Ten On Tuesday

Yesterday I read this blog post and it totally inspired me to come up with this week’s Ten on Tuesday topic: 10 Favorite Things To Bring on a Picnic. Because, really, who doesn’t love a picnic? And picnic weather is upon us, my friends! So, let’s go on a picnic.

  1. Dale. Okay, he’s not a thing but I wouldn’t want to go on a picnic without him.
  2. My Longaberger Picnic Basket. Way back, a million years ago, I fell in love with this basket but there was no way I could afford $100 to buy it back then. So I had my first Longaberger party just so I could get it. It has served me well ever since.
  3. One of my handmade quilts. They are meant to be used, to be thrown on the ground and snuggled up in and all other manners abuse. I can always make more.
  4. Fried chicken. Greasy and messy but absolutely my favorite thing to eat on a picnic.
  5. Potato salad. It goes so perfectly with #3.
  6. Brownies. The perfect picnic desert – chocolate, fabulous and portable.
  7. Beer and wine. The choice between these would depend on the time of year and time of day. Wine for late in the season and day, beer for a hot summer afternoon. I’m sure you get the idea.
  8. Berries. Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries – they are the perfect picnic snack.
  9. My mini ipod speaker. I got this to bring to Mexico and it’s perfect for portable music. And what’s a picnic without some romantic music?
  10. A book. Maybe poetry, maybe prose, something we could read aloud to each other.

I’m ready now – let’s go!

  1. Now THAT’S how to picnic! Oh how i miss picnics like that. my family’s picnincs are quite different lol! i didnt catch that it was our faves to bring and not what we usually bring, otherwise my post would have been very different lol ;D

  2. btw, you killed me with that blog link! 8^O oh my! those cakes ! i’m looking for st to take to a picnic potluck on thursday but i recently went vegan … i somehow dont think those delicious cakes over there would be appropriate lol

  3. Your picnics are story book and PERFECT. Laying on one of your quilts, eating berries, drinking wine, and watching the sky go by…that would be heaven.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful day! And the quilt…I love that. Use it and make another. You inspire me Carole!

  5. Good thing I can’t reach through the screen, I’d be appropriating that gorgeous quilt. Those colors really have the zing of a summer day, too!

  6. I love my Longaberger picnic basket too. Right now I have to hide it away so my son’s cat doesn’t scratch at it, but otherwise I even keep it out as decoration most of the time.

  7. what Kym said 🙂 I’m not a great picnic person, but this week’s topic might inspire me to try it. first up, I need a basket!
