I know... I know....
Emerald is the color of the year for 2013.
I haven't talked about the color of the year this year because I really didn't have anything to
say about it except..."Hey, Emerald is the color of the year."
Today at work, Sarah said to me -
"If I hear one more person say to me that Pantone's Color of the Year is Emerald, I'm going to puke."
"I know it's the color of the year. It's March. Of course I know it's the color of the year!"
That was Sarah speaking, not me...she takes her decorating serious and we get our
decorating fix discussing decor with each other at work.
Nobody else there cares much about it.
They don't even know that Emerald is the color of the year...nor do they know what Pantone is.
Granted they do not care.
They have families and husbands and other things to use their brain cells retaining.
Sarah and I do not.
Anyway...she is tired of talking about Emerald being the color of the year.
And this coming from a person who loves green.
I don't love green.
I'll never have a major thing in my house that is green.
(famous last words)
Although there was quite a bit of green in my Easter Mantel decor.
Although I will admit that room above is quite appealing and could make me change my mind...maybe.
Ok, this room, definitely. I don't mind a stripe of green mixed with blues and yellows.
And that green dresser in the distance?
Oh...yeah....I love that.
Oh...and Pam's buffet she recently redid in Emerald sure is elegant and gorgeous....
that might sway me too.
Still when I think of lots of green in a room...my mind goes to lots of green in
the surrounding outdoors.
Nothing better than walls of nature's emerald.
Isn't this space magical? I'd like to spend Easter there.
Another lovely garden room surrounded in lush green.
Here the green comes into the room.
Have you added Emerald to your spaces this year or are you ignoring it?
I'm getting excited about planting stuff outside...spring is here and soon it will be warm enough.
This past week I've had a guest staying with me.
My Aunt's little longhaired dachshund, Kate.
My Aunt took ill last week and was admitted to the hospital.
We feared at first that she might be there awhile but she made a remarkable recovery and
will possibly be getting out tomorrow.
She'd asked me to watch Kate while she was away from home.
I have to say...she was the best house guest ever!
Not one bit of trouble.
I doubt my own dogs would be as good.
Really, she could just stay here for good and I would not mind one bit.
Good little Kate.
Have a great Friday and a great weekend!
