|Lovely Saturday for a picnic.|
It has been straight cloudy, raining, thundering, and lightning here since the tail end of June. Once the sun decided to bless today with radiant beauty, I couldn't stay inside reading books and stroking kitty fur a moment longer. A picnic was definitely in order. A little peanut butter and jam sandwich with fruit and fashionable thrift store finds amongst a soft, chilled breeze, summer warmth, and the sparkling magic that always awaits any visitor to nature's picturesque pond.
The day couldn't have been any better. So wonderful...
|Preparing a "never a dull moment" sandwich featuring Peanut Butter & Company's Dark Chocolate Dreams and raspberry preserves plus fresh raspberries. Side dish is mixed fruit of organic strawberries & grapes.|
|The awesome vintage rubber duck cloth was from the Village Discount Outlet for only $1 and too adorable to pass up! The basket is from Michaels and they always have huge 50% or more basket sales, especially in the summer! This was $5!|
|One must always be fashionable for a picnic! Sheer Forever 21 blouse from the Goodwill for $1.49 and cat print vintage style below knee length dress for abut $30 from an eBay shop. Purple ribbon is from Michaels.|
|Turquoise peacock tights for $7 from Target's clearance rack & American Eagle black flats for $7 from Clash Consignment- totally comfy footwear for the 2 1/2 mile journey.|
|The pond couldn't have looked any more magical.|
|Remember this bag? The $10 Strawberry Driving tote bag from Twist N' Shout Records in Denver? An adorable match to the cat print dress right?|
|Writing, snacking, and playing with my foam RTA bus.|
|A quiet leaf randomly fell and requested to be taken home. I obliged.|
|Shadow mischief on the tree.|
|White duck spotted waddling by!|
|Ah.... that summer pond life. Nothing could be sweeter than this.|
