Y IS FOR ???????

Miss Jenny is is time for Y???
 Yes!
It is amazing that we are at the letter Y!  I thought of many things but one kept crossing my mind
Y is it we love a color?  Have you ever thought about it? Because of the way it makes us feel?  Or look? (as in clothes) or reminds us of something?  If that is the case then I LOVE Pink, Red, Blue,
White, Black and Aqua.  But Yellow?? 

I don't like Yellow

Why?  I don't know but when I decided to find yellows all I could find were these items
If this seems like a lot of yellow, considering my 
vast "collections" it's not much
A Blue Ridge Plate with gorgeous yellow flowers
Some planters, one new with blue
(I love yellow and Blue)
Two old cracked but cool pale yellow pots
A few pieces of vintage Fiesta in pale yellow
A melmac pouring cup and two little ceramic pitchers
Another old planter 
One of my favorites...a Little Hostess Creamer in
a wonderful shade of yellow
(found 2 yrs ago on the Longest Yard sale)
This melmac tray in a very pale yellow
Remember these April Cornell napkins?
Of course they have blue in them also
So this makes me think about the color yellow and
be more aware of it Because
I DO LOVE YELLOW
 I don't have a lot of it so we shall see
if that changes
Now these yellows make me very happy!

I'm joining in with Miss Jenny for
 
and
With Suzanne over at

Always,
Linda

I'm not a big fan of yellow either. Except for flowers. You have a wonderful collection ;)

Thanks for sharing :)

Great Y post! I am still working on mine! I like yellow and I own some yellow clothes plus my very first car was canary yellow! A 1962 Dodge Swinger! I adored that car! I better get busy and finish my post! Hugs Anne

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Iam glad you love yellow. I know I sure do. My house is full of it now and a few years ago I did not care for it. Great Y post.

LV said...

Yellow has never been one of my favorite colors. I really cannot wear it as it makes me more washed out looking than I am. It looks nice on your dishes.

Brenda said...

My favorite color at this time is red. But as the years have passed I have had a change in heart it seems of my favorite color. I remember loving yellow as a child. I had a room painted yellow with a yellow floral spread.

Debbie said...

Yellow....love it, one of my favorite colors...and what fantastic stuff you have here...love those cute dishes.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I'm always surprised when someone says they don't like yellow! Glad you changed your mind! I have the pale yellow Fiesta cups (and the whole set!)

Love the yellow, so summery and cheerful!

Ninny said...

Oh, I absolutely LOVE yellow! My mother, who loved pink and sewed all my school dresses, avoided that sunny color as it was not one of her favorites. But I would have worn a yellow dress every day of the week if she would have relented and made one for me! Bring on the yellow, it cheers me up.

It's funny, I don't generally like yellow but for some reason have found myself more drawn to it recently. Your collection is lovely :-)

Pondside said...

I LOVE yellow! I can't wear it at all, which defies the philosophy of decorating with colours that look good on one. Yellow walls make me think of sunshine, which is in short supply during our rainy winters. I like your yellows.

Jo said...

I am not a yellow person .... yet i do love a lot of yellow things ...

Mom Walds Place said...

Lovely collection! Just like with quilting, a little yellow can brighten up everything else, but a can a long way.

Then there's some of us who think you can never have enough, especially with blue. Just like YOU said.

fitty's pinky rose cottage said...

i dont really like yellow too! but your collection seems to be pretty and happy yellow! thanks for sharing and happy VTT

My name is PJ. said...

One thing I love about coming here is that you have some of the loveliest things and you share them! Nice Y!

Maggie B said...

I love yellow & blue together, the colours I associate with Brittany, France.
Your yellow plate with the white flowers is very pretty.

Douce France..... said...

After white and blue, I can say that Yellow has is place in my home! It's refreshing!

Mimi said...

You found quite a few yellow treasures...that plate is cute. I don't think I have seen any Blue Ridge pieces in my trips to the thrift shops...it's not like you could very well miss them, the patterns are usually very distinct... big and bold!

