St. Patrick's day will be here soon so I thought I would do a little decorating for it. After all, my favorite color is green. And gold!
Recently I volunteered at a Church rummage sale and went away with a few treasures that are perfect for this post.
I bought a set of 6 Limoges dinner plates for $5! 2 have small chips but pretend that you don't know that.
The tatted green striped towel belonged to my Great Auntie, as did the white fringe piece. If you look closely, it has 4 leaf clovers made into it. On top of the plates is a small handpainted something or another, not sure if it is just a wall hanging piece or a coaster? But anyway I liked it just the same, especially for 10 cents!
Here is a closer view of it, along with the green art glass enameled water tumblers that I have shown before.
I added some glitter shamrocks to St. Pattify it a bit. Not sure if that is a word! lol
I also got this cute little leprechaun baby felt ornament for 10 cents at the Church sale. I thought he, or she, would be perfect in this little boullion cup filled with gold, to represent the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!
It's not very fancy, but here is the table set with the plates. It looks a little boring so that is why I saved this photo til the end! :)
Recently I purchased this tea cup at a resale shop for $3. I thought it would be nice for the occasion. It is made in Staffordshire, England By Royal Kendal. I don't believe it is anything too spectacular but I like Lily of the Valley. I have a bed of these that bloom in early Summer and they are so fragrant!
There's even a little sprig on the inside of the cup! How cute, right?
