Just green

Even though I am only like a quarter percent Irish, I like St. Patrick’s Day.
Something about the day is magical, maybe because of the leprechauns.
My kids would come home from school with leprechaun traps and set them up in hopes of catching one. Somehow they always managed to escape but left evidence of them being there. The girls would come rushing in my room to show me the green sparkles the leprechauns left behind.
(Would have been nice if they left a token gold piece or two…..)

There is a great assortment of items out there, from vintage to handmade, to just fun. Here are a few, so I hope you enjoy and get in the spirit of the Irish.
