Friday Favorites–St. Patrick’s Day

When I was a kid, I was Irish, among other things.  Later, someone in the family determined that with our “Mc” last name, we were Scottish.  Eventually, we were Irish again.  I honestly can’t tell you where it last landed, but come March 17th I go with Irish every time. I’m not usually one to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, but I love this Stenciled St. Patrick’s Day Pillow from Burton Avenue.  I’d have a hard time putting it away on the 18th.

This yarn-wrapped clover from GoodBye City Hello Suburbs also caught my eye.


So, maybe I need to consider decorating, because I also think these Paper Shamrocks from Hoosier Homemade are cute.  I really like the two layers of different paper.


It’s all about the wearing of the green, right?  Try these St. Patrick’s Day Shirts from Keeping It Simple on for size.

It’s funny how we spend all summer fighting the clover that tries to creep into our lawn, but it’s the star on St. Patrick’s Day.  Show a little clover love with these DIY Four Leaf Clover Stamps on Prudent Baby.


If you’re looking for an easy, tasty snack for the kids, try these Rainbow Wrapped Marshmallows from Smart School House.

I haven’t tried anything with matcha myself, but it seems to be everywhere I look lately.  These Matcha White Chocolate Pistachio Cups from Sweetest Kitchen seem like a good place to start.


Check out this Skinny Shamrock Shake from Skinny Mom.  All the St. Patrick’s Day fun with less guilt.


If you’ve never made cream puffs, you ought to give it a try.  They’re far easier than they look.  Flex those cream puff muscles on these St. Patrick’s Day Cream Puffs from Mrs. Fields.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the House McCrafty!
