    Pomergrantes!!!! I found a numbered print one day at a flea market and I have loved it ever since! Rich pomegranate colored loveseat in the conversation area with “Tuscany yellow” walls. Pillows on the couch that look like the inside of a pomegranate It would be inviting.

  2. Brenda Van Wie says:

    It would definitely be apples because that fruit signifies fall to me. I love fall and I live in an area that apple picking is the sign that fall is here. I have two apple trees and love watching the apples mature.

  3. Tammy Bradshaw says:

    I love raspberries! So I guess my theme would have to be mainly the color red!

  4. Laura Leigh says:

    I really can’t stand the thought of decorating the ENTIRE house in one theme. The kitchen is a good place for food-themed decorations. I like lemons for color (and the smell of a lemon tree flowering is marvelous). I like using cherries in my craft pictures because cherries and berries look good being plucked off of trees and bushes by all kinds of birds.

  5. Wehaf says:

    I would choose blueberries. It would let me use lots of blue in the decor, and the blueberry foliage and blossoms are really lovely.

  6. Wendy Moore says:

    If I had to choose a fruit or vegetable to utilize as a theme for my entire house I would have to use rainbow chard. With its brilliant rainbow hues that vary from bright gold, to a deep red-fuchsia, and a rich green, the décor possibilities would be endless. I feel as if colors bring to the surface the soul of a home and invite guests in with an amazing warmth.

  7. Patti Huggins says:

    While I am not sure that I would decorate my whole house with a fruit theme; I would certainly accent certain rooms with fruit…………Since I use lots of lemons – in my tea (that I drink constantly throughout the day) and in cooking (I love to use lemon juice with brussel sprouts); I can see using lemons to accent my kitchen or sun room.

  8. Patti Sabins says:

    I love doing my kitchen in all sorts of produce. Apple’s,oranges,pears,lemons and . Limes. I worked produce in a retail store and i love the different colours and shapes and sizes.you can do so many things.

  9. June says:

    It would have to be apples of all varieties and colors. Versatile, beautiful, and delicious to eat!

  10. Amy Morgeson says:

    I would have to say blackberries. The act of picking them in the summer with the heat at your back, despite any prickles, is almost meditative. I look forward to picking berries and preserving them all winter long.

  11. NANCY JO says:

    Hi Mary Jane,
    That is a really cute clock. I always keep lemons on the counter so this giveaway is a good fit for my kitchen. Thank YOU.

  12. Lemon. It is bright, has healing powers, rejuvenates, energy, prevents or aids in dissolving kidney stones (problems in life).

  13. Michelle Bishop says:

    I would use lemons and lily of the valley. I like the smell of both and I think that lemons are cheerful and and the lily of the valley gives a nice feminine touch to the lemons.

  14. Janice Hixon says:

    I would use blueberries because I love the color blue and in the stages of ripening the berries change from green, pink to a variety of shades of blue. We also grow a few blueberries and love them so much. They would also complement my blue willow dishes.

  15. Diana says:

    I will be redoing my kitchen with a lemon/yellow & blue theme. I would carry the lemon out through the house in planting an indoor lemon tree and splashes of lemon pillows in my bedroom and fresh lemon scent throughout the house..I would love to win this clock as it would go perfectly in the new kitchen decor

  16. Melody Torres says:

    Herbs for sure! Such beautiful and delicate, yet strong and varied!

  17. Fran Rouser says:

    I would definitely choose lemons. The sunny yellow makes me feel happy and brightens up the room. It would be like Springtime all year around!

  18. Tanya says:

    interesting q 🙂 my house would vary room to room with each a theme… strawberries, lemons and pears. Strawberries as i would love to pick wild berries as a child for jam with my mother, a tradition i continued with daughter. Lemons as we had a lemon tree in our yard in HI and i loved both the fresh fruit as well as the leaves. Pears … there is something soothing about a pear, plus i am shaped like one! 🙂

  19. Sheri Puls says:

    I think I would choose cherries. I found some cute vintage glasses several years ago with cherries on them, and also have a set of metal dishes with cherries around the rim, so why not expand the cherries theme to the test of the house? Red is a very cheerful color, too.

  20. Sheri Puls says:

    I think I would choose cherries. I found some cute vintage glasses several years ago with cherries on them, and also have a set of metal dishes with cherries around the rim, so why not expand the cherries theme to the rest of the house? Red is a very cheerful color, too.

  21. tracy beachnau says:

    I would use cherrys they are so cute and so fun

  22. Christina says:

    I would decorate with apples and lemons because I find them very country and have had to make lemonade out of lemons in my life and add the right spices to bruises from my life to make apple cider.

  23. Margaret Baillie says:

    I’ve always wanted to decorate my kitchen and dining room with grape vines and trellis to have the feeling of dining outside in a garden during the winter. It adds a Mediterranean vibe: warmth, sunshine, and a sense of relaxation and fellowship around the table.

  24. Kat S says:

    I would totally decorate with a lemon or peach or apple theme! That would be so cute!

