A Month of Sunrays: Yellow inside our hats

Hi, hi, hi.

Another day, another post under the influence of sunshine ...

It's not like, before this series, I didn't know that I was partial to the occasional indulgence into thoughts of sunshine, quotes about light, positive thinking, yellow accessories and so on ... it's just that, the more posts I've blogged on the topic this month, and the more photographic evidence I share with you here ... the more I feel a little bit obsessed. [Either that or I really am turning into Pollyanna ... which I've often suspected was the case.]

Anyway ...

I've revealed the yellow in my wardrobe and in my crafting ... so it might not surprise you know it's found its way into my house too.

Below is a print from Freya Art which I bought for James a couple of Christmases ago, and which which we've framed and displayed on the sideboard in our living room:
Lots of the prints by Freya Art & Design appeal to me, but there was something just right about this particular one:
 Maybe it was the birds that swung it for me.

Or the idea of yellow paint ... or of sunshine... or walking barefoot. OK, so it all appealed to me, which is why I wanted it in our home.

Although, as of yet, we haven't carried out the grass sowing in our shoes and the hat painting ... maybe I should put it on my To Do list.

In the interests of balance, I should say that while I gave this print to James, some of the other lovely things in the photo are gifts he's given me:

Both of the ladies in danger of being eaten by an antique crocodile [which belonged to his grandparents] were gifts from James.

Nothing says 'I Love You' like the gift of a disembodied doll's head for Christmas.

And luckily for him, I actually mean that!

[Please note: this is not, in any way, a sponsored post. I bought the art print myself, on my own accord, with my own pennies in 2010!].

Thank you to everyone who's joined in with the series so far.
This last week has seen another flurry of sunny projects dropping in [how many metaphors have I just mixed?] and I'm pretty sure I've pinned them all to the Pinterest board now.

If you've just found my blog, and you want to join in, all you need to do is:
  •  blog a project / photo / story which fits the theme;
  •  link to this series in your post;

  • Then I pin your post to the board.
Oh and before I go, a quick reminder that the Ribbon Girl ribbon kit giveaway closes tomorrow [Feb 24th 8pm UK time].

See you with more yellow cheeriness soon.
