W is or Window, My St. Patty's Day Window!

Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!
I am having so much fun decorating my kitchen window for the Holidays, I can't believe I never thought of doing it before. Here are some pics of my latest Holiday installment, 
Saint Patrick's Day. 

I wanted to create a somewhat "Earthy" feel this time around, so first I laid down a thick layer of Spanish Moss that was dyed green. It almost gives it the feel of a forest floor. 


The little ceramic Leprechaun and 'Pot of Gold" are vintage from the late 70's. My Mom painted the Leprechaun and I "think" she painted the pot of gold too. I used my Sizzix to cut the Shamrocks out of felt that are hanging on the tree. 


The little mice are new Annalees that I bought at Marshalls for a fraction of what they normally cost. 


And do you see that sweet little lass sitting on the spigot of the birdhouse? She was made by the uber talented Elizabeth at Bluebird Papercrafts and I won her in a giveaway! But, I must say, I think E sent me the orneriest one of the clan because that little lass would not stay put and every time I came in the kitchen, she had jumped down and was playing in the green with the mice!


Here's a shot of the window at night.

I also threw together a little centerpiece for the kitchen table.

The Irish Santa was a gift from Mr. Bubbles and my Tiny Bubbles (giggle) a few years ago. The sparkly lantern also came from Marshalls. 

I just put some more moss on a glass plate and added the little garland and coins for accents. Now please stop by 
How Sweet the Sound for more PINK (or GREEN) inspiration!

  3. Your St. P's collection is so cute! My mom was also into ceramics in the 70's and we have so many things that she made, but NO leprechauns! Linda