  25. PJ says:

    Apples. I always feel better once I have had my apple a day; perhaps because I eat a lot of chocolate (dark of course).

  26. Jane Jones says:

    Funny (true) story: When I had my kidney stone, my urologist told me that some of the acids in lemons prevent kidney stones from forming. I found out I LOVE them and haven’t found anything they don’t go with. They’re such a bright, cheery color too. I’d pick lemons to decorate with. And I think I’ll start a couple of the projects in this magazine to liven up my décor.

  27. Debbie Irion says:

    I choose apples. I love the red, green and yellow combinations. Apples give me a calm wholesome feeling.

  28. Ann Simmons says:

    I love the red and greens of watermelons, and truly my house is decorated with those colors. I am a huge fan of lemon yellow and plan on using it in my daughters room because it is so bright and fresh. And there is nothing better than foods made with lemons! Thank you for a chance to win such a pretty piece!

  29. Amelia Keel says:

    I was attracted to this issue because I have long been collecting lemon decor for my kitchen and breakfast room. I got started after visiting Sorrento and Capri, Italy, which are famous for their lemons the size of grapefruit. The delicious sweet lemons and the refreshing color of the fruit seemed to make everyone there so happy, and I couldn’t help but feel the same way, which inspired me to bring some of their lemon dishes and tiles home. And it worked! My kitchen is a happy place.

  30. Robin says:

    Artichokes! I love their green and purple with their white hairy choke and how delicious! So many complimentary fruits like lemons and olives. My artichoke theme abode will inspire optimism and attract artichoke fairies, butterfly’s and dragonflys. Fun!

  31. Briana Della Bitta says:

    I would choose the lemon! Lemons are a huge part of our daily health routine. I juice lemons and add them to my water upon wakening to stimulate the liver and rid my body of toxins. Lemons are used in my soups, lemon zest in chicken dishes, lemon slices added to our water and tea! I also use lemon juice in the summer to add natural highlights to my hair, I even use it as part of a honey face mask I use for brightening. Lemons are pure sunshine and such a happy healing fruit!

  32. Debbie F. says:

    I have become a collector of Jadeite and green glassware since watching Martha Stewart on TV and from her magazine. I love the green color which reminds me of Spring and my love for the outdoors and gardening with herbs.

  33. connie says:

    Love, love, love lemons.
    Air Freshener, yellow dishtowels, crispness of the aroma, lemon pies, citrus aroma, I just love anything associated with lemons, even the tart puckery(if that’s a word) flavor. It’s just an all around clean vision. If you’re asking, no, I don’t live in a yellow house with yellow rooms and yellow furniture, but I do love lemons, their taste, and their color.

  34. Deb Ritchey says:

    I would choose lemons. I love the smell of lemons and they are a bright sunny yellow that give you an up lift just seeing it.

  35. Jodie says:

    I pick cherries. I love a pop of red…in my yellow kitchen, in my blue bedroom, in my gray living room. A pop of red brings joy to my heart! Vintage cherry, of course, like crate labels, antique dishes, etc. Just a pop here and there.

  36. Beth says:

    I’d have to pick a group, Citrus fruits in all the forms make me smile and think of spring and summer the start of a new cycle of growth.

  37. Elisabeth Perkins says:

    I would pick Cherries! 🍒
    Just becuase I love the retro 40s-50s red and blue theme with cherries.

  38. Becky Hatfield says:

    I think I would have to choose cranberries. They are a happy fruit that arrive at a happy time of year. I love the combination with apples and oranges.

  39. Jennifer Rose says:

    Grapes are my choice. There is so much in Scripture one can pair with a picture of a grape cluster. Grape clusters also come in so many colors.

  40. Jaylyn Morehouse says:

    I’m going with lavender! It smells wonderful, and purple/blue would just look nice everywhere in my home.

  41. GAIL says:

    Blueberries!!! I love the wild blueberries of UP Michigan. The colors vary so, from purple to deep blue.

  42. Mishelle says:

    Definitely a fruit salad theme because I wouldn’t want to limit the color pallet and fruit salad reminds me of summer, family and friends.

  43. Angel says:

    Lemons for the kitchen, they are a happy sunshine fruit .
    Blueberries for the living room for a calming but sweet detail.
    Apples for the remainder of the home , warm inviting and I love autumn!

  44. Connie Burgess says:

    I think I might go with peppers. They come in so many colors and herbs would be such a lovely compliment to peppers.

  45. MaJo Roof says:

    I would choose lemons to decorate the kitchen. Yellow is a happy color and lemons make me think of summer and sunshine.

  46. The cherry is my choice. Cheery cherry red is the color I’m working on in my kitchen….this year. I’ve gone with white as backdrop so I can always change accent color easily. Next actually would be lemon as yellow is my favorite color and lemon my favorite flavor.

  47. Rhonda Roberson says:

    I would have to choose Strawberries and Lemons and Pumpkins. I love both – baking, shopping, using. My living room color would be red with a touch of yellow. My kitchen would be and will be yellow – lemons in the summer and pumpkins in the fall. I’m one of those people that change my house with the seasons – curtains, decorations,etc.
