Your comments on my previous post convinced me that “if it’s green, it’s Irish” – at least during the month of March. For this green tablescape, I even moved my high/low table in front of the green plaid loveseat in my family room. Do ya think I might be getting a little carried away with this green in March obsession?
Since I’ve always used a mixture of patterns that have nothing to do with each other, I don’t guess I can blame y’all for that! I’ve said it before – you don’t find matching and coordinating linens and china if you are a bargain hunter, so I’ve learned to like things that don’t coordinate! That’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it!

Okay, I’ve got daisies and four-leaf clovers on the tablecloth, Lillies of the Valley on the napkins, Apple Blossoms on the plates, and berries on the centerpiece wreath! I think we can safely say that nothing on this table matches anything else on this table! I’m not even going to start counting the different shades of green!
Speaking of “luck of the Irish” (oh, I wasn’t, was I?…Well, I’m going to now!) I recently had the luck of the Irish when I won the giveaway at Foley’s Follies! The prize was a beautiful server with a cloche lid! Since I haven’t prepared any pretty food to put in the server (and since I’m kind of “in to” green this month), I put an “Irish village” under the cloche to show it to you.
Do you see that rather stern looking Irish lady? She’s delivering food, and she’s upset, because she thinks I should have displayed this server with a delicious cupcake in it instead of a village!
Barb didn’t stop with just the server! Look what else I won.
I wish you could smell these candles. They are delicious! No, I didn’t take a bite out of the candle, but they do smell delicious! And see all of that bling around the candles? Barb sent bling in my prize box! If you haven’t visited Barb, stop by Foley’s Follies and see what she’s up to these days. Barb is such a sweet lady, and she always shares the most wonderful recipes. Thank you so much Barb.
Now all ye lads and lassies, do an Irish jig on over to Between Naps on the Porch for links to tablescapes. Top o’ the day to ya! laurie
