My yellow paint swatches in an IKEA frame

I love paint swatches. Every time I get to Bunnings, I collect paint swatches (so now I have a huge pile of the same colours.. heh!).

I love the colours that paint manufacturers give to their paints. I find them so evocative and creative. What great fun it would be to be paid to peer into a can of paint and then bestow it with a name. ‘Daffodils on Fire’ would be a yellowy-orange.

We braved Ikea last weekend and picked up a yellow frame among other things. Their yellow is a happy shade, not at all pale and lack lustre.

Got all crafty and finally got a project done that I’ve wanted to do for a long time for my yellow office wall.

Poppy & Summertime

Poppy was a name of a yellow. So is Summertime. But BOTH!? That’s definitely a winner name for a yellow swatch!
