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!

I stumbled upon this product yesterday while viewing some of the new fabrics and wall coverings offered by Donghia. I had to share…

Wouldn’t this washable, eco-friendly wallpaper be a great addition to a workspace, kids’ room, kitchen or more?  It seems so functional!

Here are more great reasons to use this magnetic wallpaper:

  • The top coat is made from 100% linen which is a natural product.
  • It is 100% recyclable.
  • The acrylic backing is made with the same technology as low VOC paint.
  • The non-toxic magnetic layer is made from the same mineral substance found in dietary supplement.
  • It’s offered in several colors to fit your style.
  • You could take all of the magnets off for a cleaner look and it would just look like linen wallpaper.

What a twist on the traditional cork board wall…

Where would you use this in your home?
