Sprinkling o' the Green


Our family is Irish. Well, about half Irish. Strange, but true: my husband is half Irish and half Danish. And, so am I. I was born with an Irish surname and I've married into an Irish surname. I went from having a more rare Irish name to having one of the most common. In Ireland, you can't swing a pot o' gold without whacking someone with our surname in the head.

Even though we're Irish, I don't decorate for St. Patrick's Day. But anyone who steps into our home for the first time around this time of year might think I honor the saint by bringing out all things green. Truth is, green is my favorite color. Colleagues at work joke that I wear green every day. Friends and family know that if they want to pick up a small gift for me, they're always safe with the color green. 

So, since St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd feature some of the green I've sprinkled around--simply because I love the color.
















Yes, it's a green day.


Make it a great day!

  2. Love the green. My bit of Irish takes over at this time of year and my decorating for St. Pat's Day is mainly just me herding all my green stuff together. Your greens are lovely. Happy Day!

  3. Lovely greens--pretty postings of your collections. I've always wanted to try growing a pot of lucky leaf clover. Your pottery is fabulous!

  4. You sprinkled just the right touches for this special green. I never decorate for any occasion at this stage of my life. It is just me, so why bother.
