Monday Love: Vintage picnic and giveaway winners





Come to the park with me?

I recently stumbled over these beautiful pictures at thoughtfully simple, and thought they are just right to get our week of to a delicious start. Spring is just around the corner now, and it's time to plan and think about all the pleasures that await us, once dreaded winter packs his icy wardrobe to move on to some place else on the planet.
Lisa Pearson from Simply ... this, that & the other and her daughter (2nd photo), enjoyed  a lovely vintage picnic lunch in the park, in pretty vintage styling that combined pastel colored, girly touches and elegant elements. Be sure to check out Lisa’s photos. She has great ideas inspiration for a vintage party theme, in case you have an event coming up in spring.

The photos were taken by Lisa’s friend Kim (see her work at blubelstudio.com).

 And now, Ladies (no gentlemen around this time): 
The winners of my "Art of heart" cards are: 

Libbie from the Middlest sister
