Green With Envy

Ever notice how much we are surrounded with green.  Nature has provided us with so many variations of green. Lovely plants, lawn, trees are so beautiful with the color green.
On the other hand, we have the term, green with envy.  Who in the heck started that?  Shakespeare described it as the green sickness, meaning an overproduction of bile which turns the  human skin slightly green.
Of course we have the old saying, a person who is jealous is green with envy. The green eyed monster has shown up. I have a lot of green in my eyes, so I hope people do not think I am the green eyed monster.....LOL

Goodness, the history of words is very interesting. We could go and on  with words like I see red.

Anyway, I set a perfectly green tablescape off the study.  A peaceful place which includes a lovely waterfall.
Green cabbage leaves placemats with green chargers with more cabbage and a watering can napkin ring. Is there such as thing as too much green?

Isn't this head vase the cutest?  I think they are awesome.

A wheel barrow filled with garden gloves, seed packets, a plant and utensils. This is a fun salad bowl.

Here's video of the table complete with the sound of the waterfall.

I hope your summer is going well.  Time is flying by.  I already see Fall and Halloween in the stores.

  1. Super cute Linda. Love the centerpiece. Have a great night.

  2. Linda, I really like seeing all that green. I have been enjoying the crops in the fields being at their best color this past month. I think looking out at that pretty setting would be so peaceful. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  3. Love it! The head planter looks great that way! Love the waterfall!

  4. I love all your green, Linda! It’s so cool, peaceful and relaxing. I have one of those head vases, too. They are fun to use. Your water feature adds so much ambience to your setting.

  5. Linda- It is so lovely. I have very green eyes and people used to say I had cat's eyes. lol Your table setting is really fantastic, Linda. You always do a beautiful job. Love to you- xo Diana

  6. Oh Linda, my sweet friend,
    this table looks gorgeous ... I would love to sit down with you for a coffee ;O)
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
    Lots of Love, Claudia xo

  7. I'm green with envy! ( I couldn't resist saying that Linda - hee hee ) I love those head planters & what a great centerpiece it makes! Blessings, Edie Marie

    1. Thank you Edie, I am glad you said It was me trying to get creative with the post title. Many blessings Edie.

  8. The sound of your waterfall is so soothing! Your tablescape with so many lovely shades of green is soothing and refreshing too. Pretty and eye catching as well. This is one of my favorites! Pinning.
    Nature combines every shade of green perfectly. They all blend.

  9. And you have created Green Peace! What a wonderful spot to dine, it's like a vacation right in your own backyard! Poor green, it does get a bad rap while it provides us with so much beauty!

  10. I think I'm "Green with Envy" over your beautiful green tablescape. How relaxing.

  11. Linda, this is outstanding! I truly love your tablescape and all the green. I feel as if the temperature just dropped about 10 degrees, the green is so cooling and restful.

  12. Linda, one of my favorite looks in nature is the variety of greens against each other. I especially like spring when the trees are leafing out, plants are putting on new growth. The spring green against the mature green of the plant offers a beautiful contrast. Great post, and your green table is definitely not too much green!

  13. Green is never just green, you need to use lots of different adjectives to describe it. Someone who loves green is a born gardener, because green is a constant throughout the year. And what better place to set a pretty table! Yours looks so relaxing, I imagine sitting there long after the meal is over.

  14. I love the garden gift set salad bowl. Again, you have a beautiful table scape. The green will be gone soon and we will be seeing the colors of Fall.

  15. A stunner Linda! I can't believe the timing of our both creating a centerpiece from a head planter --- within days of each other! Mine was Go Greek, yours Go Green! See what happens when we put our heads together, LOL?

  16. I love your pretty green table and the head vase is awesome looking. Enjoy the weekend.
