Yes, I've chosen yellow. For my nail polish and for my woven labels. A colour that feels very happy!

Karen said...

jennifer + helene + fanja – girls, hope you are doing fine and winter is not being too harsh on you. A sunny smile for you!

tanya – okay, you caught me with the 'bees knees' idiom! I had to look it up! I thought, do I look like a bee? do bees have yellow knees? are bumblebees the next big thing? hahaha Now I get it! I won't forget about it.

love both your nails, and the labels.

Karen said...

agnes Not a yellow fan, huh? You know my approach to yellow has been totally accidental. I found an old yellow vinyl electrical tape in a drawer and since then I have been using it for my crafting projects and as a small colour detail for my shop packages. The original label was supposed to be white with black lettering but when I saw the sample, I didn't like it at all. Then I had this feeling and told the supplier, ok, let's make it yellow. That was yesterday. Later I went to the drugstore and saw the yellow nail polish. Here you are seeing the rest of the story...

Anna Emilia said...

Yes, it made me very happy too (: Funny how some colors make me to think of certain persons immediately. Yellow is for one friend and red is for another.

Pretty dear Karen, dreaming of linens of yours.

WSAKE said...

WOW! i never was a fan of yellow but somehow now i see so many shades and little pops of this colour i really love - your nails and labels are the best so far.
oh - and i can´t tell you how much i adore the scarf/linen!

Dig the yellow nail polish!

katy said...

i love your labels! i was going to make some on natural linen, but now i'm definitely going to consider colors.
and although i'm not the biggest fan of painted nails, I really like the yellow! i might have to give it a go myself :)

shipbuilding said...

the yellow is great but I think I will digress for a moment to say how truly gorgeous your weaving is...that scarf is divine.

Laura said...

Oh, yellow, what a powerful colour! When I'm feeling a bit down, just looking at something yellow makes me feel better.
