Luck O' the Irish - Wednesday Wanderings and the Shops Found Along the Way

St. Patrick's Day is upon us and I always think of clovers. Four leaf clovers for luck. Shamrocks.
Why should you never iron a four-leaf clover?  You don't want to press your luck!

Clovers from my yard!

When I was just a wee lass, I used to sit with my friends in huge clover patches and make clover necklaces from the small white flowers. Most people mowed the clovers down, but there was a house at the end of my block (which was good because I wasn't allowed to cross the street!) that had the biggest clover patches ever! Sometimes I'd find a four-leaf clover and that was, indeed, very special!

This is a four-leafed clover that you can keep year-round for all the luck you need! Vintage Quilt Heart Shamrock by The Career Scraper.

I have a bit o' the Irish in me and a very Irish last name. But I still wear the green on St. Pat's Day, and feel funny if I don't, for I do not relish getting pinched!

 Here's a very clever wearin' o' the green! A handpainted cuff bracelet made from a vinyl record! How totally cool is that! Irish Shamrock Cuff Bracelet by Designs by Devonee.

What is St. Patrick's Day without it's resident leprechaun? After all, somebody's got to guard that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! And maybe have directions to get there : ) 

This little guy is a real Irish cutie! And he's a pattern so you could crochet your own wee leprechaun -- maybe he'll lead you to his pot of gold! Pudgy Leprechaun Crochet Pattern by BVOE's Shop.

For sure, every St. Pat's party has green beer and probably a leprechaun or two changing all the beer to green!

These two mugs are perfect for your beer, green or otherwise! St. Patrick's Day Beer Steins by Etched in Time, LLC.

There's always a St. Pat's Parade winding through downtown USA and everybody in it is Irish! At least Irish for the day! It's a good time to take your Irish pup for a wee walk...  

When you and your sweetie pup lass are in the St. Patrick's Day Parade, she'll be so darlin' in this cute dress!

After the parade, you'd better be giving your pup a few treats. After all, she was so good! 

As this seller says, "Your pup found the pot of gold!" Don't these treats look yummy? Maybe they could be a people treat too?!! Leprechauns Gold Dog Treat Box by Po's Bag of Bones Bakery. 

May your blessings outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and may trouble avoid you wherever you go.

As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
