One of the most beautiful tin ceiling tiles available is named Queen Anne Lace.
As soon as I read those words, I was transported back to the warm summers of my childhood growing up in the Midwest. This lovely lacy white flower flourished in the fields near my grandparents’ summer home along Illinois’ Fox River.
During the long, lazy days of July and August when school was out, my two brothers and I would wade through fields of delicate Queen Anne’s lace flowers that were almost as tall as we were on our way to pick blackberries. The purple juice stains on our clothes and the long scratches from the blackberry brambles on our skinny bare arms and legs became minor inconveniences when we tasted the freshly picked, warm, juicy, ripe berries.
When we got home, our mother carefully washed the berries that managed to make it back to the kitchen without being eaten, then sprinkled them with sugar and added a dash of ice-cold milk. Occasionally she mashed them with sugar and poured them over homemade vanilla ice cream. It was heaven on earth!
