It's All About The Green

It's March 17th and St. Patrick's day is here, it seems weird since a few weeks ago we had snow here in British Columbia.  I was reading the other day in one of the blogs I follow though I can't remember which one that when you say the luck of the Irish your not meaning good luck but bad luck which is what I've been having at the second hand stores this past week.  I was bidding on a Sherman brooch in green and amber rhinestones which would have fitted in this post but the bidding went over my budget.  So this post is all about the green.

Back To The Hoosier For St. Patrick's Day

The Hoosier is holding green items Pyrex, Fire King, Glass and etc.

Whenever I see these dish towels with different countries names on them I think about people travelling and bringing them back for family and friends.

The Fire King mug  on the top left and right side is the same mug each side has a different saying.
The middle picture is a mid century modern tea set by Arklow made in the Republic of Ireland the pattern is Rhythm by Pat McEtheron.
The horses are made of green plastic and quite well made.

Top Row:
Left to Right
Green Enamel Brooch, Sprite Bottle, Elves
Middle Row:
Custard Bowls, Brooch, Paperweight
Bottom Row:
Moss on Brick, Lamp Body Of A Broken Lamp, 3 Small Green Bowls

The first picture is set up to try and look like a parlour.
The green bottle is by McGuinness and Co. Ltd. Made in Canada
The top picture on the right is green buttons my fiancé found at a garage sale.
The bottom picture is a figurine from the house that pops up in pictures around the yard.

Thanks for taking the time to visit.
