lets make a fort!

a few weeks ago, a friend shared her desire to grab a few bottles of wine, make a fort in her living room and escape for awhile...and of course I have been wanting to do that all week long!

Wouldn't it be wonderful to live here

i may have to blame bloggers

well, not completely -- but posts on Cup of Jo ( this one and this one) and Apartment Therapy have all caught the summer picnic bug....

 I understand why summer makes people think of picnics, however- here in New Orleans- it always seems to rain right at prime picnic time!   
Wouldn't it be so lovely for a picnic..

So, when One kings lane (message me for an invite) had this.....

i had to get it!

So excited, even if it has to be indoor picnics. 

Happy Fourth!
