rainy day products

The saying goes: “April Shower Bring May Flowers”. Well, so far it seems like April showers bring MORE April showers!

I think rainy days are good for staying in and catching up with your latest book while sipping hot tea or popping in a movie or two and enjoying some cuddle time on the sofa. What are your favorite rainy day activities?

Here are some ‘rainy day products’ to get you through the next couple of rainy days. Then hopefully we will see some May flowers next week!
