Stormy Afternoon

I have been hearing thunder on and off all afternoon and right now it is raining quite a bit. I don't mind storms once warm weather rolls around though and I love the sound of thunder and rain against the house. It scared Eli away from his window seat though and he kept looking at me as if there was something I could do about it. Silly cat.

I am feeling better than I have been. but this cough is persistent. I am not at the top of my game that's for sure. I really want to feel 100% again though because I miss working out and actually getting stuff done. 

On the upside though, I was lucky enough to be one of three winners in Marissa's last giveaway! I received my necklace from Laura today and I am absolutely in love with it. The packaging was so pretty and all the little business cards are just so pretty they'll probably end up on my wall. This is my first piece from Roots & Feathers but I am hoping it's not my last.

Don't mind the not to great quality of the actual picture. Like I've said before, my phone camera sucks, and storms don't provide the best natural lightning. 

I also got two little spray bottles in the mail which I am using to make another batch of sea-salt beachy hairspray and some natural spray in "shampoo" -I'll let you know the details of that experiment at a later point. Hopefully it goes well, since regular shampoo is leaving my hair feeling really greasy as of late, which is  usually the opposite of the problem I have.

  1. What a prize from Roots & Feathers; simply gorgeous.

    I love thunder and lightening so much, but it's so rare where I live - maybe once every few years, for a fleeting moment? But the ambiance of a good thunderstorm is unbeatable!


    1. Really? That is unfortunate, I love summer storms. We usually get a handful of good ones every year.

  2. Congratulations! That is beautiful, Laura makes such gorgeous pieces.

    I am happy to hear you are feeling better!

    1. She really does!
      And thanks, I am happy to finally not feel completely like death
