What’s that I see there in the sky?….a burning ball of yellow! My gosh summer is here (finally). Daydreaming of hazy evening picnics is slowly turning into a reality.
Here’s my vintage picnic wish list and essential items
1. The Hamper
I think this beautiful hamper speaks for itself.
2. The Dress
Beautiful glamourous dresses by http://www.ohmyhoney.co.uk. I’ve been dreaming about getting my wobbly bits into one of these for to long!…. Hurry up payday.
What’s more classic than homemade scones and strawberry jam. My delightfully yummy scone recipe is on a previous post. Here’s an easy peasy jam recipe:
– 400g strawberries cut in half
– 450g caster sugar
– 4 tsp fresh lemon juice
Place the strawberries and sugar into a medium size saucepan. Bring to a simmer stirring frequently. Continue to simmer for 1 hr stirring occasionally. Once thick or to the constancy you like add the lemon juice and pour into sterilised jam jars.
This wonderful website has some fabulous vintage crockery to make your picnic extra special.
I’m over come with excitement…..Vintage picnic organising starts now. Anybody like to come?!
