What a difference a month makes! When we celebrated Valentine's day last month it was cold and Winter weather. Then a month later, St. Patrick's day seems to be the start of Spring! So I've been "Greening" the cottage. Since Easter comes late this year, I'll keep my St. Patrick's green around all month. Here's a little early spring fluffing at my washstand. My little chalkboard was giving birthday greetings this week for our daughter Katy.
My cloch has captured a little Irish angel. I think he's singing a sweet Irish ditty. I've used dried split peas for a green base.
Early spring asparagus stalks -- I love fresh asparagus! And some sheep. (I know it's early spring because their wool hasn't been sheared yet.)
This jar has captured a leprechan and his loot -- but he really doesn't look to unhappy about it. Maybe he's thinking of split pea soup!
All arranged on one of my big cabbage leaf placemats.
My sideboard has changed for Spring as well. The white runner has been switched for a green one.
Would you like a bit of Irish tea?
A small collection of little Irish cottages and a church.
Looks like instead of a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow -- I have a sugar scuttle of gold coins.
A few more signs of Spring in the kitchen.
Bunnies and a bird nest....
....and a shamrock pail filled with cabbage and another bunny.
....and garden flag. It's beginning to look like Spring!
Are things "greening up" at your cottage too?
