One of the things I love about bringing my summer pots indoors 
are the surprises that often occur 

like this wonderful clover that somehow popped up in my fern

just in time for St. Patrick's Day
so this lucky little surprise set me off on a tour through my house looking for
I don't have to look far...
I found some in nearly every room!
that's the paint color of this wall and then I take the time to sit and look at life through this kaleidoscope
and read my green books
and dream of warmer days just ahead

I would love for you to be my guest and come prop yourself up on one of my many 
perfectly chopped pillows
your comfort would be my number one concern!
no stressing around here!

I will imagine this weekend there will be lots and lots of green beer

but in the meantime I'm turning my other habit into art

even though it doesn't seem like it, I like wine and spirits in other colored bottles too

and speaking of happy spirits

I'm beginning to think 

I like


the color
the flavor
the happiness

the life
the zen

no pinching!

I agree, green is a wonderful color, all of its shades. I might be over because I could sure use a stress reliever! :-)

I love every detail, I also love green and I love your images and the "Rosaries" ( I don't know if this is the correct translation) Can you help me?

This post made me smile! I love green, and have it in almost every room. But I've never had green toenail polish! Cute!

Look at you!!.. and you said you couldn't get that bikini body back:);) ..and my feet do not look that sexy! They are in need of a pedicure and they haven't seen anything but a wool sock in months. We are going to Maui next week so I need a spray tan and some polish!!

Love this post .. the green is so festive:) That clover is good luck and I'm thinking some green beer is in order for this weekend:)

Girl, I know you be brewing some of that green hooch in your basement for the weekend. Share it with a brother in the name of St Patrick, Aye!

So many beautiful shades of blue, the green polish!

I adore these images, somehow they all flow together seamlessly, especially the art glass, pottery, religious icons, and your clover surprise.

Thank you so, so much for your kind words of encouragement on my site.
