Rainbows #FolksyFriday

Today`s Folksy Friday theme was solved very quickly. I went onto the Folksy forums and there spotted a thread about rainbows. I clicked on it to find that a Pinterest board had been made called Chasing Rainbows. It just looked fabulous, so bright and cheerful with all those glorious colours together.
Well, that did it, the theme was chosen. I really love rainbows and can stare at one until it disappears and often do. They vary so much. Some quite narrow and barely there and yet others so vivid and bright that they have shadow rainbows. I find rainbows incredibly uplifting, a symbol of hope and get quite excited when I see one.
Some of course say that if you go to the end of the rainbow you will find a pot of gold. For me, the rainbow itself is the pot of gold with it`s vibrant jewel like colours.
I hope you enjoy theses rainbow creations I have chosen for you from the wonderful sellers on Folksy. If you have a few minutes why not have a browse through all these lovely shops to see what else thay have to offer. Who knows, maybe you will find your pot of gold in the form of a perfect gift or something you have wanted for yourself.
Yesterday I made it in to the city as it was a nice dry sunny day. Still cold but so much better than all that rain. I did get done what I went for and then.... you`ve probably guessed by now.... yes, I bought yet more yarn. Oooops.
I would say that I didn`t mean to but I actually went looking for something in particular. They didn`t have what I wanted but they did have three colours I loved in a mix wool/acrylic yarn. I only bought one of each... but... they were very large balls. Ooops again. I really must not buy anymore, mainly because it was a big squeeze getting those ones in. I have yarn squeezed into every nook and cranny upstairs, with bulging cupboards and even shelves filled with it.
Is there such a thing as Yarn Anonymous I wonder? I do seem to have a serious habit here.
Okay waffle over, time to rhyme.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Red and yellow and pink and green
the most vibrant you have ever seen,
orange and purple and blue
to make a rainbow for you.
Then there`s violet and indigo
we need them to complete the show.
For when the sun shines and rain falls
then nature makes one of it`s calls.
When all the elements are right
we are treated to a glorious sight.
Emerging slowly and then growing fast
we gaze our fill knowing it won`t last.
Beautiful colours so vibrant and glowing
even as the rain is still flowing.
It creates an endless fascination
this amazing natural creation.
We all love to watch it grow
this stunning, gorgeous rainbow.
Within you do you feel a shift,
does it give you a real lift?
To see one in all it`s glory
is just the start of the story.
For many it lights a fire
of creativity to inspire
and lifts us to a greater height
away from the humdrum fight.
It comes and goes without a fuss,
something that means a lot to all of us!!
