Aren't Yellow and Red Fun Together?




A little vignette of what I am looking at while sorting and organizing photos on my laptop. (In my kitchen, at my desk - which sits between the fridge and the siding glass door that leads to the deck.)

I am loving YELLOW and RED lately. Was loving red and turquoise all winter....I think the yellow just took over a bit when Spring hit. : )


How cute is this little HEN? It's an egg cup from ANTHROPOLOGIE (bought it in RED too when I was there last)....made it into a little pin cushion to hold pins for my bulletin board at my desk. The ladybug is a glass magnet (gift from my sister Lisa. How cute is that?) The button/heart photo was from Anna Maria Horner's blog around Valentine's day, I think (as a free download--isn't she kind and generous? I love that girl!) I've been rotating the "inspiration photos" clipped in that yellow pitcher. And the yellow polka-dot frame is the first bit of yellow I bought a drillion years ago for the kitchen. (Oddly, my kitchen is "not yellow" - tho you'd not know it from these photos!) The photo is me and my two older sisters at the Pittsburgh Zoo at the Lion drinking fountain circa 1967--(do I look to be about 3?) Notice my sisters had cute shoes on--I was in CLODHOPPERS (corrective shoes that I wore until 3rd grade or something? hated those...always wanted to shop at the REGULAR shoe store. Now I hate shoe shopping. You'd think I'd be all Carrie Bradshaw--gimme my Manolo Blahniks after such childhood trauma! But not. I have stupid short, wide feet. Impossible to get a comfy pair of non-orthopedic-looking shoes on these stubs of mine! LOL)

But I digress! What was I talking about, anyway?
