No Sun Today, Thank Goodness for Favorite Finds

Though I can't complain considering the weather the rest of the week, today is an ugly day. A day made for your wellies.

It's also a day when I need another cuppa tea.

No sun makes it hard to wake up. Add to that the fact that I'm a night owl, not an early bird and you'll understand whey I need another cuppa tea, and something bright to put a little pep in my step.

Here's some bright happy favorite finds from fellow etsy shop owners. Check it might need your sun glasses.

1. Happy new blue flower braclet, from a vintage piece. by beevintageredux   
2. One of my favorites, it's a big one for my Mom to sing to any new babies.  And how can that paper cut postcard not brighten your day? How does she do that without making a mess of the paper?  by ashleypahl
3. Love Matryoshkas, they're just colorful and cute. by sewZinski 
4. Foxy Loxy, pudding and pie, little fellow makes me smile.
5. Pow! Sapphire blue, in a purse. Love. by milloo
6. Frida Kahlo inspired. She's one of my favorite artists- colorful and surreal, and sometimes macabre and this is a lovely 'ode to Frida'. by SuzannesStudio
7. Check out the pom poms and lace on this fun cuff,
love color mixed with black accents.  by lindecise
8. Elephants might usually be gray, but not this one.  by honestworks

Fun, happy, swirly whirly.  by sometimesiswirl 

Walk With No Pictures

I was trying to beat the rain yesterday, so I didn't download pictures of my camera to make room for field walk shots from last night. Plus, I just didn't feel like having something in my other hand.  Good thing. Got to the top of the hill with the hound, three deer just waiting for us. Two good size does, and one smaller kiddo.  (Can you believe I didn't have my camera to capture them?) Both mommas looked up with their ears perked up and checked us out. The little one didn't notice us until Lucan noticed them and started making a 'I'm gonna get you' kind of fuss. I was very glad I had both hands to hang onto the leash as the three of them bounced off into the woods with their white tails wagging.  Exactly why we keep him on the leash until we get to the top of the hill to see what's down in the lower end.

Other than that, it was pretty quiet in the field last night.  Just one biggo dragonfly scooting around with his tail tucked under, which looked pretty funny. I did find one feather and if I had to guess I'd say it was from the red tail hawk that hangs out there. It's very downy soft, so not a full grown feather. It's now in the nest with my other feather finds.

That's it in my part of the world, what's happening in yours? Got any sun?

Make it a great day, and take a moment to check out the colorful shops featured in today's favorite finds.
