The Rainbow Connection

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

A bright and cheery morning to you all!  Hope you're all having a fabulous week. 

Lately I've had rainbows on my mind.  A total gorgeous spectrum of colors spinning through my mind.  And I can probably point to quite a few reasons to explain this. 

Could be the fab new bikini I got last week and wore this past weekend.  Under my rainbow colored umbrella.

Or it could be the multicolored bath range that I've been developing and staring at for months and months.  It's literally sitting right in front of my face on my desk at all times. 

It could be the rainbow drinking glasses I purchased for the beach house on Friday.

And how about the Gabriel Dawe Thread Installation.  Have you guys seen this yet?  It's incredible!  {I can't remember who told me about it so if it was you, please let me know and I'll thank you again and credit you :)}

Or perhaps it's the rainbow sprinkles I ate on Sunday followed by getting to see a real rainbow only a short time later. 

Whatever the reasons, I can't get enough of them.  So much so that I think I need to paint each finger a different color to match my mood this weekend. :)

And with that I'm off to the beach for a long weekend.  Hope you all have a wonderful one and I'll see you all Monday!

xoxo

That glassware is too adorable! It looks heavy duty too. I like solid glasses that don't break easily. This week flew by... seems like you were just at the beach, you are one lucky girl!! Have fun, Dawn. xo

Dancing Branflake said...

I actually painted my nails a color other than light pink. It's so in your face red that I'm a little self conscious about it. Until this post. Now I'm all about embracing the color in my life!

Have so m much fun this weekend!
