Today is Mustard Yellow

mustard yellow mosaic apron pyrex dressI'm fickle when it comes to my favorite color. Some days it's a delightful turquoise blue, others a lovely lime green. But today? Today is mustard yellow.

This is the color of my everyday dishes and some of my favorite pillowcase aprons. It's the color of home sewn Easter dresses that still find their way into our wardrobe rotation. And it's the color of this fabulous set of vintage pyrex mixing bowls -- brought home by Mr. Peculiar. He bought them for me -- for my shop. But don't they look pretty sitting on my shelf? Almost as pretty as this bread box nestled contentedly on our kitchen counter. And herein lies the problem -- I simply can't keep it all. As such some of these items will find their way into the shop as the week progresses. Stay tuned ...

Things I'm Loving Today:
  • Walks to the library on breezy summer days
  • Flowers on the porch
  • Afternoon downtime with Scooby Doo
Things I'm Hoping for Today:
  • To shrink that ever multiplying pile of laundry (with a modicum of Zen)
  • That you will join me on Facebook
  • That I can figure out just what to make for dinner -- maybe asian noodle salad? (Any suggestions?)
