Happy St. Patrick's Day!



May you always have walls for the winds,
a roof for the rain, tea beside the fire,
laughter to cheer you, those you love near you,
and all your heart might desire




An interesting note about the tea cup in the picture for Ann...

I inherited a tea set of Belleek China from Ireland and this is one cup and saucer. From their website;-"Belleek China was founded by John Caldwell Bloomfield in 1857. He founded his company with the ethos of perfection and the persuit of high standards. Each piece is handmade and handpainted by the most skilled craftsmen in County Fermanagh, Ireland."

  1. The artist should have added an extra time to the shamrocks on the tea cup. I wore green to my adult ESL class and told them about the 4 leaf clover.

    We have quite a celebration today. Some teachers wore green others didn't. Some people are getting a petition to make St Patrick's day a public holiday.

    Thanks for your comment on my shopping trolley.

  5. What an adorable picture. Drinking from a cup and saucer was a special treat when we were kids. There is no reason why this little dee dee can't feel special too.

    HAPPY ST. PADDY'S DAY!
