Op-Shop Gold...

Basket + Boots

Today I found some op-shop gold in the form of picnic basket. I love the idea of a picnic, dining alfresco, a basket packed full of yummy food & a flask of tea to boot! When I saw this picnic basket I dreamed of the outings that we would go on together & all it needs is a good clean & a new fabric liner, I'm thinking gingham...

Hat

Even better, just as I was leaving the op-shop I spotted the cowboy hat. Ryder has to dress up as a toy Cowboy (like Woody from Toy Story I'm thinking) for his kinder Christmas concert, so with a bit of work, this hat will become part of his costume. Luckily he already has a pair of authentic cowboy boots!

Oh yes it must be gingham and red at that I'm pretty sure. I'm a sucker for gingham. And I'm forever lusting after picnic baskets...and I always throw a piece of gingham over the top of my open picnic basket.

Definitely gingham! And, I love the cowboy theme you seem to have achieved with this post. The cowboy boots with basket, and Ryder's hat. He'll make a great Woody!
