‘So she’s really serious about this whole mustard yellow obsession?’
‘Well she sure seemed excited when she found me’.
‘Hmmm, I’ve seen her looking at my white porcelain finish lately … I wonder if I should be worried?’
Goodness, it’s a bit alarming when your normally uncommunicative animals start talking to each other about your colour fixation. I guess that’s when you know you may have a very serious problem indeed. I honestly thought my yellow obsession would be long gone by now, but here we are probably a year later and I’m still looking for excuses to surround myself with that bright and cheery colour.
First it was finding the perfect mustard-coloured cardigan, then I found myself unable to resist a beautiful yellow coat … and lately I’ve been searching for a skirt with just the right length and in a particular shade of yellow. For someone whose wardrobe has always been filled with a large proportion of black, blue and grey, this yellow obsession makes little sense. Unless perhaps it’s just all about making up for lost time? All those years spent thinking that yellow just wasn’t the colour for me … the days lost to the wearing of black cardigans and coats when I could have been making things so much sunnier …
Whatever the reason this mustard thing and I seem to be getting pretty serious, and now it’s spread to homewares. Just look at this sweet little birdy I had to make mine! … Where will this yellow madness end? I can’t really say, but it does have me a little concerned about what may be next. Will I begin obsessing over all things purple or green at some point in the future?
One thing this shows me is that maybe we never really know ourselves … or at the very least understand where our colour preferences will take us. What’s your current colour obsession?
