Delightful Discoveries - Hunter Gatherer 08.10.10

Since I spent a good part of the evening yesterday gathering some wonderful hunter green items to share with you in this post today, I realized that I was really a hunter gatherer, and the title of this post was born! I also gathered a little bit of information about this shade of green - for instance, did you know:

  • Hunter green has been an accepted color in the English language since 1892.
  • It's the official color of the New York Jets football team.
  • It's one of the two official colors of both Ohio University and the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity.
  • It was the color most commonly worn by hunters until the 20th century, when olive drab took over as the preferred favorite.
  • In Europe, McDonald's Franchise are dropping the red background in their logo and replacing it with hunter green in an effort to show their environmental awareness.
  • Bella Swan, a character in the twilight saga, wore a hunter green jacket in New Moon.
Now that you know some trivia about this color, enjoy some of the beautiful hunter green items I gathered yesterday!

Everything is so lovely, what a moody selection today - like aubepine said, very autumnal! I love how the sunflower painting seems to glow from within.

Great picks as always!
