Rainy Day Dreamers

I think my love for dress-up and all things girlie started long ago in grandma’s attic. As a little girl I just loved to sneak up to the attic at grandma and grandpa’s and peek at the fancy hankies and cutesy aprons tucked away in a curvy old dresser. The dresser had an adjustible mirror that was perfect to get a look-see at my reflection in grandma’s church hats. They were kept in the stacks and stacks of boxes in every corner of the room. The treasures were endless as my imagination took root and  sprouted wings in that little attic space.  Even now I love to play dress up and have an incurable fascination with vintage jewelry and fancy hats.

I wish I had realized then how precious those things would be to me today and asked for a keepsake or two. I was a young girl when my grandparents passed and didn’t hang on to old mementos. I wish now that I had some of those attic treasures to tuck away for a day just like today. The house is quiet and dark on this rainy day; the perfect time to play a little dress up with my girls.

I usually don’t like the rain, it’s dark and depressing but for some reason today I don’t mind. It’s a good day for thoughts and reminiscing about treasures found on rainy days in grandma’s attic.

Wishing you many lovely day-dreams on this rainy Wednesday.

Just a little silly

IMG_0632

My day started out with a crazy little photo shoot.

I just had to share a little silly fun with you. I hope it will inspire you to have a little fun and maybe even get a little silly this weekend. My little princess loves to strut around the garden in her nightie and tend to the flowers. One of her favorite ways to do this is by spritzing the plants but something silly keeps happening every time she attempts this task.

I have to mention the jewelry. She insists on wearing lots of babbles while in the garden. So before we head out to the garden she raids my bowl of bracelets. I honestly don’t know where she gets her crazy from 😉

I just follow her around with my camera and try to keep the snickering very quiet because watering the flowers is serious business you know.

A few other things manage to get wet like the princess herself but  then there is dancing with a few of the other grounds keepers. It was a beautiful day and we took full advantage of it.

It was truly a wonderful day. I’ll share more of it in a later post. BTW I did go back and get the angel. Now common you knew I would, self control what is that?

Now I really must go get some work done, there has been entirely too much dancing going on around here.

Have a great week!
