for the love of yellow!

I never was a kid that had a favorite color. I’d go as far as saying I was the lame one that said, “I like them all.” But now that I’m almost 20, I am proud to say that my favorite color is yellow. I may even have a little obsession. Yellow shoes, sandals, rain coat, winter coat, nail polish, rugs, towels, wall, and picture frames. When Ace Hardware had another special for a free pint of paint, of course I chose yellow!

I’ve been looking for a chair to go with my painted desk. When I found a little rocking chair at a garage sale for $5, the lady who sold it to me said, “Wait, really, you’re going to buy that?”, but I knew it had potential! As for the little night stand, it was a hand-me-down from my cottage and I adore its crooked legs and tiny drawer.

Since my bedroom in my new house won’t have a yellow wall, I’ll settle for a couple of yellow furniture accents. And so, for the love of the color of sunshine, banana milkshakes, and lemon drops, here are my new creations:

Simple Pleasures on a Rainy Day

It was a dreary, rainy day in Michigan. And so, my fall back pick-me-up was to go thrifting and antiquing with one of my best friends, Emma. We spent a lot of the day running through the rain to our favorite little antique shops. But, by the end of the day, we were cheerfully skipping through the rain with our new vintage floral umbrellas.

We spotted them in the Salvation Army Warehouse on Division Ave. in Grand Rapids. They had no price tags and so we asked a couple of sales associates for the price. After waiting for fifteen minutes and making a game out of guessing their price (our guess was $15!), we were pleasantly surprised that they were only $1.99! I couldn’t help by buy one for me and one for Kat. The dreary, rainy Monday was instantly turned around!
