I Am So Loving Yellow This Spring

Maybe it's because spring has been so slow in coming to Northern Illinois, but I've really been loving yellow lately! Whether it's in the buttery swirls of cupcake frosting, the sunshine in a vase of flowers, or a bright yellow dress, yellow is charming me. Enjoy some of these yellow images...they'll have to do for me until the sun really begins to shine!





1908 Carl Larsson Night of the Ball at the Studio

I love the Swedish artist, Carl Larsson. Here in Rockford, we have a restaurant called the Stockholm Inn that is completely decorated with Larsson art. I blogged about it here.




Isn't this pretty? Whenever I see a bouquet of yellow flowers, I think of my bridal bouquet...which was yellow roses, white daisies and baby's breath.










A lovely window in Lecce, Italy



The yellow and blue together here are so pretty and refreshing-looking...




A vintage magazine ad showcases a lovely young miss in yellow





And of course, no tribute to yellow would be complete without a yellow shoe!

Hope you enjoyed these images...here's hoping you're enjoying sunshine too!

I've always loved yellow. I even love dandelions! I don't look good in it, but I love looking at it.

I LOVE yellow! I loved all the pictures...it really does make you think of summer and warm, even when you look out the window and see grey and clouds!

Hope you have a wonderful and sunny weekend!

I love it! We were expecting rain yesterday, but the big winds blew the clouds away. It is sunny today!!! Yippee!! It is still chilly out though. Have a wonderful spring weekend.

Great to connect with you too, Cindy! And, those cupcakes! Oh, my goodness, look so yummy.

I love yellow too and especially with blue.

Happy Springtime to you!

Love this post. The yellow is ultra-refreshing, especially for those of us "stuck" in the winter that won't end!

Beautiful! I wanted to tell you my favorite, but I can't decide!
