We've had a few dramas this week,
so in the spirit of the blog I am focussing on the sunshiny colour YELLOW!
Yellow, the colour many women, including my mother, disliked wearing ..
Her daughter, on the other hand, needs a yellow bag in every size,
and a string of vintage beads as well.
Mr Cardinal's mother owned this sweet trio of jugs.
They are very old and the middle one is crazed, but who could throw it away and break up the set?
I bought this sheer black and yellow fabric some time ago.
The time seems right to make up a cool floaty shirt from
|French Fashion Designers paper dolls 1900-1950 by Tom Tierney|
I love these old fashions from the 1920s -
on left by the Boue Sisters, an Afternoon lingerie gown
(!? .. for receiving special visitors?)
and on right, by Sonia Delaunay, 1926, an abstract-pattern coat,
rich with touches of yellow.
Sonia was a gorgeous artist from Russia,
working in Paris in the early 20th century and influenced by Cubism.
She painted, designed fashion and textiles, stage sets, graphics, in a vibrant geometric abstract style.
I hope your weekend was sunshiny and Mellow yellow!
