Bonne Fete, Day of St Patrick Celebration

It is St. Patrick's Day
One I never really celebrated, I guess I have some Irish blood
but we always celebrate the fact we are Scottish.
a postcard I bought in Paris years ago, that I cherish

Even in France they celebrate St. Patrick's Day.
to Mademoisella Eugenia from Marie

My MIL is very Irish, Beasley and Sullivan
She had a large collection of Belleek that
she has so kindly passed on to her daughters
and DIL's

My Belleek shelf.
The vase with the lily of the valley actually is mine,
a HS graduation present.

I love this delicate Belleck with hints of pink

Hope your St. Paddy's day is a great one!

Well the day has come and gone - we're not one spec Irish ourselves so we only celebrate in spirit as well. Love that postcard.

Pretty pieces on your shelf!
My maiden name is Dad was half Irish, and half Chippewa Indian. When he, and my grandparents were alive, we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. Now that they are gone, it's just not the same. But I do have some wonderful memories.
