A little bit of Luck

A restful weekend here in Annapolis, in no small part thanks to a crazy burned out electrical transformer that led to a blown out Verizon box that led to a service call to happen between 9am and 9pm that led to a mandatory day at home.  It is a wonder how we ever did anything without the internet…or Fios TV. Anyway, it did give me time to put together a St. Patrick Day mantel.  I have never attempted to capture the luck of the Irish in my decor, but like my Valentine’s mantel, I am quite pleased that the simplest additions really do have major impact.  Do you like the sparkly shamrock? I give the Princess full credit!


Some green depression, vintage postcards and a bunting of shamrock pennants gives homage to Old Saint Patrick.

Vintage St. Patrick postcards are known for their amusing nature and exuberant love of the perfect Irish lass! I love these examples of both.


My Hero also kept busy this weekend.  He was able to hang my darling new antique sampler…a post for another time. Thank goodness he had a reliable helper.  Someone has to chose the perfect nail!

  2. The day was certainly not wasted. You put the mandatory stay at home to good use. 🙂 I love your collection of glass. I pull my depression and green glass out this time of year as well. Great to welcome St. Patrick as well as spring! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,

    1. I agree! I did a little antique shopping this weekend and my husband I’d scratching his head over a few purchases.
      Vintage items speak to me..never really heard anything in Pottery Barn.
