Just Because.......

Not one normally for fancy picnic baskets, I spotted a very pretty one in a magazine a while ago.  The fabric inside looked very Libertyish but at £50 it wasn't something I really wanted to consider, so completely dismissed it.




A couple of weeks ago, I spied the same one (which actually comes from BHS) for half price and free delivery - well, the opportunity was too good to miss and it was calling out to me!


Being pink and floral was definitely attractive.






I'm anticipating putting it to good use this summer during all the warm weekends we'll have (she hopes).  Only for 2 people though, so our usual picnic ware will have to be used for the boys, not that they will care though, as long as they're fed and watered.





Long live the English summer!

I hope everyone is enjoying the half term, I'll catch up next week with lots of other bits and bobs.

Have a good weekend!

PS - Sorry if my comments have been far and few between - I've had real problems with Blogger in not letting me sign in and leave comments - bah humbug.....

Such a lovely basket - definitely one for the grown-ups - wasted on boys, they won't notice the difference!

hiya- I've had "such a time" with Blogger lately, I can't remember if I was able to come and say thank you for following my Fair blog Vintage at the Village Hall?

If I've not been able, then please excuse the tardiness- for such an un-techy person all this computer stuff has been a steep learning curve, and if I've already said it...then you're doubly thanked!

have a lovely weekend

I adore your clock and scales....what finds, think I need to be visiting the places you go!
I too am so happy with all the garden flwers right now, much nicer having your own cut flowers don't you think?!
