De Rebus Viridibus

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not Irish, but I thought I'd take this opportunity to celebrate this my favorite color with some images of green things spotted in my home. (Thanks to Laine de Bergère for the idea).

My new favorite dress...(thanks, Mom).


Apple pincushion...


A bottle of green soju I took home from a bar...(with my Jonathan Frakes autograph...a prized possession even though he misspelled my name).


A Singaporean thermos...


New yarn from Stitches...


Greek dictionary, loved almost to death...


Another Greek dictionary aside Longus...


Bowls and plates...


Dish towels...


Potholders...(many a friend teased about my all-green Crate and Barrel wedding registry).


Tonight's dessert.


More green to covet: Barefoot Rooster's bolero and kitchen, Philigry's new cardigan.

I love (the) green! And you are a classics scholar! Latin was my world in high school, though somehow I didn't continue it once I got to collage. Arma virumque cano...

Squee! I am honoured to be linked. Thank you my dear. Green is definitely a beautiful colour. It deserves its own holiday. I enjoyed your post. I too am a dico chick. Dictionaries are a passion. Mine are French yours are Greek. That's so cool. A. xx

okay, so i'm going to poke fun: you're a trekkie working at nasa?!? oh, hilary, you are too awesome for words!

Philigry said...

oh, i love all the green! especially the dress. thanks for the link to my blog...
i am knitting away on my drops jacket. did yours seem like it might be a bit big around the neck line. mine isn't too bad, and i am hoping that after i pick up for the collar it will get better....just wanted your opinion.

What a great post! I love this idea. You've got some great green in the house (all green registry - that's an excellent choice!)

Some of those green books look awfully familiar, esp. the green and yellow commentaries!
