Clouds

Today I have been hankering after clouds.

Not the dark stormy kind that loom ominously threatening to leak, but white fluffy ones set against a blue sky that conjure up images of summer – well an English summer anyway.

Which brings me to the English Summer necklace from Mixko’s Etsy shop. The fluffy felt cloud looks like the perfect thing to fiddle with whilst thinking/daydreaming/ hankering and the raindrops of varying length are just the right raindrop-blue. It’s a great price at just under £20 and Mixko donate 20% of their profits to the victims of the quake in Japan.

I love the way they’ve photographed this with the sun on it.

Would it be too much to wear it with one of these ‘Oh Happy Day / Oh Crappy Day’ rings? These are from Etsy shop Weaselfactory.

Despite being sterling silver the ‘Dreamy Man Flying Through The Clouds’ range by Jesa Jewellery still manage to look fluffy. The dreamy man and birds flying through them have been cut so intricately and each cloud has its own water message inscribed. I wonder if the dreamy man is inspired by Colonel William Rankin the only known person to survive falling through a cumulonimbus cloud.

This Rainbow Cloud print from Dig the Earth is so colourful and retro. Imagine how soon the clouds would be chased away if you woke up to this on your bedroom wall. Is it just me or does this bring to mind Rainbow Brite?

I think grey interiors are wonderful (my bedroom in my last home was painted grey) and this cloud cushion is also wonderful in its grey simplicity. It’s a surprising £17 and even with the shipping costs from Australia it’s still good value. Alphabet Monkey make cushions and crib quilts for little boys and it also comes as part of a set with the gorgeous crib quilt in the picture.

Today’s post was inspired by my cloudy view.
