Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday, sponsored by our good friend Carole, at Carole Knits.  This week?
Ten favorite things that are green. I have a love/hate relationship with green. I love green in my house, I love eating green, I love green around me. I don't wear green, I hate Shamrock Shakes and green beer. But I do have a few favorite green things.

1. This little March Angel. Even though she's not entirely green, she represents St. Patrick's Day, and I got her for my birthday when I was just a little girl. She's come a long way...and so have I. No worse for wear, a few broken parts put back together, and a reminder that I was given life for a purpose.

                                                           2. Vintage green kitchen stuff.

     3. Asparagus and Brussels Sprouts. Dinner last night? Shaved Brussels Sprouts sauteed with pancetta.

                 4. My Journal...for when I can't keep all of my thoughts and creativity inside my head.

                                                                5. My Spring garden.

6. I have a collection of dead women's jewelry...gathered here and there over many years. I never wear green, but I always wear these pins in March. The St. Patty's pin was given to me by a lady at a garage sale because I shared the same birthday as her mother!

7. This green recliner, which was given to us. I swore it was not staying in our house until I realized how stinking comfortable it is for watching television and knitting! And, I like the guy in it, who always looks great in green.

9. Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz...They made it! This happens to be one of my favorite movies. I could sing the entire movie!

"You're out of the woods, You're out of the dark, You're out of the night.Step into the sun, Step into the light."

10. I love ellen j goods...our business that represents re-purposing, recycling, re-using..it's a green way of decorating! And it's what JR and I have done for years. We are building this business together, and sharing our passion for upcycling and decorating with others!


  1. One more time! Nice green list. Happy March Birthday - hope it's a great one. g

  2. Great green list, Happy birthday a bit early.

  3. An inspiring green list! Happy Birthday, too.
    Thinking of your upcycling adventures, I'd love to see how the old camper van turned out. It looked like it had a lot of potential, and you are just the woman to do it!

  4. I don't wear green either, a fact that becomes very obvious when I look through my closet for something to wear for St. Patrick's Day!

  5. I love all thing WIZARD of OZ. Green goodness. I love your brussel sprouts and asparagus.
    I love your statue from your childhood and she's survived!!

    Your list is so fun.
    I want a spring garden....mines under snow right now


I'd love to hear from you! Let's talk!
