my contribution to yellow



















I am really enjoying my above vintage yellow shoes that I paid a whopping $2.00 for.
Ahh good old sunny yellow.
So fun.
So bright.
So cheery.

When I was in high school I took the personality color test. 50% yellow was I.
Anybody else take that test?

LOVE the shoes.
Never have taken the test.
LOVE the yellow doors. It's inspiring ideas for my laundry room makeover that we'll get to one of these days. (We have a 1/2 bath that I would like to add a shower in, that is in the laundry room/garage entry area off our kitchen. I told my husband I was going to knock the wall down while he was at work to help speed up the process. Let's just say his eyes got wide and worried :-)
Loving the yellow....

What a score on those mary-janes. And I do covet that butterfly belt...superfly. :)

I've been slowly incorporating yellow in my guest bedroom. Just trying to figure it all out--but it makes me so happy. Don't we all need a little bit more cheer?

This is a 100% cheery post!

LOVE this post! Love your shoes! What a cool find- and only $2.00. I am so jealous. Hope you have a beautiful holiday weekend.

I'm with everyone else - I don't know if I'm more jealous of the awesome shoes or the fabulous belt (scarf is cute too). Actually, I do know, I am most jealous of your WAISTLINE!

I've never taken the test..but considering our shared love of yellow, I may have to look into it...

Yellow makes me happy - especially those yellow shoes!

Amanda said...

only recently have i discovered my real love of the way a pop of yellow beings a ray of sunshine to a room. or, in your case, to your feet. :) so cute you are.

{Amanda} said...

no way! $2 shoes? great find & yes, yellow is a cheery sunny color- I love having a yellow kitchen and I feel all sorts of citrus-y happiness when I cook =)

I will e-mail you my address so you can forward your shoes and scarf immediately. I. heart. yellow. I STILL mourn my beloved yellow Beetle Daisy that I sold when I was in the hospital on bedrest with The Trips. Sigh.

i can't stop thinking about the black trim on those yellow curtain panels!

Thanks for the shot of yellow. Your vintage shoes are so fine. Love the yellow door.
I have yellow accents in my living room in the form of two Mecox ceramic stools in front of my coffee table. It helps me face the morning with a positive outlook.

Yes, in HS I was 90+ percent yellow, but as I age I am less yellow and more blue and emotional now...sigh

I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. The shades of yellow in this post are absolutely beautiful. Could you include this yellow color layering in a window covering? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
