Do you have a favourite "something" that has tiptoed into your life unbeknownst to you? For years, I thought my favourite colour was blue with lots of white and silver thrown in for good measure. Then, one day, I realized that green had crept into the mix and that I was continually drawn to that colour when out and about searching for thrifty treasures. It all started with these Salisbury, made in England, bone china pieces of 1 salad plate, 4 bread plates and 2 teacups picked up at a yard sale, all for $1.25:
I loved the apple green band with gold cherries dancing across it. And my favourite flower of the moment is the green hydrangea. However, I noticed that one of the teacups was a bit more used than the other. I had visions of Miss Havisham in her tattered wedding gown drowning her sorrows in her solitary cup of tea. Now that won't do at all! So I dashed to my closet whereupon I discovered more green.
All of which leads me to my first Fashion Meets Housewares post. There is something so uplifting and alluring about the colour green. But not just any green, I prefer a Granny Smith apple green with a blue undertone. It reminds me of Spring, of eternal hope.
