Awe, Bob Ross. You magnificent man, you. I used to spend hours (or what seemed like hours, at least) watching painter Bob Ross work his magic on my local PBS station. I loved how effortlessly he’d turn a blank canvas into a true work of art. More than that, I loved how he referred to his scenery as “happy little [FILL IN THE BLANK].” Today, in honor of Mr. Ross’ brilliance, we’re going to celebrate Happy Little [Clouds]! The April Showers my be behind us (or not, in Utah’s case), but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy this fluffy trend that has floated on the scene.
Keep yourself warm on the chilly springtime days with this assortment of cloud clothing—a little something for everybody.

A Bob Bye-bye
Well, there ya have it, folks. A post that would certainly make Mr. Bob Ross happy. In the spirit of this passionate painter, I thought I’d leave you with a cool Bob Ross flick I found on the YouTubes this morning. I just love his message. “This is your world. You’re the creator. . . Believe that you can do it.” Quite uplifting and… well, happy! Enjoy!
Rain or shine, I hope you have a fabulous week!
