Description: Picnic, a simple word that usually brings about a smile. Picnic is derived froma several hundred year old French word, pique-nique. The rain hit the tin roof as the wind howled. An early season tropical storm was upon us. The wooden woven picnic basket had been carefully packed in anticipation for a picnic at the Wade's shore.Â It held all that was good in Annie and Pon's world,Â all that was good and delicious. They had caviar, truffle cheese, crusty baguette, sweet cream butter, fresh figs, cherries, a fine vintage champagne as well as a robust red...and cold fried chicken! Now, all they needed was for the rain to stop. "No worries", said Pon. I've an idea and disappeared into the garage.Â Sit here and I'll be right back. Pon pulled out a couple of last year's Christmas trees stored in the garage and placed them in the living room, then spread a camp blanket and rested an open beach umbrella behind the blanket on the floor. She hit the Pandora app on her phone and called Annie into the room. "Viola'", she exclaimed. "Picque- Nicque a`l'inte'rieur!" And life was good! Improve the quality of your life with this handsome, vintage "Wov-en-wood" "By Jeriwil" picnic basket, complete withÂ Â built-in utensilÂ holder. Â Dimensions: Â 11" x 21.5"
