Yay for Yellow

It's so interesting to realize that as we focus on something, we sometimes start seeing more of it. Since the yellow post on Monday, I saw girls wearing interesting yellow shoes, plants with brilliant yellow flowers, a sweet elderly lady with a big yellow flower on her hat, and tons of yellowish purses at the mall. In what universe they were before last week, I don't know. Glad they magically appeared in my world.

I want to end this busy and fun work week with a touch of sunshine. I'm granting myself the wish for a tiny bit more yellow before we move on to something else. Aren't these pretty?:

Not a fan of wallpaper, but this seems the perfect place 
to have breakfast with friends
on a Sunday morning. Pass the maple syrup...

Adore the Chippendale-style mirror in the background:
I just want to play house and have make-believe tea with friends 
(but real cookies) when I look at these...

Love the assortment of yellow porcelain vases 
on this dark wood dresser:

Can you believe these are made off fabric remnants? 
What a cool idea..
Don't know about the walls, but I am totally loving the yellow tub.

The accents around the yellow door are actual seashells, yes..amazing.

This has to be one of my favorite color combinations to WEAR.
Imagine...a black skirt, a yellow sweater and a turquoise 
summer shawl.  Neat. I love the elegance of black and yellow.

Look at the effect obtained from choosing one of the 
background colors in a much bolder shade:

Thanks, lovely yellow, for your sunny disposition.

May your weekend be full of sunshine and happiness. Viva el color amarillo, chicas! (for my Spanish friends).

Love and hugs,

  26. Even though I know it's not for everyone, I've always loved yellow - how can you not be won over by such a happy colour? That yellow chippendale mirror is divine, the chair is gorgeous, and love it in combination with black.
    I'm working on some paintings with a yellow background at the moment too - you must be a mind-reader!
    Have a great week,

  27. I'm thinking all of the yellow we have been seeing and posting in our blogs is either because we are all ready for warmer days OR we are trying to counterbalance the turquoise trend fot this year. :)
