Yellow {buttercup, lemon, mustard, lucketts}{28}

My kids are always asking me to state my favorite color.
And I can’t.
I can very clearly remember asking my own mother what her favorite color was when I was their age. . .
She would give me the same answer that I give them now:

“I don’t really have a favorite.”

 I found it very frustrating.  I can remember my own disbelief and the feeling that she couldn’t possibly be telling the truth.  I felt so strongly about my own favorite color.
Which was:
blue
then red
then purple
then pink
then purple
then red
then maybe green
and, quite possibly, blue again. . .

Really.  I felt so strongly. . .
I thought she was just being difficult.  And I can see the same look in the eyes of my own kids.
Can you remember that?  When you had a favorite color?  Do you have one, still?

Whatever the changing state of my color preference over the years – there is one (maybe two) that has never made the list.

Yellow.

I can’t explain why.  I’m not going to try.  There is no real reason. . . it’s just not my thing.  I do like lots of things that are yellow.

But.  I don’t think I have EVER, you know, owned a single piece of yellow clothing.  Or wanted to live in a yellow house. . .

So.  A funny thing happened to me on Sunday at Lucketts.  This, as you know, was my second day at the Lucketts Spring Market.  I had made my way around the whole place the day before.  As I was walking down an aisle on my way to visit a jewelry vendor friend of mine, I looked up and saw these chairs.

And then this chair caught my eye.

And then I was off.  I made another tour all around the market and that color just kept jumping out at me.  A color that does not usually spark any interest was speaking to me.
Very loudly.
I’m not really 100% sure what it was saying. . . but I was compelled to take these photos.  Do you think maybe it was because of the cloudy rainy-ness of that day?

I’m hoping you are a fan of yellow.  A big fan.

and a few more chairs. . .

 See what I mean?  Everywhere I looked – more yellow!  Once I started looking for it – it was almost the only thing I could see!
All different shades and combinations.  It really did make for some bright spots on a very grey day.  I’m posting as many yellow photos as I think you can stand but in total I took way more.

i am still wishing i had bought these ladder cleats - they would have made great bookends. . .

this stool is made from a wooden crate- says "high explosives" on the side. . .

This next group were all situated in one booth.  This vendor had a really obvious yellow theme going on.  I wish I had a place to put the screen door – what a great advertising piece!

did you ever have a stool like this in your kitchen?

i love the yellow cabinet and the white "sunshine". . .

See that parking meter head?  I used to have one of those.  I picked it up off the street outside my very first apartment.  I wonder what ever happened to it?

I was at a big flea market today – one that is local to me.  It made me realize all over again how special Lucketts really is.  Every booth is beautiful.  Really.  Everyone does such a great job of making everything so appealing! That’s not the case every where you go. . .

lots of booths decorate with flowers. . .

Okay.  I’m not entirely sure if you’re enjoying this display of yellow indulgence I went on.  I do have two more posts planned on the subject of Lucketts.  I have a bunch of pictures to show you that are not of things that are yellow.  Really.  Lots of other colors.  I promise.
I’m also going to show you what I bought from the booth of my friend, Miss Mustard Seed.  I got two pieces.  Neither of them is yellow!

Just a few more

and lastly, how many of you had one of these? or still do? I do! Pyrex. Big YELLOW Bowl!

And so concludes our trip down the yellow brick road.  Thanks for joining me!

 I really don’t know what came over me…

Do you have a favorite color?  Is it yellow?
