As a girl who has a little bit o’ Irish in her, I certainly appreciate the merriment of St. Patrick’s Day. My father’s mother was of Irish decent; her maiden name Sinclair. Always loved her name.
Growing up, I didn’t get to be with my grandmother nearly as much as I would have liked, but the times I did see her I distinctly remember her being extraordinarily creative – she was always sewing and crocheting beautiful things. She was first and foremost a proud wife and mother of three; and had a remarkable air of independence about her.
She had beautiful blue eyes that always sparkled when she smiled…
In honor of my grandmother and St. Patty’s Day, here are a few green goodies that bring me a smile. I’d like to think she would have approved of these as well…
A table filled with wild greens. Loveliness.
A Celerie Kemble floral that makes my heart skip a beat.
For something sweet and fizzy, I always enjoy a green izze. Love the color combo on the packaging.
Someday I hope to travel with our family to Ireland – I’m told it’s one of the most amazing places in the world to ride.
Try not to get pinched today.
I’d love to hear about your Irish roots or even something green that you love!
