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?

Framed wallpaper

Sometimes we blogger-types arrive home to find boxes waiting at our doorstep. It could be a giveaway win, a thinking of you gift, a purchase! I would like to share all three in a display of the amazing generosity* throughout blogland.
*Well, the first two are a display of generosity; the purchase was more like a display of follow-your-gasp!

The Giveaway Win

A box with a giveaway win arrived yesterday from Joyce of Scrap for Joy! It included a book, two sweet butter pats, crafty items and more! Joyce has always been special to me; she's warm and funny and so talented. I crossed my fingers that she might include a goodie created herself. And she did.

Joyce made this pretty garland using Cath Kidston stationery that says smooches! Of course I had to do a little stylin' to show off her handiwork. {Sorry for the glare}

So very adorable.

The Gifts

My superfunpal M from {oc cottage} shocked me with a delivery of beautiful books: thriftychic so that I could finally return it to the library, and the equally swoonworthy The Comforts of Home. How fun is she?!

In the past months I have received an aqua stocking from sweet friend and Pansypreneur Sharon, a fun bird from Kreatelier from artsy Margaret, and a stocking from cheerful Jeanne.

The Purchase

And this GASP AT FIRST SIGHT Savannah removable wallpaper was a MUST-HAVE when I found out (thank you, Molly!) that it's from Pottery Barn Kids and ships for free. Sigh ...

I have a zillion ideas planned for this roll!

i-smooches to you for reading
