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 be very unbalanced toward yellow. I collect the 70s era Nancy Drew books with the yellow spines.  I have a pile out on my shelves waiting to be read, as well as a large collection that I’m currently storing until I can come up with a more permanent home for my collection.

And those aren’t the only yellow books I own. My most recent book purchase, a collection of short stories by Karen Russel, is nothing, if not yellow.

And it’s not just my books. I’ve got a lovely collection of yellow fabrics that are awaiting the possibility of becoming a fun pineapple quilt.  If I ever get back in my sewing room.

Do you have a lot yellow in your home?

    My walls are a pale vanilla yellow; under LED or compact flourescent light, they are warm and cosy. Yellow doesn’t suit my complexion (I’m a winter), so I don’t choose it for clothes or fabric, but I do love yellow roses. Seems to me they smell better than plain old red ones.

      I love yellow roses. My grandpa used to get them for my grandma every year on her birthday and their anniversary.
