I ve been playing with a leprechaun!

So far he has been behaving. You know they say the leprechauns are often pretty mischievous.

I did think I heard something during the night and I think thats when they get into trouble.. but everything was in order when I woke up. well, not really... everything was a disaster, but thats how I left it.. I cant blame it on anyone else. Not even the silly leprechaun.

St pattys day is just around the corner. That's one holiday that I dont have any decorations for. nothing! notta! zip! Zilch! except one leprechaun.. well now two, if you count this little guy. My family says, I dont need to have any st pattys stuff cause we're not even close to being irish.. but isnt everyone irish on st pattys day?

I did see a cute little garland at tj maxx and I wish I had bought it. maybe I'll have to make one. oh maybe I'll just settle with the two little green friends I have now. I have no desire to decorate in a big way for st pattys.. but it would be nice to have a few things dont ya think?
does anyone want to join me in making a st pattys garland? not a swap.. just a challange?? Maybe I need a little inspiration! not enough time to put a swap together, but that would have been fun....
Working on some easter stuff too.. will show you next time.
for now.. its off to work for me.
have a great day!

Oh! He is ADORABLE!!!

I so wanted to make St. Patty's Day things this year, but had to jump ahead and get Easter going. Planning on it for next year.

I'm like you, Viv, no St. Patty's stuff. I was at Joann's the other day and they have lots. But I didn't buy any of it. I went straight to the Easter goodies. I'll have to think about an Irish wreath.

I'll take that challenge! I don't usually decorate for St. Patty's Day but you've inspired me.

Love the leprochaun!!! I'm not a big St. Patty's decorator myself but i think I may scrounge up a couple things since Easter is so far off this year. I am ready for SPRING!!!

From someone who's half Irish, let me say that he's a stunning example of a wee little leprechaun! Hope he brings you lot's 'o luck this St. Patty's and beyond! Awesome work!

Love him! I don't have one thing for the big green day. Guess I better think about a banner too!

He is so darn cute! I only have a couple of things for St. Patty's Day. A little porcelain pitcher with hand painted shamrocks and an Erzgebirge little girl carrying a shamrock, but that's it. I really need to make a few things. I think my kids would love to have a couple more decorations around for St. Patty's

What a cute leprechaun, Viv! I'm looking forward to seeing what else you come up with - banner and more! Since Easter's pretty late this year, should be time to decorate for St. Patrick's Day & then Easter too! Can't wait 'til I can put out those pastel bunnies!
