St Patrick Day Week

It is Saint Patrick Day Week, and I normally do not celebrate it.  Even though some of my family was born in Ireland in the late 1690's. I don't claim Irish heritage because they were of Scottish heritage, stopping over briefly prior to coming to America.


Here is the shelf under my staircase ready for March 17th with vintage postcards.

Some white tulips in my green and white ironstone pitcher.


On Thursday I will tell you more about the vase!

A Postcard I picked up in Paris a few years ago.




Have a great week, I am spending it with family from out of town....my Scottish Mitchell family that is!

What a pretty little vignette. I don't normally decorate for St. Patrick's day as I just have a few things and don't always have time to set them out. I am enjoying seeing yours though!

For someone who isn't Irish you have some lovely Irish things. Your vignette is charming and sweet.

Hi Ann...thanks for stopping by my blog. I love all of your St. Patrick stuff. I don't have a drop of Irish blood in me but my husband does so of course my kids do too. Plus my husband and son are alumni of Notre Dame so we are truly IRISH! Hope you have a great day and enjoy yourself. ~Ann
