Marvelous: picnic blankets
We're approaching summer...quickly, I think. And with summer comes things like swimming, hiding in the air conditioning and live music (specifically at Wolf Trap, if you live locally). I'm putting together plans to see k.d. lang on July 6th, and while we do have a few standard blankets we use for lawn seating, it would be nice to have a dedicated blanket. Naturally, I was delighted when I stumbled across these blankets, ranging in price from $115 to $195, from SewnNatural. They're compact, easy to carry and come in a fantastic assortment of fabrics. I would say that the price tag was surprising, but the care and attention that goes into these blankets is impeccable and you are also, obviously, paying for marimekko fabric (in some cases). Nevertheless, you can be sure to dine in style at your next picnic, live outdoor music performance, or Screen on the Green downtown.
