Rain, Rain, Go Away -- Some Vintage Clipart for a Rainy Day...

It's raining...
It's pouring...

The girls and I are home today.
The girls are sick and it's pouring outside.
Homemade soup is bubbling on the stove.

All is quiet; just the patter of the rain outside my window.

Since I can't invite you over to join us for a bowl of soup,
I offer up this rainy day treat instead...

...four pieces of vintage nursery clipart from my collection.

I know all the crafty DIYgals will like this one!

Simply Sweet!

  1. I would love to have more rain here in Albuquerque. If it were a more regular occurrence, perhaps drivers would be less likely to slow down from 50 to 20mph each time it sprinkles.

    I suspect that a lot of them fear the sky is falling!

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures :)

  2. I love the girls with umbrellas! So so cute. xo

  3. I just looked around your blog! OMG what a talented women you are. Love your clipart. And your cakes are unbelievable. I'm now following you, hope you'll come by and see me.

  4. We need rain here in the south... drought conditions! :(

    Great artwork!

  5. You can't beat home-made soup on an otherwise-miserable day! :)
