Living in Color - Golden Yellow

Hi! I'm back again with my second 'Living in Color' post. It's really no secret that I quite adore golden yellow. I mean just click around a little on this blog and you'll see it shining bright. This is one of my easiest collections to gather together. I'll probably be able to do 3-4 yellow 'Living in Color' posts in the future because I have so many yellow things. 

When I'm out thrifting I am always immediately drawn to yellow. I can't stop myself. I have so many yellow dishes and trinkets from antiquing it's fairly humorous. Besides my mustard yellow ruffle flats from Target way back when (who else has these shoes?!!) some of my favorite yellow pieces are my pyrex, salt and pepper shakers and my gingham tin. I also looooove my yellow mittens and they have been worn so many times this winter. I want to give one little shout out to the handmade artist (and my friend) Christine Sharpe Crowe from Weather and Noise who is the maker of my bee hive tea towel. I love her work.  Hope you liked this little peek into my life and my color collections. I'll try to continue sharing them every month.

What's your favorite color to collect?

Love,
    Erin

  2. I always gravitate towards green, however, I noticed that I have several of these beautiful yellow items - pyrex & shoes, so maybe I'm just drawn to color!

  3. I love yellow and your collection is lovely. But I don't have just one colour which I like or dislike more or less than the other. Depends on my mood, I guess...

  10. I just got my first piece of golden yellow unexpectedly this week - a pretty pashmina for my birthday! I'm shocked to say the color actually looks good on me! There will be much more yellow added to my life in the near future :-)

  20. Hey Erin,
    I don't know if you remember me, but I sponsored your blog a few months ago.
    Anyways, I couldn't find your email but I wanted you to know that I did a little blurb about how much I liked one of your headbands here: http://letitberawphotography.blogspot.com/2012/02/supporting-hand-made.html

    I'm totally obsessed with yellow too! We just thrifted some vintage, mustard yellow couches and when we found them I was so excited I almost died!
