Gray is the new black

Bright, fresh, just-from-the-garden fruits, veggies and flowers look stunning and oh-so-delicious against... gray. Yes, gray. Janice brought over five gray chairs she found after scouring garage sales. She gave them to me for photographing against my field full of goldenrods. Silently, I thought, "Gray?" What about bright, yellow doors? How about bright, purple chairs? How about bright? After snapping photos for nearly an hour, while dodging mosquitos intent on having me for dinner, I acknowledge Janice's brilliance. (You're brilliant, Janice.) Fresh, just-picked tomatoes, daisies, coneflowers and zinnias look bright, rich and vibrant against the renovated gray chairs.

Yellow Door will be the place for juicy, savory foods of the season framed by a subtle, comfortable setting. Get your name permanently in this setting by sponsoring a chair for simply $100. Your name (or business) will be featured charmingly on a bright yellow cow ear tag attached to a chair. Your sponsored chair will be pulled out, sat in and part of the weekly scene at Yellow Door. Gray is the new black.
