The Wearing Of The Green


Happy St. Paddy's Day to all my dear friends! Don't forget to go and visit Miss Beverly for all the blogs celebrating Pink And Green! It should be a blast!

I don't have much green in my home, but there are some touches as there are many hues that I just love like the green hubby painted this screen ... and of course the beautiful green leaves of the plant...

A Vintage plate with a band of soft green....

This hand blown Venetian glass apple was my mothers. It has many flecks of real gold and is so pretty with the light streamng through....

More pretty green courtesy of Mother Nature...

And this was courtesy of Mother Nature this morning...6 more inches!




A teeny artichoke teapot that I have had for years....


And a pretty little plate I found at the Salvation Army for .50. I was so delighted and surprised it was still there.

Well...these are my greens and I can hardly wait to see all of yours...

Hi Jil, I can't believe you had another 6 inches When will it stop? Your green rimmed dishes are gorgeous-I keep looking in Goodwill for a find like that. I won't give up. Linda

Love your hand blown glass ball, the little artichoke tea pot and the rose plate with green rim. I was on vacation and did not think about "green" but do have a lovely post about a stunning pink victorian home. Blessings

Hi Jil,
We haven't had much snow all week, thank goodness! Love the screen! Your china plates are gorgeous and so is the glass ball that belonged to your mother! The artichoke teapot is adorable too. Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Isn't it funny when we think we don't have much of a particular color they appear everywhere. Loved all your greens especially that glass apple.

Hi Jil, wow you are really getting dumped on. I can't believe you got another 6 inches of the white stuff. We are in the 80's here and so it's safe to say, spring has sprung.
I can't believe someone actually tossed out that plate. It's so pretty and looks hand painted. It's all very pretty and I like the screen too. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Happy Pink Jil Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I love your pink and greens. That apple is so pretty, and I love the plate. That artichoke teapot is the sweetest thing. I would love a cup of tea, no sugar and just a spot of lemon please.

Such a beautiful share sweet friend. I hope you have a beautiful Pink Saturday and a magical St. Patty's Day.

Many country hugs and much love, Sherry

You found plenty of great greens and pinks for today. I am sorry you woke up to that kind of day. We are under a drought here, so we could use moisture anyway we could get it.
