The sweet spot of summer is here. The sun is staking its claim of the sky, claiming space from the moon (though, of course, the moon will get her turn too) and lengthening our days and giving us luxuriously stretched out evenings.
We are so grateful for our picnic blanket customers – from San Francisco and Manhattan to small town Oregon and all over Australia and Europe. We have a collection of vintage Marimekko fabrics we haven’t yet had time to dip into this year, but we did manage to make some new extra-large scale gingham cotton ones up and they are in the shop. A few are still ready to ship.
And that fabulous organic fork t-shirt? That’s hand screen printed with eco friendly inks by Xenotees & available on Etsy too.
And those donuts? Handmade from Suzy Q’s Donuts in Hintonburg. I’m told they are almost too good (yup, still doing a largely grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free, soy-free diet and the little guy, who is doing it alongside me, seems to be doing amazingly well these days so donuts will wait .
This is an extra, extra alrge scale gingham print in black and white. I love big gingham checks.
This is an optical-brightener-free polka dotted cotton picnic blanket with matching eco-friendly, water-based coated cotton on the underside in the same polka dot print. Rockabilly meets optical illusion.
And our traditional and ever-so-popular red gingham, paired with the non toxic waterproof cotton I mentioned above. Reversible and guaranteed to make any picnic food look delicious.
And for July 4th or anytime, really – a huge picnic blanket with vintage striped cotton in red, white and blue.
If you happen to pick up the July edition of Style at Home Magazine you can see us featured in the Goods Section where they put together a few of their Canadian Etsy favorites. What a thrill!! That’s our big green trees picnic blanket you see on the top, left (below).
