If you know me, you know I’m a little obsessed with the color green. I’m particularly crazy about the shade you see here.
Mint green is calming and serene. It conjures up the salty smell of the ocean and the cool breeze blowing through your hair.
It makes me think of mermaids rising up out of seafoam. Of steaming mugs of mint tea on a cold morning. Of Peppermint Patties melted all over my daughter’s little fingers.
Somehow, it even makes me think of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (something about enchanted forests and fairies screams this color to me. Any time I think of that play, the images in my head are washed in a mint green glow).
I even painted my bedroom this color, in hopes of making it a nice, calming little oasis.
That’s what I’m hoping I created for you here: a calm little corner of minty goodness in the midst of your hectic day.
