French Holy Water Font

I just added this beautiful antique French Style Holy Water Font to my webstore. I wish I knew the history of it and where it came from. My mother always had a Holy Water Font in our home, so this one is not necessarily from a church. A lovely and unusual piece regardless of its origins.

My intent was to list a lot of Easter items today. But it’s such a miserable, dreary day that none of the pictures I took turned out nice. Hoping for a better day tomorrow, so please stop back!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I almost forgot it was St. Patrick's Day! Maybe because it's sunny and warming up here. Usually we have a traditional St. Patrick's day snow storm. I don't miss it!

Hope you all have a wonderful, safe St. Patrick's Day!

Decorating for Saint Patrick’s Day is challenging!

There really isn’t a lot out there for those of us who like to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course, it could be said that I tend to over-do. But if it’s green, I’m going start grabbing it so I can add to my decorations for next year.

I found this cute vintage planter at a local thrift shop. It was a must have. I also have picked up a few Lefton Leprechaun figurines over the years and these darling Irish children dancing a jig.

And last summer I picked up these sweet vintage chenille shamrock pins at a church rummage sale. I got a bag full. I have them scattered around the house.

We have a local winery that makes Saint Patrick’s Day wine. I’m hoping to get out that way to pick up a bottle. But my husband grumbles, “that’s just apple wine with green food coloring.” I’ve got a few drops of Irish blood, so it’s Irish wine to me!!

Oh, I missed blogging!

And I missed reading all my favorite blogs the most! I can’t wait to catch up with everyone!

I was away from the blog, ebay, and my website to work on a special project that unfortunately didn’t go as smoothly as planned. I had hoped by now I’d be able to share it with you. But nothing is ever easy it seems. It became bigger then me, so I had to get some help, and it all goes well from this point, it will be done it in a few weeks. Despite all the bumps (boulders) on the road, I’m very excited about my project!!

For sanity’s sake I snuck out to a few thrifts and antique stores. Oh, how I’m looking forward to the weather breaking and garage sale season starting!

I found this cute compact. I love the little bird, and of course that it’s from the Toronto Exhibit. Not sure what that is and I hope to research it soon.

The inside is real interesting as it the mirror swings out to reveal the rouge.

I picked up a sweet Saint Patrick’s Day find that I’ll share with you next time. I’m off to start catching up on your blogs!!
