Collecting Colour : January is Yellow

The holiday slideshow will continue shortly, but I had to sneak this post in as there's only a bit over 6 hours left of January... So, without further ado, introducing Collecting Colour!  Each month I'm going to pick a colour, curate a collection of things lying about the house and photograph it.  Hurrah!  

Are you excited?  I am!  And if you are excited you're welcome to join in too - you can follow along with my monthly colour picks, or you can pick your own, either way is ACE!  And I promise for the next eleven months I'll do the post a bit earlier (the idea only came to me at four yesterday morning - thank you jet lag!). 

If you join in please let me know - tweet me (@ejorpin) or leave a link in a comment below.  Oh, and do grab the button over on the side bar if you like!

January is yellow because yellow is bright and sunny and happy, and I am a little bit (okay, a lot) over the cold, dry Seoul winter.  What can you spy in January's collection?



UPDATE! I've added a link up tool, so if you do participate (on Flickr or your blog or Instagram or anywhere really!) add your link for January below.  Hurrah!

  1. What a fabulous idea! I love it and starting with yellow is so bright and refreshing (especially when we're in the middle of winter). :)

    You collection is beautiful and your little teacup is adorable. I like the little bits of lego too!

    I'd love to take part if you'll have me.

  4. This is a great idea! I'm excited about seeing your colour selection each month. I'll try to pull something together today. Are you thinking of posting a link on your post to other people who are participating? I'll likely toss it up on Flickr and show you a link in the comments. Yey! Fun, fun. Now to procure some yellow bits...
