From Etsy Cottage Style, Cottage Colors Party for May ~ Yellow!

All this week at Etsy Cottage Style Blog we are showing our cottage colors sharing treasures we love with the color YELLOW.

I have learned over the years that I like the color yellow in accessories or as an accent color, but I do not like it on the walls. Thus a bathroom redo in the works which I will share soon. But for now, on to the party to celebrate yellow for the month of May.

As I walked around my cottage I realized I have a little more yellow then I even realized. So to start I will share one of my favorite rose bowls that is displayed on the fireplace mantel at the moment.

Have a cozy rest in this soft darker yellow guestroom chair.

This Tuscan pitcher is a real favorite for long stem flowers and I found it about 9 years ago at Hobby Lobby down the 80% off aisle. It had one little chip that I filled in with paint and wha~la, like new!

Another favorite pitcher used for ice tea is this one in a very soft yellow.

Looking through my collection of cookbooks, I noticed this one for Springtime from Gooseberry Patch with a yellow binding.

And, among my garden books I have this vintage gem with a yellow background.

Very dear and very old is this sweet needle holder book my mother created in needlepoint many years ago.

For many years I have collected metal vintage signs that are displayed in the pantry off my kitchen. Here are a few with a bit of yellow!

In another room I have a touch of yellow by accenting with these red and YELLOW Poppy flowers. They always remind me of my grandmother who grew the most gorgeous Poppies.

Pretty pillows with a touch of yellow.

How about a cup of tea from this pretty yellow teapot,

which sits a top one of a pair of vintage yellow nightstands.

Letters and stationary find a spot in this yellow with red rose organizer.

I love the yellow face of my large porch rooster.

And the yellow roof of my garden fence birdhouse.

Sweet is the yellow of this vintage bird vase.

Just picked for you from the garden is my Yellow, New Day Roses or the Yellow Rose of Texas in my garden!

Lastly, I leave you with an angel from my collection holding a yellow rose.
