Summertime = Snow Cones and Popsicles

The beginning of summer always brings to mind two things....

Snow Cones and Popsicles!

And the thought of those two yummy delights make me go backward in time for some special memories...

Snow Cones....
When Noli was about four, I took her to a local snow cone stand for her first taste.... and she decided that we should go to all the snow cone stands so she could sample all the different flavors. I, of course (being a lover of snow cones) agreed. I think we hit three or four places over that summer (I didn't want her to go crazy or I'd be in mucho trouble with the mama LOL!)



Noli ~ My favorite is the blue one!

Me ~ Why is that?

Noli ~ 'Cause it turns my lips and tongue blue!


Popsicles...
Now we go waaay back in time to when I was about four or five or so (waaaay back....)

When summer arrived the ice cream man started his rounds, but he didn't have a truck.... he had a bicycle contraption that was part bicycle and part freezer. He'd peddle down the street and ring his bell and all the kids would run out to get frozen goodies from him.


I always got red popsicles or sometimes fudgsicles. 

The popsicles were the double kind and, because I loved him soooo much :) I'd break it in two and only eat half of that popsicle.... and leave the other half for my big brother. 

I never did know if he actually ate his half, but somebody must have because I would check and it was always gone!

Sometimes I got a fudgsicle but big brother didn't get any of that.... hehe.



These two will eventually wind up in my shop, of course ....

The memories of  these two frozen goodies prompted me to make these crochet versions, and that fit right into the Blogging Business Artisans June challenge -- to create something that celebrates the start of summer. This challenge was brought to us by Natasha of Stalking the Wild Snark


Now, don't you think it's time to stock up on snow cones and popsicles?!!

Mmmmmm, yes to both of these. I live in a neighborhood with a lot of kids and the ice cream truck rolls through all the time. :-)

I remember waiting for the ice cream truck! Loved it! Since I'm an only child I never had to break my Popsicle in two! :)

How cute! I am a fudgsicle person myself and they do remind me of my childhood! Now a days I keep popsicles in the garage freezer for Amara and her friends put pushups in the kitchen freezer for Amara for dessert! I can just imagine Noli with a blue tongue and lips!

I used to love snow cones. Okay - I still do! I had a pretty nice home snow cone machine for a few years in high school and college, but I wore it out!

These are all such great memories--I remember the ice cream truck that went through our neighborhood, too. The crocheted popsicle and cone will make great additions to your play food collection in your shop.
