Luck of the Irish to Us!

**Please, please, please imagine my voice saying all of this in an Irish accent. Because that is how I'm writing it.**

We made a "garlic." It's a garland, really--but my kiddos can't wrap their lips around that word. So it's our "St. Patrick's Garlic."

It was fun and easy. I just cut a million shamrocks out of green paper using my Silhouette. Getting the buggers off without tearing them was really the hardest part of this project! Then the lads helped me tape them on to baker's twine (so the shamrocks keep falling off, but whatever, right?) and we tied some ribbons in between. I love that it was fast, easy, and imperfect, but it makes me smile every time I see it.

Yeah, there's pink ribbon. Sometimes, as the only lass in a house full o' lads, I just HAVE to rebel. And it matched my other ribbon, so there.

I think we may start a new tradition, where I stand under the shamrock "garlic" and my husband comes and kisses me...even though I'm not Irish ;)

Are you doing anything to decorate for and/or celebrate St. Patrick's Day?

**Okay, stop the accent now...I can't keep this up!**

Here's a sneak peak into my current project!  My fabulous neighbors nailed up some new crown molding for us!!!  Now it's our job to finish the cracks and holes, and paint 'er good!  I'm so excited!  Stay tuned for the whole story.
