august is yellow





I always think of August as yellow. Yellow sun, yellow flowers. I found this Mexican embroidered dress at the flea market. It fits perfectly, after hemming it a bit. The green necklace is from somewhere in Africa, made out of recycled paper. The bowl was found at the flea market as well. It says Italia on the bottom. I just like the stripes.

Jill, these are beautiful stills. I love the composition. I have to admit that the combination of yellow and green is wonderful. It truly does say August to me as well. I love that green necklace.

Hi Ladies! Thanks for sharing my flea market finds with me. I can't wait for an opportunity to wear my new dress, as for the necklace and bowl, I'm using them often already! And thanks, as always for your kind comments on the photos :) Hope you all are having a nice week.

Yeah, I agree, august is defenitely yellow. Although I seldom wear yellow myself I too think of August as a yellow month. Funny, I hadn't realized until now, ha, ha...
