Kathleen, from Cuisine Kathleen is having her annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Crawl on Wednesday, March 16th, and it's always a lot of fun! This year I had the pleasure of receiving the special Traveling Shamrock Tablecloth from Sarah, at Hyacinths For The Soul, who had it last year. The Traveling Shamrock Tablecloth was started by Marigene @ In The Middle of Nowhere, who sent it to Kathleen @ Cuisine Kathleen, with the stipulation that it be passed on to another blogger for the following year. Kathleen passed it to Rett @ The Gazebo House , who sent it to Mary @ Home Is Where The Boat Is, who then sent it to Sarah @ Hyacinths For The Soul. It's always a surprise who receives it for the following year.
I'm using by Belleek teacup for tea and the pretty teapot that my daughter bought me years ago. The little Annalee leprechaun has joined us for some fun.
When my late beloved hubby and I visited Ireland back in September of 2009, we found my maiden name's shield of honor.
I love to do counted cross stitch and made a pillow for some St. Paddy's Day decor.
Can you join me for a simple tea of cheese and crackers, and some Irish Breakfast Tea? You can look at my journal of our trip, if you'd like. I found the shamrock shaped cheese at Costco. Isn't it pretty on the plate, that my daughter gave me. It matches the pitcher that she gave me, too. My mom gave me the darling kissing leprechaun couple, and also the shamrock shaped candle holder, that are so vintage.
We stayed in Cabra Castle, in Ireland, as part of our tour. Of course, I had to have a cup of tea in our room.
I always thought this was so cute of my hubby, when he stood by the Knight-in-Shining-Armor, since he was always my very own Knight. You'll never know how much I miss him.
I'll leave you with our photo book of our dream vacation to Ireland. The clovers were ones that I found while there and pressed into my Irish Blessings Journal.
