Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red or yellow or gold -
Or something much more colorful than that.
Unless of course you are like this little green cabinet I fell in love with at the estate sale last Friday.
However the price was a bit steep, and Saturday was half-price day.
It's not that easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things.
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're not
Standing out like flashy sparkles in the water -
Or stars in the sky.
Unless of course Distressed Donna finds you hiding in the back of a shed covered in dirt - not sparkly at all.
But green's the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like a mountain,
Or important like a river, or tall like a tree.
So important I got to the sale forty minutes ahead of time, parked around the corner by the back driveway, and let the others line up by the front door while I watched from the warmth of my truck for the sale to begin.
When green is all there is to be,
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder?
Why wonder/ I am green and it'll do fine it's beautiful.
And I think it's what I want to be!
You can see my concrete Kermit behind the little cabinet nodding in agreement.
However being obsessed as I am with being distressed, I had to sand the cabinet which is really not that little.
Look at all the storage.
I wish I had room for it.
There was a lovely blue and a creamy white under the Spring green.
Had there been time before the rain came, I would have darkened with a bit of stain and wax.
The cabinet cleaned up nicely.
See Kermit checking out the backside?
He thought he had a new home.
It's not that easy being green, but it is easy to be DISTRESSED green!
Now available at Booth W-10, Riverfront Antique Mall.
