THE LAMP!

THE LAMP!

It’s Day 118 of the 120 Days of Crayola Challenge! Wow, we are coming closer to the end! Today the color is Yellow! My photo for Yellow was taken in London at the St Ermin’s Hotel, situated in the heart of Westminster. What a fabulous and convenient spot to stay in to explore London! They even have bees! This unique lamp was in the lobby of the hotel! Now This is a lamp!

Yellow has been in the Crayola Collection from the beginning in 1903. It is also known as Sunshine Yellow in the “So Big” set, World Wide Web Yellow in the “Techno Brite” series, and both Starlight Yellow and Sunfish Yellow in the “Discovery” series. In the Hallmark “Tales of a Tooth Fairy” set it is called Cheesy Yellow and Yellow Brick Road, the color for Kansas, in the “State Crayon Collection.”  In the “110th Anniversary” set it is named Sunny Side Up!

Crayola Beaver

Crayola Beaver

Beaver was introduced into the Crayola color line in 1998.

It is the color of the fur of a beaver. The first recorded use of beaver as a color name in English was in 1705.

To me, Beaver, represents multiple shades of brown! I waited FOREVER patiently to get a shot of that stork on the cottage!  I also loved the many brown shades in the photo of the photo of Windsor Castle!
