Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Once again I am a running a few days late getting my "Wizard of Oz Challenge" posted on time! July has been very busy packed full of family gatherings and celebrations!
In case you don't know about my challenge , you will find a list to the right of this post. The invitation is still open for anyone who wants to join me! Just let me know when you post your project. July is also past the halfway point of my challenge. Whew! Five more months to go! Just for a heads up I am planning on a give away at the end of this challenge , so stayed tuned for the details. I can tell you now ,the item for giveaway will be one of my projects! You really should let me know when you stop by for a visit, I will determine the recipient of my giveaway from comments regarding my challenge ! :)
My inspirations for the month of July was "Somewhere over the Rainbow". When I think of a rainbow I always wonder about the "Pot of Gold" at the end of the rainbow, and the Leprechaun's legend. I can see Dorthy and little leprechaun's digging through a big pot, looking for the treasure of their dreams, peace and harmony or big chunks of gold. Here is my little pot of gold. I used a viking knit with dots of color from the rainbow. My little pot is a made from copper tubing, copper disc & washer. I filled my little pot with a gold flower tack, gold mica dust & resin.

Happiness

The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
