Yippee!! It's finally raining!!

 We finally got a good storm passing through...its been raining really hard...and steady too...
 Getting quite a bit of water in the yard...I love it!! Everything will be so clean and pretty now...and some much needed water...don't know how much this will help the drought...but at least its watering everything!
 Since I couldn't garden outside...I worked on some succulent containers for the flea market at the college on Sunday....

 This is part of a tea set Don and I found at the Salvation Army...there were a few tiny chips...so it makes a fun container for succulents...I added some fun little guys in there too...
 Here's the tea pot...that's where the chips were...on the lid...I just fell in love with it when I spotted it though...I wasn't sure I wanted to  re-sell it...but I can't keep everything!
 I love adding little friends in my containers....
 I found this guy, too, when I was out thrifting...he's an Otagiri Sugar Bowl...
 Isn't he adorable! I think he will stay here...he may too cute to sell...
 I got all of these too...

Eight pieces for just under $25! These are definitely staying...or perhaps my boys will want a piece or two...there's a 7 and 10 inch skillet too...which I won't use as skillets...but they're shallow enough for corn bread or brownies...and much prettier than plain old glass Pyrex...I love the simple Cornflower design...I have a few of these pieces already...and a percolator too in this design...my parents had this design when I was young...my Dad was the main cook in the house and I remember him using the skillets on the range...he had a clip on handle for them...I wonder if they still make those handles...I'll have to research...
I have been making a few mats for the flea market too...some Spring items...here's a wool mat I am in the process of finishing...
It may rain all weekend long...which is good...it will put a damper on sales at the flea market...even though a lot of vendors are inside in the parking structure...that's where we will be...but I have to think of my area and how badly we need the water...but I'll be there...rain or shine...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

So happy for your rain!
Your succulent dish gardens with the little animals are so cute.
I have many Corning ware dishes like these that were my mom's. I love how durable they are.
Your wool project is adorable.
Have a good weekend.

Great news! I hope it's able to penetrate your dry soil. If I were closer, I'd snatch up that cute teapot succulent in a second. My SIL gave me some in a tiny tennis shoe. I love it, too.

Love your succulents. I wish I could get one from you. Wonder if I could take one home on the airplane in May??
Love that sugar bowl. I thought it was a cookie jar.
