It's not easy...

"When green is all there is to be, it can make you wonder why, but why wonder? I'm green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be. Someday you'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers, and me. It's not easy being green."

I think Kermit says it best (and seriously, if you've never seen this video, it's a necessity for life's success and self realization and all that good stuff).

Kermit the Frog sure speaks some profound words.
Although green is not my favorite color, I think it looks so beautiful in the rooms above. It's definitely a cheerful color.

Kermit rocks! I've always had a bit of a green crush on that sweet little guy! :)

Mod Podge Amy said...

I love Kermie. And those pictures!

Diana said...

Kermit can be the next Gandhi, seriously.

Green is such a soothing color psychologically, so maybe Jim Henson did it on purpose...?

Charlie said...

Chartreuse is making a huge splash in home interiors and I think I like it. Mr. Kermit how I love you and no it's not easy being green..too cute!

Denise said...

drollgirl said...

yay for kermit, and yay for green. i used to have such an aversion to green, and then i got a clue and started wearing more of it, and using it in my home. and it is a good thing. :)

flynn said...

Rachel said...

So much to say about that first kitchen. That ceiling, the cabinets, those chairs. *sigh*

Iva said...

I like green a lot. Especially lime green and forest green...I know I know, two totally different greens! YAY for Kermit! Such a funny little dude! hehe.

I love the first and third pictures!

I hope you had a great long weekend! :0)

Hudson's sitting here behind me, bouncing up and down going Froggy, froggy! So I'll leave my comment then we'll watch the video.

But those are all gorgeous photos. I love the idea of three paper lanterns strung in a row. And that second photo...the entryway. LOVE.

MichCherie said...

Awww I love this! I'm wearing a very early 60s looking kermit green dress today that I wasn't sure I was going to keep. I am so happy I chose to keep it and I absolutely love this colour in interior design. Green lately has been making a big come back!

I'm loving green lately. lime green touches here and there... :)

Keith said...

Great photos. I love those. Kermit is awesome.

Kristen Sara said...

I just love that Kermit bit... And the song Rainbow Connection was one of the first songs I could really play on the piano. I used to sit and play and sing my lungs out. Mind you, I can't sing on key to save my life and yet my mom let me carry on for hours...
I also adore the color green. My family room is lots and lots of green shades, and my eyes are green too and I am starting to love them more as I get older.

pranksygang said...

I love Green... its my favorite color! thanks for the sweet post!i loved all the pictures:)

The Cottage Cheese said...

Yay, you've made me SO happy! Kermit can teach us a lot about life. Thanks so much for sharing this video. "The Rainbow Connection" was my absolute favorite song as a kid, and I'd still rank it in my top ten. Fabulous rooms - the kitchen with the green cabinets is just dreamy!

Hanako66 said...

I think that you just inspired my next diy! I love that large frame with the ribbons on the second photo!!!

Blair said...

WOW, I can't get over the green on that wall, it looks great! He he, Kermit made me laugh, thanks for that. Hope you had a great weekend!

Waxy said...

Great photos! And gotta love Kermie of course!

Felicia|DaLipstickBandit said...

I really like the wallpaper...and the touches of green but i don't think i could go on the lime side of things...although, part of my dining room is a sage color.. :)
