Purple Rain Drops


It’s been especially rainy in my tiny part of the world this past week.  And it seems that everywhere I look, the raindrops have magnified the beauty…by seemingly kissing all that they land on…

…leaving behind convex orbs of reflective droplets.

I am in awe of this simple yet stunning beauty…so much so that it inspired me to create these two strands, hoping to echo the wet and wondrous scene from above.

May the crystal clear sparkle of rain drops enliven your view.

BTW, I received these lovely beads as a gift from a very thoughtful Ann Marie.  She very generously sent me a second box full of goodies, which you can see came in real handy.  In the next weeks I’ll be using more of these supplies to make some pretties, which I’d be happy to share with you.  And I’ll post them as soon as they’re ready.

And speaking of sharing, the random winner for last week’s giveaway (feather necklace) is:

Patricia, kindly email me with your contact info and we’ll make arrangements!

Thank you to all who participated in this giveaway.  I very much enjoyed reading your comments – thank you for sharing your summer love list with me…this brought up so many happy thoughts, thank you.

  10. Many view rain as a negative in their day, a reason to moan and not stop to see the beautiful there is in raindrops. A stunning source of inspiration for those most lovely strands.

    congrats Patricia on your win -it’s such a beautiful “full of light” necklace. I loved revisiting it, along with the photographed flowers which this time looked to me like they had droplets of ice or a sugar coating on them.
