Lucky Lucky Lucite Green

Curse the groundhog that saw his shadow this year, what bad luck! As if it wasn’t hard enough on the North East, now the rest of us have to endure six more weeks of this awful thing called Winter with them. Alas, we’ll get through this, as we really have no choice. But, don’t get the Winter Weepies because, we’re here to help cheer you up and get you out of that Winter Slump. Whether you’re snow locked, or braving the elements we’re here to remind you that there is some luck coming your way. And it’s called Lucite Green!

With Spring comes revival. All those dead plants seem to rise up from the grave and stretch. I’m sure you may even have some friends that probably go into hibernation until it’s all over. There’s nothing like seeing those first seedlings sprouting from the earth. Your lucky day is coming, it will be here soon so don’t fret there’s still hope!

Pantone has listed Lucite Green one of The Colors of Spring: 2015. What is Pantone? For those of you unfamiliar with it, we’ll give you the scoop! Pantone is the utmost authority on color matching and management. You’re probably skeptical, as in who’s to say what color is what, but take a deep breath. Pantone has solved many communication errors over the years, and is trusted across the art and graphics community. They are completely legit, and have been around since the 1960’s, they even have their own institute.

Lucite Green is described by Pantone here:

“Generally not thought of as a fashion color, though it does come back from time to time, PANTONE 14-5714 Lucite Green is a soothing green shade whose time has really come again. Fresh and clarifying, cool and refreshing, Lucite Green has a minty glow. Light in weight and also in tone, Lucite Green seems almost transparent.”

This cool green color is perfect for the inbetween of Winter, and Spring that we’re all currently in. It’s not too commonly seen in the fashion world, but in the arts and decor world this color is everywhere!

Oh Halloween! It’s the time of year that every kid (and many adult children) looks forward to! Dressing up, telling spooky ghost stories, and let’s not forget CANDY! Let’s admit it, Halloween basically starts on the first day of October! There is so much activity and energy in the air. It is said that this is the time when spirits can freely roam the earth with the living. Jack O’ Lanterns are rumored to keep away evil entities, and dressing up is a way to laugh in the face of Death! Muahahaha! But seriously, let’s take a deeper look into what this holiday is all about.


 Halloween: A History

Everyone is going to argue about the origins of Halloween. Some historians claim that it dates back to Pagan rituals that welcomed the change of the season. Others claim that it was a festival to worship Samhain a Pagan God. Some argue that it’s actually a Christian holiday and has nothing to do with Paganism. Whatever religious belief that this holiday originates from Halloween is celebrated by many. Across America children dress up, and walk the streets of their neighborhoods going door to door asking for candy. And, who can argue with Candy? NO ONE. No one can argue with Candy. Candy is delicious.

Decorating for Halloween:

One of the best things about Halloween are the decorations! You’ll always have those couple of houses that compete with each other for the best decorated house. Giant Spiderwebs, Creepy Ghosts, Witches, Black Cats, Pumpkins! All of these things are commonly seen around Halloween. People love to get into the “Spirit”! Hahaha Spirits and Sprites on Halloween Night! Anyway, this is the perfect time to not only decorate the outside of your abode, but you can also bring in the Halloween feeling by decorating with different art pieces.

Check out this lovely space here! This image is from our Pinterest Board: Halloween Art. Not only does the small detailed artwork convey the essence of Halloween, it isn’t overwhelmingly scary.
