Dill Pickle

15 Jun

When I was a kid I loved to eat pickles. Specifically, those giant dill pickles that filled large glass jars on the counter of a gas station mart. And if my grandpa would buy me a dill pickle and a Slim Jim……….Wow, what a day!

The funny thing is, I’m no longer a fan of either one. My adult mind says, “Ewww, there’s so much sodium in a pickle. And what else it floating around in that germ-laden glass jar? A slim Jim? It’s not food! It’s grease and meat parts.” Oh, to be a worry less child again.

I do love the color Dill Pickle. Yes, it’s a real paint color and while working in my home office, I am surrounded by it.

Style Tip  ::  I not only went with green on my walls but my furnishings too. With the exception of my desk, leather chair and green side table, everything in my office is gently used and much of it, vintage. It’s easy, affordable and green to DIY furniture and accessories to make them match your style and personality. Also, offices shouldn’t be sterile spaces. Surround yourself with comfortable and inspirational details…..family photos, vision boards, quotes, books, flowers and soften your work space with curtains, pillows and cozy seating.

    Beautiful room! The pillow with circles reminds me of a jacket that I have with green and brown print. Fantastic as always Paula. :)
