happy februyellow

It happened AGAIN!



I find myself craving yellow, searching for yellow, creating with yellow.

I checked my trusty blog and sure enough, just like last year (sweet idea) and the year before (craving yellow), I felt the same way at the same time.


This week has found me gathering yellow ...


Creating with yellow ...


Shopping for yellow ...


Mellowing with yellow ...

And as always, I love my yellow with dashes of pink!

How about you?

If the weather won't produce it, you have to be able to get yellow somewhere! Love how you've incorporated it into so many different things.

Yum and Yup! I'm craving my yellow like a bunny his greens! ♥

Rebecca said...

I was never a fan of yellow until my little boy came along and it has always been his absolute favourite colour...so now, of course, I love it! It screams of sunshine and fun and all things lovely. Oh and you are so right - it looks gorgeous with pink! Take care hon. Becks x

When you put it this way, I can't resist it either. Such pretty cheeriness, elyse!!! (and where did you find that adorable charm bracelet?)

(You know, though, "yellow fever" sounds absolutely ghastly, doesn't it? Perhaps, it's just a hankering for daffodils?)

What a sweet post!

I do love yellow too.. and I love seeing the color, but as I look around my craft room right now, there is none! other then a pair of scissors and a ruler, and some little flowers on some prints... there is very little yellow in my house. my kitchen is sage and cranberry, my living room is pinks and sage.. bathroom is greens and pinks.. craft room is reds and blues.. bedroom a hodge podge of a mess.... as is the rest of the house! lol!
and youre right, february is a perfect month for such a bright and cheery color. I might need to make something yellow this weekend!
Happy Friday!

Hello Elyse,

Well, yellow is a colour that brings a lot of light and happiness, isn't it? And besides is all over the fashion world this Spring!
Love your ideas!

Have a great weekend!

I'm digging the yellow. Tulips and daffodils. I think I might know where it's coming from. At least you are consistent.

Mary Ellen said...

Hi Elyse,

I have to admit bright yellow has been my favorite color palette to work with these past few weeks. I'm loving the yellow color of chicks and the pretty pastels of bunnies. Just love the feel of knowing spring is coming.

I have been thinking about you alot lately and been meaning to come by your blog to see your kitchen colors again. I am getting ready to change my PINK kitchen to a soft Birds Eggs blue. I can't believe I'm doing it, but it's time for a change. I'll post the kitchen Redo when I'm finished. Thanks for the inspiration.
