Has winter's long and drawn-out run this year completely destroyed your soul? Some of us still won't be enjoying spring-like weather for quite a few weeks, so here's a simple way to recreate that feeling indoors. The next time you sit down for a meal, swap in these faux grass placemats that make it feel like you're having a picnic, even while seated at the dining table.
Made from polystyrene so the grass will never die and lose its green lustre, the fake turf can also be easily hand-washed with warm water and dish soap. Because since it's not actually outside, there are no insects, squirrels, or seagulls to clean up any spills or crumbs you leave behind.
But at $38 (£25) each, and with no international shipping available as yet, you might be better off just grabbing a shovel and cutting your own circular patch of sod from the garden. [Terrain via The Green Head]
