Celebrate National Pickle Day with Handmade Wonders

Seems there is a day for everything, so why not a day for pickles!  Today, November 14th, is National Pickle Day! In 2030 BC, preserved cucumbers were being imported from India to Tigris Valley…the first pickle!  In ancient Egypt, Cleopatra attributed her beauty to a full diet of pickles and centuries later, Napoleon believed they offered such health benefits that he offered a huge cash prize to anyone that was able to preserve them safely.  Today, millions of pickles are consumed around the world for their taste…and what better way to celebrate this star of the picnic than through handmade?


There is nothing cuter than miniatures, and Minifaefae knows how to do pickles just right!  This darling basket and canning jars of fresh fruit and veggies would be the perfect accent to almost any doll house or even displayed proudly in your home.  Each miniature is hand crafted with extreme care for detail and must be seen to be believed.
