Okay. I shamelessly borrowed this from Centsational Girl, but I couldn’t help myself. Green is my absolute favorite color. In fact, I should not tell you how many items I have just because they are green. I simply cannot help myself. So today, a celebration of my favorite greens: books, boots, home accessories, etc. I hope you enjoy … and don’t forget to wear green.
The green on the exterior walls of this Austin, Texas restaurant? To die for. Is this place not beautiful? And some of the best authentic Mexican food you’ve ever had.
Algae on water at a swamp area at Shangri La Park in Orange, Texas. The park is absolutely gorgeous, and the contractors did everything they could to construct the gardens from recycled goods, including pathways made from recycled cups. It’s a beautiful place. If you’re ever in southeast Texas, it should be on your to-do list.
My backyard in spring/summer.
My green Steve Madden cowboy boots. They were a Christmas gift from my brother after he saw me lusting after them at the Houston Galleria. I walked around all Christmas day in my pajamas and boots.
A green globe light that used to hang in my grandmother’s home. I asked her if I could have it a few years ago because it goes perfectly in my living room, which is black and white with green and sea foam green accents. I love pieces that mean something to me.
Of course, I could go on and on, but I will leave you with those. Just know that I could take pictures all day of… my green kitchen. Green handbags (one in Italian leather), two other pair of green shoes, and on and on and on and on. For now, I will wish you “Slainte” and hope you have a wonderfully green day.
