Apple Green Envy and a Spot of Aqualisciousness used to be my favorite.  And before you blue.

But's all about the aqua, and apple green.

You might remember how I spent my last Black Friday at an estate sale and how I literally....and I do mean literally....dreamed about all the aqua milk glass items at this sale.  Really.  I kept waking up the night before the sale worried there wouldn't be any aqualisciousness (yep - made that word up - maybe I can get it added to the OED next year) left before I got there.
I ended up keeping most of the pieces I bought, but the other day, I put this up in my etsy store.
Isn't it beautiful?  LURVE that color!  (I added the cloche just for fun.)

So...where is this all going Sweet Bee?
C'mon - buzz along with me - this is why Worker Bee calls me Sweet Bee - I'm always buzzing about something.   I'll get to the honey, don't you worry.

I just recently pinned this little collection of sweet colors


and I suddenly realized my living room is going in this exact same direction!
Love, love, love my new living room rug!

It's an indoor/outdoor rug from Home Decorator's Collection.
Read about it in HGTV magazine and I just knew I had to have it.

I changed the pillows on these wicker chairs to this apple green velvet.  Got them at World Market.
 Love the tall glass lantern (already had the blue and white candle  - got it at Target years ago) which was a great price at World Market!  Yes, I am totally obsessed with World Market.  Scary obsessed.  You can ask Worker Bee - or on second thought you better not.
Any advice here?  Baby Bee and I were doing manicures in the living room and some polish remover got on our coffee table.  Yikes!  It removed some finish.  How can I fix this?  (I won't tell you how much Worker Bee has buzzed and buzzed about us ruining the coffee table, but I bet you can guess how many times - uh yeah - it happens every time he sees it.)  

 Now I think I need to paint my red heart shaped table.  Any suggestions?  I want to use red as a tiny little accent now.  (I know, I know, how can I leave red?  It was just time dear ones, it was just time.)
So....lots of little projects to go.

Big estate sale this weekend to head out to and I am really hoping it is cool enough to paint some furniture.  I just can't find the energy to paint when it's over 100º.  

Thanks for buzzing by!
I am also dreaming of finding some sort of buffet and doing this with the TV in our living room...
TV on the wall and the globe collection on the buffet.

And I'm linking up to My Romantic Home Show and Tell!


  1. Love your wicker chairs! I'm on the hunt for a new living room chair... Looks like a trip to World Market is in the future.. And where did you find the Aqua couches?? I picked up two Aqua chairs for my bedroom sitting area a couple of years ago from World Market. Love them!

  2. I agree with you! I was always a fan of red but lately I have been enamored with aqua. Love the collection of blue milk glass that you found - also love the item you are selling on etsy.

  3. OMG!!!! I need you to come decorate! LOVE the living room, LOVE it! Mine is so not me....I saw those rugs, I never thought of the apple green! I love the green, aqua, red and a pretty yellow all in the same room....I have got to get some different furniture pieces...:)

  4. Ahh! Too many great things to comment on here! You've done such a good job with decorating. I haven't been to World Market forever. I've been resisting because I keep seeing amazing things on everyones blogs...and I know if I go there, I'll spend way too much $$$! LOL
    Thanks for sharing!
    Erica :)

  5. Blue and green are my favorite colors! I love the way you are using them together in your living room! And I have to tell you that you have my coffee table! It's exactly the same as the one in my living room! :-)

  6. Wow I didn't even know there was such a color of milk glass. I have a collection of white but love the blue color. Hope someone can help with the coffee table.

  7. Oh, goodness golly! I remember you were redoing this room but I didn't realize that such a shift from red was coming! But, why not? Change is SO refreshing, isn't it? The coffee table - I know there is some brilliant answer but, alas, I don't know what that is. I'm excited for you, though. =)

    And, the milk glass is just beautiful!!

    Happy summer to you!! =)


  8. Aqua and green... two of my favorite colors! I love your new rug and an indoor outdoor was such a good idea, perhaps I should rethink my wool area rug ;)


    PS I think the red looks fabulous with aqua and green... those are the three colors I've been using for the holidays!

  9. The aqua and green combo. Cuteness.... The aqua glassware, I am swooning at the sight. I would have to keep it all. You must keep the aqua bread box. I always tell myself, I will find a place for it....and I usually do.
    blessings to you.


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
