Here is my St Patrick's Day Vignette
I used my cute little St Patrick Day bears under the cloche with an Irish Coffee mug.  All these items were thrifted of course!  
I don't have any St Patrick's Day plates but I thought this Blue Ridge Southern Potteries Plate in the Stanhome Ivy pattern works just fine
A white candle in this wonderful thrifted Fenton Glass dish 
A pottery Shamrock rests on my glass door knob

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I'm joining these fun parties


I hope you will visit these ladies and their wonderful parties.

Linda this is very cute! I don't have any St.Patricks dishes either other then that one green celtic plate. I just am amazed to see so many of them out here in blogland. I love your little ceramic shamrock! I also really like the pretty fenton glass. It's very nice! Your cloche is just adorable too, now I am wishing I was doing one of those also. Such fun!

Your vignette is perfect for St. Patrick's Day! I love Blue Ridge pottery, so that plate makes me smile!!!

Patti said...

Linda, your vignette is gorgeous!! ALL of it...but I especially love the little dish the candle is sitting in.

Wow, the things a gal can find at the thrift store!!

Have a great day,

Love your vignette, Linda...that beautiful Fenton candy dish makes a great candle holder.

Yes, your Blue Ridge plate looks perfect for St Patricks' day!! I like your little pottery shamrock! Where did you find that?

Queenie said...

Love your St. Patrick's Day Vignettes...the bears under the cloche are darling and I love your Fenton candle holder...everything looks so pretty Linda :)
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!
Big hugs,
p.s. I hope I can link up with your Junkin' Friday party from today's post this coming Friday, as I have made a St. Patrick's Day Vignette with some of my vintage finds...post cards ect...mixed in along with views from Ireland. If you get the chance to, can let me know if it will be okay? I wasn't sure if I could do that seeing how this is my blog post for today and it would be from earlier in the week?

Susan said...

Happy St. Patty's Day, Linda! Love your vignette. I wore green today, but didn't get anything up in the house... though I do have some moss that is a bright lovely Irish green, what's more Irish then moss? LOL!!! Oh yeah, four leaf clovers. ;-)

I hope you are well and I'll be reading up on your blog over the next couple of days to catch up.


Sue said...

So very festive for this holiday, Linda! I love the Fenton dish as your candle holder and think your shamrock leaning on the doorknob looks sweet. Happy St. Pat's Day~ Sue

I realize that people actually use their Pyrex and their mother's wedding china & crystal and their Fenton Emerald Crest bonbon dishes as candleholders but I just can't do it. Which is probably why I have so much clutter in my house/garage/shed. Lovely St. Pat's tableau (even if you ARE burning a real candle in that gorgeous piece of Fenton . . .).

Lovely St. Patrick's vignette. I love that holiday.


laxsupermom said...

Such pretty vignettes! Love the Fenton dish! We're so close by, but I always seem to miss when they're having a special signing event. Darn kids' sports schedules. ;) I love the way you're always rearranging your home. Thanks for sharing.

The Irish coffee mug is just the perfect size for a great big mug of coffee! You are celebrating in grand style with all of your wonderful thrifty finds.


Nice vignette!

You put me to shame.....I only have one St. Patty's Day decoration out. The rest are in the box that I hauled up from the basement a couple of weeks ago! I had a sale this last weekend and just didn't get to unloading the box. HOWEVER, thanks to your inspiration on this post and your previous one, I vow to sprinkle some green around this house today!

I loved your vignette and your tablescape!

Enjoy the day!!

I love your cloche! I have a small one with a bird on top from the old Princess House days! I hope you had a fun St. Paddy's Day! We had corn beef and cabbage. It was yummy.
