Found It...

...the exact shade of blue/green for my shutters, if ever I paint my house white.

Careful, though, without the proper landscaping (shades of sage, lime, and pine) and site placement, this color combo could look "bad 1960's cinder block ranch".

I was researching wallpaper recently when I was struck by a pattern from Washington Wallcoverings.
It can be found in their African Queen line.

A perennial favorite in fashion, snake, and it's accompanying skin, has managed to wind it's way into home decor. 

A couple of cobras commanding attention on your coffee table, or keeping you company in the bath.

On a diet? You might think twice before reaching in this bowl for a candy fix.

Hissing hinge

Watch your toes.

Run, rabbit, run!

I love the versatility of this tray. It could be at home in the bar, bath, or bedroom.
I found one, in 3 sizes, at, from $50 to $65.

John Derian serves up some good serpent:

February 10th is the start of the Chinese New Year.

It will run it's course thru January 30, 2014...

...the perfect year for you to be "charmed" by snake.
