A Wee Bit 'O Spring In The Front Hall

I was so busy yesterday with some 
projects that I almost forgot to take
pictures for a post this morning.
But, never fear, I can always
come up with something.

So-here you have it-
SOMETHING!
Something Springy and lovely
in the front hall.
Sorry- I  know it is a tad out of focus-
Kind of like my eyes in the morning.

The bottom has an Irish greeting
for St. Patrick's Day.
Overall, it looks like this.
~Erin Go Bragh~
I am adding this after someone
commented they had to look it up.
You know what THAT means
 someone that is 
NOT IRISH reads my blog!!
Whoo Hooo
Anyway-
Erin Go Bragh means
Ireland Forever
MyHero said he thinks it looks like a 
FUNERAL ARRANGEMENT

I told him THAT COULD BE arranged!.
And YOU know what I mean by that!

your photo name

  1. Diana, That is very pretty. Also funny the way you and your Hero banter back and forth. I have a feeling that man never tops you. LOL Hope you are getting some thawing today. xoxo,Susie

  2. I love it. I've seen my share of funeral arrangements (my parents own a funeral home) and I don't think it looks like one. Happy Friday!

  3. I know I have some Irish blood, but never even thought of St. Pat's Day but of wearing green. Didn't want any pinching! So I had to consult Wiki for the Erin Go Bragh. Beautiful display. Linda@Wetcreek Blog

  5. Men have the weirdest sense of taste, that is a beautiful arrangement, looks nothing funerally, at all.

  7. Love the green! I am part Irish, part English and German! It is sunny and going to be warmer here today. We will be heading 80 miles to the city today so that I can look for window dressings/drapes. I will be wearing my sunglasses today, yea!!!!! Go green!

  8. Oh gosh! LOL on his comment and yours! I bought a little sign with the same phrase and had to look it up. Now we know!
    Hooray we're warming up here (even if it's temporary)!!

  9. LOL.... would he like it to be his? :-)

  10. Haha! You would think that after all these years of marriage they would just learn to say, "It looks lovely, honey!" Well I think it looks lovely and I am definitely not Irish...at all. Not even a wee speck! ;) Happy March!!

  11. Let's not be arranging any funerals any time, soon. Those are no fun... and we know that you were born to have fun. Anyway - the arrangement looks beautiful.

  12. Oh no, he didn't?! LOL. It's springy, festive, and timely...in other words—perfect!

  16. Don't apologize for fuzzy pics, not a bit. I love, love, love some fuzziness in pics. Especially of flowers. And I can't always 'capture' them, in that lovely gauzzzzzzzzy way.

    In other words, embrace any gauzzzzzzzzzy-effect photos, you take.

    :-)))))

  25. Well, I'm Irish but don't know how much...my maternal great grandparents were from County Down, Ireland and my mom could make the BEST corn beef and cabbage!
    Your husband is so funny!

  31. Pretty. Yes, bring on the flowers. It's warm here today - 50 - but snow still piled up. Have a good week-end.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lovely flowers Diana...I like anything purple. When I go on Etsy, I favor all things purple, so I most certainly would favor your flowered picture. Your husband is funny, I like your come-back, brought a chuckle this morn. It's gonna be in the 30's this weekend...yay...spring is coming!!

  35. I thought it looked like those special candelabras at the end of each pew from my wedding-very pretty!
    Thank you for the Irish translation, I never would have guessed.
    Did you paint the sign yourself?

    ReplyDelete

  38. Diana,
    I am so impressed with you. You have lovely things in your home as well as trying to keep an active blog going. How do you do it all, my friend? I really love the flower arrangement and it automatically caught my eye, as Purple is my favorite color!

    The 'Ireland Forever' sign adds a special touch. Have a nice weekend, dear.

    Love,
    ~Sheri

  42. Maybe it's the candles but I don't think I ever saw Lilacs at a funeral..

    ReplyDelete
  43. You know he's right...it does look like a funeral basket. But those are the most beautiful arrangements, so maybe you should just take it as a compliment. I love it- looks like spring there.

  44. your hero...he's a funny one, that one!

    1. Well, I'm told I have some Irish in me, but obviously not enough, because I didn't know what that meant either! LOL! I can see why your husband thought it looked liked a funeral arrangement. It looks like it could be in a church because of the candles mixed with the flowers and it's a big arrangement. I think it's very pretty though!

  45. LOL! Your Hero cracks me up! Hey, maybe your flower arrangement will cause the snow to melt and spring to come! Let's hope so! Hugs, Leena

    ReplyDelete
  46. You are so funny..... Flower arrangement looks good. I think your hero likes to tease you...
    Have a great weekend.

  48. I thinks its lovely Diana! Anything with flowers and green this time of year works for me.

  56. LOL oh my gosh - I wish I could be a leprechaun hiding in the petals of your arrangement and chuckling all day at the funnies you and "your hero" exchange! Funeral arrangement? Naw! It's a pretty and fresh and a much needed burst of spring!
    And if my own "hero" were to make that comment, I'd say the usual, "Don't even bother picking a fight with me - you'll never win!" He knows that!
