Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Somewhere over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.  This bluebird eye glass case has three lovely birds sitting in a tree and a flower on the back.    At the moment it is available privately through the blog as I am gearing up for the Albany Shaker Craft Show in a couple of weeks and I want to make sure I have some ready.

As per wikipedia bluebirds are an accepted symbol of cheerfulness, happiness, prosperity, hearth and home, good health. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluebird_of_happiness).   Isn't that something we all want, a day full of cheerfulness,  prosperity, happiness or at least optimism?

It was a rainy day here in Upstate New York so maybe I was looking for a rainbow too.  That made the choice of Somewhere Over the Rainbow as the song of the day an easy one.  We all know the beautiful Judy Garland sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow in the Wizard of Oz.  But this version by Ben Webster on the saxophone is just lovely(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CHzdyJps6M) and this version by Ray Charles has beautiful graphics(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTk-t8s_R0Y).  Have a great evening.  See you soon.
