One minute it felt like we were never going to see the sun again & we were destined for months of cold wet nights, wellies & brollies, and now we're basking in 30 degree sunshine.
That's Cape Town & why I love living here - especially in Autumn.
Those last downpours did get me thinking about how I actually enjoy the 1st few days of winter rain. After months of sweating & applying suncream on every outing (or not, and suffering later), it's a welcome change to dream about snuggly nights in, warm fires & soup.
There's something rewarding & guilt-free about being tucked up inside, whilst the rain drops race down the windows outside.
As a graphic, they make pretty designs too.
Here's some sweet rain drop inspired items I found.
And whilst I'm on their amazing site, how's this Raindrop Clutch. LOVE!
I'm very tempted to buy a cute fox in the rain bag from Tiny Daisy
A cute handpainted rain cloud mug on Etsy
Sweet styling project from Magpie Miller
And I couldn't do a post without bunting! This rain drop paper garland is really pretty
Love Love Love this Australian Co textiles too. Gorgeous totes aswell as cushions in graphic triangles, chevron pattern & raindrops. I would buy fabric in bulk from Harvest Textiles if I lived there
My favourite Fifi Lapin looks adorable in the rain
My Lula by Emma Heart Clouds in our spare bedroom
Rain or sun, which do you prefer?
I don't think there's any doubt that I would always choose sun!
