“It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want-  oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ”

~  Mark Twain

Not So Mellow-Yellow

 

It was gray and pouring rain yesterday morning here in DC. I attended a benefit breakfast and was seated at table with someone wearing the most beautiful daffodil colored jacket- really bright.  It just ‘sang’ in a room of otherwise muted tones. It inspired me to collect a few images from my Pinterest boards that showcase the power of a small dose of yellow in white rooms.

Feeling the yellow love?  It WAS the first day of spring yesterday, right?

 

Iconic Palm Springs

March 2, 2012

 

 

Just wanted to share a few  favorite snaps from my brief stay in Palm Springs last week.  Ever been there?  Well, stepping out of the airport into that blinding light, clear desert air and “mountain” vista is almost surreal… like a postcard.  Like Dorothy landing in OZ  and everything turning to technicolor (without the Munchkins).
