Green Green


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, I'm seeming to just love everything green at the moment.
The beautiful green in the lawn, the green leaves on my trees and in this little kitchen vignette!


 I'm featuring this gorgeous green pitcher that was my mothers.
I'm taking care of it for her.
She had it poked on top of her kitchen cabinets and I've always admired it so I've brought it down to eye level. Maybe not your eye level, Dear Ones, but I'm under 5 feet tall so this works for me!

 Well, I decided I'd try to find out about this pitcher and found this on Ebay! 
Isn't that just amazing? 
Now I apologize, as I've tried to go back and find the source and I couldn't.
Maybe someone has bought it.
Anyway, it's a treasure to me even without the glasses.

 Moving on with my vignette.
You must know if it's in my kitchen, there's probably a Rooster poked in somewhere.
This is a glass one and the top part comes off.
He's a looker, isn't he?

Love my little green platter there in the background.
There's rabbits on the edges but they work well with Roosters.
I just had to poke in my swirly Jadeite bowl filled will lemons.
I'm on the lookout for another one.

I wish you all a wonderful week!

Oh, I wanted to thank Cindy for feauturing my post on The Finn from last week's party!
Thank you, sweet Cindy

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Green Green

Green, green,
It's green they say,
On the far side of the hill.
Green, green,
I'm going away to where
The grass is greener still.

A-well, I told my mama
On the day I was born,
Don't you cry
When you see I'm gone.

You know there ain't no woman
Gonna settle me down.
I just gotta be traveling on,
A-singing...

Nah, there ain't nobody
In this whole wide world
Gonna tell me how to spend my time.
I'm just a good loving rambling man,
Say, buddy, can you spare me a dime?
Hear me crying, it's a...  

 Yeah, I don't care
When the sun goes down,
Where I lay my weary head.
Green, green valley or rocky road,
It's there I'm gonna make my bed.
Easy, now... 

Green, green,
It's green they say,
On the far side of the hill.
Green, green,
I'm going away to where
The grass is greener still.

  12. sheila, today on onekingslane.com or jossandmain.com (can't remember which) I saw some pretty dishes with a rooster embossed in the center. They came in yellow and were so pretty but alas, I have fairly new yellow dishes. Take a look. You may be tempted.

  14. Shelia,
    What an 'uplifting' post!!!
    It is GREEN here on the Prairie for the first time in two years, also!!!
    I've an idea for a new cupboard display, but don't want to remove all the GREEN, just yet!!!
    Thanks for sharing all your lovely green in such an amazing vignette!!!
    Happy hunting for another green swirl bowl, dear friend!!!
    Fondly,

  21. Very pretty! I go through phases where everything I buy is a certain color. I do it unconsciously, then will notice later! Love that you are able to put some of your Mama's stuff on display in your home. She has some beautiful treasures!

  23. Beautiful vignette, Shelia. Things are looking green after our rain this weekend. '-)

  24. I loved that song! I remember it well!
    Green! It was always my favorite color and my carpet is a soft moss green throughout our home. Green in every single room. Mosser glass has the most gorgeous green things. It's sort of a mix of Jade and the green of your pitcher. My daughter has it in her kitchen.
    I will keep my eyes open for any jadite items while going to the garage sales and if find something I will just snatch it up for you!
    Hugs,
    Mona

  25. I am loving your greens, Shelia. AND they are that vibrant emerald green that is THE COLOR this year. That pitcher is a REAL treasure- xo Diana

  26. Hello Shelia, What a pretty vignette! Don't you love it when you find out something you have is so valuable? The pitcher is gorgeous, I have a thing for pitchers, if I had space I'd have a zillion of them. But yours is valuable because it was your mothers, especially. First time visiting you, think I'll look around awhile. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin

  27. Love that green pitcher. I would look so great at Christmas time with red carnations.

  28. I've heard this emerald/rich green is the Pantone "Color of the Year" -- look for it in all the stores this year as you match your wardrobe to your absolutely beautiful collection!
