Spring~ March~ St. Patrick's Day

What a beautiful day we are here in my neck of the woods.  It is a gorgeous March Sunday.  I know it isn't going to last long.  After all I live in northern Utah and the weather can change hour by hour.  But while the sun is shining I am going to enjoy, enjoy.  I know that SPRING will soon be here.

I thought I would show you a little of my March decorating.  Oh, boy have I slowed down.  I don't decorate like I use to for holidays and special months.  After all this is the month of St. Patrick's Day, and it just so happens my daughter was born on St. Patrick's Day.  

This is my little girl.

  Now

Then
I have three sons and one daughter.  She is number two.  She has an older brother, and two younger brothers.  And yes she is spoiled!  But then so are her three brothers.  Isn't that what children are for to "spoil"  love and cherish.  Sometimes "spoiled" gets confused with "cherished."  The older I get the more blessed I am to have my wonderful children, and their spouses and their children.  I love Family!

Well, I have slowly been doing a few things around the house.  I can't wait to do my spring house cleaning.
I don't do it until later in the month.  We still have a lot of bad weather coming.  After all it is called Spring cleaning.  Oh, dear, I won't show any pictures of my sewing/craft room.  It looks like a mad woman nightmare.  Well, actually it is a mad woman's nightmare.  MINE!  

Instead I will show you some March decorating.  
Of course my little March Precious Moment
sits out for the month.  You know I collect them.
Well, I have slowed down collecting them.  I have quite a 
collection of them though.

I love to decorate this little antique buffet.  It sits on a small wall
in my living room.  It is the first thing you see when you come in my house.
It is just a fun area to change and re-change with season, months or when 
I am just in the mood for the change.
You can see the little Shamrock plate and tea pot.  I have the
cups and saucers also, but decided to just display these.

It comes to be this time of year and I want flowers.  Well, I was in
the grocery store the other day determined to find a pretty bouquet
of "live" flowers. . .Nope! They cost too much. . .so....
when you can't have "live" flowers you have to have
"faux" flowers.  (Fake)
Hey don't judge. . .I like my faux!
And there are just times when you have to stay in your budget.

Well, I hope you are having a little break from the winter weather.
Even if you are not.  You can still enjoy the season.
And remember SPRING is just around the corner.

Have a good Day!
