Cele..what?

Celedon..I suppose you would think of this color as a stalk of celery. I remember when this color was all the rage for carpet and wall color back in the 80's. I didnt care for it, and can recall one of my neighbors so excited that she got "Celery" green carpet and when was 'I" going to get the "In" color?  Uhh, yah, right, know what I did instead?  I found a fabulous peachy/pink "Flamingo" color of carpet and had it throughout  my house, turning my nose up to the faded green color. Although, when I think about it now, WHAT the heck was I thinking with a plush color and 2 toddlers! But, all the same, it was beautiful, different, and a great contrast with the sponge painted walls... and was really, really bright!  Now that I have aged myself for all of you, I will go so far as to say thank goodness "Seafoam" green took the place of celery a few years down the road.
 Which leads me to the 36th week of our COLOR CHALLENGE. Celedon was not an easy color to find for me. I had nothing in my inventory and SL Marketplace was about as limited as my sl closet. I settled for a light mint, and found a background picture that said celedon. The lingerie and background matched, and hey, that was all that mattered. =)

Very hawt! Love the pastel w/ black trim.

PS - and I had my walls painted in celery/sage-ish shade at first. Big mistake, I was over it by the end of the second week.

Hey, at least you went for a color--my mother would never have any carpet color but brown, she said it was perfect because it matched all the dirt!

Great ensemble!

Yea, seeing you in that lingerie, I don't think anyone would quibble about the subtleties of mint vs celadon. Hawt!

When in doubt, distract the viewer with bare skin and lots of ink -- great look :-).
