~Hello Yellow~

Yellow can be used to enhance your concentration and imagination.

We use yellow legal pads for business and schoolwork.
Wonder why they are yellow?

Yellow makes me happy!
It is a comforting color.  *  Very warm and homey.

I love all of your yellow pictures. It's so cold, rainy and dreary here right now. We're not used to this. Your splash of sunshine is perfect!

Thats a nice cheerful post for a dreary day. Everything outside is just gray, so a burst of yellow is appreciated!

What invigoratingly lovely images. For most of my life I'd shied away from yellow in my wardrobe (it often clashes with my hair/skin tones), but last year I bought a couple of pieces with yellow in them and now find myself loving this upbeat hue! :)


Wishing you a blissful Friday & weekend ahead!
♥ Jessica

Anita said...

I love yellow. It's exactly as you described.
Not much on yellow clothing, cars or anything big though. :)

Mags said...

Yellow reminds me of the sun, which has been sadly missing here for the past couple of weeks :(

Catherine said...

These yellows make me happy in a sad sort of way ~ it reminds me of summer but it snowed here last night and is still snowing now. No sunshine for me today! :(

Happy@Home said...

Your yellow mosaic is so pretty. I love yellow. My kitchen is wallpapered in yellow and the family room and upstairs hallways are yellow. Also have yellow in my dining room. It always feels sunny, warm and happy to me.
BTW, I tried your popcorn in the microwave idea last weekend and loved it. That's the way I will be doing it from now on. Thanks again for that great idea.

pennycones said...

I love yellow too. I would like to have more of it in my home after seeing all these yellow things :)

Sigh. I love yellow. All my bedrooms growing up were yellow. (Listen to me . . . "all" I had just one room, but painted and wall papered it three times until I turned 18 and moved out.) But I just love yellow. It's so soothing. It's so sunny!
When my 21 year old moves back out - his room goes back to blue and yellow - it's so pretty! But I put it all away when he came back so he can't ruin it! (hehehe)
Love this! HAGD! Karen
