A Week Of Bookish Colour: Yellow

Yellow Books

It’s YELLOW day in A Week Of Bookish Colour! Oh hurrah! When I looked up the feels that yellow brings, I found out that optimism, confidence, self-esteem, extraversion, emotional strength, friendliness and creativity were tip-top of the list.

My old house in Fitzroy was a former gallery and one of the rooms had been completely sealed up to create the sort ofΒ artificially-lit box that art lovers apparently adore.

We called it ‘the tomb’.

When we moved in, we unsealed the windows and door, cut a hole in one of the dividing walls to open it up a bit – and painted the room bright yellow. It was much better – although still VERY COLD due to no heating, (poorly) tiled floor and shadow of towering building next door. StillΒ the yellow provided an instant lift. So that was good.

But to the books. Here are today’s yellow ones. And thanks for all the delightful messages about A Week Of Bookish Colour. You guys are NICE!

May your day be filled with the kind of optimism, confidence, self-esteem, extraversion, emotional strength, friendliness, creativity that yellow apparently heralds! Although not too much of it, because that sounds pur-eeee-tttty exhausting.

Also, may your day feature a cake or pastry. That’s my wish for you.

    Goodness I’m so loving all these book covers – truly inspirational and uplifting. I think I might have to join in in some way, is that alright?
    I have that very Milly Molly Mandy book, oh how I like those books.

    We named our daughter Amelia so we could call her Milly, after Milly-Molly-Mandy and Amelia Bedelia. πŸ™‚

    All the rooms in my house are painted yellow – the colour is called Straw Hat. Except the soft green bedroom walls and the musk stick pink loungeroom walls. But the rest are yellow! It’s not fashionable, but it’s warm and cosy and happy and makes our house feel welcoming.
