Still Shining with Yellow

It's another Rainbow Scrap Challenge Saturday, and the color for June is yellow.  There will be lots of sunshine-y scrappiness over at Angela's blog, so jump over there if you need a yellow fix!

Sharing a slightly different "house" this week - my sunflower birdcage!
I've written before about my love of sunflowers; this is my little bit of sunflower sunshine at our camp.

I was more inspired by fabric than sunflowers for this week's Happy, Scrappy House.

A few leader ender spools were made this week.

The pile of yellow spools is growing slowly.

Another yellow New Orleans house for your enjoyment!  I spotted this one a few Saturdays ago when I was taking a scenic route home from a Magazine Street shopping trip.  I wasn't able to get a picture at the time, so I turned to my trusty friend Google Street View.
I'm glad I looked at Street View, or I might never have noticed all the houses on that side of the block are architecturally identical!  Unfortunately, they can't all be seen in the picture, but there are 4 houses in a row that have the same basic exterior features.  Wouldn't it be fun to take a peak inside to see the interiors?

  3. Lovely yellow house and spools, I like the yellow and grey! I wouldn't have noticed that the houses were the same until you mentioned it, it's interesting how different colour and shutters disguise the same structure (for me).
