I Spy Something…Green

by Sherry Riter in Decorating,Motivation

Green is a pretty color associated with outdoorsy stress-free decor, prosperity, envy/jealousy, being sick, having little to no experience, being earth-friendly, health in plants, decay, and evil.

I thought I would share some green things today for your viewing pleasure and give a few examples of how the green things have affected my life.

  • green decor: I’ve never used green as a decorating color, but my sister’s home has pretty hunter green and burgundy.
  • green prosperity: I’m rich with family, but not dollars…LOL
  • green with envy and jealousy: I’m a little jealous and I only envy anyone occasionally because I can’t change what I can’t change!
  • sickness: Wow, when I get sick, I usually get really sick and I’m a big wimp.
  • green without experience: I don’t like things to change. I’m a creature of habit and find peace in the same old things day after day. I guess you could say I’m boring that way.
  • earth-friendly green: I don’t drive an electric car; I love the air conditioner; I hate camping and bugs; I like long, hot showers…does that cancel me out of the earth-friendly category?
  • healthy green plants: Oh! So that is the color of a healthy plant! My plants, if I ever get any, always are varying shades of dying brown.
  • green decay: I’m a professional refrigerator-mold-growing-home-scientist.
  • evil: I do not like to be around evil, wicked people or in those kinds of situations. I am extremely uncomfortable if I have to associate with blatant evil. I always think about the puff of green smoke that the witch on the Wizard of Oz created when she disappeared!

The future belongs to
those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Glad Kermie made his way into your collage! It's not, as we know, easy being green.

Oooh, I love green. The walls in my living room, dining room, and hall are painted an awesome shade of green.

Green is good! I've got a green thumb…it's a very pale green but getting more vibrant year after year.
I love the post and most things green. Especially hubby's peepers:)

My younger daughter's favorite color is green. I understand that money is the color of green, and the canvas of God's world. That's all cool. What boggles my mind is that this child absolutely hates all vegetables, especially green ones. So how can it really be her favorite color? LOL
