Happy St. Patricks Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day

This is a rerun of a blog post I did back in 2015..    It seemed appropriate to run it again today rather than to write a new post that would have been pretty much the same thing.

(I found the border of the above logo at Karla's Cottage blog and the Happy Saint Patrick's Day wording was from the Graphic's Fairy I think.  Fun to put them together.)

My husband is VERY Irish (his dad was from Northern Ireland and although his mom was Canadian she had lots of Irish ancestors.  So we Celebrate St. Patrick's Day here.  I am still deciding what dinner to serve for St. Patrick's Day dinner.  Probably something involving Cabbage.......
Pennsylvania is big on this day too.  There are parades everywhere and fun runs too.   In the city of Wilkes-Barre they even paint a green line down the center of the street where the parade goes.

I actually only have one cup and saucer set that is really suitable for St. Patrick's Day.  It is of course Royal Albert and called, appropriately enough, Shamrock.

Meanwhile, be sure to check out all of the other tea parties going on around blogland.

Dear Beth:
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you! I loved your posting and pretty vintage postcards are always so welcoming. That cup and saucer are really lovely! Thanks for sharing and hope your day is a delight and full of Irish charm!

Happy St. Patrick's day to you too Beth. These are lovely images. We don't celebrate this as a special day as neither of us have any Irish in our backgrounds. However, I did wear green today but only by coincidence.
