Decorating my House for St. Patty’s Day

I normally don’t decorate for St. Patrick’s Day but this year I got inspired.  I didn’t do a whole lot just some little touches here and there.  So I thought I would share…

Here’s my front porch and one thing I have realized is how hard it is to take pictures.  I have a fancy camera that I don’t know how to use.  The sun is never in the right spot among many other issues.  I think I need to take a class!

I put together a banner for our green dinner the other day so I added it to my wreath when we were all done with it.

The green polka dot is tissue paper, my porch is covered so I can get away with putting paper products outside for a little while.  Oh and Kitty wanted to be in the photo shoot, she’s such a good model.

My mantel all dressed up!  I found this “You are my Lucky Charm” print on Pinterest here and it’s free!

 Ok… I admit once I got started decorating I was having too much fun and didn’t want to stop.  I promise this is the last picture …

I’m hosting Bunco at my house this month, so I thought it would be fun to decorate a little for the holiday. Now that the decorating is done I need to clean. I don’t know about you, but when I start decorating I make a huge mess. Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day?

Love,

Book Page Shamrock Banner

My hubby and I were recently hanging out at my sisters helping them with a little basement remodel.  The boys were doing most of the work while the girls gave moral support.  I could only do that for so long before I pulled out the water colors with my nieces and started crafting.

Well, we couldn’t find any paint brushes so we finger painted.  I drew them a couple shamrocks to paint and I had to make one myself.  I ripped out some pages of an old book and made Mandy (my sis) a quick banner.

This was super easy and it just took me a few minutes.  All you need is some pages out a book, a sharpie, watercolors, scissors, and some ribbon (no paint brush required lol).  I just free handed the shamrocks and filled them in with water colors.  I found some green ribbon out of the girls’ craft drawer and strung it together.

She has the perfect shelf in her living room to hang banners on.  She has requested that I make her one that she could leave up all year round.  I’ll let you know what I decide on when I actually get around to it.

P.S. I can’t wait to share pictures of their basement with you when they get all done.
