Picnic Under the Pear Tree

Pear Engraving Print, Pear Watercolor, and Pear Botanical Print from
I planted a little pear tree about a decade ago when my youngest child was born.  Now that little pear tree stands full of fruit, in spite of all the spring frosts.  I think it's time we spread out our favorite checkered table cloth and had a picnic or two under this tree.
Skirt Review:  This slate blue gingham print wasn't exactly a Wow! kind of piece, but I think that's why I chose it.  Sometimes it's the understated things that end up being my favorite.  I knew that with a basic white blouse and some flats this skirt would be prefect for work or casual days with friends, and in fact I've received more compliments on it than I have on some of my really bold prints and brightly colored pieces.  I wanted to created a 1950s inspired look and added these vintage beads in cobalt to tie it altogether.  This skirt was a snug fit around the waist when I put it on first thing in the morning.  By the end of the day it felt comfortable.  I don't know if it stretched a little bit or I just go used to it.  It has very nice, deep pockets, but is unlined, so I had to wear a white slip with it.  The best part of this post is that right now you can take this little beauty home for 20% off when you use the code FIREWORK at checkout.  The sale runs through 7/4.
