From Cyd Converse of the amazing blog, The Sweetest Occasion:
"Attaching a photo here of a yellow vintage canister I keep on my desk. I load it up with things like rubber bands and thumb tacks; those pesky everyday office supplies that you need handy even though they aren't too cute to look at all the time. I picked this little gem up at a garage sale for $0.50 a few years back and I love the cool bird pattern and yellow color. In my everyday life I tend to go for cool colors, but in my workspace I love bright, happy punches of color. (Especially working full time from home, it definitely helps keep me more upbeat. I also have a vintage cat cookie jar who wears a yellow bow tie that I use to stash chargers, batteries, etc.)" I think we all need one of these canisters!!
From Liz Pruett:
"I have a cactus that, when it blooms, has the most glorious yellow flowers. I keep a photo of them saved a photo on my phone so that I have something to brighten my day even in the dreariest of winters. :-)"
From Melissa Crosby:
"About a year ago when we moved into our first home, we had recently moved from sunny Hawaii and I was missing almost everything about it. So I decorated and painted in lots of shades of yellow.
One of my favorite things is this mirror that I got at a garage sale for five bucks. It was black, I painted it yellow and hung it on my wall. It brings the sunshine in and makes me happy! (In the mirror you can see yellow frames -there are a few that recently got pulled off the wall by a crazy two year old, hence the black Velcro on the wall ;))" Anyone else now dying to go to some garage sales?
From Kate Dunlap:
"These yellow beauties are currently brightening my desk. Wishing you rays of sunshine in NYC!" She labeled this photo "YELLOW Goodness." Love it! :)
OK, I really am beaming now. It is just so, so fun to hear from you all. I can't even tell you how much we love it. And then to hear of these little bits of cheer in your lives - well, it makes me smile big.
And this photo represents an experience this year that is near and dear...working side by side New Yorkers to do Sandy clean-up. It truly was an experience I'll never forget.
There's more yellow coming. By then, you guys - we will have made it to Spring!!
Loving you all,
More yellow: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4
