This episode is subtitled: ‘Put your sunglasses on…’

I was flicking through my recent posts and was startled by the fact that they’ve been a bit lilac lately. And not only that, my photography skills being what they are, it is a very murky lilac. So this week you have yellow. Get your sunglasses on and prepare to be dazzled by today’s fun tassel key ring.

While Guus played with Blue salvagebox.co.uk - Blue sittingI chose a few items including some beautiful white roses, some gerberas and a big bunch of craspedia. Craspedia is such a useful little flower – it adds a touch of the unusual to a bouquet and it’s obviously very trendy at the moment because it pops up a lot in magazine photographs, its small but bold structure seemingly ideal in a modern house setting. I have some on my Yellow Pinterest board.
