Green Day

Green is the color of joy, hope and youth. It symbolizes spring and new life. It can be very calming (think hospital walls) or the color of a fiesta (like lime green with red and yellow). I don't think about the negative connotation of green very often, but there is the green eyed monster (jealousy) and sickness (turning green).

It is surprising how much green is in my home.

This photo includes my Elizabeth Arden "Green Tea" Scent Spray and my funky Caribbean amber earrings - I love their pale yellow green color.

This is a Johnson Brothers teapot from England. I like the different shape of the spout and lid.

This vintage teapot looks somewhat blue in the picture, but it is really a pale minty green.

I guess it's no surprise just how many of the books in my tea library featured green.

This was a pretty window that I photographed while walking around in Charleston, SC. There are so many gorgeous gardens there.

Here is another block from my first quilt. Two of the nine blocks in the quilt are green.
Maybe I'll get back on track with my walking program and enjoy all the lovely shades of green in the neighborhood.

Count me in on those who live the shape of that lid and spout too! Cute. The window in SC makes me want to peek inside! :)

Hootie said...

Surly you could tell I meant LOVE, not live. Silly me! :)

Hootie said...

Now I have the giggles! Surely, you realize I meant SURELY and NOT surly! :)

I think I need a nap!

Steph said...

Hootie, now you're giving me the giggles. I didn't notice the typos and just read what you meant and not what you typed.

Love green. I wish I could wear it. I am getting ready to paint my office sage green, I hope I don't look sick when I am in there.

What GREAT photos! (I think I checked in too early yesterday and forgot to go back.) Especially love the earrings, the teapots, the books (very clever to think of books), the quilt block. And I think your Johnson Brothers spout is one designed to be "dripless," isn't it? Seems I read that somewhere ... in a book, no doubt! Nice job!

Thanks for viewing my slide show today on Delights of the Heart. I don't know your email; so I am answering here. The music was added by the program I used to do the slideshow. It said it was Cannonball Adderley, Sounds for Sid. I liked it too.

I just love all your green!

The photo of the ornamental iron work window was so beautiful, especially surrounded by the ivy.
Teapots and cups...can never have too many.
I'm liking the various hues of green in fresh florals arrangements that seem to be popping up in many tablescapes.

The yellow torsade stemed glass would make a delicate vase.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
