Green with Envy

16 Jul

Wow, it feels like forever since I have made a post…eek…it has been a few days!  Thankfully our power came back on after about 2 days in the dark.   It was just enough time to ruin all of our food and make the house hot and sticky =(  We are back to normal again and I have been thinking Green.  Not “re-use, reduce, recycle” Green (however I should probably think about that more often),  just the color Green.

My thoughts of Green started while knitting some Green yarn.  It just happens to be that I was working own my pouf at the time, so here is a sneak peek:

I still have a lot of work to do!

While I was knitting, my Green zebra print purse was sitting next to me.  We have these wonderful stores in Chicago (I think they may have a couple elsewhere) called 1154 Lill Studio where you can custom make your own handbag.   It is such a cute idea; they have tons of options for bags and thousands of fabrics.  It is a little pricey so I only went in there when I scored a groupon to it.  I just loved this green zebra fabric and I thought it would look cute with the watermelon-y pink strap…

It was fun to pick and choose from all the fabric…and even more fun to see what it turns out like =)

After seeing those things I started to think about Green.  I have pretty Green dishes from Crate and Barrel:

Someday my kitchen will be Green and white and black…just like this:


I absolutely love this kitchen.

Here are some other fabulous Green things:

I would never have thought of painting woodwork Green, but it looks so cute!

I have a beautiful sparkly black mixer that reminds me of a bowling ball (that I searched high and low for), that I love, but if I ever lost that 30 lb thing I would get this one.

Now that is a fuzzy Green pillow!

This textured Green pillow is equally as cool as the fuzzy one.

These napkin holders are adorable…I bet you can make something like that with a little thinking!

What a sweet little plate.  This would be cute hung on the wall in a mix of white plates.  They actually make a yellow one that may end up in our dining room.

This pretty little knobs are just begging to go on a pretty white nightstand or dresser.

And lastly:

These are clearly not Green, but they are Gray, and I love them.  Have a great weekend!
