How About Some Green?

Lately I've been doing some shopping (birthdays are coming up), so I've spent some time wandering around Etsy and other online shops. Etsy fascinates me, because there are so many shops and so many one of a kind items. But it's so vast that I often feel a bit lost there.

Sometimes I'll just key in weird searches to see what comes up. For example, if I hunt for green items and specify that the items can't cost more than $5, a search still brings up over 270,000 items. That's mind boggling!

So here are some things you can buy on Etsy for less than $5 US (that's around 5.71 Australian dollars, 3.07 British pounds sterling or 5.56 Canadian dollars in today's money).  Links to the stores are at the top of each image.

Of course, the reason I'm "thinking green" is because I finally finished the Jim Henson biography, and Kermit has been on my mind.

Both Jim Henson and Jerry Nelson, the original Count are gone now, but the characters of Kermit and Count Count live on.

Green is not really my colour. Now purple on the other hand.

Mary, I pretty much never wear green (looks horrid on me), but I like it in small amounts in household decorating. For clothing, though, red, blue and teal are my favorites. I like purple, especially that really deep royal shade of purple.

Nuts! Kermit was on Kelly and Michael this past Monday, Feb 3. I taped it, but that doesn't do you a lot of good. Perhaps you can get it on the Internet. Yeah, you probably can. I am more restricted since I'm in Canada and the show is aired in the US, so I won't even bother trying to find it. Good luck, should you wish to watch it!
