I decorated this wreath with ivy, white daisies, and a porcelain plaque with an Irish Blessing. The potatoes are a reference to the great potato famine, in Ireland, that caused my husband's ancestors to leave their homeland and immigrate to the United States.
This woolen wrap is perfect for a crisp spring day. It's made of the softest Irish wool. I love the Celtic knot design.................
And the colors are reversed on the other side. I have options!
Again, Celtic knots are a favorite of mine. Couldn't resist these earrings.
I've found a wonderful Irish fragrance called ...Innisfree.
The packaging describes the fragrance this way................
"The essence of Ireland. A celebration of femininity and nature. A magical fruit and floral fragrance including lavender oil distilled from our own fields in County Wicklow. Beneath the description, a quote:
"And I shall have some peace there,
for peace comes dropping slow......"
-W. B. Yeats 'The Lake Isle Of Innisfree'
It's always been a favorite of mine.
I'm dressed in the items that reflect my Celtic roots. After dinner, I have a date with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara as they navigate the obstacles that hamper their wedded bliss. No St. Patrick's Day is complete, until you've watched The Quiet Man...it's a tradition at my house.
I'll leave you with the Irish Blessing that hangs on my wreath.............
May the road rise to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
