The AGA cooker range (oven) is such an old fashioned English thing, to my mind. A relative behemoth with multiple chambers, it elevates even a humble cottage kitchen and easily holds its own in a more upscale space.
The stout, blocky AGA throws off a lot of heat, making it a real draw in homes with cats, dogs, even the occasional goat or baby lamb. It’s a perfect picture of hearth, home and domestic comfort.
What’s not to love? With times as tough as they are right nowadays, musing on gentle things is more important than ever.
I’ll come clean about green. It’s just not my favorite color. Not by a long shot on a lucky day. I know green has plenty of fans, however. They are welcome to gaze in the verdant pastures of green to their heart’s desire.
Add some pink to the green (please) and now you’re speaking a language I can understand and appreciate. Because pink makes almost anything better. Pink even makes pink better, such is the power of roseate hues! But I digress.
Because there is no pink planned for today’s blog post. Not even a whisper. Instead, I’ve searched the web for the prettiest green wedding images I could find, and in the end I was surprised. Some greens are good. Even great! Who knew? Color me (mostly) surprised, dear reader.
No small part of the pleasure of creating this site lies in exploring color, because doing so knocks on doors previously hidden. Even at 54, I haven’t nearly seen it all. Not by half. Here I shake some of the dust out of my world weary eyes and prod pooped out brain cells to sing anew. Color and pretty things give me reasons to be cheerful again, if only for a moment. To hope, with sincerity and no irony. Lately I need extra help with that. The whole world does. A bit of sage, celadon, succulent, or mint or apple green never hurt a soul.
Few things are as lovely to look at as a Spring wedding. I like weddings any time of the year, even (especially!) at Christmas. With the way things are presently going in the world, however, it will be a while before most of us congregate for a wedding of any real size.
My dream wedding has long been pink, pink and more pink. Today is a good day to daydream about weddings. A much needed reverie of loveliness and unabashed prettiness will lift some sagging spirits. At a time like this, every little bit helps.
Think pink, dear readers. Carry on and think pink.
