The Rainbow Connection

I am a sucker for rainbows.  Growing up, it was all about rainbows.  Rainbow Brite, rainbow birthday cake from 31 Flavors (aka Baskin Robbins), rainbow colored clothes all worn at the same time, The Rainbow Connection in the Muppet Movie.  I gather the whole 80’s rainbow obsession was our parents’ attempt at making their 70’s love child agendas kid-friendly (hold the acid).  Whatever the reason, I still need to restrain myself from purchasing every rainbow-inspired consumer product I encounter.  Fortunately, despite my Pavlovian response to rainbows (drool!!!  swoon!!!), I’ve matured enough to realize nobody likes a kitchen that looks like a rainbow threw up all over it.

Although I can’t personally own every little bit of rainbow I see, I can blog about it and share all my favorite rainbow-inspired photos and products with the world!  Enjoy!
