Out of Africa

I'm back blogging after my summer hiatus and seem to be channeling 'Out of Africa.'  Must be the heat!

There's so much to love about the movie: Meryl Streep's performance as Karen Blixen and, of course, Robert Redford. But, the real stars of the film were the glorious African plains and the incredible set and costume design.

Makes me want to sleep in a tent, or find an old Airstream to decorate.

I am tempted to give our next soiree an African theme. (After all, the ongoing heat and drought have made our yard look like a desert landscape!)

Smitten with the gold foil wild animal graphics above and below!

I think I may be convinced to dress the part, too - longing for the temperature to drop so I may wear anything with sleeves again!

Love these vignettes that incorporate the 'Out of Africa' tone ...

Do you think Redford is free for dinner?
