Gettin’ My Green On!

More Treasures

“If I keep a green bough in my heart, then the singing bird will come.”       –Chinese Proverb

Today I’m sharing a little gallery of some green treasures in my stash – in honor of St. Patrick’s Day, of course.  It’s right around the corner, and I’m sure everyone is thinking green!

marchThis sweet little vintage planter says “Relpo” on the bottom and I don’t often see St. Patrick’s Day vintage items, so this is a favorite second-hand find.

march2This miniature chair came with a red couch at my favorite consignment shop!  they make quite a pair!  My chair fetish is legendary, but this one fit in my car and doesn’t need re-upholstered.  Bonus!

march3I found this vintage strand of beads at the thrift store that are chunky, funky and definitely in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day!

I hope you’re ready to get your green on!  Erin go Bragh!

Simple “Pots of Gold”

More Books, More Decorating, More Treasures

‘Tis better by far at the rainbows end to find not a pot of gold but the heart of a friend.’ — Irish saying

I hope you will enjoy a peek at my latest thrifty finds.  I don’t often see cute, vintage St. Patrick’s Day treasures, so this was a true “pot-of-gold” that made my day. I also love to gather up vintage books with retro graphics such as this little story-book and the Reader’s Digest Condensed edition peeking out from below.  They are so much fun to use in decorating because of their great colors and patterns.

St. Patrick’s Day is about celebrating a few little fun things:  a bright-green scarf, a tasty plate of corned-beef and cabbage, and perhaps the lucky little “pots-of-gold” in your life: a cozy home,  a shelf full of good books, a hot mug of tea and a faithful companion with whom to share the blessings.  Wishing you nothing but luck this week and all the year through.
