yellow.


i have a favorite color...that's threatening to take over my life. most of the time i'll stick with neutral blues and creams, because i love the fresh and classic feeling the colors give a room. but i might have a not-so-secret obsession.

yellow.

i can't get over the color. it makes me smile, drags my pocketbook out of my purse and fills my fridge with unnecessary {yummy!} lemonade.

this week, instead of paying through the nose for skirts like this (got mine at foreign exchange!) or freaking my landlord out with painted walls, i decided to satisfy my love of everything yellow with a little natural coloring.

the result?
my house is oh so full of flowers.

  1. Hmmmm, wonder if there's a freudian reason for that "Yellow" obsession of yours. I seem to recall every room in our kitchen/family room/office/hallway/foyer was always yellow. Hmmm????

  4. Aw, I like how you put them into coke bottles- so clever! and are those real? i'm always so hesitant to buy real ones since they wither so quickly. but either way, those colors would cheer me up every morning :)
