The Mobile Picnic... Crafty. Intelligent. Unique

Image
Where there's a will there's a way. If you can't go to the picnic, I'll bring it to you!

I could not resist. I saw this on Design Sponge. This little picnic craft is so intelligent and unique that I have to share. It involves an old briefcase and someone who loves the romance of a picnic. Who can forget the shirtless William Holden in the famous movice "Picnic?" or, Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward in "The Long Hot Summer." The idea of a picnic is far better than the actual picnic, but us romantics love to dream. Check out "The Green Space Travel Case" for your indoor/outdoor picnic park needs. : )

If you know someone who either doesn't have the time or take the time to become "one" with nature, this is perfect surprise lunch kit. No one will say it is practical, but it is a great conversation piece and will definitely bring a smile to his or her face.

If you have ugly knees .... problem solved. They are trendy, fashionable and oh so retro! Capri pants were first designed by European fashion designer, Sonja de Lennart, in 1948 and they became popular in the United States during the 1960s, largely due to the influence of
the popular television series The Dick Van Dyke Show. The character of Laura Petrie, the young housewife played by Mary Tyler Moore, caused a fashion sensation – and some mild
controversy – by wearing snug-fitting capri pants during the show's run. The pants' name originated from the Italian isle of Capri, where they were first made popular in the late 1950s and early 1960s…
