I have been looking forward to posting to this new meme, "Mellow Yellow Monday," and while preparing my morning cup of tea I was thinking of possible pictures to post. Maybe a field of yellow dandelions would be refreshing to look at for it would be in such contrast to the view outside my window this morning of a cold, white, world with the snow still coming down. While thinking I was also looking around my kitchen and noting some of my favourite old 'yellow' things I had surrounding me. On the microwave is a yellow glass pedestal fruit bowl with pears and bananas in it and in front of the bowl a pottery three-in-one sort of planter, filled with crayons awaiting the visit of some little ones who love to draw and colour. The antique 'string holder' yellow cat is a special favourite of mine. If I put a ball of string in the back of it the string would hang out of its mouth. On the wall by the door is a visual memory of the years I lived on the Alberta prairies in the form of a painting of golden, yellow canola fields which I had painted in 1993.
Another favourite piece, on top of my refrigerator, deserves mention too while these decorative cows graze contentedly around this old antique, butter crock, which is now used as a catchall for this and that.Just a quick look in the dining room at two other favourite antique pieces will complete this post. Above a bowl with matching candlestick holders and to the left I have included a showy cream and sugar set which has a geometric black and white border.And for a final view from my kitchen, this one being out my window. As we are in the midst of a winter storm this sidewalk snow blower passing by gives me yet another glimpse of yellow to share.
