bottling the rainbow...



Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could make preserves of all the awesome things in life... and open one up every time a dull wintery day like today comes up. I'd have a basement full of jars and bottles with labels like: sunshine, my kids smell, warm summer rain, black sea, rainbows...etc., A bit cheesy.. I know, but it's just so grey for so long... I got to make something up to get through.
Anyhow, this is a pattern that depicts a rainbow bottling factory... wherever that may be...

I love the colors! These remind me of springtime. I especially like the rainbow trees and the brown kitty!

I could definitely use a couple of jars in my pantry... it's been so cold and grey.
