IncyWincyDesign Challenge, Free Vintage Image and St. Patty's Day

Hi All!
Are you having a great week? The weather here sure has changed. It's been in the 40's and 50's and it's heading for the 60's - a brief respite and a hint of spring! You sure can't beat that! Only problem now is all the water from the snow. The grounds still frozen, so all that water is puddling everywhere making quite the mess!

Do you participate in the Challenge Sites? Well if so, be sure and check out the Incy Wincy Designs site. PLV is the sponsor for the 2/21 challenge, so be sure and enter for a chance to win some great PeggyLovesVintage cut outs! Incy Wincy supports a great little charity shop - Aspire to Thrive - whose main goal is to support families with disabilities. The charity has a great little digi shop with some really cute designs. Be sure and check them out!

Do you celebrate St. Patty's Day? We have some Irish in us, along with a lot of other nationalities and we love to celebrate St. Patty's Day - corned beef and cabbage - yum! When my youngest was born, we thought he looked more Lithuanian then anything else and we wanted him to be able to celebrate the Irish in him - so we named him Trevor Patrick - can't get more Irish then that now can you? Our town has a huge St. Patty's Day parade and we always attend. Here's a pic from last year's parade. Of course, we're showing off our green noses and shamrocks!

We top the day off with supporting one of our most popular Irish restaurants where of course we're forced to have a wee bit of green beer. lol But it's always a good time and we thoroughly enjoy the holiday.

In my collection, St. Patty's Day cards are almost as rare as Halloween cards, but I do have a few. One of my favorites is this little Irish girl. Isn't she just the cutest? Make sure you click on her before you save her.

Do you celebrate St. Patty's Day? I'd love to hear what others do to celebrate the holiday.

Well, that's it for this week.

I hope you have a great week just plumb full of smiles!

  6. LOL!! Love the green noses, sis! Too cute! We used to celebrate St Paddy's day in big time fashion about 10 years ago. But we've mellowed out a lot since then. LOL! there are a couple Irish pubs around town that you're lucky if you're able to get inside, and they turn the arch green downtown. Glad to hear you're having nice weather. We're getting snow dumped on us out here! :) Love the little girl!!! Hugs!
