A Little Bit of Green


Hi, everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. 
 I didn't find anything new for St. Patrick's Day, when I was shopping, so I spent the weekend shopping the house for green things to decorate with. 
Here are a few bits of green around my house.

 I framed a vintage post card and...

...pulled a few things together in a corner of the living room, by the book case.

Pillows with roses, green plaid, and dogs. How Irish is that?

On my bedside table there's a Belleek shamrock vase with a few Lenten Roses from the yard. Oh, and did you notice the a green leather inlay on the top... and no, my bedside table isn't always this uncluttered. Usually, it's piled high with books and things.

In the family room...a little picture of St. Patrick, given to me by Sara @ Hyacinths For The Soul
Actually, I just stuck the picture on top of my son's high school senior photo. Sorry Son, it's only for a few days. :) 

On the side table by the sofa, I put a Celtic design candle holder with a green candle, and added a green plant and...

...a framed collection of old Irish coins...which hides the phone.

Well, that's about all the decorating I've done for now, except a little St. Patrick's Day breakfast tablescape which I'll show you next time.
Hugs and have a great week,
Babs

Babs, like your little touches of green. I pulled out my hand full of St. Patrick's things to get a little vignette pulled together. Have I done it yet? No. Running out of time. Yikes! Thanks for sharing yours. Look forward to the tablescape.

Looks like you were very successful shopping your house! I'd say you have a nice collection of green/Irish things. That pitcher with the little shamrocks on it is perfect!

You did a great job finding some Irish gems! I haven't pulled myself together on St. Patrick's Day yet!
I looked at bying some Beleek dinnerware but decided it was too rich for my blood for now. I love the vase you have.
Have a Happy St. Paticks Day!

You have so many wonderful pieces, I don't know where to start! Loving the Irish and plaid and the Lenten rose in a vase - I swoon! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven.

You evidently have some Irish heritage in your family to have such beautiful Irish decorations! I love that postcard!

I love how you found so many wonderful things to decorate with, and truly Irish for sure. Love the picture hiding the phone idea and all of the pillows are gorgeous. Fabulous vignettes. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

For one who didn't have much green, you have put out a beautiful St. Patrick's spread. The picture of St. Patrick is beautiful and I love the Belleek vase with the Lenten Roses.
Thanks for showing us your green.
