"For the Love of Green"

In honor of St. Patrick's Day we are having a "treasure hunt" to find the "pot of gold" at the end of the rainbow. Actually it's a pot of earrings at the end of the rainbow--

Now , how do you go about finding it?

Well, you have to read each clue that I have provided below and locate only 12 green items that fit 12 of the clues.

All the studios (and then some) with the items are listed below. Just click on the studio to be taken to the front page where the green item to answer your clue will be found.

When you have all 12 items you are to place a comment below stating that you have found the items and the studios that you found them in. Then you will contact me through my studio to list all 12 items. Do not list the items below--hey, after all that work you don't need to share--it's okay not to share here!

REMEMBER: there are 20 clues listed but you need to find only 12 of the "pieces of green treasure!

There will be 3 winners of a pair of "green earrings" each. This "green" hunt will continue through midnight of St. Patrick's Day.

All correct entries will be put on a separate sheet of paper and then placed in a bowl--3 of the papers will be taken out at random to find the 3 winners. Good luck and have fun.
