Monday once again, and time for Drowsey Monkey to host Mellow Yellow Monday.
Thank you, Drowsey Monkey. This is fun.
Today I have pictures of yellow houses. There are so many of them in our area, and here is a small sampling. First is one I think is beautiful.
Next is another lovely one - way out of my price range, I'm sure, up near the bay.
There is a whole row of them down in Cape May. They are now shops, with apartments above. Many years ago, I am told they existed as slave quarters. Sad, but true.
And so long as we are in Cape May, here is one of the old Victorians in that town, now a bed and breakfast.

What a great idea for photographing yellow!
My own house is yellow. We repainted it a few years back from a brighter yellow to a more buttery, soft yellow. It's perfect.
And one of my favorite houses is on my commute to work each day: a large brick colonial, which is painted yellow and has white trim.
These are fabulous. I love the colors of the last one. They're great with the yellows.
Great shots of lovely houses. The nice thing about yellow is that they don't fade very much like blue does.
Love the yellow houses. Hmmm may consider painting mine yellow, but don't think the neighborhood association would approve.
Have a wonderful week.
I love those yellow houses! My house is yellow too. One of these days I may post it for MYM.
Yes something very lovely about wooden yellow homes. Not something we see a lot of here.
best wishes & happy MYM
These are beautiful houses, all of them. I always have thought that a "Mellow Yellow" house is a great color. Very uplifting. You have great looking houses in your area!
Those are some lovely houses ...
I'm thinking of painting mine yellow.... as it is such a cheerful colour..
I photographed yellow cars for mine ... both would go well with these houses :-)
Sweet collection of buildings
My post is here:
I sure would LOVE to browse in the first shop!
I think your pictures are lovely. Yellow homes are very inviting, cheery and warm. Lisa
Lovely houses - thanks for sharing :)
I enjoyed all your yellow house photos today. They're few and far between where I live ;--)
Hugs and blessings,
each one is beautiful
I love the house with the white deck and what seems like a gazebo perched in the air!
What marvelous shots! I love the yellow houses and what a great idea that is for Mellow Yellow and your choices are really beautiful. Have a great week, Bobbie!
bobbie, I love these very decorative houses. They are lovely! :) I haven't been down in Cape May in a long time! :)
I've always been partial to Victorian homes. However, this time I think I like the first house the best. All are inviting!
Wonderful architecture!. Would love to take a boo around that antiques shop, too!
Cheery yellows all .. and I have to wonder how true the story about slave quarters is .. first, NJ is not a Southern state, second, the civil war was over in 1865 and those buildings dont look over 100 yrs old .. so I am thinking not so much truth in that... OTOH maybe I am wrong. LOL ...
Oh, Deborah, there were lots of slaves in NJ, at least in our area. That particular row may or may not have really been slave quarters, but I could show you lots of places that were.One small section of the beach was even called the "blackberry patch", and they were only allowed to sit in the balcony in the old Cold Spring Church. I have black friends who can still tell stories that have been handed down.
I love your photos. The yellow Antique house say "come in and spend lots of money" at least that is what I'm hearing.
