It's time. It's time! Time to hit the road, bust out of town. Pack up the car with a tent, a big inflatable mattress, your duvet, pillows, at least three blankets. Drive as far into the countryside as the Friday night rush hour traffic will allow, pitch up a tent, light a few tea lights in jam jars and have a midnight BBQ. 

When you wake up in the morning you can pull on some wooly socks, stick your head out of the tent and feel that lovely dewy morning air on your face. I bloody love camping! Wouldn't these lovely items make it extra special? 

I love these beautiful Melin Tregwynt blankets, the colours are so saturated and vibrant. Tea towels always come in handy when preparing meals and they double up as a tablecloth too! I'm such a sucker for enamelware - Falcon Enamelware make beautiful mugs and plates in blue and white and have just started doing other great colours. I'm slowly building up a collection of pieces that I've found in jumble rummage shops but I'm so tempted to splurge on one of the plate or prep sets. I love the idea of using vintage toasting forks to toast crumpets and marshmallows by the fire and this storm lantern would come in handy after the last few embers die. 

We're off to the new forest this weekend! I'm racing to finish knitting this jumper (I know!) so that it's ready in time and checking the weather forecast daily! Is camping your idea of heaven too or do you hate the very thought of it? Have you got a trip planned this August? I'm all ears!
