Perfect Vintage Finds for a Picnic.....

You know I've always got some lovely finds tucked away to show you all.

I'm utterly smitten over this wool blanket in a rainbow of colours I picked up a few weeks ago. It's colours are just perfect for our living area. What I call a beautiful compliment to our decorating efforts, a yellowy/mustard feature wall in our lounge room. 


The re-paint of the house has slowly started to take shape. This weekend the Ben has started to attack our bedroom and lounge room. Remember I told you all I didn't want this happening when I was heavily pregnant? Oh well what can I do, at least it's started to happen now. Better now than me still nagging him in several months, but it seriously isn't his fault we've just been so busy that blocks of time at home have been limited.

My other find as you can see is the picnic basket, isn't she lovely? They just don't make picnic baskets like this anymore do they? Practical and useful and by practical I mean somewhere to stuff your bottle of wine or two with your bevy of antipasto treats inside the basket already and waiting for a lazy afternoon in the sun upon a blanket, perhaps like the gorgeous wool rainbow blanket above.

In sad blanket breaking news, it dawned on me yesterday afternoon that I may be allergic to the rainbow blanket. It must have mohair in the blend because I went nuts with symptoms after popping it over Cohen for an afternoon snuggle. I must of rubbed my eyes and half an hour later I thought I was coming down with the worlds most rapid attacking flu. I don't know what fate now waits the blanket, unless I remember to wash my hands after touching it each time.....ugh!
