This is my lone Leprechaun ..

A Bordalo Pinneiro plate purchased at TJ Maxx for five bucks. I know , I know it isn’t clovers but, it is green !

The white plate is a Southern Living plate that I scored at the thrift store for $2.99  - still in the box and the person who owned it had taped pictures of how to decorate it ! First I found the box but, no plate….Well I know from thrifting that all you have to do is dig and look and dig some more and I found it ! I had the black ribbon and I can change it out for the seasons.

The clover box is from the dollar store a couple of years ago. The other things I already had.

Lucky you – I mean Lucky Me  - basket I found a couple of months ago at the thrift store for a buck !

I need to add on to my St Patty’s Day decor ….

Hugs ~ Kammy

P.S. I remember St Patty’s day as a little girl because our school had a contest each year on who wore the most green….Yep, I won in my classroom (I even wore green unddies ! LOL ) I got to be in the school parade……..

You got to show your green undies in a parade? Lol.
I think this is one of differences between Canada and the US.
You guys decorate for everything and have the coolest stuff in the stores to do so. We will barely nod at St. Patrick's Day here. Except for the beer, there is always lots of beer here.
