Let's Have A Picnic

Just an update: my heart and prayers go out to all those in the path of the terrible storms and tornadoes yesterday! I have family in Fort Payne, Alabama, and they were hit with tornadoes. God keep you all safe!


Hello, Dear Ones! It's almost summer so what better time to have a picnic! Come on and join me!

I have everything ready ~ tablecloth, picnic basket, food...let's go!


This is just the perfect spot under this tree! See all the green leaves and there are little pink flowers popping their most tiny heads up from the warm earth just for us. Maybe we should pick some.


It's such a gorgeous day with puffy white clouds everywhere. We could just lay on the green grass and watch the clouds roll by! Or...


we could open up the picnic basket for something to drink. Now lots of folks would pack a very nice bottle of wine in their picnic basket. But not me...no, no Nannette! Not me! :)


My drink of choice ~ Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper! I love this stuff. :)


So grab a glass and I'll pour some of this most satisfying liquid and I'll continue to set up our picnic table. Tablecloth...

Dishes...we must have dishes. I brought some fun ones I found at Pier I years ago with some fun flatware.

Doesn't this make you smile? It sure makes me smile! Just some happy little dishes!


Gotta have some corn on the cob for our picnic. Yummy looking, don't you think? I've even brought little corn holders!


Campfire!! Here's our campfire all lit and ready to cook our corn! Don't get too close - it's very hot! You just sit back down and I'll take care of the corn. You're my guest! :)


I brought a special little tiny salt and pepper set just for you! Lots of good ole salt for our corn.


Now you know how messy corn on the cob can get so here's a little napkin the color of the sky to wipe your most dewy juicy little lips with! Not that you'll get messy or anything! :)


I've been in the woods and picked some fresh blackberries for you! I love blackberries and I hope you do too! These are so juicy but just in case you want a little more sweetness here's some sugar in the tiny little blue glass with a little special sugar spoon.
Is your tiny mouth just a waterin'? Mine sure is! Look at those gorgeous blackberries! Yum!


Okay, I think it's time to get started with our picnic. You just sit there on the cool grass and I'll start roasting our corn. You know it's just pretend but hey, I don't want to grow up, do you?

I'm joining Our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday,
Our Dear Sherry at No Minimalist Here for Open House Party,
Our Dear Fawnda and Jeannine at Fireflies and Jelly beans for Show Off Your Stuff Party,


I'll leave you with a little Note Songs~

Summertime, Summertime

It's summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime summertime...

Well shut them books and throw em away
Say goodbye to dull school days
So come on and change your ways
It's summertime...

Well no more studying history
And no more reading geography
And no more dull geometry
Because it's summertime

It's time to head straight for them hills
It's time to live and have some thrills
Come along and have a ball
A regular free-for-all

Well are you comin or are you ain't
You slow-pokes are my one complaint
Hurry up before I faint
It's summertime

Well I'm so happy that I could flip
Oh how I'd love to take a trip
I'm sorry teacher but zip your lip
Because it's summertime

It's time to head straight for them hills
It's time to live and have some thrills
Come along and have a ball
A regular free for all

Well we'll go swimmin every day
No time to work just time to play
If your folks complain just say,
It's summertime

And every night we'll have a dance
Cause what's a vacation without romance
Oh man this jive has me in a trance
Because it's summertime

It's time to head straight for them hills
It's time to live and have some thrills
Come along and have a ball A regular free for all
It's summertime

It's summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime summertime sum sum summertime
Summertime

It's summertime
