St. Patrick's Decor - 2012

Pin It
I love decorating for all the holidays and have been looking forward to Cuisine Kathleen's Irish Blog Crawl since last year!!!!!

Let's start with my outside lights!!!!  If you look back at my Valentine's decorations -- I did the same thing but in red.  These red and green mini lights have been great to go from Christmas thru St. Patrick's with just some minor changes -
















Some larger shamrocks -
















This is how the shamrocks look in daylight -
















This is what you see when you enter the side door -





















As you continue thru my home decor --




















































































































































































































































My newest St. Patrick's Day decoration -- a tree!!!!!!  I had bought this tree on ebay several years ago and have used it at Easter.  So nice that I am finding other uses for it!!!  Love these shamrocks found at Big Lots (Bought some several years ago but found them again this year, too!!!) -










































































A Christmas friend, Karen, had sent a link to these Subway Art and I knew they would be great in my frames -















































































































































































And, the tour ends with exiting out the front door -





















Come this weekend - not yet sure of my plans.  If I celebrate at home I have already talked about making reubens -- but I did pick this up at Trader Joe's --
















Of course, you know that Lucy is always up for any holiday.  Can't you tell by the look on her face?


















I am linking to Cuisine Kathleen's Annual St. Patrick's Blog Crawl.  To see all the Irish excitement please click here.  You will have so much fun and get plenty of ideas!!!

Looks like Lucy maybe caught the little leprechaun who was wearing that hat! You are very clever with the lights and those little shamrock ornaments are very cute! Linda

I am so glad you joined in this year with all your fun decorations! I bought. Those shamrocks at BL this year too, but I love how you have yours on the tree!
Thanks so much for joining the crawl! I wish I had TJ close so I could try the bangers!

I hope my local Trader Joe's have the Irish bangers. I love English sausage, I'm sure these will be as good and so perfect for Saturday.
