Color Challenge: Yellow

April is my favorite month of the year, and not just because it has my Birthday in it! It's also the month in my area that Spring officially springs and the sunshine starts to be fairly reliable. It's the month that I start thinking sunny thoughts and start craving yellow. Lots and lots of yellow! So, just in the nick of time, here's our Color Challenge for April. You guessed it: yellow!

To participate, here's what you do:

  1. Put up a post featuring yellow from your home or garden. Make sure to include a link back to this post.

  2. Leave a comment here with the URL of your yellow post. Please, leave me the URL to the specific post, not just to your home page. I get confused easily! :-)

  3. That's it! On the evening of May 4th (a week from tonight), I'll close comments, draw a winner, and post a summary later next week.

I just love doing these--it's so fun to meet and see so many people each month! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! :-) And, as always, here's a few things from my home to kick things off:

 Yellow Quilt

Yellow Quilt

This quilt is one that I bought rather than made, but I just love the pink flowers on the yellow background and the scalloped edge. (And get a load of that gorgeous cherry tree blooming in the neighbors' yard!)

 Garden Painting

Garden Painting

You've all seen my thrifted garden painting before, but I can't help but show it again. It's one of my absolute favorites, and it's sunny yellow flowers brighten my spirits every day.

 Desk Lamp

The other thing that makes me smile is the warm glow of the lamps on my desk. They look so welcoming and cozy.

 Daffodil

And of course, you can't talk about yellow without talking about the cheery Daffodil! I'm having my first Spring in the new house, so I didn't know I had these until they popped their sunny heads up.

Last, but not least, you may have noticed the photo at the top with the strips of yellow fabrics. I cut those over a year ago for a quilt that I intend like to make but still haven't. But my loss is your gain! :-) The lucky random winner of the yellow challenge will win a custom made pillow cover featuring these fabrics!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with! :-)
