Yellow Buddha

First off, thank you for all the kind words about our basement carpet yesterday. Although I'm not sure the pictures captured it's true ugliness?? I will admit that it might not be as bad as I made it out to be! :) However I will add, that I haven't shown one single person in real life that didn't say "WOW" upon first glance.

On to today's post, a little Yellow Buddha, you may remember I'm on a bit of a yellow kick in the living room right now, as illustrated here and here, not to mistaken with the green and blue kick seen here and here.
 I had this little smiling Buddha (originally bought at Homesense) when I was on my green and blue kick. He was turquoise, which no longer fit. After spraying the candlesticks yellow we had some leftover paint so why not give Buddha a little lift?
I LOVE HIM!! He's one of those weird things that serves no real purpose except to make me laugh!
And this may or may not sound creepy but I LOVE his teeny tiny belly button . . . Yup that definitely sounded creepy! But there is no way in real life his belly button would be that tiny?? It's just so unrealistic!  Although in real life he also wouldn't be yellow . . .  :S or sitting on my side table . . . or have giant earlobes . . . oh well moving on!
I hope our new Mellow Yellow Buddha gave you a bit of a giggle today too!

  3. What a great little pop of yellow! I've never tried spraying anything ceramic before...what type of paint do you use? Any tips? We've just returned from visiting your homeland, British Columbia. Such a wonderful time we had! Victoria is an amazing city!

  7. I just went to HomeGoods that other day and took a picture of a Buddha because it was so adorable! And oddly enough, I blogged about it today! I wan't sure of a place to put him in our house, but now I may have to go back and get him and set him on my side table! Love it!

  11. Alright, I didn't get a chance to comment on your basement carpet, but I didn't think it was all that bad, really. And thanks for the giggle, with your new found Buddha...I needed that today:)

  12. He looks great yellow! What a great combination (happy yellow + a fat buddha) to put a smile on your face! Glad to find a fellow Canuck and a Vancouverite at that! Love your home and your blog!
