St. Pat's Tea Time

Hello everyone,
Thursday is St. Patrick's Day. I love to celebrate St. Pat's day,
because 52 years ago I had my second son on the 16th of March, 
I was in the hospital on St. Patrick's Day enjoying green jello.
He is the most wonderful son and he is amazing
today...52 years later.
Lucky Me.
I love Forsythia. I have planted a shrub, but it will be a few years
before it is large enough to cut long stems to bring into the house.
My green depression glass cup and saucer are
perfect for this holiday tablescape.
Sea foam green napkin ring with my handmade white napkins
and green napkins add to the different shades green on my tea table.
While shopping at Tuesday Morning last Sunday,
I purchased these cabbage leaf bowls. The plates are
from the Martha Stewart collection from years ago.
The vintage flatware is from my great-grandmother's
collection. The spoons have her monogram on the handle.
Red velvet cupcakes are ready for my granddaughters 
to consume after school this week. 
Vintage L.E. Smith moon and stars is used for my vase.
We can never have to much 'Good Luck' can we?
More shamrocks...

A mosaic to pin

Hope you have a Happy Saint Patrick's Day celebration.
We are going to have corned beef and cabbage dinner
on Thursday evening and plenty of leftovers. 
See you soon.
