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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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. . .
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 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?
