Roll out the red and white checkered blanket and let’s have a picnic! July is National Picnic Month and we’re celebrating with all of our friends. Picnics can take place anywhere and be as extravagant or as simple as desired. Have a picnic at the park, the beach or even your own backyard. Simple fare like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies will do or you can opt for something slightly more lavish like cucumber tea sandwiches and glazed lemon butter cookies. All you need is a beautiful day, sustenance of some sort and someone special to share your picnic.
Picnics remind us of childhood days spent outdoors, tea parties under trees and adventures with friends real and imagined. Our perfect picnic would include tea poured from a kettle into a tiny cup and saucer like the ones on our Afternoon Tea Bell Pendant. We would share frosted cupcakes baked with the ones we love with our friend the Ladybug. The Teddy Bear is too busy dreaming of honey and the beehive overhead. Later, we will all chase little dragonflies who perform acrobatics to entertain us.
We hope the bells of our Picnic Collection will remind you of the good things in life—like delicious moments shared with friends and family at a summer picnic!
As girls, we played tea party with our moms, sisters, friends, and our favorite stuffed animals. Now we enjoy sitting and sipping our favorite tea and sharing all those fond memories with our dearest friends. With a kettle bail and cup and saucer clapper, this bell reminds us of the tea enthusiasts we’ve always been.
The cupcake is one of our favorite sweets, baked in kitchens with the ones we love. A treasured memory for all to share: for a hug and a kiss you will surely miss, but the joy will last a lifetime. With the bail as a cupcake pan and a spatula as the clapper, a cupcake to draw the eye will put a smile on your face and a memory in your heart.
“Yes if Teddy Bears ruled the world, what a wonderful life this would be, our hearts would always be happy, as we sat by the old oak tree” by Janis Miner. Our Teddy Bell shows Teddies sitting in the shade under an oak tree with their heads full of dreams of what is in the beehive over their heads and the honey in the honey pot clapper.
The red sheath with the black dots that cover and protect the wings of the ladybug, symbolize protecting what is most valuable to you. With wings you can fly free, free to create the dreams that are meant for you alone to realize and make them come true.
When the brilliantly jeweled dragonfly appears we know that summer has arrived. With tiny wings, the dragonfly darts above the water, delighting us with its playful acrobatics. Suspended from the dragonfly bail, one of God’s most delightful creations surrounds this bell, while a tree frog clings to the clapper.
