a pretty cool life.: Rainbow wind catchers

Rainbow wind catchers


In the spirit of St. Patrick's Day and pots of gold at the end of the rainbow, we made rainbow wind catchers this afternoon. 


I totally stole this idea from Meg.  If you ever need some colorful inspiration, she's your girl. 


Some of us were a little more literal in our rainbows than others.  It's good for contol freak mommies to learn to let go.


Even on my filthy window, I love them!

  20. So cute! I'm trying to figure out where you get the streamers that are that thin. The only kind I have ever seen is the wide streamers for parties.
