Things That Have A Bit Of Sweet Yellow

I am late, late, late. We were away and when we returned it seems that there have just been many things to get caught up with.....this fun party is one of them.

Etsy Cottage Style has a Colors Of The Month Party going this year and I love to see what everyone has each month for that color. This month is the color of yellow. I love yellow as it makes so many colors "Pop", but I have to say I am a "yellow snob." It just has to be the right hue of yellow or I turn away and do not want anything to do with it..soft, barely there, buttery yellow.....so, better late than never, are some yellows I have.....



LADY MOUSE FROM THE BEATRICE POTTER COLLECTION..... I have had this well over thirty years....she has a bit of soft yellow on the skirt of her gown....

A bit of yellow in one of the dainy crocheted falling flowers....I have this since we lived in Blaine, WA. upteen years ago!

Beautiful handpainted plate....one of my favorites just because the yellow is that devine shade I love!

A sunflower frame with a darling and precious little granddaughter who is 16 now and horrors of horrors....driving! ( Have you noticed we worry as much about ours grands as we did and do about our own children? Thing is, we are not supposed to let this be known, though! lol )
Note the little terra cotta pot....when this darling girl was five years old, she already knew that her "Mo" loves flowers! When she lived close we would craft together and she cut shapes from paper and drew flowers on them and pasted them in the pot. She gave me the little pot and told me, "Now you will always have flowers." Believe me words were hard to find for this sweetest of sweet thoughts and the cleverness of it all. Love you precious Allie!

And lastly...some pretty hankies that can be found in my Etsy Shop....

Enjoy and have a wonderful day!!

I'm with you, Jil! I love pale, pale lemon-y yellow. My hubbin, on the other hand loves bright in-your-face yellow. So...when I told him he could decorate his computer room any way he wished...well, let's just say it's not pretty. Lesson learned!

Thank you for sharing your pretty things with us...the little flower pot is just precious! I hope you're getting a break from the rain!

Good morning Jil, I loved looking at your yellow bits and bobs. I especially enjoyed the little mouse as I have her in my collection also. I hope you had a great memorial weekend, Maureen

Hi Jill, I came to visit, but blogger wasn't cooperating and letting me leave comments. So far this evening they have been letting me. Knock on wood. It has been hot and muggy this evening after the rain. Just what we needed and wanted. I love your little mouse. Have a wonderful day. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.
