Okay everyone, you already know that I’m about to get super excited because picnic, but to add to all that ~ Erstwilder ! Pinup! Picnic! Brooches!! *✧･ﾟ:* \(◕▽◕✿)/ *:ﾟ･✧*
When I saw all the gorgeous designs Erstwilder were releasing in their new Pinup Picnic novelty brooch range, you must know that I had the most agonizing time trying to decide which ones I was going to pick! They are all stunning, but in the end I had to narrow it down to three.
The Rosy Lee Teapot was first on my list, as tea is always an absolute must for me. You probably won’t be surprised to learn that I have a rather large collection of teapots, including this darling little stacking bunny pot “Tea for Two”. And what better addition to my teapot collection than a pink pot and cup brooch with dainty red hearts? The tea lover in me says “Yes please!” (♡ヮ♡) ∠❤!
But where would you be at a picnic if you didn’t have cupcakes?? So the delightful Cherry on Top brooch is modelled by Miss Loulabelle, a vintage loving gal that I met last year. We finally got the opportunity to hang out and spend some time together last weekend while doing this shoot, and I was so happy to have that chance! I also couldn’t go past a pretty pinup miss ~ and the self-titled Pinup Picnic lady is the perfect complement to round out a delicious selection of Erstwilder sweet treats!
Miss Loulabelle and I had such a grand time with our little picnic for two ~ I swear, half the fun is in the getting ready for these sorts of events ~ don’t you just love a chance to do your girl thing with another friend? And while our conversation revolved mostly around petticoats, make up and the like, I do seem to recall a certain helpless lapse into giggles over some silly lines about Mr. Darcy coming up out of the pond in his white shirt, all while taking photos?
Thank you Colin Firth. *ahem*
When it all comes down to it, what I really loved about this fun time is chance to make new friends. I think merry get-togethers over a pot of tea, or a good old fashioned bottle of Coke, are really a lovely way to spend time with your friends, new or old, and certainly the best for a summer evening out!

Have you seen the Pinup Picnic range yet? Which is your favourite ~ if you can pick! ~ of the bunch? Or better yet ~ where would you hang out with your friends if you went on a picnic. Beach? Pool? At a park perhaps?
