Those lyrics are so beautiful, aren't they? It has to be one of my all time favourite songs, along with the film, of course. From Judy Garland to Eva Cassidy, it spans the decades and generations. Oh to be a child again, and see 'The Wizard of OZ' through fresh eyes. How magical that would be! I never tire of it, 'Lions and Tigers and Bears, on my....'
That brings me nicely to the theme of today's post, rainbows! or should I say rainbow inspired. I know it's not everyone's bag, but I really love multi-coloured things. Anything with lots of colour will usually catch my eye first. Funny thing is, my wardrobe consists mainly of darks. I do try and accessorize with colour though, especially scarves. My favourite shade of the moment would have to be Teal.
Around the home I like to place colourful bits and bobs. Not everywhere, just the odd thing here and there.
If I had my way I'd live in a house where every wall is painted white, and adorned with brightly coloured artwork. Speaking of colourful artwork, I know a lot of you will already know about the very talented Loretta Grayson. One thing I had on the top of my wish list for Christmas was one of her Backyard with Fireflies prints, and lucky ole me got what I wished for.
Mum & Dad (oops I mean Santa) kindly gifted me the large print. Now I just need to find the perfect frame for it. I can't tell you how excited I was when the postman delivered it last week! It arrived safely to the UK from Australia, beautifully packaged. That's what I love most about purchasing from Etsy, that personal touch you don't get on the high street. I've admired Loretta's work for some time, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to finally receive it?! Oh, and did I mention Loretta's a rather gifted crocheter aswell?! you must check out her blog or Flickr stream!
Lots of my crochet work thus far has been rainbow inspired too. My alter ego Colour Heaven would testify to that ;)
I just love getting lost in my own colourful world
