Hi Linda,
I have been admiring the green plate on your header and kinda figured that green glassware was one of your favorite collectibles. You have so many lovely pieces.

Shopping with you would be a blast!

I love the way you group photos. I'd love for you to do a video of your lovely home one day so we could pretend we're there with you. Things always look so beautiful and homey.

P.S. Awesome Crazy Daisy. I can't wait for you to post on the Pyrex Collective!

Debbie said...

Well Linda this summer green has been one of my favorite accent colors. I sure could use some of your dishes, glasses, accessories...seems you have stock piles of different color...especially after your yard sale weekend.

Sarah said...

Linda, this is a fabulous group of vintage greens. You have some awesome pieces. Thanks for sharing all of these with us. There are going to be a lot of viewers "green" with envy! ~ Sarah

Chatty Crone said...

LOVE your greens. I think that plate - the one made so differently - is kind of different.

Hey - had a great time today - I love the Lady in the Red Coat! lol

I love that elf but all your greens make me green with envy! LOL! I do love green and you have some classic pieces. Thanks Linda! Hugs Anne

P. said...

I love all your green things! I bought a covered casserole just like that Pyrex above this past weekend. Unfortunately, what I thought I could surface clean turns out was beyond that. But I'll still use it because I can't wreck it any more!

PERMANENT POSIES said...

I love vintage anything....particularly green stuff. Great photos!

Pondside said...

We know that elf is special to you! I like the glazed pieces, especially the dark ones - they have such depth.

My name is PJ. said...

This time I had to laugh at myself, Linda. With every photo I gasped and said "oh!"...then thought - remember this one for the comments. I got to the bottom of the post and they were all sooooooooo beautiful. I did love the first ceramic green plate and the snazzy textured green teapot a lot though!

My name is PJ. said...

Seriously, what I'd love to do is come shopping at your house...and I don't say that to many people. :)

The Lazy Peacock said...

I really love your green planters.
The green catches my eyes !
Have a nice day!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Good Morning, Linda! Love all of your green today. My aunt had glasses very similar to some you showed, and they always remind me of my cousins. :-)

Checking in from my blog break and hoping to be blogging again after the first of September. Lots going on here demanding attention, but I hope to tame the beast. LOL! Miss you...

XO,

Sheila :-)
