When I woke up this morning and looked out of my bedroom window and saw these beautiful raindrops just hanging from my tree I thought it looked lovely.We had had some much needed rain. The drought here in Victoria, Australia has been really bad with our water levels at only 36.9% full.

After looking at all of the tutorials from ArtsyMamas Party it has me in a creative mood so hopefully now that I have finished painting baby furniture I can do something for my self.

Shannon from Paint Mine Pink is also having a swap that I have put my name into so that should be fun. It is a Cotton N Candy Swap - great idea Shannon

Hello Alison.

Im so glad one of us is in a creative mood!

The rain is a great thing to see but I think we need alot more of it so keep your fingers crossed.

It is so very cold today!!! My poor puppy is outside shaking so I am going to give him a wash and let him curl up beside me.

Talk soon, Siobhan xo

You would love Perth at the moment. It has been raining for the last three or four weeks. I know we need it but it is giving me the @#^%$!!!

Hi, Alison! Thanks for stoppping by! Isn't it funny how seeing an object can bring back memories like that? So often I find that a family member 'thought it was junk' or couldn't see 'why anyone would want that ol' thing'. Luckily, after enough meltdowns, I think they have all learned to check with me before chucking something out! I hope you find it!

Hi Alison, thanks for stopping past my blog. Now I can't wait to find out more about you and read your blog! I will add you to my list. What baby furniture have you been painting? As much as I love the rain I am hanging for some nice hot weather so I can get my boys outside!! :)

Oh don't we need the rain. I read in the paper today it could get really bad this summer seeing that we haven't had as much rain as they predicted....
