#Project52 – Yellow

This week’s them for #EverydayProject52 is Yellow. And while I don’t have much yellow in my wardrobe, I do still seem to have a lot of it in my life. Especially in my book collection.  It’s a good thing I don’t arrange my books by color, like some people do. I think my shelves would Read More …
