Seeing Green, But Not Envy

Happy St. Patrick Day! Welcome Through My Back Door where I am seeing green. No, not envy, but green prim goodies. The coffee is on and today we are having Kona. I try to get it when I find it and sometimes it is hard to find. I'm more than happy to share with you, and lets drink out of the green cups today, okay? I am so glad you came by. Are you as excited as I am about the warm days and flowers blooming? I thought winter would never end this year. We had a cold, snowy winter here in the south. I usually enjoy those cold days, but had too many of them to suit me.
Oh well on with the green. I belong to the Primitive Pantry and we did a post your greens last week. I didn't think I had many greens but found a few more than I thought I would. So in honor of St Patrick Day here are a few of my greens.
I am sure you remember these from my stool addiction post.
A green firkin. I found this in Maine a couple of years ago and it is one of my favorites
 My stove board,  I found on the longest yard sale a few years ago and the shamrock dish towels my granddaughter gave me  along with a green cup another granddaughter gave me.
 A picture of my grandparents house, that my cousin Laura did several years ago. It hangs on my wall of things I love.
This Longaberger basket looks blue but it is green. That is all of my green, but I'll show you a couple of things from my friend Carol. Carol loves Peter Rabbit. Closer to Easter we are going on another field trip to her house. It is always a feast for your eyes and you won't want to miss it. If you remember we went in the fall and at Christmas.
I told you she loves Peter Rabbit. I hope you enjoyed a peak into her house.
Well I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful day and are able to share it with those you love. It is my opinion that being with those you love is the real pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Thanks for coming Through My Back Door, where life is good.
