Late Summer Picnic

Why not gather up some fine china and cloth napkins and pack a Late Summer Picnic?

Blue and White dishes are classic and ever cheerful.

Pick a bouquet of wild flowers on the way.

Here's a vintage basket, linens, ironstone, silverware, and faux bone knives to take along.

Go find a meadow!
