I usually force Forsythia branches about this time of year, but with the warm temps, it's been blooming for a couple of weeks now.
It's been a while since I've had flowers here, and I really missed them.
I shopped the house and found a couple of books about Ireland to put under the pitcher, and I needed a riser for the candle stick because it was shorter than I liked...don't laugh!
It a cachepot turned upside down.
Well, you know how it is. I got it into my head that I wanted to use that candle stick, and, not any of the other 8 or 10 that I have.
Well, go ahead and laugh. It does look kinda funny, but I couldn't find anything else to make the candle stick higher...and it's green. So, it'll have to do for now.
The transferware plate has a scene with the Blarney Castle on it. Oh, and there is a bird's nest with a green egg, which you can't see very well here.
Here's close up so you can see the detail. The pattern is Johnson Brothers, Old Britain Castles.
Here's a view looking down from the stairs. Gosh, those Forsythia branches really look big from here.
You can see I still have my sea grass rug down. I figured, since we haven't had much of a winter, no body would notice...Shhhh, don't tell anybody.
I haven't see the Leprechaun lately. He's probably up to some mischief, and I won't find out about it till later. Hmmmm. Or maybe he's gone. Ya think?
I'll be at these parties
