Hope Your St Patty's Day Was Fun!

Having not lived near family in over 30 years ~ I surround myself with pieces of them for every holiday!

This is Grama's depression glass candy dish ~ filled with what else but spearmint's for St Patty's Day.

The Corned Beef was cooking all afternoon ~

Mint Cupcakes with homemade cream cheese frosting ~ mmmmm ~ sitting on a St Patty's Day cake dish Grama made in her ceramics class 35 years ago!

This Bobble Head Troll was the prize for the person who had a special mark under their plate ~ Franky won!

Notice the vintage 1970's tablecloth from Mom.

Jaci, Frank and Franky digging in.

One last look at my finished Puzzle Pieces ~ they are on their way to my pal Pat Winter

I am off to work in my garden for the day. Frank picked up a load of horse manure from a friends farm and I have to bring it ~ a bucket at a time ~ down in my backyard.
I am not even going to take a shower cause I will surely need one when I am done this afternoon!
OH and GUESS WHAT???!!! TODAY ~ I will planting my Sweet Peas !!!
Enjoy your day!
