And here are our pictures:

Vintage tray with picnic items and basket
Vintage luggage turned picnic basket

If you notice... a few items are almost exactly the same such as the tray in the first picture and the red train case (vintage luggage) in the second picture.  And the rest of the items gives the same feel as the Romantic Homes pictures.  So go ahead and venture out and try to recreate a look that you have seen.  
P.S.....both of these would make great gifts!

Bring in a magazine with something you would like to recreate...and let us help you!  For the best challenging re-create we will be giving away a sweet little prize!  
Challenge will end September 22nd.  And winner will be announced on this blog September 26th.
