Happy St. Patrick's Day- Got Your Green On, Do You?

Top 'O The Morning To You!
Do you love the Irish?
You do?
Oh! Goody!
Then I am on the 
YOU ARE LOVED LIST!

I finally found some shamrock plants!
If you missed my 
Shamrocks Gone Missing Post
you can read that here.

I think these are even better than the ones 
I DIDN'T GET!
Can you see that we still have SNOW?
I got the most beautiful card
on a giveaway
from my friend, Louise.
She makes  & sells these lovely cards
@Cards By Louise.
My photo does not do it justice.
Thank you, Louise.
Hmmm..what else around here is Irish
I  have my beautiful 
Crystal Irish biscuit jar 
from my daughter, Mimi.
And a Belleek vase from my daughter, Tara,
 There are Spring flowers in the foyer
along with my
Erin Go Braugh sign.
That means 
 IRELAND FOREVER!

So----
IF you believe in LEPRECHAUNS
(and I do- Oh! I do)
Maybe you will get lucky and get visited
by a real
Irish Leprechaun.
I may or may not have ordered this little outfit for 
MyHero.
Don't you love it?
Ummmm....
There's an old saying...
If you're lucky enough to be Irish you are
LUCKY ENOUGH!

Isn't MyHero lucky to have such
a thoughtful wife?


Disclaimer:  This is NOT MyHero in that costume.
He refuses to put it on and have his picture taken.
He says he doesn't like bell-bottoms.  pffffffftttt..
What a spoil-sport!

Well of course I love the Irish, Diana, 'cause both you and I are Irish!! Your card is so pretty. I have a small Bellek vase I brought back from Ireland quite a few years ago. And I do hope to go back again some day soon. I never saw a leprechaun quite like that one while we were there:)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Would it help if you told him we all wanna see? :) Just a thought! I have shamrocks growing in the back yard. Really are pretty, aren't they? I would call them clover but these are HUGE. So..I am assuming they are shamrocks. Right?
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, oh great Irish one! :) May the wind always be at your back!
Love,
Mona
p.s. The Duffy's had their "brisket" dinner on Sunday. Everyone works.. :(

Diana, you always make me smile and I think I giggled out loud too! Happy St. Patty's Day to you too! I love your shamrocks. So sorry you still have snow... even though I posted on my blog about the warm 80 degree weather, today it decided it needed to be cold and in the 50's. Just gotta love Spring time weather. :)

I hope you have lots of green on!!! We wouldn't want you getting pinched or anything! :)

Hugs, Amy

OH LOVE the IRISH..since I am partly IRISH..HA
and the card Louise made..got one too ..so cute.. Happy ST Patrick's day Diana..
hugs,Patty

Red Rose Alley said...

Diana, I always know that when I come over here on St. Patrick's Day that I'll be pleasantly surprised with a delightful post. I really like that crystal jar that Mimi gave you. An Irish Priest married us, and he gave us four Irish coffee glasses that I will always treasure. I love the shamrock plants - I've never seen them before. Oh, the leprechauns are calling our names today, Diana.

Wishing you the best St. Patrick's Day ever, my beloved friend.

~Sheri

by the way, the comment I deleted I was just telling you that I just wrote the longest comment and it didn't go through and had to write another one, ugghh, only for you, my friend.

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

LOL! I didn't get much St. Patrick's Day decorating done this year...I made a little banner and a shamrock decoration. I'm not doing justice to my Irish heritage! I am thinking I need to put up an Irish blessing. Happy St. Patrick's Day, Diana! (I almost typed Happy Thanksgiving...)

Maureen Wyatt said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I wish I could have shamrocks in the house, but the cats won't leave them alone. They ate one I'd had for decades and still I believed they'd leave the new one alone. I can't be responsible for so much shamrock murder and have settled for a glittery fake one.

Connie said...

Diana, your shamrocks are beautiful and such sweet daughters you have .
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Connie :)

SpicingUpIdaho said...

So glad you finally got your shamrocks just in time for the big day! Happy St. Patty's Day to you! Our daughter was born today 19 years ago, and I am still in the disbelieving state of wondering how time flew by so fast! Pinch me and tell me its not true, LOL!

Kim said...

Those are pretty shamrocks! We have snow here too...ugh...so over it. Maybe the leprechauns will make it all disappear. I'll keep you posted! ;)

Kelly said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day Diana! I know I've been MIA in the comment section for awhile. Nonetheless, I've have stopped in for a quick read when I can. I was VERY sad to hear that You know who, did u know what to your lovely houseplants, especially your prized beautiful shamrock plant...UGHHH!!! Happy to hear you found some new replacements! Bittersweet, I know cuz I feel the same way about my plants.

