The winter, spring, summer and fall seasons each have their own weather associated with them. What is your favorite? Do you like waking up to the sunshine? How about playing in the rain? Perhaps you are the type of person who loves a walk in the crisp fall air? Maybe the colder weather in winter is your favorite? Whichever it is, many of our daily life activities are affected by the weather forecast.
In this post we are going to be showing off some wonderful weather related items. I encourage you to check out these beautiful items and learn a little bit about the inspiration in creating them.
This vintage resin thermometer was hanging outside the sun room of my first home overlooking the pool area. My pool was not heated, so I needed to know the temperature to be sure the pool water was warm enough to swim. The Florida sun does help in raising the water temperature pretty quickly. Even in Florida, the temperature does drop, especially at night. This unique and lovely thermometer helped me to decide if I was swimming or cleaning. Most of the time I was swimming.
Let it snow! These are round stud earrings with a sparkly snowflake pattern. Perfect for those holiday parties!
Brrrr. Even though there is ice and snow, you can warm up with the ice princess earrings.
Let the sunshine in. One look at Bungalow42 and it’s pretty obvious that I am partial to sunshine.
This fondness for sunny days was most likely instilled from childhood. As a girl growing up in Texas, I only saw snow once in my childhood. There was barely enough slush to cobble together a miniature snowman.
Most of my childhood memories are bathed in sunlight; beach days at Galveston Bay and more than one Christmas day attired in shorts.
My shell earrings are an ode to those fond childhood memories of days spent walking sunbathed beaches collecting seashells.
Let it snow.
Defy the rainy and snowy days with a lucky colored hat. The hat is made of coated cotton with an extra width brim, to protect again the wet and windy conditions.

What I love is a year full of all four seasons. I just love what every season brings to the outdoors. Being part Akita and mostly German Shepherd, my dog is not a big fan of the rain or the heat, but he LOVES the snow. The minute he steps outside he tries to bury his entire body in the snow. He is a great snowshoeing companion. We bought him a brand new fancy modern Igloo dog house for his back yard spread, but I rarely see him set paw in it. His preferred abode is this old crumbly red dog house. Sitting perched up on a hill, he is well protected and can survey the land and thinks he’s king of the county.
What fascinates me in the phenomena of weather is light. Every region of the world and every country on earth has its own unique light. This is related to the unique conditions of this place on earth. I live in central Europe and gray misty mornings are often here. I like a fog. My friend, who moved to Australia, says he had a big problem to adapt to the strong sunlight in that country and he misses that gray.
For me, this is the experience that is associated with spring and autumn and the moments spent in the wild nature. Fog is also the subject of many works of art. I introduced wild birds in the scenery of a forest lake covered with autumn fog. This is a pastel drawing and this technique allows me to show many shades of colors and create a subtle mood.
Let the fireworks began!
This dog bandana reminds me of the summer when we celebrate 4th of July to be exact! I absolutely love when it’s the perfect weather to actually wear flip flops and not get sick. The colors of red, white and blue on the flip flops represent the 4th of July a summer holiday very well.
