We’re Going on a Picnic

by kmcopeland

A friend of ours recently bought a 1960s Beetle, and I have to say we’re a bit jealous. Especially when said friend talks about all of the trips he plans on taking to the countryside once the weather gets nicer. He invited us for a spring picnic when it gets warmer, and I’m more than a little excited. Not that you could tell or anything. I am slightly obsessed with owning that vintage picnic basket. Look at it, it even has places for wine bottles. (I tried to be kosher and include a thermos and water bottle in my post, but I think we all know the basket would primarily tote bottles of vino.)

In other news, another person placed a higher bid on the apartment we’re after so we had to counter. This whole process is really anxiety inducing, which is even more justification for me owning that picnic basket…and two bottles of wine.

Friday’s Fancy

This Friday’s Fancy is all about bedrooms. In light of the fact that we don’t so much have a bedroom as a bed nook in our one bedroom apartment, my thoughts keep drifting to how nice it would be to have a proper bedroom that is relaxing and cozy. I would post a picture of the current state of things, but frankly, I’m too embarrassed. That and it would probably depress you.  I would much rather lust after pretty bedrooms online and pretend that I’m actually going to sleep there tonight.

All of these bedrooms caught my eye for one reason or another – like the dope birdy duvet, amazeballs bedside table and chair, and pretty wallpaper and  above. Here’s some more eye candy for your Friday viewing pleasure:

The gigantour mirror (1), funky bedside table (2) and pops of blue (3), my color of the moment.

The masculinity of the first room, art headboard in the second and fun green chair in the third.

Typical Scandinavian simplicity, my ideal of cozy slash I want to sleep here all day, and just plain ol’ pretty girliness.

Mainly, though, I would lust after anything that had a door (meaning it was not part of any other room) and a bed that didn’t also function as a couch.
