Getting ready for St. Patrick's Day


I set out a few things for St. Patrick's Day. These items are on the sideboard as you come in the front door. I just made the pinkeep. The wooden eggs and nest are something I bought over 20 years ago while the shamrock tray cloth was a gift from my mother when she visited Ireland. She bought it as it matched my shamrock dishes. You can see the little milk jug in the photo. I love this set but the factory closed down and I was never able to complete it. I do however have the bowls and sandwich plates along with a complete coffee set (coffee serving pot, sugar bowl and milk jug, coffee cups and saucers) and tea cups and saucers. It is a cheerful set to use for lunches.

Heidi, the little milk jug is so cute! I think it make a lovely luncheon set. You know, I never decorate for St. Patrick's Day ... I should (being part Irish) but I don't.

What a sweet display! I love the blue eggs. Where did you find the pattern for your March pinkeep?

I just found the freebie through your other blog! You did a really beautiful job of finishing it!

Oooh, Heidi, I love everything there! The pattern on the jug is gorgeous and so is the mat your mom got for you. I am not Irish, but green is still my favorite color!! Is that a real plant? How cool!
You are so festive!
