Our mantel is celebrating the next holiday. I’m not Irish, but I do love a celebration, so St. Patrick’s Day is next up on my celebration calendar.
I hung a St. Patrick’s placemat behind this planter, and a bridge tally that was my mother’s on the front.
I found this leprechaun decanter at another estate sale. I think he looks sort of mischievous.
This jar was in a junk store (and I do mean Junk – with a capital “J”). “The beginning of the Wearin’ O’ The Green” verse is printed on the front, and finished on the back.
The top hat toothpick holder belonged to my Mother.
This Irish “smoker” came from Tuesday Morning several years ago.
A shamrock ornament and a St. Patrick’s pin (both from estate sales) hang from the lamps.
My Uncle worked in a pottery factory in Camden, Arkansas (Camark Pottery). Every time we visited, we came home with at least one piece of pottery. I am using two green Camark Pottery planters that belonged to my Mother.
I cut out the Irish lad and lass several years ago, and I added some shamrock “clings” to my lanterns.
I hope the shamrock garland will bring us the luck o’ the Irish.
On March 12th, Cuisine Kathleen will be having her annual Blog Crawl. You don’t want to miss this one, so start looking around for some green.
Thanks so much for reading my blog. laurie
