~A Beautiful Award and the "Sideboy"~

Earlier this week I received this lovely award from Sharon at Rose of Sharon. I am honored and thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. Not only does Sharon have a beautiful blog but she is a special lady with a beautiful soul. I would like to pass this award on to........ Becca at Of Bluebirds and Roses

Robin at Bittersweet Punkin

Michelle at Back through Time

Does anyone decorate for Saint Patrick's Day? I don't really but I do think of March as the month of green so I always put lots of green pieces on my sideboy. I love green dishes and most of these are from street fairs. I'm always looking for birds figurines and the little green birdie is a favorite of mine.
When I saw this little table runner at the peddlers fair last month I fell in love with, I thought it would the perfect touch for my dinning room table. I like it with the the ivy and carnations centerpiece and green candles.
I can't believe it but Sunday is the WX Peddlers Faire. We are expecting a sunny day so it will be a great day to poke around.......I'll be looking for little Easter things. What are your weekend plans??? Whatever you do have a great weekend . Hugs, Linda

I've never decorated for Saint Patricks day but I did get some clover earrings as I'm planing on going down to Dublin for the Parade!

Oh Linda..I just got home from running errands and How SWEET are you?? Thank you so much! What a doll you are....

I do not decorate for St. pat's...never have....

Back Through Time said...

Hi Linda, THANK YOU!! I feel very honored that you passed this my way. If I could, I would give you a hug. You brought a happy spot to my very hectic day!!
I decorate the display window of my store for St Patricks day when Easter isn't in March. I would love to be able to shop with you this weekend! Not sure what I am doing yet, I have Saturday off for a change!!
Have a great weekend and thank you again:-)

Rosemary said...

Congrats on your award!!
I love decorating for St.Patricks and Spring at the same time. Lots of green etc. I have been using a lot of eggs, nests and green.

Hi Linda...
I don't decorate for St. Patty''s all about Easter & Spring for me!
However I do like green...
Have a great weekend!

Lynne said...

I don't decorate for St. Patrick's day either - or for Spring or Easter for that matter. I'm just not into a lot of decoration except at Christmas.

I just heard that we might get some snow tomorrow. Hello??? Last I heard, Atlanta was still in the Deep South - what gives?

Sharon said...

Your buffet looks so pretty with all your green depression glass. I have one St. Patty framed picture (reproduction vintage) and a small candle holder that I usually put out, but I don't think I will put it out this year since it is so close to Easter.

Have a great weekend!

Andi said...

I love your greeen for St. Patricks Day Linda. I have a few "green things" set out but with Easter so early and right after St. Patty's Day I'll have to take them down before the day arrives to get ready for Easter. This probably sounds terribly run on...but you know what I mean.

Love your 6 word memoir! Congratulations on your award.

Hugs, Andi

Natasha Burns said...

Hi Linda,
Hmmm can't say I have ever even thought to decorate for St Pat's day! Here in Australia we tend to not decorate for holidays or seasons, mostly just for Christmas and that's about all really!
I love your green glass, I collect green depression glass too, it's just gorgeous!

violetlady said...

I don't usually decorate much for St. Patrick's Day, but I LOVE your idea about decorating with green for the month of March. It is so appropriate since green is the color of new growth and Spring comes in March. I am going to go look for some green things right now! Thanks for the idea.

Esther Sunday said...

Oh, Linda, congrats on your award - you are so deserving! And, lovely ladies that you passed them on to! I liked your camping shots and glad you had a good time. Camping is what Artie and I love to do! Love, Esther

Nancy said...

I don't decorate for St. Patrick's Day but I love your green on the sideboard. That table runner is really pretty. A good find. It is still snowing here and will be till 4am they are saying. I am now stitching and knitting. No more shoveling for tonight.

Vintage Cate said...

Hi Linda--I love your green Depression glass on your sideboard. I don't decorate for St. Patty's but I do like to bring out the green and yellow things about this time. Also, it's my birthday month, so I tend to think of THAT as the "big holiday" of the month. ;-) I have almost finished your basket. Will be mailing it on Monday.

kbbryant said...

Your "sideboy" looks great.I will always think of you when I hear that word.

Will you eat at the Pancake Circus after the WX tomorrow?

Thanks for your kind words on my blog.

Brenda said...

I went on to Easter since it was so early this year,but your looks great! Hope you find many great things to show us.

Karen H. said...

Good Morning Linda,
"CONGRATULATION'S" on a very well deserved Award and to the ones you passed it onto. I have never decorated for St. Patrick's Day myself. I don't even have any St. Patrick's Day Decorations. I love your Green dishes. They must be some kind of Green Depression dishes. Your little green bird is just adorable. The table runner goes very good with your center piece you have. Green is my favorite color. I hope you have a great day at the Market today and I can't wait to see what you will bring home and share with us. I posted some pictures of our girls on my post today of them out in the Snow yesterday. I took the first picture of the girls but my DH hogged the camera most of the day. LOL. We didn't get to move but we will be moving this coming weekend if the weather is nice. LOL. They way they are talking now, it should be, but you know it can always change. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

nannykim said...

I was wondering if that was depression glass--it is pretty. Love the bird. And I have never decorated for Saint P. day!

Jackie said...

I don't decorate for St. Patrick's Day, but I do wear a lot of green.

Hope that you had fun at the fair.

God bless.

I decorated for Spring/Easter, over the weekend. I don't usually decorate for St Pat's. Last year I had a beautiful Shamrock plant.

I love your green dishes!

What a wonderful award! Congrats! Please let Andi from Andi's Everyday Adventures know I miss being able to read her blog. I read her comment on your blog and was glad to know she was still in blog land.
Take care
