The dry spell has ended as we are currently having a down pour of rain and much flooding all over my area in Texas. This is the rains from the hurricane in the gulf.
As you might know, I am buried in my studio and nowhere to go, but create. Love it! Although, a close eye on the flooding is always close. We are watching intently, because the water is filling up fast.

I did get a few pics of the rains so far and we are due for this the rest of the week.

So you can see, we are really getting lots of rain. We did need the moisture, but not this much!

In the meantime, I will be creating away to bring many new items to my shoppes soon and finishing the last of special orders.
Before I get back to the brushes, I want to share with you a sweet pillow I just purchased from my blogging friends Diane Knott and Holly Knott's shop on etsy.
It is the perfect little touch for my red guest room in color and finish. Diane created this one and her work is gorgeous.
Here are a few pics and the room it graces!

Diane also gifted me with one of her darling pear creations in the black toile for my studio. Oh it looks so yummy adorable with a few recipe cards she also included.

Thank you Diane, I love it!

See you again soon bloggy friends with more from the studio, visitor giveaway and shoppe treasures.
Blessings and Blue Skies be Yours,
Celestina Marie

Wow it is raining like heck there today isn't it? My brother lives in Navasota and I know he was hoping it was going to rain before his new garden dried up for good. I will have to call him and see if it's raining there.
Love the pillow, but of course everything Diane and Holly do is just beautiful!
I hope the rain stops before it floods, I will keep you guys in my prayers!

Hi Sweetie!
Oh My that IS a lot of rain. It sure doesn't seem that you get it the way you need it, huh?

Thanks so much for your sweet note last week. Gary had a good week. I am so late in getting back with everyone. M and I have been re-doing her room, for a College girl look. I am having a hard time today, as it's her first day and I cannot believe she is at this stage of her life. But so thankful she is staying at home for now.

Such lovely goodies, I will have to check those ladies out! Love that room! Red is my pick-me-up color.

Stay dry my friend and many hugs and love to you and L are being sent!
Love, Lorena

You mean it rains in Texas, sweetpea?! Shock! LOL Smooches for Miss Beazy.

Also, just wondering why there is a wrought iron "gate/fence" there by the pool. Hmmmmmm?

xoxoxo and love to you, sweet friend,

Celeste, just popped over after our "date day" to see how you are faring in all the rain. Please tell me you are not having flooding there!

So here I am and what do I find? You featured my pillow and other goodies. Bless you! I am SO glad it fits into your decor. It has a wonderful home - just what a stitcher can hope for. It's a gorgeous room! So comfy and welcoming.

Love and hugs and stay dry!

Beautiful work on the pillow!! She is talented in deed. I would love to have some of your rain MsC, truly I would. I am unable to mow my lawn x's2 weeks as its just to dry and browning. Not a good thing I assure you. Love the Kingston Trio. I must add some of it to my list as well. Have a great day. Tammy

Claudia said...

My goodness you are really getting a lot of rain! How nice that you have your studio and you can stay inside and create!

Hope everything fares well for you - we had so much rain several weeks ago but I live on a bit of a hill so no flooding for me. At least it is a good time to be inside painting and creating.

The pillow is gorgeous and looks great in your guest room.

Jill said...

I will be praying those floods do not reach your home and cause too much damage down there. This weather is crazy lately! I love that pillow it's gorgeous and the room it's in is just beautiful! Thanks for sharing! Hope you are having a great week.

Ginny said...

Not even the rain could take away the beauty of your home. Your guestroom looks so warm and pretty and most inviting to kick off shoes and chill.
We are getting wind and chilly weather here. I am so not ready to give into Autumn, though. My husband is...He's is busy taking in flowerpots, trimming bushes and putting away my lawn ornaments!

I love your pretty pillow, looks beautiful in the charming guest room and the toile pear.
Enjoy your time in the studio and hope that you have fun creating.

Hope that you are having a lovely week

I hope the rain soaks in and is beneficial! I know the flooding can be a problem! Your bedroom is dreamy...such pretty soft colors! I love the pillows Diane is making and I have one of her pears now! I think the special handmade items makes a house a home! ♥

Hello Celestina,
Wow! I am shocked by the amount of rain you have, prayers for you guys not to float away. I love your beautiful header, I just love little pillows a weakness, yours is just too cute!

Stacey said...

Wow, it's definitely pouring there! I guess the saying when it rains, it pours suits your situation perfectly:-). You're quite talented too! I'm just doing a bit of blog hopping. Have a good evening.

Shirley said...

Hi Celestina, I knew the rain was really falling and I wonder about you. Your pictures tell a very good story of what is happening. It hasn't got up to us yet, but they are talking that it may. We start off cool and warm up in the afternoon. It really makes you think that fall is definitely on its way. Have a great day and I hope you get the rain to stop for awhile. Your Missouri Friend.

I would gladly take some of that rain from you for up here! We're having a terrible wildfire in the mountains, about 12-15 miles from our house. It won't effect us, but it's so, so sad with all of the acres and homes that have been lost. It won't be contained for about 10 days they said. The firefighters need a long, solid rain, which unfortunately they likely won't get this time of year.

Hope all else is well with everyone. Love you all!

Got flooded and ran out a few years back by a flash flood here in Indiana. Came back to what looked like a war zone. Devastation everywhere. Homes destroyed and lives put on hold.
Sure hope the water lets up for you.

~CC Catherine said...

Celestina, I can't believe you all are getting these sorry to hear you're getting the flooding! The good note is that you're creating! :) I look forward to the day when I can retire and do what I'm passionate about...I gotta pray that comes soon! :) Hugs Friend! ~CC Catherine
