Delightful Discoveries - In Mint Condition 08.05.10

Today's featured color is a minty sea foam green - at least that's what I've decided to call it ;) It's not quite the color of a green after dinner butter mint, but it's a little bit lighter than sea foam as it rides in on waves. Regardless, it's a lovely soft green hue, and I'm happy to share some of the lovely items that were nominated for this feature!

Top Row (L-R)
Vintage Bird Letterpress Gift Tags - Set of 4 by missive

Middle Row (L-R)

Spectacular soft greens, wouldn't you agree? I hope you've found some new favorite items and some new favorite shops!

In checking my calendar of upcoming features, I realized there was something fishy with tomorrow's theme... it's that lovely shade of light orangey pink we often call salmon. Salmon... fishy... get it?? okay, stop rolling your eyes and shaking your head - you have to admit it was a little bit punny! So take a couple minutes to search your shops for anything you might have in this great color - or any favorites that you might come across through the day from your favorite shops - and then come back and click here to e-mail me the link. And of course wait patiently until the day of the feature to find out if I selected your nomination to be showcased!

By the way, I spent some time last night filling out the rest of my schedule of features for the rest of August so shift your line of vision over to my right sidebar, click on "Be Featured" and if you have anything that fits any of the posted themes, don't wait to send them on over!

Enjoy your Thursday and get in gear for that fun-filled weekend that's coming up! I'd love to hear what you plans are!
