picnic in the mountains

The mountains are our escape from the heat. We are fortunate that it’s only a 45 minute drive from the heat of the desert to cool, mountain fresh air.

Today we decided to have a picnic using the picnic tote I made for this book a while back. You can see my page here.

I used a vintage tea towel with some awesome forks on it. It folds in half and ties on the sides. Inside are two little pockets for utensils and a napkin. It turned out to be an nice little food tote. I see living room picnics in our future soon!

    45 minute drive to escape the heat!?! Wow that sounds nice.

    It hasn’t gotten up to 100 here in Austin yet. So, I am still counting my blessings!
