Picnic Blanket Bingo

May 21, 2009; 5:56 am by UrbanBaby

throwandgo.jpgYou’ve got the picnic basket, the delicious and health lunch, and plenty of games for a family afternoon in the park. The only thing missing is something to sit on, and your old Christmas tree skirt won’t do.

Lina Bean’s Throw & Go blanket from its eco-friendly Green Bean group is a cozy fleece made from recycled plastic bottles. Trimmed with a cotton/bamboo fabric leaf print, the 5-foot throw is sustainable, organic, and low impact dyed. Keep it on hand for any occasion where you need a cop a squat.

Sit back and relax

A busy Bean...

Sorry to have been so out of touch, our family has moved and that is enough to slow everything down. We sold our house a week before we settled and moved into the new house- talk about speedy packing. Since then we have all been sick and are just now getting better. So, I think you will be hearing a lot more from us. We hope everyone is enjoying some beautiful Spring weather.

Coming soon...
