I’ve been thinking about the color yellow. It started when I randomly tossed a throw pillow on “the” chair, as in the new chair –not just any chair. The yellow perked up the browns, was a great contrast to the purples, and it left me wanting more. More yellow. It was the mother of all aHa decorating moments. Seriously!
I asked myself a few deep philosophical as well as practical questions:
“Where else can you add yellow accents?”
“When is too much yellow too much?”
The questions, the answers, the quest for yellow ultimately led me to quotes about the color yellow. No point in trying to follow my thinking, but do read on and imagine how adding just a few yellow accents to your life might change it! For the better, of course!
Here’s to a brighter, sunnier day!

Fame stole my yellow. Yellow is the color you get when you’re real and brutally honest. Yellow is with my kids …. The bundle of bright yellow warming my core, formerly frozen and uninhabitable ….

The gray kills me. ~ Rosie O’Donnell
She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.” ~ A.A. Milne
