What to do on a rainy day {Be a copy cat for one}

Today was a miserable day I tell you.
It may as well have snowed in my opinion. Cold, drizzly and dreary.
I ran out to the dollar tree and bought some more seed packs.
4/$1.00 you can't go wrong.
You will be seeing a lot of these I have a feeling.

I loved this image I found the other day, and thought how easy and cute this would be.
I have bottles and twine.
However, why not use some rope instead?
I purchased this rope at the Dollar tree as well.

My bottles are larger so I wanted something a little more chunkier.

I also played around on my camera and tried different settings, etc.  I really need to learn to take photos on a dreary day.., so today was practice day.

As you can see, seed packets are popping up everywhere now.

I plan on moving this arrangement around. But for now, I needed what little bit of light I could get.

That was my day! 
How about yours?

Have a great evening everyone!

I love all of your seed packets. Gives me an idea to stock up and put them on all of my merchandise. A little freeby incentive for possible spending customers! :)
Your bottles and rope are adorable. Keep up the great blog reads!!

My day? I painted my granddaughter's bedroom over at my daughter's house ~ third day this week. I have muscles I haven't felt in awhile, Debbie! It was cloudy and drizzly here, too, so it was a good day to be inside and painting. It's looking like Spring at your house already!

If that doesn't scream spring, what would. Your photos always have such a lovely light filled look.

So cute Debbie! I think your pictures are wonderful. I need a new camera and photo lessons too! It was raining all day here in Northern Ohio too, but it did melt the snow and was fairly warm. Love your seed packet ideas too! Peggy

If it's dreary outside your house, then it's cheery inside with all those bright flowers. Those seed packets are such a cute accent.

Rainy and dreary here in NY today too Debbie. Wish I did something fun like you! All I did was the dreaded food shopping:(

You did good with the photos! Like the way you used the seed packets. I used some veggie seed packets from DT under some clear glass plates years ago, but my table is always piled up these days - no room to decorate.
Have a great weekend.

Cute copy cat project Debbie! I need to start thinking spring in my house. It was cloudy here yesterday and I spent my day inside painting crown molding, doors and furniture. More painting is on the agenda for today as well. Enjoy your weekend, Gail

I'm so happy viewing your photos of flowers, just simply in the bottles. They're pretty and refreshing our dull days in Hong Kong !
