Tabletop Tues…… Outdoor Wednesday


Time to bring out the shamrocks!  To me, St.Patrick’s Day tells me it won’t be long till Spring..the showin’ of the green… Right now..we are showing white!

My friend Foley  at Foley’s Follies made a beautiful birthday card for me using the picture of the wreath .  I loved it..

I join Susan for Outdoor Wednesday .  We have snow from the last storm, and another is supposedly headed our way..

I am also joining Marty for Tabletop Tuesday

A little breakfast set up..Soda Bread, Tea, Bacon , Egg and strawberries..

I hope you will join me for the Second  Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl .  Anything Irish is fine..it is all for fun!

Sign up on Mr. Linky the 16th.  More details later, but please mark the date.  We had a lot of fun last year!

It will be an Irish theme for Tablescape Thursday this week..come back and take a peek if you can!  ♣♣♣

  2. Very nice looking breakfast... too bad you can't be looking out at lush green grass and flowering blooms!

    Looking forward to your St. Patty's event again tis year..will have to start digging through my boxes...

  6. Kathleen, there is a shamrock on your egg! Love that pretty wreath and the way the sun shines through it. When was your birthday? Did I miss it! I'll start trying to come up with something for the party! Can't wait! As always, I enjoyed your comment on my most recent post. I gave up on figuring out the "follower" thingy! It doesn't seem to mean anything! It kind of reminds of "friends" on facebook. Where did all of these people come from anyway? laurie

  7. Too sweet. The little sheep is adorable. I have to come up with something Irish for a potluck. I have no clue what to make. Soda bread looks good.

  8. Nothing but white outside of my window too, Kathleen! But your shamrock gives me hope of things to come. I'm looking forward to your St. Paddy's party :)

  9. Kathleen ... I love seeing the green. Hope we see it outside sooner than later.

    Breakfast looks tasty ... how fun to have a shamrock on the egg. What's on the lid of the teapot?

  10. That green stain glass piece is lovely. I am believe you are ready for Mr. St. Patrick.

  11. Where's the Irish coffee? Breakfast looks good!

  12. Love the clover sticker on the egg....LOLLOLLOLOL! So cute.

    I've been thinking of you being St. Pat's day is getting close!

  13. Oh Kathleen, this is so pretty and so inviting. I would love to sit down to a beautiful table setting like this for breakfast. Sounds so yummy. Thanks so much for joining TT today. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

  14. Lovely setting and breakfast looks delicious...hope warm weather, grass and flowers come soon to you! Stop by and say hi sometime.

  15. Kathleen, your Irish breakie looks delish and I love that teapot, cup and napkin! Alright, you've made me want to see if I can scrounge up a wee bit o' the green for the 16th and join the fun!


  16. Hi Kathleen!
    What time shall I come over for breakfast?

    I will definitely be in on your St. Pat's event ..it won't be a tabletop. but I'll find something historical to show! :-)

    We didn't get snow here in Brooklyn today ..only rain! Whew! The storm isn't over but I'm hoping that it will stay rain.

  17. Hi Kathleen,
    I can't pass up a party, especially when we are celebrating the green. What kind of Kelley would I be afterall if I didn't embrace the Irish theme. I love your Irish breakfast setting and your cute header table.
    Now, I'm off to follow the leprachauns and look for my pot of gold to help me participate in your annual St Patrick Day Blog Crawl. Can't wait!!!

  18. Love the St. Pat's tablescape, mine is just finished and will post next week. Hope you find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

    Have a great day.


  19. I will participate in this, I just have to remember, I am following you now so that is a good reminder. Also, I will be hosting a Fun foto friday the first Friday of every month, first one being next week. Hope you can participate:)

  20. I know I have something green tucked away in my cupboards. Looking forward to your St. Patrick's Day celebration, Kathleen. Sorry to see that the snow is hanging on.

  21. Wow! Look at you all ready for St. Patrick's Day! I don't believe I have anything green anymore. I will just have to remedy that real soon if I am to participate in your Second Annual St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl!

  22. My husband would love your breakfast! He says no one made Irish soda bread like his grandmother. Have a great week!

  23. Kathleen

    The shamrock on the egg takes the cake! Love this tablescape...you certainly do make every day a holiday! How special!

  24. Kathleen...
    Keep my food warm.
    I'll be right over...
    What a cheery place setting and scrumptious breakfast, on such a dismal day.
    Now you've inspired me to find something to put together for a St Pat's table.
    I'm keeping the faith in what you said...'StPat's Day..tells me it
    won't be long till Spring'.
    From 'Your Lips - To God's Ears'!

  25. Congrats! I just read you won the Irish mugs over at Designsbygollum. Just in time for the St. Patricks day crawl which sounds like so much fun. I hear another snow storm is headed your way. Hope it just skims the island because enough is enough already:)

  26. Top 'o the morning to ye!! So very pretty! Love the green glasses, and I like those little cloches beside the plates. The tiny shamrock on the egg is really cute!


  27. Hi Kathleen - I'm back to congratulate you for winning the Irish coffee mugs at Designs by Gollum. Isn't that just perfect timing?

  28. I'm loving your new green look and header photo to the blog - getting us all ready for St. Patrick's day and spring! That stained glass piece is a favorite of mine and I love it when you bring it out each year...that and of course Spud!

    The Irish breakfast looks good!

  29. You have some pretty things! I'm working on St. Pat's tablescape today and realizing that I don't have things for this holiday!

  30. Wow, what a gorgeous shamrock wreath. I love the tablescape too. You have a sense of what makes a place setting fun. Come on spring!!!
    Hugs, Jeanne

  31. I miss all the Meme's! Yours is so cute. Those napkins and napkin rings are darling!
    I'm Irish and but for some reason have stopped decorating much for St. Patrick's Day. I used to do a lot before Patrick died, but I love visiting and looking at what other people do. :)

  32. Hey, Congratulations to both of us! Your little breakfast setting is just the perfect way to start off the Irish holidays. I wish I had 1/2 as much shamrock items as you have. I've been putting out green stuff for days around here. Now if we can just get some SUNLIGHT, I can take some photos for the party!!!

    Thanks for all the really cute inspirations you've already kick-started us with.


  33. Love all your St. patty's Day touches!!

  34. This is great, K.
    Somehow, I missed Marty doing Tabletop Tuesday...hmmm, I am so falling behind.

  35. Looking forward to celebrating St Patrick's Day again with you! Breakfast looks great! Especially the sticker on the egg :) Very festive!

  36. How did I miss this one? Your volumes of Irish amaze me@. Great napkin ring. Everything looks so good, I'll be right over...
