Cloud Watching

Sometimes there is nothing more peaceful than a sunny day in the park, grass tickling your skin as you lie back and simply watch the clouds flow by.  This simple act evokes so many childhood memories.  It is a pastime as ancient as we are- such a simple show of appreciation of life.

Today’s post is about, yep, clouds- those fluffy conglomerations of air and water and one of nature’s most ephemeral muses. This post also highlights a few lovely photos from our Etsy friends.

“I love the clouds… the clouds that pass…
up there… up there… the wonderful clouds!”

Looking around for lovely puffs, I stumbled upon a fun and quirky club: the cloud appreciation society. Take a look at their manifesto, it will make you giggle, then look up and sigh….

Ok, grab your blanket… lets go find some of our own….

In case you need a little more inspiration, here’s a few more cloudy treasures…
