That PERFECT green...

I sometimes call it that..."Martha Stewart Green"...the color of the old "Fire king" dishes and mugs.

I love that green and it's becoming harder to find these days....

I found this little compote in a Petoskey resale shop... Looks like I'm not the only one who likes it...


everyone wants to get in on the act...

Not the same green but the theme....BEACH....a keeper!

Bunny and Sue at the beach...we're on the second chapter, the Grands and I.

Ahhh! the days when little boys wore "Maryjanes!"...can you imagine.



  1. I love that old book! The graphics are beautiful, aren't they? And I really like the green compote(?)..It always reminds me of the old Jadite color...perfect! xo Diana

  2. I just love the cover of that old book and it brings back lovely memories!
    I do remember little boys wearing Maryjanes and actually in Montreal where I was raised there are still many people who put their little boys in Maryjanes during the summer! Very European and cute!
    Have a great "beachy" day Kathy!

  3. I'd say your little ones are dressed as cute..I like that green too:) Cute book..

  4. You're right - the perfect shade of greenQ


  5. Ah yes ! I love that green , so much so I painted my kitchen walls that color. And I keep my eyes open for unusual Fire King and Jadite pieces . It brings back the feeling of another time.

  6. This is my favorite color ever. LOVE IT!

    I hope to actually own a piece of it someday!

  9. Hello,
    I visited your blog today, and I thought it was so refreshing and pretty. Your photos are lovely. I love the old keys on the side bar. I collect old keys, so they caught my eye. The black and white purse is adorable. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would really enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your creative, wonderful ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
