St. Pat's is popping up all over the house this week, and this little vignette is but one of the festive spots. I tend to like to corral things in baskets, not only because this seems to be a popular thing to do, but also, just between you and me, it makes it so much easier to dust when I can just shove everything from one side of the table to the other.
The coffee table in the living room is a big one, so commands a large basket. I generally only change it each season, but decided that I wanted to gather up some of my favorite things in honor of the holiday.
It would not be St. Patrick's Day around here without at least one pot of shamrocks, so it was the first thing to go into the basket.
The candlesticks are Irish Crystal and part of a pair given to me by Mr. O-P on one of our first Christmases together.
I love Irish butter, so had to include this cute little cow creamer.
Irish coins, collected prior to the Euro, spill from a birdcage that used to belong to my mother, and is perched atop a vintage World Atlas.
In the evenings when we sit together to watch something on television that is agreeable to us both, I light the candles. There is just nothing like the glow of candles to give off a sense of peace.
