rainbow clutch on epaulet

Happy happy joy joy

Growing up in Hawaii, seeing rainbows was a daily delight.  And count me amongst those that will always think of the University of Hawaii’s true mascot as the ‘Bows. So I may have a soft spot for rainbows, which would explain why I get quite cheery spotting these fun applications of my colorful childhood friend…

    Such a happy collection of images – these lovely rainbows have such a childhood innocence that they would brighten anybody’s day. Especially that floor – yummo – walking on rainbows. Wonder if it leads to the pot of gold….

    How cute is that string wrapping?
    But my favorite must be those CHAIRS! The best example yet of taking serious furniture not at all seriously.

    RE: the floor — asked the husband (architect) and he thinks it’s vinyl applique, and not painted. Anyone else have an idea how it’s done??
