I'm ready for St. Patrick's Day!


St. Patrick's Day was always special when I was growing up. My grandfather would always bring green carnations to his ladies: Nana, Mom, my sister and I. We would all enjoy a traditional Irish meal of corned-beef and cabbage and the sounds of Irish music could be heard from one end of the house to the other. I do miss those days~ and my grandparents. They blessed me with wonderful memories to share with my son Rich.
We always wore "something green" and a shamrock on St. Patty's. I think my Nana would have liked this piece. I've already sold one the first day I listed it on Etsy. I plan to wear mine on St. Patrick's day as I cook corned beef and cabbage for my clan and remember back to those days~just how LUCKY I am.

Only recently have we confirmed that there is a bit of the blarney in the family tree and of course I married into lots of blarney, lol. I've been cooking corned beef, cabbage and boiled potatos for many years. It's one of my favorite dishes whether to celebrate St. Pat's of Flag Day.
Sweet necklace!
Enjoy,
Lois
