Yay! ?This is Nile, with my very first blog post. ?I would like to take this opportunity to give a shout out to some things that we Ladies of Gravel & Gold love. ?

Besides stripey shirts and awesome musician friends and YouTube?videos that make us laugh and?perhaps?feel a bit uncomfortable, I would like to include the overarching category of RAINBOWS. ?

Clich? you say?! ?Nonesense.

Just because we live in SF, the city whose rainbow burns brightest, do not be so foolish as to discount the awesomeness of red-orange-yellow-green-blue-purple. ?

Yes, the rainbow can signify the wonderful sentiment of gay pride (described here by the fine folks over at Wikipedia as “The movement [that] has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered”), and has been associated with the University of Hawai’i’s Rainbow Warriors sports teams. ?

But most importantly and most recently the rainbow has popped up in my very own neighborhood in the most fantastic way. ?Some brilliant family has had the good sense and the good taste to paint the entire face of their house in a phenomenal rainbow display.

So, I say, wonderful people at Clipper and Diamond, well done! ?As I can never get enough rainbow in my life, I Nile, Lady of Gravel & Gold, encourage everyone to not only paint more rainbows on their own houses but also to send along photos of rainbows that make you smile. ?Maybe I’ll just have to plaster the walls of our tiny shop with shiney-happy-colorfulness. ?

By the way, come by the shop to see our rainbow Mexican papel picado, or just be jealous of our fabulous auntie Betsy, who was swift enough to scoop up a magnificent handmade rainbow flag with matching painted rainbow base situation. ?

LOVE!
