That's all I've seen the past few weeks.
I love autumn. Adore it. It's by far my favorite season. And we have wonderful, beautiful vibrant autumns - for about two weeks every year.
I live in an area where we have winter for about 9 months - spring for 2 weeks, summer for 2.5 months and fall for 2 weeks. I'm only slightly kidding.
The rain is stealing my little slice of autumn. It has been grey and dreary and rainy for almost 3 weeks. We've had little splashes of sunshine here and there, but not nearly enough to satisfy my longing for a crisp, bright, colorful fall day.
So, last week, needing desperately to bring some sunshine into my life - I pulled everything out of our pantry and painted the shelves yellow. It's not quite as deep or bright of a yellow as I pictured - but it helps. It's brighter. It makes me smile. It gives me a little sunshine on grey days.
I'm no photographer, so the pictures don't really capture it well. I think eventually I'll paint the walls a creamy white instead of the beige. But, one thing at a time :D
Sometimes you just need to find - or create - joy in the little every day things.
On a side note - how do you spell grey? I guess grey is a colour, while gray is a color (!) but grey just looks right to me.
