I Love Green

Green has become my new favorite color. 
It all started with this discount vase.  I love it.  I bought it.
It matched nothing I owned (at the time.)

I say nothing.  Most of my house is done in a mossy gray/green. 
Nothing bright and potentially limey.

Next I found this pear, also discounted for my new bookshelves.

Well, it looked funny all alone.  I added a pair of fleur de lis book ends.
They were originally black, but the Ivy Green Krylon came in handy.
After the book ends was this neat little wooden bird. 
I love birds.

After finishing my library, I needed a chair.
After many, MANY internet searches, price checks, and phone calls,
I got one.
It is the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in.
It needed pillows.  Enter my green...again.
This time, they were napkins from Target repurposed into pillows.
The table square is a table cloth, also Target, that yielded
enough fabric for a square and to recover my desk chair.
Ahhh, green.

Now the real reason for this post.
Meet my new friend.

He's been hanging out on my (also ivy green) patio furniture.
He's tiny, tiny, tiny - about 3 inches long and maybe
as big around as a pencil at the largest part of his body.
My better half says my cat will eat him and
that I should catch him (as if I could) and put him on a tree in the woods. 
I think I'm going to let him live dangerously. 
Currently, we play "I Spy" where he hids and I try to find him.
(It doesn't take much to entertain me!)

And again, I do love green!
