I've never been much into St.Patrick's day other than wearing green so I won't get pinched. But, when you thrift and go to as many yard sales as I do, you're bound to come across some vintage St. Patrick's items. There's not much out there and it's hard to find. But, that's okay by me. It all fits in a shoe box, which is great in the fact that it takes hardly any room to store, but it also is problematic because sometimes I can't find it among all the holiday tubs.
It all fits on my pseudo mantle. The big Beistle Leprechaun was new this year. I actually found two of them, but I only put one out. He came with the other die cuts in the window frame.
A few little Leprechauns, some green things and a pack of Dennison labels.
That green hat was a waaaaaay after Christmas 10¢ markdown find. I think it was a gift box. But, with a little gold braiding, it became the perfect St. Patrick hat. The Annalee is really a gardener, but she works in her in a pinch. A PINCH! HA HA HA. Oh, I do amuse myself sometimes. (It's late).
Ah, there he is in all his giantness. He's really great. Alas, he will not fit in the shoe box.
Some wee party hats, game cards and an old Hearts game card round it out.
I have a lot of vintage Easter and it's some of my favorite stuff. But, for some reason, I don't always get it out. I don't know why. I haven't decided this year. I donated a lot of it last year. I might be brutal and really downsize it this year. Ha. I say that then I see the foil eggs, chenille chicks and German bunnies and think I LOVE IT ALL. We'll see what happens.
Have a happy St. Patrick's Day!
Don't get pinched!
