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.
