Though I am not from the old sod,

Not Galway or County Cork,

I was born  here on Long “Ireland”

In the great state of New York!

 I am proud to be American

But my roots are truly green,

I can hear my daddy sing to me

I’ll take you home, Kathleen!

Let’s get into the spirit

Put your shamrocks on,

Find the pot of gold,

And catch a leprechaun!

Thanks so much for coming

For greening up and doing

The 8th St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl!!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  THIS YEAR’S TABLE~ A Cozy St. Patrick’s Dinner

I am running out of Irish things to post, but tried a new combination of things I had!

This year’s table is full of things I have had for years!


The Irish wool placemats and shamrock ceramic napkin holders were gifts from my sister years ago.


I used emerald green plates from Pfaltzgraf and faux Belleek from CTS.  Green glass bowls hold a ceramic shamrock for the names.

Table in memory of a fine Irish friend, Judy Finn Gibbons who passed away in Dec.  May she be celebrating with St. Patrick himself!

A lacy white napkin from Horchow wrapped in a shamrock napkin, a long ago gift from my neice.  Black flatware from the clearance at BBB.


Waterford stems and goblets by Anthropologie that I got at a .99 store!

Shamrock bread plates from Alma, The Tablescaper, as well as the green pitcher.




The centerpiece started with a dollar wire ring with oasis pressed in.  Place it on a large round platter.

Fill it with greens from the yard and mini carns from the super market.







If you’d like my recipe for Irish Soda Bread, just type it in in search bar on the sidebar.

Last night we had some Shamrock Ravioli from Costco and Shrimp that I just sauteed in some wine.




A simple Alfredo sauce is on the ravioli.  I don’t know the Gaelic equivalent of Alfredo!

Time for you to show your green!

Looks like it is GREEN for GO!

No thanks to Microsoft, but thanks to a FB follower, Katy Kehle,  I was able to get back to a screen so I could reset my computer.  They told me there was nothing they could do, but she told me to hold down the control key while rebooting so I could get a menu! 
I would have really been disappointed to break the tradition of the St. Patrick’s Day blog crawl!  So many of you have been doing the blog crawl since it started.   Yes, I know we are a small group, quality not quantity, Smile!
Everyone is welcome, it has to be a new post, and of course, feature anything St. Patricky!
I’ve been busy baking, and I have a new recipe to try for Brown Irish Soda Bread.  It is from my dear bil, who is Irish born.  I hope to make it for the party!
I would love you to join in if you have something to share!
In the spirit of the sharing of the green, please stop by and enter to win this cheerful yellow polka dot flatware in a white pail from Pfaltzgraf.
18 Piece Yellow Flatware With Pail Caddy
There are 18 pieces and it is perfect for your Spring and Summer tables.
 I used it for a table awhile ago.

Dig out your greens, and come crawl with us!
See you on the 16th, around 7 PM, NY time!
Thanks for stopping by!

I downloaded Windows 10 and my computer crashed!

I resisted and resisted but finally downloaded Windows 10. My screen just blinks, red, green, blue etc. I called Microsoft and they said as I couldn't get the Dell logo to come up they couldn't get in to my computer to help me. They said my 3 year old computer was very old! It worked fine until they did the download. I don't know if I will be back up and running by the 16th for the party. I am doing this from my ipad, but I don't think I could do pictures and the link up from it. I will be ready in case I can get it fixed, but I wanted to warn you it mey not happen before you go to any trouble! I'll keep you informed. :(
