If Life Gives You Raindrops Take Umbrella Shots

Rain, rain go away! I am so sick of the rain and gloomy weather! I am about ready to jump in the car and drive as far as I have to drive to find sunshine. We haven’t seen the sun here for more than a few hours for weeks! Ugghhhh! I will say that I’m grateful that we haven’t seen the flooding or tornadoes that other parts of the country have suffered through.


I have a small collection of vintage umbrellas like the one pictured above. I like to display them and sometimes I will even use the ones that are in good shape. The flowers are a bunch of peony buds that I’m drying.

Today I’m just sharing snapshots from my everyday life. I drink coffee year round whether the weather is hot or cold. I typically drink one cup in the morning and one cup in the afternoon. That way I get a good jolt twice a day which is good for a creative boost. Any more than that and I become immune to the caffeine boost; any less and my butt drags. So two times a day I look forward to my coffee time. I feel lucky when I’m drinking it. Is that weird?

Back in January I showed you my favorite wintertime cup. Here is my favorite summertime cup.

It’s also a hint of what’s coming up in the next DIY Double Dip Flip. Be sure to come back Tuesday to see the fashion piece that inspired two DIY projects, as well as the two projects themselves.

Is it raining where you are?
