Friday Favorites–St Patrick’s Day

I like green.  It’s not my favorite color, but it’s very high on the list.  My birthstone is emerald.  I live in Oregon, the greenest state there is.  So, why is it every year I find myself searching for something green for St. Patrick’s Day?

It only takes a little bit of green to make yourself pinch-proof and this Green Box Elder Wood Inlay Ring from Etsy seller jewelrybyjohan is the perfect amount.

This Shamrock Quilt Block from Quilting Works could be using in a festive table runner and would be a fun way to use up some green scraps.

Remember Push Pops?  My kids loved those things when they were little.  They probably wouldn’t mind graduating to these Irish Cream Push Pops from Hoosier Homemade.

I had never heard of a Leprechaun trap until my daughter made one in kindergarten.  Apparently, they’re sneaky little guys and must be caught.  Family Fun has some clever ways To Catch a Leprechaun.

I can’t decide if it would be more fun to serve these Potato Petit Fours from Sprinkle Bakes on St. Patrick’s Day or April Fools.
