in-fusion

Here is my infusion of green, like having a cup of fresh steeped green tea. It came from here.



See my lovely hand blown glass ornament hanging in my kitchen window. I have a thing for green. It is one color that goes with everything. Each day I look at this pretty and think of her. She sent it to me. How sweet, an in-fusion of warmth and light to my day.
Several years ago, I painted my kitchen pear green in high gloss. Every day, it makes me feel happy and fresh. So - do you have something special that infuses you and your day. Tell me~

That is so beautiful. She is such a sweetheart. I have a little plant in the kitchen window. It's nice to keep something there to greet you in the morning.

I love that shade of pear green in your kitchen. I hope you keep the color after your remodel!

Stefan,
I think I am leaning towards the kitchens that you post, white, natural and very functional.

Love green. The color is taking over my home as it makes me feel happy and peaceful.
As for kitchens, I am about to have a new kitchen built. I thought I wanted warm woods, I looked at all my tear sheets from years of collecting what I wanted in my dream kitchen- all white! Clean, uncluttered and functional. I want it filled with light, many windows and great appliances.

Very pretty. It must make beautiful splashes of color when the light from the window hits it.

Patricia, I love art glass, what a lovely gift from Seleta. I have an inspiration board next to my desk from my daughter Jennifer. I add phoos of the family, quotes, movie and event stubs, wishes for the future,etc!

Patricia it's GORGEOUS in your home!!!! And a perfect match. I'm so excited, this just made my day. Thank you!

I love that a little piece of Seaside made it all the way to my friend's house in New York. This is so cool.

Patricia, your ornament is absolutely beautiful (as is her blog - I hadn't seen it before)! I also admired the other glass pieces in your window and the color of green you chose for your kitchen.

Living next to the ocean infuses me and my day, whether it be sparkling and sunny, foggy, snowy...the view is really mesmerizing.

Love the ornament, green is also my favorite color. I finally painted my hall bathroom a chartreuse and it always makes me happy to see it.

I am obsessed with kitchen windows... mine saved me when I was hand-washing 24 bottles & nipples over the course of each day. I always imagined that in homes everywhere, there were people doing the exact same thing that I was, at the exact same time ;-)

So beautiful. Green is my favorite color too. So peaceful but energizing as well....in a quiet way

Oh this is so beautiful--and even though green is not my thing, I may have to reconsider! Pear green is a very pretty green and I completely approve--would love to see more of your kitchen!

Awww how gorgeous.....I love green too....I look out of my kitchen window to my lime green Robinia Trees and it's just such a breath of fresh air that lifts me every time.

Colour Me Happy said...

What infuses me with delight is walking into my living room every day and looking out at the view of the city and the water from my large bay windows! I also love this shade of green, my sofa and chair are that colour.
