Yep.  It's raining.  But that's not such a bad thing.  Green grass.  Greener trees.  Clean air.  Sometimes the rain can be beautiful.

(ask me how I feel about this by January...)

"Rain Drop Stripe Long Zipper Pouch" by MadameCupcake

Wouldn't it be awesome if it rained different colors?  The variety would sure be appreciated.  Until then, I guess this pretty pattern will have to do.

"rain drop necklace - medium" by resolutetwig

Beautifully simple.  I love the tiny dots that make up this delicate rain drop.

"Rainboots Girls" by thelittleredhouse

This illustration looks like it was plucked from the pages of a favorite children's book.  I love it's retro-y feel (plus, duh, it's fun to splash in puddles).

"Elliott eau de cologne - oakmoss, pine, rain - SAMPLE" by sweetanthem

You know how I love a good perfume.  And what's better than a fresh new scent?  THREE fresh new scents.  I am intrigued....

"Vintage Accessory - Rain Bonnet" by tokyofirecracker

This is just too funny.  This tiny little hat box stores inside a plastic rain hood (yep, just like Grandma used to wear).  It's so kitsch-ly fabulous!

    ooooh one of my favorite smells is rain! i would love to try the oakmoss.

    I love the rain. I need to go get some rainboots. mine are worn out :(

    Yay! Love your daydream of it raining different colors! That would be cool! As long as it didn't stain anything, of course... you know, magic rain!

    That little purse is super cute. I liked rain more when I lived in California and it didn't rain that much. I used to happily go for rainy day hikes... but for now, I think I'm too sun starved to like it that much.

    We need the rain here(although it's not raining). Yes, rain is a good thing. I would sure love for it to rain in orange. That would be awesome, wouldn't it? The rainboots girls illustration is so cute too! Lovely pics as usual. xx

  8. its simple love on September 8, 2010 at 4:39 PM

    Love this post. I am not crazy about rain if it comes too much, but every once and a while it is calming and peaceful and brings a sense of cleanliness and rebirth. Love the pieces you chose for this post.

    Hey Kelli, yep, I think by January we will be wanting to move to Vegas or somewhere equally as warm and sunny!

    BTW, making people disappear is now official, you see I can do that when I rule the world (He! He!)

    Have a lovely evening, T. :)

    I love the rain! It has not rained here for a while :( Rain always makes me feel cool and fresh. Rain can also make me really productive- I get a lot done on a cold and rainy day :)

  12. Oh, My Darling on September 8, 2010 at 6:47 PM

    The umbrella illustration is so perfect!!

    Kelli I love that zipper pouch. I wish it would rain gumdrops! But that could get a little sticky.
