Color Palette – Bells of Ireland

Mar 17

If you’ve read my blog awhile you know my love of the Irish and all things from and associated with Ireland.  Even though I’m not Irish by lineage, I am in my heart, so St. Patrick’s Day is a big deal in the Pitner household.  I bought this bouquet of “Bells of Ireland” the other day and just love, love, love the way they look.  I don’t remember seeing them blooming wild in Ireland, but I choose to believe that they do. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!


May your blessing outnumber
The shamrocks that grow
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go 

Music is such a part of the Irish – here’s a sampling of what you’d see walking in the streets of Dublin:

Lastly, I’ll leave you with a little Irish Wisdom, you never know when it will come in handy:

~ A man who holds good cards would never say if they were dealt wrong.

~ A little of anything isn’t worth a pin; but a wee bit of sense is worth a lot.

~ A nod is as good as a wink to a blind donkey.

~ Castles were built a stone at a time.

~ Don’t rest your eyes beyond what is your own.

~ If you don’t know the way, walk slowly.

~ Making the beginning is one third of the work.

and my personal favorite:

~ Never buy bread from a butcher.
