A favorite color

I mentioned yesterday that the whole neutral-tan family isn't a favorite of mine. What is? Besides that Peristyle Brass color in the guest room, the green we used in the kitchen is. It's kind of like old Jadeite or the classic old matte green of a Teco vase.

The other day I finally got a plate hanger and hung up a favorite holiday gift in the favorite color - this gorgeous platter made by a local artist. It's low enough on the kitchen wall that I can reach it because I plan to use it as much as possible!

Thanks, Ken's fam - it is an awesome addition!

Cranes are the best - I'd take a pet crane over a pet pelican any day! Stupid pet pelicans, squawking while I try to sleep.

That platter gives me a major pang of envy. It's fab.

I'm also not a big fan of white or neutral rooms, but I think my kitchen amy end up being white. All my dishes are Jadite (Jane Ray, with lots of Jeanette cannisters and Fireking mixing bowls), so I think painting the room green would be a bit of overkill, and I can't quite come up with any other non-clashing option, LOL!
