Green Decor and Homemade Play DoughEverything is popping up green in the decorating world. If you picked up any shelter magazine lately you'll have been hit with green everywhere for spring! It's fresh, comes in a shade to compliment most decors, and it goes with almost every other color. I am not a huge lover of green and there is almost none in my house but do like the way it's used as a spring accent.
The green curtains brighten up this palette and brings some lightness
to the heavy, dark sofa. So pretty!
I love this vintagey, avocado green in the velvet pillow
and bench. It's a way to do green with an understated elegance.
This bold white against the pear green keeps this wallpaper
modern and crisp.

This green headboard and bed spread are so elegant
and luxurious. I adore them against the blue walls.

I love this room with the green walls although I don't think I could
commit to that much kelly. However, the splash
of kelly in the chair and lamp in the second picture
proves that a little bit still makes a huge impact.
2 C. water colored with food coloring or kool-aid if you want it to smell good
1 TBS vegetable oil
2 C. flour
1/2 C. table salt
1 TBS cream of tarter
Heat the water and oil in a pan until it's hot (I didn't let it come to a boil)
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl stir together the dry ingredients including the glitter. I used about a quarter cup of glitter for this recipe but you use what you think looks about right. We used silver.
Stir the dry ingredients into the hot water/oil and keep it on a low heat while it comes together. Stir, stir, stir and use a heavy wooden spoon because it gets stiff fast!
Turn it out onto a sheet pan and let it cool a bit. When it's cool enough to handle kneed it until it's soft and pliable. Store in an air tight container.
Molly played with it for a good long while and it was fun to do on a sort of boring day.
Tomorrow I announce the Shabby Apple winner! Is it you?
