my continued addiction with yellow

we upgraded our little table
craig's list has been good to us lately. we are loving our new table and all that space. this weekend, david drove to st louis to pick up a credenza that is quite nice. while he was there buying it from jack nicholson in sweat pants (the dude's email is retrovampire if that helps you visualize things) david spotted this table and chairs and in his infinite wisdom thought it would be a good idea to bring them home too. we ALL love them, for various reasons i am sure. me mostly because they are yellow and i am addicted to the color. but it is quite nice for the kids, our old table only had two chairs, so now both girls can sit and watch eliot play video games online. good sibling bonding time. some more yellow things that i am loving:
the couch of my dreams.
everything about this picture and wishing that blouse were a part of my life.
amy butler's new midwestern modern fabric, particularly this one. oh my.
ordering new sandals for the girls in anticipation of summer. collette has declared that yellow is her favorite color, which i fully support. good thing the twirly skirt for her that i am finishing up today has yellow in it huh?

i also wanted to say thank you for all the well wishing with the polaroid project. i am really excited! i am still on the look out for a good bra and facial products. you guys really are great with all the suggestions. go you!

Ever since my first daugher was born I've had an obsession with pink (a color I dislike before that). I can understand a color obsession. Mine is lasting almost 6years now. :)
