang the Presidents of the United States of America some fifteen years ago.  Those loopy lyrics stuck with me, my internal soundtrack playing on cue as I crafted this super stylized Fabulous Felt Orchard Barrette.  (That red and yellow splotchy mass on the right is meant to be a nectarine, by the way, followed by the somewhat more recognizable plum and peach.)  That said, I'm not going to plumb the depths of this tune's possible deeper meanings, opting instead to take it at its face value as a celebration of produce.  As for the barrette, I'm as pleased as punch to add it to my bushel of baubles.  Stand by for more farmstand favorites.

I'd never heard that song before, but it is sort of catchy isn't it! Who was giving away all of those peaches, I wonder...

I love your new barrette! I can't think of a better way to celebrate spring and summer than by paying tribute to fruit-free or not;)

Very cute, and I love the outfit you put together!!
