Going Green!


Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and I'll be wearing green....even if it is a ribbon tied on (I'm not really a green person). It's such a fun holiday and I still can't resist a pinch or two when the occasion arises. My friend Kathleen, who is of Irish heritage, is holding a virtual St. Patty's Day party over at Cuisine Kathleen and of course I'm joining in. Last year I struggled finding green for a tablesetting, so I did a little green scavenger hunt. It was so much fun..I did a repeat. I went nursery hopping with my parents this past weekend and I have to say...they were full of GREEN (and gold)!


One of the nurseries we went to has so many pretty things...we had a ball...


I would have liked to have gone home with one of these pretty green and brown purses


And I could have bought these plates for wonderful St. Patrick's day look


Along with these gorgeous glasses and little bud vase


I found the perfect plate...


There were even little magical green creatures hanging around



When I saw these pots...I imagined them all filled with gold....



I thought for a second that I actually found some to fill those pots...


Maybe not gold...but a field of sunshine! The pigeons were swooping in unison around the field. They were cute, but not as cute as this little green guy


And going green seems to be a way of life for this fellow


He gave me an Irish blessing as I passed by


And told me where to find a patch of shamrocks!


Go have a look at all of the other green filled posts at Cuisine Kathleen's St. Patty's day shindig! Have a cookie for the road....

Suzy, what a wonderful post to celebrate the holiday! I don't think I could have walked away from that cute ruffled purse or the little green birdie - come on tell us - what did you buy?? I loved the green scavenger hunt from beginning to end - might have to try that idea some time. I really enjoyed this post.

Kathleen's probably going to send you back for that plate :)

Suzy, what a fun post to read and view ... love seeing your pictures of green (and gold). But the "Got Dirt" fellow is a hoot. AND I'd love to have a handful of those cookies.

Love that soda bread plate :)

Thanks for joining in the carnival.

I managed to find some shamrock-shaped soda bread in our local supermarket this week!
