St. Patty's Day at my house

Happy Friday All~I'm off to the gym this morning but I wanted to share a bit of green with you; I don't have much authentic pieces as I'd like but I hope you enjoy!

The vase was a gift from my brother and sister of my heart this last year; straight from the Belleek showroom. 
I love this saying!
My morning table set for hubby and I, complete with coffee mugs from Ireland.
Fifty years ago,my sister made her first trip to our grandparents homeland.  She brought back several things for my mom and dad and these two mugs were among the gifts.  Both were made it Ireland and I love the top one the best.  They were handed down to me and I cherish them.
Tomorrow we will have the traditional "American-Irish" food; I've been told they don't eat Corned Beef too much in Ireland.  Today is crazy busy with the gym, dog appointment, cleaning, babysitting and entertaining-all such wonderful things to do.
Have a wonderful day and remember it's a great day to be alive.
It's All Good, Noreen


  1. Morning Noreen,
    Happy St. Patrick's day to you hon!
    Those are beautiful mugs, and neat that they are authentic Irish mugs!
    That is a darling lil plate your brother and his wife gave to you,
    and I like the saying as well.
    I have a bit of Irish in me too.
    My dad was very proud of his Irish heritage.
    So keep those Irish eyes a smilin
    and have a happy Irish weekend full
    of Sweet Irish Blessings,
    Now I need to go and get my green checkered tablecloth out, was thinking about it earlier and forgot..........thanks for the reminder, I am ready for spring colors that is for sure.

  2. Those two mugs are very nice. Mom has several pieces of Belleek, some handed down from her Mom and some of her own. She is hoping she can get more. It is just so pretty.

    Happy St. Paddy's Day to you.

  3. Love your favorite mug as well. You will have to share traditional Irish food. Although I do love the corned beef once a year. I have some Irish blood flowing through me. Someday I would love to pull all the family histories together. My hubby's family has a book. The first of his blood line to step foot in America was the first Mennonite Bishop in the country. It's quite a book. Have a grand weekend my dear!

  4. I've never cooked corned beef and cabbage (not even for St. Patrick's Day) ... but it just sounds good, so I think I will this year.

    Thank you for sharing your Irish treasurers.

    Enjoy your day!

  5. Good morning and Happy St. Patrick's day to you! I love your mugs. What a neat thing to have. And the little plate is darling. Enjoy your busy, and yet fun day. HUGS

  6. I have no Irish decor! My favorite Auntie....Connie was her name, was married to a man named Walter Devlin. VERY Irish!!! They really did it up big!!! Have a wonderful day!!

  7. sounds like a fun filled busy day for you...have fun!! and happy Saint Pattys girlfriend is having a party and made green jello shots...

  8. I do a bit of the Irish here-and this morning I heard the Irish tenors singing Oh Danny Boy and it brought a tear to my eye thinking of my father -Irish and loved the music-and he's been a long time gone. Blessings to you today- xo Diana
