Glorious, Glorious Green

June 10, 2013

20130610-083638.jpg It has been a fun month of travel and store busy-ness. It is always interesting to look back at the photos I have taken and see if there is any common theme. The color green is a prevailing theme I am seeing over and over. For those of you who have been to my shops, you know the color green holds a very special place in my heart. The varying shades just seem so energetic and calming all at the same time. Here is what caught my eye on this Monday morning. The above asparagus dish from Tilth in Seattle was a small work of art.

20130610-084252.jpg The packaging and font variety on this new arrival at WK just made me swoon. Plus the shade of green is just spectacular.

All glorious, glorious green in many shapes and sizes.
