GaGa for GREEN

Happy Earth Day everyone! It is a beautiful Spring day here in CT. Robins chirping, tulips blooming, my little monsters laughing,screaming and causing raucus in the yard. One of the things I love most about Spring is watching the leaves grow on the trees. This year they seemed to bud quicker than in the past- but that could be because I was so eager for Winter to be over anything I saw could have been a sign of Spring! Anyways, green is not usually one of my favorite colors- but this year I seem to be drawn to it. So in celebration of Earth Day- here is some Green Inspiration...

For the HOME

I would love either- or both of these for my kitchen... however, currently it is bright RED. So I think it would be a bit distracting.

I could, however, paint my kitchen GREEN!

No seriously.

I saw this and now I want a green kitchen. I know that some of you may think it's too bright. It's styled nicely here, but not my style. Think about how fabulous this bold color would look with white chippy shelves (probably not a good description of a kitchen object) and antique cabinets filled with vintage china and silver. It would be... well- heavenly. Oh and how lovely it would be in the winter when it's dark and dreary out... off to the paint store. ;-)


There is just something about pyrex that says "I'm going to eat some yummy deliciousness and then curl up in my big comfy bathrobe and fuzzy slippers and watch some tv!"


This is a great French vintage fashion ad.

How cute is this little mod clutch?!?!?! I so need this- in green, and every other color it was made in.

And accessorize the accessory...
... with this lovely little gem.

Or this one!

And yes- I can see me now...

Lots of pearls, a white tank top, a couple of way too big bangles, lightly destroyed denim
and a pair of sweet Apple Green Cons.
Oh yeah! Blow dry some wings into my really big hair and I will so be stylin'!
 C'mon ladies... you know what I'm talking about.

Did I ever tell you about the time I won a Cyndi Lauper contest? Another day...

Back to GREEN!

Who doesn't need a pair of GREEN cheetah print platform shoes????

Just for FUN!
Oh how I wish my mom, my girls and I had matching motorized scooters.
For some strange reason the song that is playing in my head is the one from Wizard of Oz.
Dada dadan da na nana

Many questions about this one...

...but I will ask two.
1. Did they allow this at Westminster?
2. Did her owner wear the cheetah platforms?

And last but surely not least...
for our FREEDOM.

Thank you to our veterans and our enlisted troops!!!
You are in our thoughts and prayers for a safe return home!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the GREEN!
