Emerald! Exciting, Exotic, Emerald!

Amara:
I'll check out the Company Store, thank you. They have great stuff, but on my last check there I didn't find any shade of green I liked. I'll try again, though.

Oooh, that gown! If only I could (1) afford it, (2) be the right size for it, and (3) have a place to wear it, it would be perfect! Did you notice they have 17 images there for things? Several like the silk fabric and wallpaper are to die for. I also love, love, love the silverware: http://www.vietri.com/store/CategoryDisplay.cfm?cat=2956&cid=251&CFID=6332603&CFTOKEN=eb91ef70db501d25-BFA1B68E-BAE5-4C1D-8A9C38090F2808C6

Want to see what I bought on etsy?
The dish: The glass appears somewhat milky here, but it's not. It's the deepest, richest emerald color imaginable: http://img2.etsystatic.com/006/0/5780501/il_fullxfull.373083594_nl6j.jpg

The vase: http://img3.etsystatic.com/004/0/6426208/il_fullxfull.394576215_7o8p.jpg

The picture: http://img2.etsystatic.com/000/0/6280846/il_fullxfull.306480890.jpg

The vase will go on the antique oval table I have near the front door, the picture on the wall next to it.

Please continue to post ideas or pictures of things you have. I feel like a kid who has been turned loose in a candy store with all her favorites and told they have been made Candy of the Year. 

Bijou:
Those are such beautiful pieces!  You have exquisite taste, amara. 
About that wonderful dress...I wonder if you could make it into curtains for you living room...sort of a reverse of what
Scarlet O'Hara did with her curtains, making them into a gown.   :)

Amara:
Thank you, Bijou. I don't mean to boast; I am just so excited.

Audrey, thank you. I am off to check them now.

The Washington Post did an article about Emerald Green:

The photo gallery has examples; however, not all of them are true emerald:
