Thursday 13: Rainbows for St. Patrick's Day!

Not being Irish, or a beer drinker, or much into shamrocks, I still enjoy St. Patrick's Day for the plethora of green that the day brings along with it; a real sign of spring! But the typical shamrock green isn't my favorite shade of the color, and as I've mentioned before, decorating for this holiday isn't something I really take any time with... I'm more like, let's make a beeline straight for Easter!

I don't know why, but it hadn't much occurred to me in past years that rainbows is the way to go with this holiday. Doh! Rainbows, with a pot of gold at the end, of course. This year I've seen oodles of cupcakes and cookies and all kinds of sweet things with a rainbow leaning, but I'm going a different direction (could be the fact that we've been fighting head colds around here for the past week, at least, that makes me a little down on the sweet stuff right now. Just give me a cup of tea, a bowl of soup, and a box of Kleenex!)

The rainbow discovery, and my love of all things Etsy, led me to wander the web site and look for rainbow items. And there are a few items that push the boundaries of what one might consider rainbow, per se, but I hope you'll bear with me. Click on the text below each picture to go to the shop. Enjoy!

And one extra, because I couldn't resist!

Check out this all-rainbow treasury.

Hope you have a lovely St. Patrick's Day, whatever your plans!
