I have a love affair with pears. I think it's odd, but apparently many women do. They are just so cute and fresh, and don't scream out any season in particular. My apothecary jar was sitting so empty and lonely after the onslaught of many holidays, so I stuffed it full of pears. (Ha, full,...it would only hold 4.) It still looked sort of sad and wanting for detail. OF COURSE,... A TASSEL!!! Isn't that the answer to pretty much everything. So I made this cute chubby pear tassel and now my jar is happy and full of life.
