I woke up to low gray clouds covering the sky, muted light, and the sound of rain on the roof...and it just made me smile. There are not many days like this where we live. The only thing that would make this better would be if they were big fluffy flakes falling from the sky (I'm not normally a fan of snow after New Years, but we haven't had a single good snow yet...so I'm good with a big snow before everything warms up for good). In honor of the beautifully rainy day, I thought I'd do two posts...a Pin Win and a Pinstrosity. First...the Pin Win. And, I found the perfect one for a rainy day, submitted from England.
The Original Pin
Aren't those cute? I love them. I've never owned wellies...or rain boots of any kind. There just isn't much point here. My parents and brother now have them, but they use them when they go down to the barn to feed the calves.
Deb saw this pin and knew that she needed these in her life. "I already had the wellies & the ribbon so that was ok, then had to borrow the eyelets & things to make the holes from my amazing DIY dad. Did the borrowing, got the scissors out, realised I have absolutely no strength whatsoever & so had to take the whole lot back to my dads to sort out for me! By the way I'm 29 so clearly should have been able to do this myself!"
The Pin Win
I love seeing simple ordinary things spiffed up to add personality and character. It just warms my heart. These make me want to go find a puddle and jump in it. Today is going to be a good day, I can just feel it.
Come back later for today's Pinstrosity! And don't forget to check out our Pinstrosiversary Challenge and enter your project in!
