Yellow

15 comments
Angela at Cottage Magpie is having a color challenge for April with a prize drawn May 4th to entice us to join with her in a little scavenger hunt around our homes for beautiful items in yellow. After browsing at my blog skip over to Angela's blog and read the rules to play the game along with everyone.

On a high shelf in my kitchen I have some vintage or vintage inspired things. My yellow there is a vintage flour sifter. It works just like new and is in wonderful shape. It is kind of a special "find" of mine.

Of course there is the Freda's Hive quilt featuring bees and lots of yellow. My grandfather Peter Nielson (Freda's father) was a beekeeper in Huntington Utah.

And I do love dishes and the shape of teapots. This one combines my love of bees and the love of teapots. This yellow teapot was given to me by daughter. Its purely for art sake. I don't drink tea.

Colorful hand towels hung by my kitchen sink make me happy. I like this yellow chicken towel.

I don't have lots of quilts that are yellow exclusively but thinking about quilts and this challenge has given me the idea that I need to make an all yellow quilt. So now thats on my list. But I do use yellow as an accent color in many or even most of my quilts.

I have lots of fabric with yellow on my shelves, its such a pleasing peaceful color, don't you think?

This is a vintage fabric in a glazed cotton with yellow and brown gingham and kitchen items dotted around the fabric. I remember my mother making glazed cotton curtains for our kitchen when I was a girl I think I will wash this (the glaze washes right out) and then use it in my kitchen themed quilt I'm planning for later this year.

Another yellow also given to me by family.

I have yellow walls in my kitchen and more of a golden yellow/green paint color in my sewing room and living room. Yellow surrounds me and it really is a cheery color of spring.

What is a pretty yellow in your home? - nanette

I love the color yellow too! You have so many interesting items. I don't think I have as many...but I'm going on a fieldtrip through my house to find out! Ha-Ha.

I love the Yellow Bee Material in the Freda's Hive quilt. I used to have some like it and made my dog a dress...it's really cute! But, where did you get the material..because I can't find any anywhere. Please let me know.

Yellow is a color I've always struggled with, not sure why. As I've gotten older I'm loving more and more yellow but still don't have it in my home...hmmm. Love your teapots; I drink lots of tea and have a special love for teapots.
