Thank you for your birthday wishes and songs! I loved them all!
I bought myself these dishes for my birthday. Actually I bought them the day I shopped with The Tablescaper, but tucked them away so I would be surprised for my birthday. :)
TJMAXX…and they are four leaf clovers, not shamrocks….I know…
Matching napkins, and green cabbage bowls for the soup..
Green glass charger plates by Gorham that I got at Lenox..50% off, so they were 5.00. They go perfectly with the glasses and this beautiful green glass cake plate from CTS..less than 4.00..can you believe that?
The Tablescaper gave me the beautiful matching platter for my birthday..Thank you, A.!
And the pretty Irish coffee glasses I won at Designs by Gollum..Thank you ML!
Ceramic shamrock with wipe off marker as a place marker..
I used carnations as the centerpiece the first time…
I removed the check mats, and put him in the middle and added black stem glasses…
Well, that concludes Irish tables..except for the one for the party on the 16th..you are coming, aren’t you? I set in the dining room so we would have more room..:)
And now for the doll part.
She hand embroiders the face and puts the name on the pocket for Ann, and collar for Andy…The hair is done by hand also.
They are beautiful..I still have the Andy she made for my son over 30 years ago…a wonderful memento..
She sells them and donates all the money to charity.
Or donates them to charities for a raffle…
She is an amazing woman. Her son was hit by a car and killed when he was 18, and her dear little grandson is seriously disabled due to a lack of oxygen when he was an infant. With all that heartache, she still has such compassion for others, and is so charitable…
If you have an little prayer in you for her little guy,Thomas, I know she would love it..
Thanks for visiting, and please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more tables Wed. night..
I hope to see you for Gollum’s Foodie Friday..
