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....
