Poppies and a Picnic: Father’s Day Weekend






I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off Father’s Day weekend than with this lovely Summery poppy editorial from Ditte Isager. A picnic on the ocean with Dad is a splendid idea, don’t you think?  Maybe serenading him with his favourite song while strumming a guitar…? What are your plans for this Father’s Day weekend my friends? XX

  6. GOOD MORNING GORGEOUS! THank you for reminding me that this is Father's Day weekend; I totally forget....maybe because I lost my mom on that day and it just kind fizzled away from memory...but YESTERDAY WAS MY last workshop and NOW I AM FREE! I am loving just puttering about the house and plotting my next decorating move or creative endeavor! I think I will try to muster up my blog post around my dad...

    HAPPY DAY dear friend! Anita
