St. Patrick's Day Tea Time!

Hi friends!

I couldn't let this day slip by without wishing you a very


It's an important day to my family,

though this year none of us could get together.

And whew do I ever miss my father today!

Thought I'd put together a little tea-for-one

and gather some of my more favorite Irish-themed

things to make a tea vignette with my twin Adderly teacups.

I used to have a fairly large collection of shamrock

teacups, but I have since sold or gifted most of them.

I cannot even begin to tell you how many proper

 St. Patrick's Afternoon Tea Parties 

 I have had to cancel due to snow storms. 

(It's entirely too much work to do to have to then cancel.)

 So I stopped having them some years ago.

 And of course today is in the 70s. 

Not complaining, but still!

Last week we had a huge snow storm. 

Life in mid-Ohio is not boring!

I made a cinnamon coffee cake and in my excitement putting this together forgot about the cake. Oops. 

I received three wonderful cards (above) this year.

Thank you Marina, Ginny and Mary Beth.

They help things look and feel so festive. 

And I can't close without sharing a pic of my grand girl

with her smiling Irish eyes (and her two new teeth!)

I think she may have just quit Irish dancing for this pic her momma too, because her hands are still in fists.

Sure hope one day soon she may begin lessons.

God love her, she watches the videos

and tries to self teach. Precious.

A world of wishes at your command.

God and his angels close to hand.

Friends and family their love impart,

And Irish blessings in your heart!

As always, thank you for your visit!
