Happy St Patrick's Day!!!!

On Tuesday I had a St. Patty post but wanted to save my favorite decoration for the holiday, my vase.

Isn't she a pretty red headed lass? I imagine she looks like my GGGGGrandmother Elizabeth McMachen as a young woman.

It is basket shaped with alot of detail
Even the back is ornate

But the best part is what I payed for her a few years ago...$3!!
I left the price tag on because I did not think that I would remember. Don't worry it sits in the vase and you can not see it!

So she wishes you a VERY Happy St. Patricks Day!!

What a great piece, Ann. My Grandfather's parents came over from Ireland on my Mom's side and you know my kids are part Irish, so lots of it in the family. Are the flowers coming up at 1515? They are here, yippee!
