Creative Herb Gardening

15 Sep

Okay, last post from Electric Picnic but I thought this little garden was adorable.  I’m not entirely positive but I think the objective was to promote the GIY movement.  At any rate, it was cute and made me want to go find an old wheel barrel or maybe a kids’ bed to load up with herbs. 

I love this kid

But seriously, how could you not?  This is Casper at Electric Picnic.  He’s such a good festival baby.  He’s been to quite a few (the family friendly ones) and he’s a natural.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

As mentioned before, he’s my housemate for a couple of months and he’s a good housemate, too – he loves my dog and says  “Niiiice” to her as he (somewhat) strokes her gently; he enjoys giving her the food he’s supposed to eat; he generously gives kisses and hugs before going “night night” — I could get used to this! 

Just thought I’d share a few photos of Casper from our day out at Electric Picnic. I love, love, love the fact that Casper and his cousin, Mia, were trying to takeover the stage during our friend, Erin Fornoff’s poetry reading at the Brownbread Mixtape performance.  Hilarious. 

Bunting at Electric Picnic

12 Sep

Bunting is just another one of those things that I always seem to feature and write about here — it’s just so cute, no?  Well, apparently, a lot of the folks behind Electric Picnic agree because many of the tents and stalls featured bunting.  The crushed can bunting is very clever.  Again, great inspiration for an outdoor party, event or wedding!  Here’s a few shots.
