summer is ending, and i’ll certainly miss the fine picnic weather.
okay, who am i kidding. i hate heat. i hate summer. i hate bugs.
but really, who doesn’t love a picnic?? (besides mom…who has to pack it and haul it and clean up after it…grumble grumble) it certainly looks like we have the makings of a fine one here…
watermelon, lemonade, cherries, cupcakes!
you know what they say though…
--life imitates art!
or is that art imitates life?
it seems our “picnic” has sprung to life!
a picnic blanket…
with a square neck and peter pan collar? that’s a first.
but all picnic blankets have something in common…
the ants go marching one by one!
hey wait! one of those ants just isn't the same!
well, you know what i say: if life is a bowl of cherries…
make a dress to match!
you know, preferably a bubble dress with an asymetrical collar.
thirsty? how about some lemonade—or rather, lemon-mod!
keyholes running down the front, coordinating ruched headband…
bow in the back…
and big dark sunglasses are a must! jackie o would approve, don’t you think?
and no picnic is complete without the ultimate picnic food…
but one of these watermelons is not like the other!
plump and juicy—you may get splashed if you squeeze it too hard!
and the other one grows in gardens ;o)
yuck yuck snort…i’m so funny.
pintucks in the front, and matching sunhat and diaper cover for miss melon here.
unfortunately, it seems we picked a rather sour melon…
oh well. it’s all good, because we have cupcakes for dessert!
one zipper tie—his cupcakey finest!
how many cupcakes do you think i had to bribe him with to make him wear a cupcake tie? ;o)
kim, thanks for having me here to be a part of your “life’s a picnic” series!
it’s been a blast!
and to everyone else--hop on over to visit me at googiemomma sometime! i’ll be sharing more photos and details of the projects i’ve done here in the next few days.
now i just have to find someone to help me clean up this mess…
Oh my gosh. You see why I love her, right? She's funny, clever, grammatically correct, and did you see that sewing??? I can't wait to check out the details on those dresses! Which is your favorite? I seriously love the lemon. But the picnic blanket is adorable. And that watermelon??? HELLO?? But really, if I could pull off that asymmetrical-stem-collar cherry dress I would wear it daily. Thanks for the adorable picnic inspiration, Shannon!
