A Particularly Private Kitty

001

So, I come into my room, minding my own business, thinking that I’ll just plop down on my bed. But wait…

Who flipped my pillow upside down?

002

What the…?

Apparently, this girl kitty has found a way to turn my pillow sham into her own private sleeping bag hide away.

Good grief.

003

She’s just lucky I didn’t dive right on top of her.

Silly thing. Let me just tip toe back out, so as not to disturb Queen Jiff.

Why do I get the feeling that she thinks she sharing this room with me–instead of the other way around?

That Pretty Little Snowflake

A very popular post from a while back is the Snowflake Potholder. Since that time, we’ve had lots of people make the pattern as well.

Joyce's potholder

Look at this lovely one that my friend Joyce made. It’s the perfect project for a cool Autumn evening. If you decide to try one yourself- or any other project you find on GraciousRain, for that matter– I hope you’ll share it with us by emailing the photo to me at launikanderson@gmail.com.

I’ll love it. You’ll love it. And if it gets posted, we can ALL love it!

Avatar Aang~ All Grown Up

004

Positively the best costume ever. Yesiree, now that cute little Avatar Aang is grown up and only seen in flashbacks and visions in the new series Legend of Korra, it only seemed fitting that The Bald Guy should pay just a bit of tribute to one of our favorite guys.

I mean, he has the bald head for it, and the beard…well, he’s been working on that for awhile now.

Aang

It turned out pretty darn perfect–if I do say so myself.  And perfect enough to win First Place in the costume contest at Ebay.

Yeah…that’s dang good.

Good match, wouldn’t you say?

062

After all, a guy’s gotta have the right “get up” if he’s gonna save the world.

Heh, heh, heh.

:]

PS~ If you want details on the costume construction…stay tuned.

 

The Shop Is Now~ OPEN!

017

Oh, my goodness–how long it’s been since I’ve had the time to put anything new…or let’s face it, anything at all in my pretty little Gracious Rain Shop.

063

But the day has come, and now, after weeks of prep and focus, I finally have enough items to stock the digital shelves.

068

There’s still not a bazillion items, just enough I’d say. But you can be sure that what is in there, was hand made with all the love and care I could muster.

026

Perhaps you’ll see it in the stitches, somehow. Perhaps you feel it in the pretty little models that turned up magically and posed so politely.

078

At any rate, I do hope you’ll stop by the Gracious Rain Shop and check it out. Maybe something will just leap out at you and call your name. I do hope so!

008

If you’re so inclined, please leave a kind word or two, a tweet, a pin or a Facebook “like.” All of it helps to spread the word.

We’re baaack!

And…I’ll love you forever.

Honey Spice Throat Drops Season

100 Happy Days #54

006

Ahhh…here we are again, at that lovely time of year. My absolute favorite, to be exact. Leaves changing and falling everywhere. The holidays approaching. That nippy cool snap in the air. But with all this loveliness also comes the musty furnace coming on at night and the cool air coming on in the day. It’s a balance from hour to hour to not roast or freeze. At our house, sometimes all these changes brings an occasional bout with the sniffles for the big and little folks.

001

Must be time to whip up a batch of Honey Spice Throat Drops! Yummo.

003

Now, I need to tell you–if you venture out and make your own throat drops using this recipe, please, PLEASE go HERE first and find out what Hard Crack Stage actually is for your area at this time of year. It’s not hard to figure out, but it is different everywhere and changes with the weather and moisture in the air. It’s pretty aggravating to follow the directions and have the same temperature I use actually not set up, or burn in your area. Do the test and your drops will work.

007

Mine were a tad more sticky this time because it was raining outside while I was making them. I should have cooked them a minute or two longer. But they still tasted great and did the job.

Yee haw. I love these things!
