April Showers ~ Wednesday Wanderings and the Shops Found Along the Way

March winds and April showers bring May flowers...

Well, we're smack dab in the middle of those April showers, I'm afraid! A night or two ago, an April shower big huge storm woke me up 4ish in the morning with what sounded like hail on the roof.  Sounded like the skylights would bust out! But, it was nothing but an April shower that, by a more reasonable time in the morning, had become a beautiful sunshiny day!


I wish these were the raindrops that had fallen on my skylights -- they are too pretty to be so loud! Have a look at this shop; it's full of rainbows and rainbow colors! You'll feel happy just peeking in her shop windows! Rainbow Raindrops Cloud Mobile by The Rainbow Room on Etsy.


How about this little cutie! He wouldn't be so loud on my skylights! Magnets keep him sitting nicely on his cloud, floating around the sky. So sweet...  Lil' Magnetic Rain Cloud by Animal Magnetizm on Etsy.


Fleecy soft rainbow scarf! This is so cute it would make your day happy just to wear it! Rainbow Scarf by  Oolahoolah on Zibbet.


This is a fun rainbow from one of my Facebook buddies! Max does beautiful 
bead work and this is no exception. She says it's inspired by her daughter 
who's really into peace signs and anything hippy! 
A Rainbow of Peace Handwoven Bracelet by Krafty Max on ArtFire.


Do you remember the Smurfs? We absolutely loved them at our house! 
These are vintage rain boots just right for puddle splashing! Have a Smurfy 
Day!!! Vintage Smurf Rain Boots by Stardust Vintage on Etsy.

Only light showers from now on, April ~
Bring on the May flowers!

I really miss the Texas "showers" and the lightning and thunder that usually goes with them. Here in Oregon, we rarely get those explosive storms, just a constant wetness!
