YOU are my sunshine

Every morning around breakfast time, I sing the first verse of "you are my sunshine". I sing it to (actually WITH) Harold, my pet parrot. It's his favorite song and he loves to join in. And he is my sunshine. Whatever day it is, whatever has happened, he is always my sunshine and can brighten my day.


A few years ago I made a brooch of the song for myself. It's a similar design to this new necklace but not sculpted. Then the other day I thought that my little "anyone" figures would incorporate nicely into the design and voila! A necklace to warm your heart!


Two little figures are huddling together under an umbrella....rain is pouring down, but they have all the sunshine they need in each other! YOU are my sunshine. I made a tag of the title that hangs down at the clasp.


Hope you have your own sunshine. Who is it? Who always brightens your day??? Go on...tell us!


If you are curious about all the lyrics to the song - here they are

So sweet. My mom sang that song to me all the time, and we sing it now to my kids. Just today we were talking about getting my son an umbrella for waiting at the bus stop, too.

Ah Beth....I can just picture a little boy at the bus stop with his brand new umbrella. Hope he got a cool one!
