As Long As The Shamrock Grows Green


I'm finding some inspiration around the shop with a little green- my favorite color- and some lovely old Irish tunes.

Things are looking more cheerful around Windsor Terrace today. The bulbs are peeking out of the ground, they're cooking up green bagels at Terrace Bagels and the police barricades are going up in anticipation of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade and ensuing drinking at Farrell's Bar.

I thought that this was an inspired use of sheet music- of which I have oodles.

Seltzer btls

Thinking spring: I culled all my celtic colored seltzer bottles from my personal stash and put them in a sunny window.

Green hanky

Also at my home: a pretty, if grandmotherly, framed hanky.

Framed flower cards

Available in the shop: Antique Flower Lotto Game Cards in a perfect chippy old green frame ($95)