"Loved" ALL the pics of Bright Eyes celebration! She is ADORABLE and her party was pretty in pink loveliness!!! You have a fine collection of Irish wears. Love your table setting! <3

Sooo dear friend, kick up your heels and enjoy this fine day, even if "your" hero refuses to play! Opps, did I say that??? ; )

Happy Saint Patrick's day Diana. I too today am Irish and hopefully on this magical day I'll find my pot of Gold! I love your Shamrock plant ... Almost as much as I love visiting your fun posts. Guess what we too will have snow on the ground Thursday evening into Friday and here I thought Spring temps were finally here.

Nellie said...

Love the costume, Diana! Too bad your Hero won't pose for you.:) I don't have very much, but really do love Belleek! So glad you were able to find those shamrock plants. Our plant has begun to bloom - maybe just a wee bit behind schedule.:-) xo Nellie

Oh Diana - you make my day! When I'm not having a good day, I just think to myself - self, go read Diana's blog and you'll have a smile on your face!! And it always works.

Love the costume.

Charm Bracelet Diva {at Home} said...

Wish I had me some of those shamrocks! All my Irish china is packed away Lord knows where (from when we packed up because the house was for sale) so I don't even have that to put around as decoration. Love your Irish touches. Erin go bragh yourself! And Happy St. Patrick's Day!
xoKathleen

carolann said...

like your post. Beautiful card you received.

Love your shamrock plants. I never knew there were such plants. Neot to old to learn.
Have a good night.

Gina said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day, Diana! I think you should cut off the bell bottoms...will your hero wear the costume if it includes short shorts? lol

Adam said...

Happy St. Patricks day

Beemie said...

Happy St. PAtrick's Day...yes you are on my loved list.

LacyKnitsDaily said...

Love everything in your St Pat's Day blog post.
What a fortunate lady you are to have two loving daughters and a very smart hero.
All the best from a "Lucky Enough" Oldish Celtic Lassie

Gypsy Heart said...

Beautiful sharings! I always admire those that make cards ~ I used to do better about that than I do now. A few ladies in our Chemo Angels group make cards and they are stunning too.

I would love to have an Irish Coffee this evening! :) It was 81 here today....and humid. Storms expected later. I may turn on the A/C and have that coffee anyway.

xo

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Love the shamrocks in that planter! I also love the (hunk of a man) leprechaun in the outfit!

Betsy@ coastal-colors said...

You alwasy make me smile, Diana! You have a special gift! I collect Belleek; I love it! The Biscuit jar, vase and card are lovely! I'm so happy you found your shamrock plants- the nerve of that lady buying them all. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Gert said...

You tell your hubby, I want to see him in this cute little outfit!! Happy St Patrivks day to you too!

Carla from The River said...

Happy Go Lucky Diana...I am so happy you are always ready to make us laugh!! :-))
You are great fun and I just love the surprises that usually await us at the end of your blog. So much fun.

Stephen Andrew said...

Not a drop of Irish here, but green is my favorite color (other than white) so I love St Patrick's. I'm sure you won't see this til morning as I'm sure you're passed out with a trail of green beer nearby! :)

Vicki Boster said...

Ohhhh you made me laugh out loud. I was so admiring all of your wonderful Irish collection-- and then "he" appears!!! So funny--

It's just wonderful to hear from you-- thank you for taking the time-- truly...
Vicki

Jan Tanis said...

Oh, all your items are so pretty, love the handmade card. And, I love your hunk of a leprechaun!! ♥

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Sweet card! So glad you have some shamrocks, they look so pretty!
Blessings,
Cindy

ImSoVintage Laura Walker said...

I'm sure your hero would have looked exactly like that in that costume. What a spoilsport. LOL XO Laura

Danni@SiloHillFarm said...

Love all of your Irishness! Yesterday, I finally got my Valentines decor put away and looked at my St. Patricks Day stuff and decided to grab the Easter box instead! Fun seeing yours though!

Beatrice Euphemie said...

Well, you could send back the costume and just keep the model....just sayin'! Love all your Irish lovelies. Erin go bragh! xo

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Diana, Happy Belated St. Patty to you and your Hero and tell him he isn't old enough to talk back to his Nana. If your clothes are on the end of the bed, that better be what you put on! My Irish Eyes are Smiling just now..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Feral Turtle said...

I seem to be working backwards on my emails...but yes good things come to those who wait and I am so lucky to be Irish!!! Send me that leprechaun cuz oh I DO BELIEVE!!!!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Well, I'm late catching up on blogs, but Happy Belated St. Patrick's Day! Glad you found your shamrock. Love all your Irish things too. And what's this about YourHero NOT wanting to put on his darling outfit??? Well, some people just don't appreciate you. Lol!

Candy S said...

Too funny Diana, I love the leprechaun ensemble and the leprechaun in it. I am married to my Irishman and he never lets anyone forget he is Irish either. Now, he is half English yet he lays no claim to his English side nor do his children who are not only one fourth English but half Polish (on their mother's side) and only one fourth Irish. Yet they will say they are Irish with no mention to their "other" heritages.
