Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Lucky Charms!!!
May You Find Gold At the End of Your Rainbow!

Kiss Me, I'm Irish...
We are a "Scot-Irish" family.  My husband having the Irish heritage & my family, the Scottish.  So each year in March, "luck has it", our home takes on a shade of green. At the top is a dough bowl filled with grunged shamrock ornies, cookie cutters and old Irish postcards.

 I enjoyed making these grunged shamrock ornies from men's old suits, eyelet shirts that I purchased from the local thrift store & adding bits & bobs for fun!
These shamrocks hang from our breakfast room chandelier, along with a rusty horseshoe attached to a sham  that I made wishing all that enter our home good luck...

Thrift store find...How "lucky" I was...no cigarette burns.

IRISH PRAYER: May you be in Heaven a half hour before the devil knows you're dead!

Don't let your "bloomers" be caught down & flapping in the wind!

  3. Happy St. Patricks Day to you! I think I better break out the vintage postcards, that might be all I have in the way of decorations. Maybe I'll make a green dinner :) Have a great weekend xoxo

  4. Hi Tiffany..Being Scot-Irish myself all the green made me smile and reminded me of my Great Grandma's stories of the little people dancing on her window sills. I see Jill left you a little note up above...I will just add my two cents worth and say Thank You for posting on our blog and being one of our first followers..I love your suit shamrocks...What a great idea! Take care and Thanks Again!!!

  5. Love your shamrock ornies! I'm so bad at decorating for St. Patty's Day. I'm already on Easter!

  6. I am loving all your cute St Pat's Day decorations. The little shamrocks are really fun but I am so in love with the vintage postcards. I am trying to collect some for each holiday to use in my vignettes! Yours are amazing! hugs, Linda

  7. hello Tiffany,

    Thank you for coming by and commenting on Rhonda's interview. I love your Irish teddy bear he's cute. I'm afraid the only thing Irish about me is my son's name, Liam. So nice to meet you.

  14. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my
    own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what
    you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
