Well, Mother Nature is not done with Minnesota. It snowed here this week-it's cold again and I am a bit cranky. I need a shot of spring badly. I have a large window in my dining room that looks out onto our backyard. Since we do not have close neighbors- no one behind us in fact but cows- I don't hang curtains on this window. I like the light to shine in- if I ever win the lottery I will build a house with lots and lots of windows. I do like to hang things in the window once in awhile though depending on the time of year. In the winter I usually hang wooden snowflakes here- in the fall I hang wooden fall leaves. I was thinking about rain and raindrops- wet earth, green shoots, flowers growing up out of the ground and I suddenly thought- why not spring showers in my window! I started out with some wooden shapes from the craft store.
