My mother never liked the color yellow. As a child, I never remember any yellow home decor or mother in a yellow dress. She wouldn't even plant yellow flowers in her flower garden. As a result, my opinion of yellow was similar until I started planting gardens of my own. Then, I couldn't avoid daffodils, marigolds, and buttercups! They were so cheerful and it was such a happy color! Yellow has not made it's way into my home, though, until recently. Especially as winter waxes long, I tend to seek out cheer through bright colors --- like yellow. The project at hand is a new valance for the window above the kitchen sink. And the color? Yellow! I think it will bring much cheer to the kitchen each day.
