Luck O' The Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

The kids & I are heading to the Vancouver Aquarium today to enjoy another leisurely day of Spring Break. We don't go to this fantastic Vancouver landmark often enough but when we do we always have a blast:

When we get home we plan on making leprechaun spirits using some bottles leftover from Paulina's Alice in Wonderland birthday party last year & this simple template from design*sponge:

{ Elixir of Luck }

We will be sure to wear green to avoid any pinches from errant leprechauns!!

I'm 0ff to deal with a few permit issues for a project & finish off some dishes before we head out. These lovely shamrocks are what I get to look at while at my sink:

Inexpensive island decorations:
  • shamrock plants bought at local Superstore
  • small galvanized Socker pots from IKEA
  • Glimma tealight holders & inserts from IKEA
  • assorted candlesticks {2 were inherited from Craig's family, 2 were wedding gifts from Restoration Hardware (those specific candlesticks are no longer in production) & 2 are mouth blown glass from (where else!) IKEA)
May the luck of the Irish be with you today!!
