April Showers







Baskets for picnics...





and flowers we made on a circle shaped loom...






One just never knows what gift the bunny is going receive around here.
Today it is a crown of daisies.





Just two days ago, the bunny received a ribbon and our first beef tomato from the garden... and then it rained.






We love rain showers, because they don't happen too often, and this is such a nice spot to sit and enjoy a book and watch the rain.






My daughter makes these muslin flowers to tie on worn books.






Now the grass is so cranberry pink!











It's all good!

    1. Thank you, Lavender Dreamer. xoxo I think you are right. I decorate for Christmas, but most of the year is warm so autumn looks out of place when it is still in the 90s.

    1. That Ikea cart is fantastic. xoxo I have several around the house. One is filled with toiletries. It's so sturdy and just narrow enough that it is easy to tuck in in a hallway.

  13. We have been enjoying some April showers here too. I believe we are expecting more today...I do hope so because I love the rain. What a coinkydink that you are sharing those sweet loom daisies. Did you make them? I've been trying out a vintage loom my hubby's grandmother gave to me a few weeks ago. They are so much fun to make. What a sweet idea to make a bunny crown with them :-) Love the idea.

    Hugs and Kisses,
    ❤️Ana

    1. Thank you, Ana. I couldn't find our last loom, so I bought a small kit with several looms in it. My daughter and I have been trying to make different types of flowers in hopes we can improve and make a bigger project. xoxo

  25. I still love your little library cart. So cute! I love all the little crafts you and your daughter do together. Shelley and I want to spend hot summer days in the studio making art because this has been a hectic year in school.
