Green Day...

Not thaaaaaaaaaat Green Day!

This Green Day...

the Green Day of revelation...

when you figure out that you are such a big LIAR
that more than your pants must be in FIRE!

I've always said, "I don't like green".

Yeeeeeeeees, sireeeee Bob! No green for

Thank you, but no!

So, as I squatted over several boxes of chintz,
sorting, sorting, sorting....

Imagine my shock...and chagrin, as I unwrapped
green after green after green...

Juuuuuuuuust call me Sybil!

Because obviously, one of my multiple personalities
was buying all this stuff on Ebay (I wonder if she left
nice feedback?!)

I know...

Scary, huh??!!

It's ok...you don't have to tell anyone that you
know me!

But I suppose it's time to come out of the closet
and admit...eh, green is not so bad after all ;)

  2. Your Chintz made me Wince...with envy of course! Such beautiful pieces.

    Would you mind dropping me a line and letting me know where on Ebay you are finding these treasures? I would love to expand my collection of dishes to include more Chintz patterned pieces.

    You can just drop me a line into the comments section of my current blog post at www.thevintagevignette.blogspot.comI'm especially interested in the chintz teacup and saucer with the green handle!

  3. Haha your other personality has good taste it's all very pretty! :)

    All the best,

  4. Such pretties! You have a great sense of humor to!


  5. Well at least you've come out of the closet to join the rest of us green loving cottagey types!


  6. I was a timid liker of GREEN as well.

    Then i started purchasing some green tee-shirts or jackets... and every "stinking" time i wore the green i got sooo many complements.

    So, like you ...i am a reluctant green liker. I cant say LOVER yet.


  7. Oh, your chintz is so beautiful! I like everything ~ and the green is lovely. What a great collection!

  8. WELL If you really don't like all the green.......SEND them to me, lol.
    I am a PINK lover but adore your green cups, they are SO pretty!!!!!

  9. I had a very small flat in England and green was the color that tied it together. So having lived with that for 7 years, I'm a bit 'over' green at home.
    But in my wardrobe, I'm suddenly back in the green game and would love to get more!
    Your teacups are very pretty.

  10. I love all your pretty greens!!!

  12. Glad you don't like green. hehehe Those are all lovely!

  13. OOOOOHhhhhh My! Now that you have some fabulous green under your belt..How does it feel? Ha! The Chintz is fabulous! I know what you mean about certain colors...but sometimes they just grab you and there's no turning back! You've been grabbed I think!

  18. Wqw! I just love your green collection. Isn't it funny how green always sneaks into those flower motifs. LOL Yet I too - a professed dis-liker of green have found it creeping into my house as well. It started with the Teal and Aqua's and before I knew it I was displaying green. And though I still will never own a green vehicle I am more comfortable with add green around the house.

  19. what a fabulous collection of "horrendous" green!

  20. I LOVE green and your new collection! So fun!

  21. I don't like to wear green but I sure do like to decorate with it. It goes with everything! (Think Mother Nature.)

I love those green handles...my grandgirl would love them, as well, so I'm on the hunt...love ebay...I have so many that I've purchased there. Please don't put them away!
