Touches of Sunshine

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Touches of sunshine, yellow sings to me.
Monticello Antique Mall in Portland, Oregon
has a special event with each season.
I have visited for several years each event.
The color the past few years has been mostly white;
so I was amazed when I visited their Spring event recently to see yellow everywhere.
Now yellow is my favorite color, but I didn't expect to see it shining here.
There were the sweet yellow birds, flowers, pottery, and even a cute little stool.
What can make a heart sing on a rainy Spring day?
Why it is yellow and a cup of Yorkshire "Gold" that makes my heart sing today.
Are you noticing the colors of Spring?
Happy weekend, dear friends!

Oh, it's a good thing I wasn't with you because otherwise I would be very poor! That buttery lemon is the color of my kitchen and I just love all those things you saw!

I love coordinated colours in displays at thrift shops and antique emporiums. Yellow is a pick-me-up colour. That big pot of pansies draws my eye. I bought bunches tulips for our daughter's birthday and chose dark pinks and orange with little flecks of lime green which gave me as much pleasure as it did her to receive them even though not the colour of Spring. We have yellow daffodils in the garden to cheer us.

Your photos made my heart sing Marilyn! Yellow is my all time favorite color, it's cheery and welcoming. I have it throughout my home. Right now I wish I could go there just to be enveloped in it!

SWEET! This so cheerful to see, Marilyn! Yellow is not "my" color, but I do like it in small doses, like in these vignettes. A very pale, lemon yellow I like. Some yellow crocuses are finally in bloom in the garden here, and those are making me VERY happy today! Have a great week, my friend ((HUGS))
