over the rainbow(s)

It seems everyone is compiling/posting a happy list lately, and while I could never consolidate my master list into something blogable, I have opted to share many versions of one thing that makes me happy. I've loved rainbows all my life. Not necessarily the faint ones in the sky, but tangible items in rainbow colors. Long before I knew the implications of brandishing them, I have been drawn to their cheerfulness. As a card-carrying depressive, very few things in life hold a reliable appeal to me, and rainbows do. Obviously there is somewhat of a polarity in a rainbow's connotation, but I'm just posting a few of the objects which catch my eye each day and remind me that there is always something about which to smile.

My umbrella.

A GUND worm I bought Reilly a long time ago, because I like rainbows, lol.


What's left of a stationery set B got me...

My fabulous earrings that don't go with ANYTHING! Grrr...

A cute variation of the traditional stacking ring toy, minus the head, which Maia lost. :)

A bracelet I made because I HEART the beads.

Oh Sharpies. I could include them in every post. Special nod to Gail and Gab!

A fantabulous silky hangy-thing in my car, which enhances each and every day.

Reilly's socks, which I covet.

And of course, Obama + rainbows = MANIA!

In junior high I made this mobile-like thing. It was supposed to be a white cloud made out of satin with ribbons in all the colors of the rainbow hanging down. If I still had it I would give it to you. I LOVE the worm - we have two of them!

You DO realize your address is right there under the fridge magnet???

I realized as I posted it, but immediately forgot, until my mom brought it to my attention, as did about 7,000 others. I tried taking the pic against the fridge itself, but none of those turned out. So I went with this one. Alas, I will get off my ass and correct this breach in security, lest anyone come see my house (the horror!).
