Happy St. Patrick's Day to all my friends and relatives.

Sunday, March 4, 2018


The above pictures are all of my outside decorations.

That is all the inside decorations I have for St. Patrick's Day.  I do not have a lot like I do at Christmas, Easter and the 4th of July.  I am not Irish but I will wear green on St. Patrick's Day, I do not want to get pinched.

February...Bending from heaven, in azure mirth, it kissed the forehead of the earth and smiled upon the silent sea, and bade the frozen streams be free, and waked to music all their fountains, and breathed upon the frozen mountains.
             ~Percy Byssle Shelly~

February is merely as long as is needed to pass the time until March.
       ~J.R. Stockton~

On the wind in February snowflakes float still, half inclined to turn to rain, nipping, dripping, chill.
     ~Christina Georgina Rossetti~

Cold and snowy February does seem slow and trying, very.  Still, a month made gay by Cupid never could be wholly stupid.
      ~Louise Bennett Weaver and Helen Cowles LeCron~

My favorite snowman.

Love this one also.   The little wood snowman I painted years ago.

Cute snowmen my children gave me and the bucket was painted and given to me by my daughter-in-law.

This snowman is greeting people as they enter my living room.

I believe these sweet little snowmen were given to me by my daughter, Deann.

The snowman on the left is made of glass the one on the right is ceramic.

A bucket full of snow people on my kitchen table. 

Cloth snowmen on my ledge above my sink, and snowflakes in my windows.

More snowflakes that are in my front windows.

White flowers in vase 2 stuffed snowmen and one metal snowman.

The snowman on the left my daughter, Kara, gave me the other two  I bought.

Cute stuffed snowmen on my coffee table.

I think my daughter, Deann, gave me this cute snowman.

This snowman is holding a towel.

Another ceramic snowman on the left that my daughter, Kara, gave me  the other two I bought.

Glass snowman candy dish and glass snowman candle holder.

Another gift from daughter, Deann,  this snowman can be tall or short.

This snowman people is one my daughter, Deann gave me for Christmas along  with others for different holidays. 

Collection of wood and stuffed snowmen.

My newest wood snowman I brought at Big Lots this year for my front porch.

This little snowman is wood and I painted it quite a few years ago.

I also painted this sled.

I made this snowflake wreath.

Metal snowmen in my front yard.

Little garden flag.

Another garden flag.

My front door wreath.

What my front windows look like from the outside.  

I hope I have not bored you with all my January decorations.   Have a wonderful  January.  Stay warm and safe.   Madeline
