Spring is here...it is actually going to rain. I LOVE the rain. I really do. I think I'm one of those people who could live in Seattle where it is cloudy all of the time. Rain makes me feel cozy. Sunny days just make me feel lazy and like I should be doing something productive. I choose cozy over productive any day!
Now, there is a downside to the rain. I have a few dogs that go crazy when they hear THUNDER. I've tried everything on this front. Tight t-shirts, Rescue Remedy, loud music. Nothing works. Ignoring them doesn't work...babying them doesn't work. The only thing that helps is when they get older and go deaf! This is Estelle (with her side-kick Wilkie). She is the worst about thunder. If there are a few clouds in the sky she starts to panic.
Luckily, I had already gotten outside and taken some pictures of my newest creations. This one has a dress made from a vintage flag I had gotten at the local antique mall sometime back. I LOVE her. Can't get enough Americana.
This gal is a little larger and she wears a skirt that is a gorgeous table topper I found at another antique mall. I almost didn't buy it because it was $9. I know, but I like a bargain. But, my husband talked me into it, so here she is. The bodice of her dress is made from vintage trim and some "buttons" that were from an old necklace of my grandma's.
And since I've gotten so much done today, I think a rainy day nap would be okay, don't you?
