I’ve spent my entire life thinking I had some Irish ancestry, even on days other than St. Patrick’s. As it turns out, I’m more likely Scottish. I even have a family castle and a once-every-seven-year reunion in the homeland. I’m also a distant relative of Sean Connery. As exciting as all that is, it’s a little disappointing too. I liked being able to claim a little legitimacy in my Kiss Me, I’m Irish pin. But aren’t we all just a little bit Irish this time of year?
First of all, just for fun, here’s the castle:
I don’t think they’re going to let me move in anytime soon, but I might be lucky enough to visit one day.
Corned beef and cabbage is really an American version of Irish food, but dishes like this Authentic Irish Colcannon from Boulder Locavore are much more traditional.
I love the simplicity of this St. Patrick’s Day Clover Canvas Art from Lovely Clusters. I actually think this would work outside of the holiday as well.
How fun are these Leprechaun Hat S’mores from Hostess with the Mostess?
Sometimes basic and inexpensive projects wind up being the most impressive, like these Thrifty Hurricanes from Two Twenty One.
This Leprechaun Crunch from Yesterday on Tuesday looks fun and tasty, but what I want to know is, who has to eat all of the Lucky Charms with no marshmallows?!?
Again, so simple, but this Leafy Spring Wreath from Dollar Store Crafts would be perfect for a subtle St. Patrick’s Day decoration.
I know some kids who would enjoy this St. Patrick’s Day Coin Dig from The Pleasantest Thing. And I know one who hates getting messy and really, really wouldn’t.
These Shamrock Cupcakes from Easy Cake Decorating are just brilliant.
I think the hardest part of this felt St. Patrick’s Day Garland from A Subtle Revelry would be cutting out all those shamrocks.
I think the photo says it all when it comes to this Pistachio Pound Cake from The Candid Appetite.
Go find someone to pinch (on Monday!)
