colour me pretty: over the rainbow

7th May 2012

Happy Monday morning, everyone. Hope you all had a nice weekend. Mine was filled with garage sale-ing, yard work, and enjoying the sun. The village my parents live in had it’s community yard sale, so we were out getting rid of our junk and browsing through others for hidden treasure. No big fabulous finds unfortunately, but there is still lots of garage sale season ahead!

I thought I would start the week with an extra colourful colour-me-pretty feature. This week it’s all about the rainbow. I was a rainbow nut when I was a kid. My Dad called me a rainbow factory as I would churn out rainbow drawings like they were going out of style. He even talked about this in his speech at my wedding! I love colour and having them all together just looks so happy and cheerful. Maybe one day when I have a big house with lots of space, I’ll paint a rainbow wall or do some rainbow stairs. Here’s a sneak peak at some of my rainbow faves that I have been spotting on pinterest (you can follow me here).

How can you not love that? I think I might need to throw myself a rainbow themed party at some point.

How about you? Do anything fun over the weekend? Have all the colours of the rainbow in your pad? Ever made those rainbow cakes/cupcakes that I’m seeing all over Pinterest? Whatever it is, I wanna hear about it.

    I love this blog :)!! I read it all the time and can’t wait to have my own place so I can start more DIY jobs ;). I am a rainbow girl too! I can’t go into dollarama (for example) without buying a set of multi coloured pens haha so funny but so true. My fav picture was the coloured steps :) a must have in my house one day.. How fun!
