Rainy Days...


Rainy days never get me down...in fact, I love them! I remember getting my first umbrella aged about five, it was a Sylvanian families umbrella and I remember being thrilled at the sound of the rain above my head..remarking that it sounded like little birds feet! So...I always love being out in the rain now..or being cosy inside looking out at it. I was out today in the heavy rain all wrapped up in my red Gloverall duffel coat..it was so lovely!

I am feeling very cheered indoors as well with the arrival of my wonderful golden tree cards from Mav at port2port...they really are stunning, and the idea of them being limited edition makes them even more special, you can buy them here! http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=74510 Her daily post today was wonderful (as always)..I would certainly recommend a read!http://port2port.visualblogging.com/


From golden trees to golden daffodils..spring is on it's way for sure :) ...with beautiful flowers in mind, Natalie at Nebo Peklo has done the most wonderful drawing, such beauty! Check it out here.... http://nebopeklo.typepad.com/nebopeklo/2006/02/nature.html

Abigail, I feel the exact same way about rainy days. I love them!!! There is nothing better than curling up inside with a good book and a warm cup of tea or coffee and looking out the window.

oh thank you for the mention, kind Abigail!

I must admit I also like the rain (only when I am inside, tea in hand and with the fire on!)

I'm gonna play spot the Glasgow - do you stay in Merchant City?
