It's been very rainy and cool for the last few days.
All the Easter decorations are put away, except for this sweet vintage embroidered cloth and some foil wrapped chocolate eggs.
A little bowl of happiness :)
Today there is mist all around.
I hear the Pitter Patter of tiny raindrops.
Giving the table a beaded edge.
But the coffee pot keeps me warm inside.
I made a nice big pot of it the other night.
It is just the thing on these wet, spring days.
I forgot to take my chair cushions in and now they are soaking wet.
Everything is wet.
Wet dogs, Wet feet, Wet hair when I go out to feed the birds.
Towards evening the sun gets low enough to spread some glow beneath the clouds.
These rainy days are perfect for doing some stitching.
Once the daily chores are done (are they ever really done?), I reward myself with a nice cup of coffee or tea and sit and stitch for a while.
I am making a tablecloth for my summer table.
While I sew each tiny stitch, I think of all the wonderful meals I will share on my handcrafted cloth.
Meals shared with precious family and friends.
But for now I will share some strawberry shortcake on a lace covered tray.
Just Ol' Blue Eyes and Me.
On a rainy evening in front of the fire.
Warm and Cozy.
What are you doing this weekend?
