But, last year I happened upon a yard sale with boxes from "Grandma's Attic" and I found my first St. Patrick's Day decorations. So, I pulled it out this year and gathered up whatever green things I could find and built myself a wee little display.
I literally looked for anything green and threw it up on the cabinet.
I bought that ladder not long ago and it was in the "to be painted" pile, but green was just the right color for today. I bought a bunch of old Dennison seal books a few years ago, but I never realized I had a St. Patrick's Day one. A horse ribbon is mandatory in the decorating department, I am told.
I bought the gold tree after Christmas for 90% off I figured if I could get it that cheap (89¢), why not? Gold is so not my thing. I borrowed our green Mardi Gras Beads that we got at the parade and threw them up there willy nilly.
Every body uses an old truck in their decor, so why be different? But, who else adds a giant button and some tiny toadstools than me?
Spotted these two dolls in my very own booth last week, so I brought them back home.
Shopping at it's cheapest.
There were three funny leprechauns in the bag of things I bought.
This one is my favorite. Maybe he will take a spin in the old VW in the background.
Ever the faithful fan of my letter cards - I added NO PINCHING to an old green chalkboard.
A little bit of fun in this time of not much going on the way in decorating. I'm anxious to see my Easter things since I wasn't able to decorate last year. I won't get it out for a couple more weeks though. But, I can't wait. Vintage bunnies and chickies OH MY!
