Orange has not always been a favorite color of mine. One day I purchased an orange cardigan sweater in orange, I received so many compliments when wearing this orange sweater that I now incorporate orange into my wardrobe and home decor. I have orange shoes, a raincoat, a great purse, and scarfs as well as having orange candle holders and candles and metal orange table in my backyard and orange floral arrangements. So I recommend adding orange to your home and your wardrobe. Enjoy the following post, a Sea of Orange.

Cloche

A cloche was originally a french word for bell that referred to a bell shaped glass dome that served as a covering for protecting plants from cold temperatures. Today, cloche still refers to a bell shaped glass dome, but the dome may be used as a cover for protecting plants but more often than not a cloche is used to cover a decorative display. You can find cloche’s covering old books, clocks, bird’s nests, keepsakes, teacups and yummy desserts. Enjoy browsing through this post featuring the cloche.Maybe you’ll find a great idea to bring into your home.

Mellow Yellow

Yellow picnic bucket

Yellow has never been a favorite color of mine, but I have taken a whole new look at it this year. It is after all, the color of the sun and spring flowers. I have started to wear more yellow and include it in my home’s decor. It just adds a little pop. So try adding some yellow into your wardrobe or in decorating your home. Enjoy my “yellow” posts, including every thing from bridal bouquets, to purses, dresses and shoes to drinks and ice cream.
