Last year I bought a Hamsa charm, handmade by an artist in Israel, to decorate an interior wall and bring peaceful feelings to my house. The wall, which never gets direct sunlight, looked like it could use some brightening up! I also hung a small suncatcher in a window, consisting of an angel and a crystal teardrop (shown in this post on a gray winter day). The suncatcher makes tiny rainbows, mostly on the floor. This morning I noticed that there was a rainbow directly on the Hamsa, and took a photo to share.

Although it may not seem like much, I’ve found that having little bright cheerful things around the house can go a long way toward keeping me in a good mood generally!

  1. I love the way the rainbow light “landed on” the Hamsa! Lovely!
    Last winter, I hung crystals in many windows of our home and delight in watching where those rainbow lights land each day!…I love having pretty things all around the house and find they brighten my mood, too! 🙂

  5. Having been born in Hawaii, I miss the warmth and light of the sun. Here in the Seattle area gray, rainy days are the norm. Turning on lights throughout the house helps brighten my spirits. Not a substitute for the sun, but it’ll do.
