What do these disparate things have in common? Jade green, of course!
I’ll start with Jadeite Fire King – have you heard of it? It’s collectible glassware from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. My first piece was a classic coffee mug which friends remembered getting for free in a box of laundry detergent! Not me, I paid a respectable $12 for mine, and it got me started collecting. I love its milky green color though I now prefer a larger cup for my morning coffee.
After many years I’m in the process of ‘de-collecting,’ selling off most of the dishes, bowls and mugs I’ve acquired. No place to display them! But I’m keeping a few of my favorites including the batter bowl, a gift from my mom, which my husband uses for making pancakes and waffles.
Next up are my two favorite felines – Tiger and Benji. Did you notice their green eyes?
I never miss a chance to showcase them. Why not? They inspired this blog.
I’ll close with some shots of the appropriately named Green River, which flows 65 miles from the western slopes of the Cascades before emptying into Puget Sound.
I took these pictures of the river at Kanaskat-Palmer State Park earlier this year. No matter how many times I see it, I’m always amazed at its gorgeous color!
Kanaskat-Palmer is downstream from the Green River Gorge; I shared some of its secrets here if you missed it.
And that’s enough green for today!
