Clover Love

Clover Love
is in
Full Bloom!
I found this 3 section clover glass candy dish at
Goodwill last week for 50 cents, I was stunned.

Sent her thru the dishwasher and stuck her up front.
And filled her with $1.50 bag of Valentines candy
clearance, the new color of love..Green M&Ms.
I got a bunch and some jewelry bags because we are
gonna give each baseball player on both teams a bag
of them for St. Patricks Day.

I got 1 of my iron display easels and put a gorgeous
ribbon on this metal sign I got for $5 at TJMaxx
last month.  I remembered the gingham after
Christmas ribbon I snagged at Ballard's Design
for 1/3 the reg. price.  Got it in Red, Green and Black.
I saw a button on a blog this week with this clover
angel but not the Irish saying.  Hope that Sunbeam
like flash is warming you and reminding you that
 the sun will shine again this Spring season.
Now, that's better.
This is my Ode to St. Patrick's Day in the entry hall.
My Grandmother's maiden name is Julia Kelley.
She will be coming for a visit during St. Pats week.
She lives in Massachusetts and is going to Florida
with Auntie so she's flying in to Texas. :)

This is last years edition and 
I just saw the 2010 today at the grocery.
There is 1 for each season and I ordered them once
I got a hold of the Fall edition.
I guess it will keep coming out each season.
I grabbed this in the craft section of Walmart for $2.
The pot o'luck can be used at Halloween too to make a
pb&j sandwich with gummy worms oozing out. 
I can use the clover to cut fruit, esp.
Honeydew melon for those fruit bouquets.
Or, I could make my crew some scones.

This looks like something right out of Tablescape
Thursday with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
Which makes me realize Phyllis Hoffman may have
a blog here somewhere, hmmmm.
all the dishes have shamrock clover and 3d basket weave, yummy!

Check out the cool Irish Blessings.

  1. What pretty decorations you have. I love the cookie cutters too. I'm going to head over to my Walmart this weekend and see if I can pick one up. Thanks for the tip. What a nice post :>)

  2. Hi There,
    Just came back for a little visit and to wish you a Happy Birthday. I hope you have a day filled with all the things that bring you joy, and that all your birthday wishes come true!

  3. That looks like Belleek china..which is beautiful!
    I love your Irish display...I did shamrocks too!

  4. I was wondering where to buy shamrock cookie cutters and now I can run to Walmart. Thanks for the information. I think it all looks so festive. I am part Irish and like to kick up my heels and do the jig that day too.

  5. Love green M&M's !! Yes it is clover time!!

  6. I haven't seen the green M&Ms. How cute! They are perfect for your new little clover dish. How funny that we both featured Phyllis Hoffman's Spring magazine today. This is the first one I've picked up. I'll look for more in the future. Thanks for stopping by to visit. Hope to see you again.

  7. Very pretty dish, and it looks even prettier with the colorful green M&M's in it.... and oh I'm so hoping you would show us your lovely inherited round table some day.... ;)

    Have a lovely day, and weekend, Denise!

  9. I've been looking for those green m&m's everywhere for my daughter's candy bar at her wedding. Can you tell me what store you bought them at? I gather it's your birthday or soon will be, hope it's a happy one! thanks for sharing, Sandy

  19. Hi I just discovered your blog over at the Carnival of Shopping...I'm an Houston area blogger, too and participated in Moms in Touch for about nine years!!! It's nice to "meet" you...come on over to my blog and say hi. I just did a giveaway for the Celebrate magazine...One of my fAVS!!!!


  20. Denise, I really like the way you put a bow on your card & set the GREEN M&M's in that really great bargain 3-leaf clover dish. It is the perfect little touch for your entry.
    Your Easter table plans are very creative, too. I look forward to seeing it all come together. I haven't even thought about it yet!

    Thanks for stopping by the Gazebo House.


Be blessed! You make my life more full of JOY!
