Irish Inspired

St. Patrick's Day is one of my favorite holidays. It's a fun day without the stress that comes along with some other holidays. My mom made it fun, feeding me green food such as green eggs and ham, green milk and pistachio pudding in a graham cracker crust. As an adult I still still crave that pistachio pudding pie, and my husband and I try to have a night out for some beer and Irish pub food. I have a mix of several nationalities in my family tree, but I definitely love celebrating the Irish that I get from my mom's family. Hopefully this time next year I will be planning a trip to Ireland for my husband and I!

Here it is, almost March, and I have some green jewelry to share with you. So whether you are looking for something to accent your St. Patrick's Day green attire, or just something green for an early jump on spring, here are some items you might like! Click on the picture or title for details.

wow - that's a lot of green! Very pretty - I especially like Emerald City necklace and the aventurine (I love aventurine! - not a highly precious gem, but makes everything around it SO precious!) Sounds like a good trip - I hope you get to go!

Beautiful pieces! I hope you and the Red get to visit the Emerald Isle in the not too distant future.

Thanks for the compliments.

Deb and Diane - It's something we've been saying for over two years now... maybe next year maybe next year. Next year WILL be the year :)

i.m.- No shamrocks, but thanks for the suggestion, I'll have to keep my eyes open!
