A quiet rainy day

Hello everyone,

It has been a slow, and rainy day for me.  Normally I prefer lots and lots of warm sunshine but sometimes days like today come along and practically scream at me to chill out and craft to my hearts content.  Sure, there is another, much quieter voice that reminds me there is cleaning to be done around the house, but I find that one much easier to ignore!  I'll admit I took some couch potato time and watched Twilight while working on some minis.  I made a few more paper things that I will have to 'age' later and I finished a new carpet.  I tried something new with the blue background.  I wasn't sure I would like it but I do.  The pictures don't do it justice.  I really do need to camera shop.  Hopefully you can get a decent idea of what it looks like though.  The little purse I made on a whim with some bits of fabric and ribbon.  I basically made a shorter pillowcase then trimmed the top with a thin piece of ribbon with a thicker type of embroidery thread looped on either side for handles.  It was pretty quick and easy.  I am going to have to try more of that.

When the rain took a break so did I and I spent it poking around my garden.  Some of the peony's broke so I put them in the vase in my kitchen.  I love fresh flowers in my house so I have lots of cutable flowers in my garden for just that reason.  The mini roses were too small for the big vase so I looked around and thought ' what the heck'  and tried the little teapot I had out.  I think it looks cute.  It all smells great too. 

Have a wonderful night everyone,
