Rain Rain Rain / Positive living footnote
It has been raining for three solid weeks, and my backyard is now a sodden disaster. This is the backyard which in 5 weeks time is going to hold a large Marquee and 70 Wedding guests. Many in high heels and long dresses. I usually love to see the rain as we live in a very dry State, I love to see my plants, flowers and grass getting a good soak, but please if you are listening up there, it needs to stop soon or this Wedding is literally going to be a washout.
I spent yesterday making an ivy garland to decorate the top table, the garland was just a silk and plastic affair, so I covered the plastic stems with green silk ribbon and tied the ribbon which is very narrow, into a few long stringy bows along the length of the garland and then I added some little gold ball sprays to give it a little zing, and I,m really pleased with the results. The gold sprays were left over from the decoration I added to the plain cake boxes, they ( the cake boxes) were black but now they are black and gold. I still have the Candelabras to decorate, I bought these on Ebay as a job lot from a Bride so they were exactly what I wanted, but they need a spray paint and then I am going to add Ivy to them with my handy glue gun. I have one for each table and two for the top table. That should be the last of my craft projects, and we have saved a ton of money by doing these ourselves.
My positive living footnote is actually going to be about the rain which I complained about earlier. I love that the rain is giving life to so many things, in a Country where a lack of it kills off so much wildlife, and crops. These downpours are a blessing to so many people. So I lay in bed last night and listened and enjoyed the noise of the rain on my window.
