Ray of Sunshine: Bold & Uplifting Yellow Lighting

Guess how much rain we got in Seattle last week? More than 3 inches. It was a wet Thanksgiving, and it made me want to light candles, put on my slippers, and bake cookies. During one of the downpours, I unearthed a very mod, very bright yellow lamp stashed in our basement that I scored for $12 a year ago. This pendant light may have to make an appearance in our house this winter -- it's like a ray of sunshine, and it'll brighten up any gloomy day.

Here's a sampling of bold yellow lighting from around the web, including a simple, cheerful lamp from IKEA (image #8) and an elasticized fabric wonder that looks like a flower (image #2).
