Playing on a rainy day

This is quite the rainy day in our neighborhood. It follows on the heels of quite the rainy night. But that's okay. I turn on all the lights in my little spot of the world and everything is bright and cheery here.

Since I did today's homey chores yesterday, I have the whole day (until time to cook supper) to just play and indulge my inner giggly girl's whims! Believe it or not, she first wants to play house. So we catch up on a little sewing.  Just little odds and ends of things. Then I take out my ironing board and lavender water spray. The bottle's original lavender water is long gone, so I replaced it with tap water and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Mmm, it smells even better than the original stuff.

My little inner girl (I call her Little Sherry) wants to iron her newest favorite sweater. And while ironing, Little Sherry and I start thinking of how best to accessorize the new antique sweater.

So we move on to our closet where we choose a creamy color skirt and pearly accessories to go with the soft pinkness of the sweater.

There's nothing like pearls, whether real or make-believe, to make a girl feel even more girly.

We choose our pearliest looking purse to complete the look.  Now we have the perfect outfit all picked out, wrinkle-freed, and smelling of heavenly lavender.  We're all ready and waiting  for our next sunny day.

Aren't we blessed to have a whole rainy day in which to indulge our playful mood?

  1. I love ironing, especially with linen water :D

  2. What a pretty pink sweater!.. And those little buttons are the sweetest! Love the pearls too!... The weather is wet around here, no matter how you look at it. If it's not snowing, it's raining, and now they're worried about flooding in several areas 'round here.. So-ooo, yes, I'm just staying in and staying warm as best I can. Here's hoping "the sun will come out tomorrow"! Have a great weekend Sherry!.. (and Little Sherry!) ~tina

  3. Hi Sherry (and Little Sherry),

  4. ...a very pretty 'n pink vintage piece!

  5. Oh the lavender oil mist must smell dreamy! Your pretty pink outfit is so very feminine... and the pearls really make it sweet.
