Next week, I'll bring one of those tin foil face tanners

Since I was a baby, my summers have been spent up in Bear Lake. Jinny built her cabin back in the 70s. She wanted to feel outside when she was inside. And so naturally, the cabin is yellow. Like, bright yellow. It's like 24 hour sunlight. I usually have to warn people before they come up just so they aren't blinded by the brightness. I absolutely love it.

My favorite part of the cabin is all the different sun's that Jinny has placed around the cabin. When I was young, she had Hailey and me make clay suns, which she proudly placed on display. Clearly, I was not meant to be an artist:


With this one, I wanted my sun to be girl. So naturally, she has eyelashes:

mostly I want you to make a clay sun for our front room (with eyelashes, of course).

love it.

I LOVE IT, LOVE IT. LOVE IT. I would miss the cabin more than the house if something burned down. Do you remember the quilt I made with suns? One sun wore sunglasses. One was having a bad ray day (read hair).
Yes, I am often cold so worshipping the sun seems logical, right?

Love the suns, love the yellow. Am thinking of starting a Jinny fan club. Who's with me???

Love the suns! I will be VP of the Jinny Fan Club, that is, if she'll allow a Demo to be a member . . .

Jinny Snow said...

But of course!

Natalie said...

Jinny, you are going to allow a democrat to be VP of your fan club? I never thought I would see the day!

Jinny Snow said...

Nobody is perfect!

MandoRama said...

Except Natalie. She is totally perfect.

I love the eyelashes on the sun, LOL!

I don't know you, and I sure don't know Jinny, but I am totally stealing her sun idea. Off now to start my collection.

Thanks Jinny!
