St. Patrick's Day

This Saturday is our local St. Patty's Day parade.
Due to a change in venue, this year's parade will now run down one of the main streets in town. An exciting change because my brother Drew and sister-in-law Jenna live on that street, so we will have prime seating with a post-parade party at their house to follow.

The street is one of my favorites with lots charming old houses, each one very different then the next. Their house is approximately 100 years old. They spent their first year there doing tons of work including a complete gut job of the kitchen.
 Maybe with a bit of persuasion I'll be able to snap and then post some pictures of their house from parade day.

We've been getting in the spirit here at home too, especially to celebrate my two Irish lads!

Our Living room mantel got the green treatment.
Erin Go Bragh - "Ireland Forever"

I pulled out every book we had with a green binding, there were four :)
Potted shamrocks also known an Oxalis.

In the center of the mantel are two green, jade handled calligraphy brushes.

On either side of the mantel are vintage wooden weights.

Wooden shamrocks decorate the french doors to the living room.

Wishing everyone an early
 Happy St. Patty's Day!