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Hi Linda! I love yellow...something that has changed over time! That Blue Ridge plate is wonderful! I was betting that your Y would be yard sale! lol I haven't made it to the Longest Yard Sale yet...how fun! Happy weekend!...hugs...Debbie

~~Carol~~ said...

I actually like the color yellow, and I don't think I have as many things as you do! I love that Blue Ridge plate and that little swan the most!
Have a great weekend!
Carol

Diann said...

Yellow wasn't a big favorite of mine. but, over the years I find myself kind of attracted to it. I even painted out bedroom a very light creamy shade of yellow. And what surprised me is that it almost works as a white. Most colors work with it. That surpised me. Now, I have been adding different shades of yellow everywhere! LOL

Miri said...

Melmac! WOW! I haven't thought of Melmac in years. Love your pale yellow pieces...collectible Melmac! Yes!

Your daisy plate is lovely!

Pam said...

Great collection even though yellow isn't your favorite color. Pretty flowers.

GardenofDaisies said...

I think it is hard not to love yellow. I really like your blue ridge plate and those gorgeous flowers!!! :-)

AshTreeCottage said...

My favorites are the pale yellow pouring cup and those sweet little pitchers!!

Love,
Susan and Bentley
xxoo

Tina said...

At first I grinned when you said you didn't like yellow, considering YellowBoy. Glad you came around! I love the shade of yellow in your vintage Fiesta, though the turquoise Fiesta is my favorite. Longaberger also had a great, creamy yellow called butternut. I have several pieces in that to accent with my ivory pottery with blue accents. Sold Longaberger for nine years and can't remember the name of that pattern...shameful ;-)

laterg8r said...

you have more yellow than me :D

mrs. c said...

I once did not like yellow but I have discovered that I like it more and more. I don't wear yellow because I have "yellow" hair and it doesn't look very well with my skin tone. I think if you gave yellow a chance, you might like it!

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Oh! I love your sunny yellows. Yellow was my mother's favorite colors and it always makes me think of her.

Happy VTT!
Sally

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

GARAGE SALE GAL said...

Hi Linda,
Yellow is such a happy and pretty color and your treasures are too! I HAD a collection of Blue Ridge small plates in different designs and love it!
Warmly,
Deb :)

Mollye said...

Well if all that yellow can't cheer a person up nothing can! XXHugs, Mollye

Anita said...

LOVE your Blue Ridge plate and your Fiesta!!! Thanks for stopping by! I'll have to look at that pattern. I don't have any Metlox Poppy...yet!

Olga said...

Wonderful yellow post. I love yellow flowers, especially in fall, because they are so cheerful. I also like to look at lemons; I think lemon yellow is a very pretty color.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Linda, I love that Blue Ridge plate, and it looks like it is in perfect condition! I love the combination of blue and yellow too. laurie

Christy said...

not bad for a color you don't like! i like blue and yellow together too...makes me think of france (not really sure why!)

Rebecca Everett said...

I am on and off with yellow. First I love it then I hate it. Makes it hard to redecorate. Love all your finds, very pretty

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I really like your patriotic blog design Linda..so festive!

I didn't think I liked yellow so much either but this summer I bought some bright yellow accessory dishes and I have to admit they brighten up my table. You have a nice collection too! Happy "Y"!

GWENDOLYN said...

I don't think I own a thing in yellow... well , the bathroom is painted a shade of it. I love yellow flowers though.
Blessings and hugs!
Gwen

Short and Sweet said...

Nice soft-yellow things. I like walls painted a cream/buttery/yellow because it is so easy to accessorize this color.

Jenny said...

What a wonderful, happy stop on our little journey through Alphabet-Thursday's letter "Y".

I really liked that buttery-yellow Fiesta. It is so elegant. It looks like that planter is a pretty similar color!

I always enjoy my stops here. I love your generosity sharing pictures of your lovely finds with us!

A+

Christy said...

Pale yellow is such a lovely mellow color. I think it is the brighter yellows that I don't care for. You have some lovely things!
