lime green







don't you love the way a lime smells when you first cut it...it just screams summer for me...
it's hot- like real hot here in GA...makes me wish i was laying by the pool...
nothing goes better w/ that activity than a corona w/a lime....so cheers to summer!

Oh I love limes as well. They smell amazing and look so pretty just sitting in a bowl or in my glass of water. Lovely images and please sent some summer my way! It's pouring and I'm sitting at home wearing Uggs!

hah as soon as I read, "dont' you love the way a lime smells when you first cut it..." I thought yea if you've just cracked a corona. And you had written that too! great minds think alike..I'm in Alabama and it is SOOO hot. I loving going to the pool but it's almost too hot for that as well! love this post. and that wood X bookcase, would look great filled w/ vintage wine bottles.

I love that color! We are looking at a house that we may offer on and a bathroom is remodeled and painted in lime green, like that first picture, I was surprised how much I loved it when I saw it.

This is such a fresh, fun color! So great for summer...speaking of I could use a corona right now :)

very fresh!
One "fun fact" about lime and sun. Some people- I am one of them- may have a slight skin reaction to sun and lime. In other words, if you spill lime juice from your margarita/Corona on your skin and are laying in the sun,it can create a spot on your skin (no harm to you and eventually goes away but it can be slightly disturbing if you don't know what it is).

all pretty! I have a lime green ceramic lamp that was $1 at a yard sale and I love it.

it's hot here too. like, holy cow, hot. yesterday I walked outside and thought "this is what it feels like to be smothered."

A Corona too heavy for our 100 plus days here in AZ but a mojito with fresh lime is an instant cooler!!!

Blueprint Bliss said...

Love fresh limes! Adore the second image.

VictoriaArt said...

Love that corona and lime, yeah!
For the rest,oh how I would love for the hot weather to be here, all but rain and
miserably cool!
Btw, lime green is one of my favorite colors, my dining room has had it for 9 years and we can't get enough!
Thanks for sharing those lovely pictures.
Enjoy the pool!

I am working on a girls room with this color, yellow and kahki and this post is really helpful as lime is not a color I use frequently. Been gone, catching up on blog reading...thanks for this.
