I can't believe I missed posting a scrappy yellow house for last week's Rainbow Scrap Challenge! Dear Husband and I had undertaken a rather extensive painting challenge (photos soon) and the day slipped away before I knew it. Happily, I already had a scrappy house ready for last week, so this week I have two houses to share!
The yellow floral fabric for this house has been in my stash for as long as I can remember. There are only scraps of it left, so I thought a summery, flowery house would be a great way to preserve the last of the fabric.
In the same spirit - I love this bungalow-style home with its cheerful yellow color, Bahama shutters and tropical plants!
I was completely oblivious to the fact I had made two flowered houses until I took pictures of them this morning! This fabric leans a little more toward gold, but still makes a happy, scrappy house. The chimney scraps were left-overs from appliqued sunflowers.
I took this picture one January morning. The sunlight doesn't do justice to the yellow color of the house, but I wanted a good example of this particular house style to share. This is what is known locally as a "camelback". It's a shotgun type house with a second floor set on the back of the house.
I also added a few yellow leader-ender spools to the growing collection. There's not a lot of yellow in my scrap collection, so I may find myself reaching into the gold scraps before the month is over.
