True Colours Thursday - Green

It's Thursday again and that means another edition of True Colours with this week featuring GREEN. We found a lot of GREEN in our surroundings. Let's take a look.


^^Mom loves the sweet smell of this vanilla lime candle.

^^And of course we have the lovely African violets
with their lustrous
GREEN foliage.

^^And some more GREEN foliage in this centerpiece on the dining room table.

In the kitchen we found a number of GREEN items.


^^This curious GREEN item is to be used for cooking hard or soft boiled eggs so they don't bump into each other and crack the shells.

^^Some cute little GREEN mugs from our Auntie Colleen in California - she loves to find gifts like this in quaint shops.

^^Southern Living pitcher and serving bowl with some more GREEN accents.

^^Some more GREEN Southern Living pieces.

^^Boy twin's GREEN sippy cup.

In the bathroom we found these two GREEN items:


Two more little biped items:


^^Corduroy in his beautiful GREEN coveralls.

^^Girl twin's doll stroller (for twins, of course)


We took a peek in Mom's jewelry box and found this:

^^A beautiful GREEN ring of jade'

This little fella stuck around from Tuesday's St.Paddy's Day parties
to share in our
GREEN display.

Next we found that this curio cabinet is just overflowing with the "GREEN" of Ireland.

Each of the following pictures will give you a closeup view of Mom's Irish collection, including some treasured Belleek pieces, many of which were handed down to her from her mother.




And, of course, we saved the best for last.


^^Thunder has his own collection of the "GREEN" too.

Hope you enjoyed our pictures. If you want to have some fun with True Colours Thursday, just visit Blue and let her know. Then go for it. Next week's color is BEIGE.

Woos, the OP Pack

Vanilla Lime sounds comforting yet springy.

And the picture of your toys reminded Momma that she never did the post about Bricey killing two wiggly gigglys in an hour.
