going green

I know the color white is so timeless and perfect for any room to brighten it up, whether it be curtains, pillows, vases or just odds and ends. However, I am more of an ivory color kind of gal. I love how the white looks in homes, and white trinkets are so available these days, but what about ivory trinkets?? They are a little harder to come by, or maybe this is just "not their season." Whatever the case, whenever I see adorable pieces I love in white, I just picture them in ivory and start a mad hunt to find them.

Such as these lovely textured white vessels:





I've done just a little more to the dining room (the big green painting is going to have a drastic make-over soon, meaning the color is going, but this picture had the table and shelves together. And those vases will have flowers in them soon, I hope)



If I could add more of these amazing vases to my green collection, I'd be one happy girl:

It's been such a busy week. I never knew how much time and energy went into the possibility of purchasing your first home could be! Hopefully we'll know more with that over the weekend.


Just a funny little picture to leave you with. My adorably kitty, Tigger, during his bath.


Have a great weekend!!

  6. I love green accents...they are my fav! I am jealous that your cat lets you bathe her. Our cats turns half crazy whenever we try, so we have the mobile pet groomer come by in their little van and clean her up.
