Green Memories


So, I was suppose to be strolling the beautiful street of Charleston this week and enjoying the ultimate in southern hospitality…but life happened, and I needed to put a pin on these plans and revisit in June.  It’s the right thing for all of us. Needless to say, I didn’t have a new mantel up and ready and anything I throw together now can’t top this one from a few years ago. Oh look at that tiny Princess. It would be nice if our only problem was a weekend without Verizon, however, it is a good memory and a great reminder that things will change but everything will be alright  

 A restful weekend here in Annapolis, in no small part thanks to a crazy burned out electrical transformer that led to a blown out Verizon box that led to a service call to happen between 9am and 9pm that led to a mandatory day at home.  It is a wonder how we ever did anything without the internet…or Fios TV. Anyway, it did give me time to put together a St. Patrick Day mantel.  I have never attempted to capture the luck of the Irish in my decor, but like my Valentine’s mantel, I am quite pleased that the simplest additions really do have major impact.  Do you like the sparkly shamrock? I give the Princess full credit!

Some green depression, vintage postcards and a bunting of shamrock pennants gives homage to Old Saint Patrick.

Vintage St. Patrick postcards are known for their amusing nature and exuberant love of the perfect Irish lass! I love these examples of both.

My Hero also kept busy this weekend.  He was able to hang my darling new antique sampler…a post for another time. Thank goodness he had a reliable helper.  Someone has to chose the perfect nail!
