I Spy... some GREEN!

Hello my friends! Cead mile failte! (that's Gaelic for a hundred thousand welcomes, Gaelic is the oldest language in Ireland) We are going to take a break from the house tour and get ready for St. Patrick's Day by showing a little bit o' green. This makes me happy because green is my favorite color so I went around the house to see how much green I could "spy with my little eye" and I actually found a little more then I thought I would. So let me share with you what I came up with.

I spy a postcard...
I collect antique postcards and this is my favorite for St. Pat's day, so I have it displayed on a little brass easel. Isn't she gorgeous?! It is postmarked 1910.



I spy a wee little o' man with a green hat holding a shamrock...
and I spy some gold...


I spy a green lamp globe...


I spy a green plate with three beauties abounding...


Now you are going to get a little sneak peek into the dining room before the actual tour of that room. ;)    So, I spy a Victorian art glass pitcher and 4 tumblers, with enameled decorations... (Only two of the four  tumblers actually match the pitcher. The other tumblers you are seeing are a reflection in the mirror of this cabinet.)



I spy a pressed glass Colorado pattern cup... early 1900's. Has etched initials on it.



I spy an Imperial Crown forget me not plate and a Limoges bird plate..


I spy a jardiniere of green... notice the open mouthed lion heads gracing the sides (and a little bit of paint loss). I wish I had the matching pedestal for this one!



I spy a parlor chair of green velvet... (I know...at first glance the color looks a little horrid, but it actually goes quite nicely with my bedding AND remember, I will not get it reupholstered!!!! lol



I spy a ladies hat with green ostrich feathers...


I spy in its holder a beautiful green hatpin...


AND I spy a little Yorkie dog in green...her preference is to dress all girly so she is not at all thrilled to be sporting a basketball jersey, but that is the only green we have for her. I didn't even have a pretty bow to match, awww...


Well that is it for now, this St. Patrick's Day may you discover your "pot of gold" at the end of  the rainbow.
With much happiness...
