Rainy Friday

It's raining and cold and dreary but I'm not complaining because we desperately need the rain here in Carolina.

I wanted to get some pictures of the cardinals in the back yard this morning but they wouldn't sit still so I took a picture of this flowering loropetalum bush instead. The bright pink flowers and the raindrops on the leaves looked so pretty.

I headed out to do my Friday errands and stopped by Goodwill and was happy to find some copper pots! I love copper and now I have two more pieces to add to my collection and I also found this lovely address book. Happy day!

Another reason it's a happy day is that Suzanne over at painterofthepast has awarded me with the You Make My Day Award! Thank you Suzanne! And now I'm to pass this along to others who I find inspirational and encouraging in blogland.

I want to pass this on to everyone that I visit and who visit me everday, so if you are reading this today, take this award and pass it on!

Have a good weekend.

Hi Donna...I hear it's been a little drippy in California lately. At least we know that spring is on it's way!

You got some great finds at Goodwill. The copper is beautiful.

**LOVE your last Bird painting!

I collect copper pots too! Yesterday was rainy, but today I hope you are having the beautiful sunny Saturday that we are over here in this part of NC.

I love the copper...I hope your day is sunnier today. We have sun for the first time in a week! It just feels happy!
My nest painting arrived today and I love it! I am blogging about it this afternoon! Thank you SO much!

Every time it rains here I thank the Lord and ask for more. I wonder how much more rain until we are out of the drought here in NC? Those are great finds from Goodwill. I love copper pots too. Rhondi xo
