POPs of GREEN

It’s ALL ABOUT GREEN
 House Beautiful 
Says so! 

(and speaking of House Beautiful – oh boy oh boy do I have news for you…
but being the superstitious person I am,
 I have to wait until I know for sure
before I go blabbing!)

I felt a bit more in my element last year when it was
ALL ABOUT PINK!
yes, this was more “in my wheelhouse”. 
I LOVE that phrase, 
though I am not certain of what it means…what is the origin?

…anyway, so tomorrow is St Pattys day and Green is “IN” 
and I have found myself drawn to GREEN,
 touches of it.
But where do you begin when you just want to try a touch of a color?
The easiest way I have found to TRY a color is 
accessories and my favorite is candles!


enter CASPARI
We have a CASPARI store here…

to die…no words…
for “Lesli”!..do not ask me why we have one of the few ones in the US of A. Maybe even the only one! Actually I think I asked once and they happen to be from here, or own UVA or something.JK.
Its like, Paris, London…and Charlottesville!!! I love it!
But anyway, it is a total color fest pretty thing treat to go there…and  they have the absolute BEST candles. So many beautiful colors and not super crazy expensive, like $3 each or something
and they had this amazing green that I wanted to try…
Candles from Caspari!
…and Here are a few more touches of 
GREEN 
I found on a tour of my downstairs…

Green Wire Candlestick from Crate and Barrel




I got some GREEN bowl filler things at TARGET. 
The only problem is…Charlie (the dog) 
thinks they are dog toys and brings them to me…
and very gently… 
very delicately drops them at my feet. 
I just wish I could train him to put them back!


My CALLALILLY painting and the Missoni for Target pillow
which I like better on the green velvet side. The other pillow is Maria Horner..from another GREAT store in Charlottesville called
PATINA.
Inspired by Stray Dog designs!

Slip Lamp from O’Suzannah in Charlottesville…another TO DIE store!

THIS WAS FROM THE OUTDOOR STORE….!
