Sunday escape for the squirrels.......












Winter picnic time.....
After days of grey, cold and rainy days the sun came out on Sunday.
The sky was beautiful blue and there was that lovely crisp feeling in the air.
We decided to pack the picnic basket and go for a drive.
On the way we stopped at a garage sale and I brought the two fabulous cookie tins, I just love the true  kiwiana piece with the little maori girl on it.
Stopping by a river was the perfect stop to eat and explore.
Yummy toasties and cookies.
Mr Warren wore the great sherlock style hat I found at the budget boutique a few weeks ago.
Look at those little squirrels with stuffed wee cheeks.
I hope all you sweet peas had a scrummy weekend


love v

  15. I love your picnic! In fact, I love winter picnics. Everything is just right - cozy, yummy, bundling, cold breath with hot drinks. I can almost feel that crispy day where sound travels for miles and miles. Nibble. Beautiful.

  17. Some how it has been a while since I have caught up on my blogs. Wow so your house is on the market! So where to next? Will you stay in Christchurch? Ooo and I love your winter picnic. It's actually something I would never have thought to do, but I love it :).

  18. I love that cup that Warren is drinking from, but I have to say that his hat looks less Deerstalker and more like the headgear my father used to wear in Antarctica!
    Whatever, you both look like there is nothing better in the world than a winter picnic by the river :-)
