just call me yellow...

Yellow—color of the large envelope in the mail
today from the accountant

Yellow—the feeling of cowardice to open large
yellow envelope


Yellow—the color of m&m’s popped for dispelling
yellow feeling caused by large yellow envelope

Yellow—the caution light flashing over accountant’s large yellow envelope still waiting to be opened after
yellow m&m's inhaled slowly enjoyed

Yellow—bit of sunshine! on accountant’s warning on large yellow envelope


Yellow—mellow yellow with relief!

J.H.R.

What’s your color of the day?



...it’s just embroidery, have fun with it!

The suspense of the story was gripping!

Blue is my color of the day, and preferably every day...the beautiful blue of the ocean and the sky.

Loved this post. I am a huge fan of yellow...I painted my living room walls yellow several years ago and still love them today. Glad the accountant's envelope was not bad news...have a great weekend!

...it was a fun surprise invitation to join the accounting group on a day-long culinary tour of the Laurel Highlands later this summer! Color me a happy yellow!

I had my own
yellow envelope
moment this afternoon.
I pushed it aside
to deal with it,
later! Thanks for
the lovely distraction.
I'd rather think
of monograms and
daisies than a huge
bill!

Nice story of a day of yellows...I believe my color today is hydrangea blue. Love the mellow yellow monogram. Pretty place setting.

How cute is this post? I am always seeing yellow as it's the color of our front door :) It's the color I never saw coming as one of my favs!! So glad you weren't seeing red from the accountant :) XO, Kelly

How fresh that embroidered napkin looks on the yellow dishes, Cathy! A very summery table! Haha ~ good thing he adds those labels to the envelope. I could see many people having heart attacks getting an envelope from their accountant. : )

Love the this story and the monogram. How cute of your accountant to put that sticker on the envelope!

That was very cute. It conjured up an image of jars with M&Ms of only one color each to nibble on when that particular mood strikes. Yum. It's just before 5:00 a.m. here right now so I'm not sure of my mood color yet :)

What a creative post!! And, how cute of the accountant to place that sticker on your envelope.

I need some mellow yellow! So much to do and so little time:)
Love your yellow and the hint of green polka dots, one of my favorite color combos!

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hey Cathy...my daughter just bought a house. We're so excited. I'd like to make her a pillow with her house number monogrammed on it. If I send you the fabric could you come up with something? Thanks, Ann

I'm thinking my color of the day is pink!! Loving pink today. Well -I do love pink every day. And of course, I love yellow too!!

Desire Empire said...

I am in need of some yellow. I miss our southern sun in Winter. It is such a coincidence as I have been out shooting yellow all morning.
How considerate of your accountant to warn you of that yellow envelop's contents. Phew!!!!
Have a great weekend
Best Carolyn

The yellow is so pretty! My color was definitely green today as I was planting in the garden. Hoping for a blue sky day tomorrow! Have a wonderful weekend!
