Why are there so many songs about rainbows...

... and what's on the other side?

(click any photos to enlarge)

Probably because they are so beautiful! I've written about the rainbows that dance around our cottage before, but I couldn't help grabbing my camera and capturing them once again to share with you.


The living room prisms throw rainbows...

... in the entryway...

... and on the bird lamp. Both the base...


and the shade.


They also dance down the hallway walls.


The dining room prisms make rainbows dance...


... across the tile backsplash, the white cabinets...


...and the paper towels in the kitchen.


Rainbows decorate the ceiling...


...and the divider windows (right in front of the old cutting board behind the swan above the family room slider).


Rainbows provide a bit of much needed color by the white-on-white-on-white cat/beadboard/recycling center.


And finally, the prisms that hang in front of our family room slider....


...decorate Patience's lampshade hat...


...and the wall behind her....


...while rainbows dance around the girls' baby pictures (hard to believe they're now 21 and 25!)...


...and the family room closets...
I do believe I'll be hanging some prisms in the bedrooms at some point so I can enjoy even more rainbows dancing around the cottage. Can you ever have too many? I don't think so!
I'm linking up to Cindy's Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home. Be sure to hop over to see what everyone is sharing this week!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, full of sunshine and rainbows!!!
Donna

Such pretty rainbows. Does Baby chase them?

I think there will be no rainbows this weekend, just clouds and snow.

Hi Donna,
Just found your blog through Susan.
Your rainbow post reminded me of a time when my dear friend was dying of cancer, and I helped her walk through a room full of rainbows. It was truly a gift, as it was a cloudy, snowy day. A ray of sun shone on her chandelier and splayed rainbows all over her dining room. She tried to pluck them. It is such a fond memory, and you retriggered it. Thank you. http://lindaoconnell.blogspot.com/
