Cream + Sugar {Green}

3/15/2012

Today the honorary color is green (of course), thanks St. Patrick! These were my Oma's, didn't she have some amazing things? They are completely imperfect, but I adore them, and their vibrant shade of green. A few days ago I re-discovered them tucked away in a cabinet. I'm pretty sure that I initially thought: "This green is SO...green! But now that color is the new trend I have jumped on board in a major way and am happy to have them house my cream and sugar in the morning.

P.S. If they look familiar they were in my Color Collective post earlier this week!

Green is my favorite color so I love this week's picture! What a fun shade of green! I love that they were your Oma's so they're special in that sense, but that it's always a color that is totally in right now :)

I love this! The fact that they have special meaning to you makes them even more beautiful. Don't you just love it when you can use something that your grandparents used?
