A Little Bit of Blarney

I took the Valentines Day decorations down today.
There wasn't a lot , so it didn't take long.
Nothing like Christmas.
Thank God !

I did a little Easter, a little Spring and a little St. Patty's Day.
Today , I'm sharing the St. Patty's Day.
I really love St. Patricks Day.
Maybe cause I love all things Irish.
( Nope , no Irish in my blood , just love it )
I always make my family corn beef and cabbage on St. Patricks Day.
Well, except one year ,
I decided to mix it up a little and made Shepard's Pie.
Not a hit.
They wondered where the corn beef and cabbage was.
I haven't messed with the menu since.
Although if I could find a really good ( and easy) recipe for Irish Stew, I might.
If anyone has one , please send it my way.

Ok, Ok ....
St. Patrick's Day decorations ~

My sideboard in the entry all decked out in celebration of St Patrick.
But I had to include my pears...

When I spotted this footed green bowl at the thrift store ,
 I knew it would be perfect for my little pears.

I like milk glass.
And I like vases.
I have quite a few milk glass vases.
I found the boxwood ( faux) at HobLob,
I knew I'd find somewhere to use them :)

My photo isn't the best ,
but the little dessert glass has vines of shamrocks around it.
I think it was $1 at the junk store .
The printable in the background is courtesy of  Blooming Homestead.
She has lots and lots of free printables.
Hop over and check them out !

My thrift store dove.
( Have you noticed I've got a thing for birds ? )

Now for a little Pinterest inspiration.....
