    Yellow is my favorite color ever, I have SOOOO much yellow i love that sunshine and the prettiest flowers are yellow. and I love how popular yellow is becoming because now I see it everywhere and its divine!

    My son’s yellow ducky bath towel…wrapping him up after a bath, all clean and smelling lavender delicous. He looks so adorable I never want to let him go!

    I love yellow too. When I was maybe four or five I had a pair of really bright yellow patton leather mary janes. I LOVED(!) them. I can clearly remember them so clearly. Also remember just how much my Mom disliked (!) them. :o)

    I keep thinking that yellow is just a phase for me. . .because I do that with various colors. But It’s been awhile now & I haven’t really moved on. :)

    I’ve been looking for some really great yellow flats lately—perhaps to help get spring on its way! Or just to cheer me up every time I look down at my feet!!Regardless, I think it’s a need.

    As well as some good brown non-cowboy—already have those—boots.
    Know of any good ones? 😉

    Yellow sweet corn! This picture makes me so excited for summer!

  11. Emily says:

    Too many to count, it is one of my top three colors! So cheery! But, if I had to choose…I would say daffodils!!! They are my favorite!
    I am having a giveaway over at my blog, I would LOVE to have you join in!!!!

    this post has made me realize that i need more yellow in my life!

  14. Abbey says:

    Right now, living in the greater Seattle area, my favorite “yellow” thing is the SUN when it comes out! I cannot wear any kind of yellow well, but my second favorite yellow is butter… 😉

    Love daffodils – sign of spring and hope for those batttling cancer. I also have a purse that I have not worn since last summer – need to get it out as I am getting really bored of all the black and gray I have been wearing all winter – it’s a hobo made of the sweetest yellow leather and has an oversize wooden button closure on the front … great burst of colour!

    Love your photos today (as always) … much needed as we go into a dreary early melt here in Winnipeg!

    Lisa…I love yellow too…but, I have issues with it. Here goes…..I quit wearing it so much b/c I found it actually drew attention to me. UGH! {told ya I have issues..;-}

    I would receive compliments or people would say “Oh, your bright”…”Oh, you stand out”…weird as it sounds…some times I like to blend in with the crowd. I don’t want to get noticed.

    *especially when I run to Target with my jammie pants still on b/c I ran my kids to school and figured “what the heck I only need a few things and I will be quick”*

    So I have yellow around me but usually not on me.

  17. Katy says:

    i’m a mustard type of girl. does that count? but i do love my buttercup yellow entry table.

  18. Denise C. says:

    VW Beetles (the new ones), sunshine, sunflowers!

  19. denise says:

    yellow makes me happy too.

    my interior walls are painted a subtle shade of yellow. making yellow (happy, cheery, bright) a canvas to our lives.

    though i heart yellow i can’t wear it. it looks awful on me.

  20. Ashley says:

    yellow is one of my alltime favorite colors too!

    I Love Yellow…can I tell you that your yellow pictures made me swoon…and while I usually do not wear yellow clothing I do use yellow accessories…I have yellow flats and a wonderful mustardy yellow purse.

    My craft studio is painted a wonderful yellow as well…

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  24. Michelle B says:

    I love yellow too! Especially this time of year! I think it is a nice change from red that we see from Christmas through Valentines. I spotted a yellow chair and cute yellow flats thrift shopping the other day…wishing now I would have gotten them! Yeah for Yellow!

  25. Tiffany says:

    I love the sun…any sunny day! Can’t wear yellow…I’ll never forget trying on a yellow swimsuit one time…my sister took one look and said”Take that off immediately…you look like you just washed up on the beach!” :) I love your photos though…they make me wish I could wear it!

  30. summer says:

    Yellow is such a cheerful color ……..i actually think it creates a cheerful heart ……..and “a cheerful heart is good medicine” Proverbs 17:22 …….I have a very soft bright yellow summer shirt that has been with me for such a long time and yet it still looks so bright ………i also have a pair of yellow fleece pajamas ……..and let me not forget the tiny pale yellow bird that comes to my feeder most mornings ……and the homemade banana pudding ( just a hint of yellow ) simply delish …..and last but not least Mr. Sunshine all throughout the spring & summer i await patiently !!

  31. Misty says:

    I love your blog-can’t wait to check it everyday! I read this post yesterday, and thought hmmm I have a yellow blouse I got at Old Navy that I love, but didn’t post it. Today driving around, in the rain, I kept seeing yellow things! A vintage yellow VW Bug & a pretty little yellow house with little flowers. They made me think of you! I need to start carrying around my camera more.
    Thank you for your blog. I enjoy it! Misty

  33. Clare says:

    my favourite yellow ‘thing’ is my four day old baby daughter who has slight jaudice, but is so beautiful, yellow or not :) x x

  34. Nicki says:

    It’s got to be the sun-weather its the one in the sky or the my own little rays of sunshine from my kiddos!
    Coming in at a close second has got to be my mustard yellow flats with a big gold buckle that I wear with everything-I sure hope they last me a lifetime!

  35. Zak says:

    And those yellow shoes are FIERCE.
