Happy St Patrick's Day

In honor of the few Irish genes I inherited from my mother's side,
I'm seeing green collections around my house


A vintage green photo album

Green colored books

A collection of green vintage kitchen implements

Green vintage bottles

Kitty on the green rug?
Ok, maybe that's a stretch...
but couldn't resist our cute kitty
all snuggled up on the floor!

~And an Old Irish Blessing for you~

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Don't forget to wear Green,
and avoid a pinch

Happy St. Patty's Day!


  1. Green is one of my favorite colors! It makes me happy. And I must say...while all your photos above are most enjoyable ~ kitty on the green rug would would be my favorite pick! :)

    Have a terrific evening Vicki! (And indeed ~ I will be wearing green tomorrow...no pinching for me ~ ha!)

  2. Happy St Patrick's day Vicki,

    Do you know my sister has found two or more 4 leaf clovers (and I think on the same day) and she has really bad eyesight. I always, always look and have never found one.

    Do you think the Leprechauns are having a party somewhere in our gardens tonight?

    What a great party that would be!
    Thanks for the lovely comment you left today.

    Looks like the kittie found a perfect spot to snooze and wait for the celebrating to begin.

  6. I hope you enjoyed a happy St. Patrick's Day too. We had a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner and brilliant sunshine. We're at 70º today and it feels glorious outside!
    Your kitty pic is just beautiful but I love all the greens.
    I found one winter aconite blooming yesterday in the same bed as the snowdrops. What a lovely little surprise :)
