Will We Have Rainbows, Day After Day? (Free Printable)

My Grandma Rose sang when she was happy, and it wasn’t until years later that I realized most of the songs she sang were by Doris Day. Que Sera, Sera was one of her favorites.

I thought it would make a sweet print for Eleanor, though I did take a little liberty with the lyrics. Doris asks her mother, “Will I be pretty, will I be rich?”, and she asks her sweetheart the line about rainbows. I transposed them because I thought it was better for a little girl’s room that way, and the fact that I could make “RAINBOWS” in rainbow colors may have swayed me a little too.

You may download and print this PDF for your own personal use. The file is 8″x10″, so it will print nicely on a sheet of paper. I used card stock and a white wooden frame from Target.

I’d love to see it if you put this print in your own home too!

    Thank You! Just printed this and will frame! I’m giving it to a friend who is in the hospital for the next 6 weeks on bed rest. She is pregnant and is having a girl. Now she will have something beautiful to look at in her room that she can then put in her daughters room when the baby is born! Thank you for sharing!

    Adorable! Just out of curiosity, what is the font you’re using for the smaller type? Its by far one of the loveliest handwritten fonts I’ve seen in a very long time!

        May 23, 2011 at 12:37 pm

        I know we are probably around the same age ( I may be older)! But,I seriously wish I had had a mother like you! :)

        I was curious about the font you used for “will we have” and “day after day”and then also font you used for “RAINBOWS”!

        Land of Nod should hire you to do some of their wall art pieces! :) You have such a neat sense of style and fun!

        Sorry, I’m no help. I had no trouble at all with the download. Then I printed it quickly onto card stock on my home printer!

        Thanks so much! :) I’m going to tell my daughter, Ava Grace that my LOVELY friend gave this to her as a gift! :)

        I’ll be sure to email you a pic once I buy a frame and hang it in her room!

      Kate, I had the same problem! I circumvented it by clicking on the actual image itself (not the “download” links), which took me to the Flickr posting of the image, which I was then able to download as a JPEG. Printed to cardstock it is now pinned up on my office wall awaiting a frame.

      Soooo cute (and one of my favorite songs, btw: I sing it to my son all the time, just like my mom did with me) – a very big Thank You!!!

    • Making it Lovely
