japonisme: the birth of the blues, greens, yellows, reds....

the birth of the blues, greens, yellows, reds....

(this post was inspired by Changes in the Wind )

SHE'S A RAIN- BOW

She comes in colors every- where;
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She comes in colors everywhere;
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her dressed in blue
See the sky in front of you
And her face is like a sail
Speck of white so fair and pale
Have you seen the lady fairer

She comes in colors every- where;
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

Have you seen her all in gold
Like a queen in days of old
She shoots colors all around
Like a sunset going down
Have you seen the lady fairer

She comes in colors everywhere;
She combs her hair
She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, everywhere
She comes in colors

She's like a rainbow
Coming colors in the air
Oh, every- where
She comes in colors

Dear Ms. Lotusgreen

You visited my blog late last year to ask some questions about Matsue (from which, sadly, the Louis C Tiffany Museum has moved). I am changing my blog slightly and would like to bookmark your own excellent blog, but I am under the impression it is polite to ask permission before doing these things. Do you approve? I shan't be offended if you do not - my blog is an unashamedly low-brow sort of an endeavour, and not to everyone's taste. But please let me know if it would be acceptable to you.

Sir S

and then there is the great htgt (which every time i type it i think of hgtv). awards will be gratefully accepted. :^) thanks, darlin'
