Oh rain, how I love thee & A few rain-washed favorites

afternoon tea
by MarianneLoMonaco on Etsy
I love the rain. And storms. There's nothing better than opening the curtains up as wide as you can, sitting back with a cup of hot cider and a good book, and letting your mind float away with the echoing thunder. Ahh, heaven.

Maybe I'm unusual, or even distantly related to Eeyore, but intensely bright sunny days tend to depress me, and rainy days perk me up. I love the crispness of the air, the way the grass is given new life, and how it usually gives me an excuse to throw on a comfy jacket and scarf.

In honor of this oh-so-frabjous day, I would like to present to you some fabulous rain and storm inspired pieces I discovered on Etsy that will let you keep a little black rain cloud around all the time... but first, a highly appropriate musical number :)

That makes me warm and fuzzy :)

And now for the lovely art!

I love all of the different interpretations of rain and storms in these pieces and the varying emotions they evoke. So which do you prefer? Sunny days or rainy ones? Leave me a note below letting me know! :)


  1. I was so in love with winnie the pooh when I was younger. It was nice to have a little sing along this morning!

  2. I'm so glad you enjoyed it! We all need a little Pooh Bear every once in a while :)


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
