Green Boxes...

Laduree

A Stack of Boxes, 9" x 11 1/2"

Why are we so in love with those green boxes..? I have yet to figure it out...
What does it remind you of?



So many sizes and shapes.

Pink Macaron, 9" x 11 1/2"


The memory of what's inside those lovely boxes lingers on too. The memory of sitting in that beautiful salon, forgetting all the cares of the outside world for just a half hour... Priceless!

  1. I used these boxes and their colours as inspiration when revamping an old French Farmhouse chair for my furniture range.
    Great minds think alike!

  2. That green reminds me of a delicate layer of mint next to deep dark chocolate.

  10. When I was a young girl, growing up in Northern California, there was an upright sort of pared down armoire (fancy name for such a utilitarian object as this was)in the room I shared with my siblings. It had two doors; one opened to reveal some shelves, on which we stacked clothing, and the other opened on a small hanging rack. It was painted just such a green. "Mom, I need clean socks!" I would cry out. "Look in the green chest..." Thanks for the memory.

  15. Blue is most definitely not my favourite colour - in general, but I do love some shades of blue.

    The Ladurée green is sooooo beautiful and peaceful. Your paintings are gorgeous, as usual. :-)

  16. Gorgeous color and boxes. I especially like those green boxes in the company of the lavender ones. Reminds me of the lavender growing in my gardens - the new, spring growth is that delicate shade of green with new pale lavender buds. Perfect combination.

  18. l love the pale green boxes but the one l have seen that l love most is the dainty and so pretty round box that only one almond cake can go in.
    But after seeing all the beautiful pictures of the boxes l thought about your pictures and l could see them done in fabric but only the most delicate sheer fabric and maybe pale green as the first one and underneath a pale pale pink, can you see it to,
