May Good Luck Be Your Friend

"For each petal on the shamrock.
This brings a wish your way.
Good health, good luck  & happiness.
For today& every day!"
These are the Cranky Queen's thoughts for you this week...She wanted to share her St. Patrick's Day decorations.  It's always a fun holiday when your hubby is Irish! Yes, Cranky King is "Maternally Irish!!!"
Yes, you are seeing green...A St. Paddy's Day Vignette

A bowl full of hand~made shamrocks by Cranky herself! With a few clover cookie cutters & St. Patrick's Day vintage post cards tucked in....
 Love the old vintage post cards!
Isn't this little guy cute?

This horseshoe shamrock hanger is one that I made last year.  It hangs from the chandelier in the breakfast room.  I also made all of my gal pals one!

  This little sign hangs outside our side entry wishing all those who enter & leave good luck!

 This little guy is actually an elf, but I think he kinda looks like a leprechaun, relaxing in a potted fern on the kitchen cabinet...

Not an Irishdog in the bunch...
