Happy St Patrick's Day!

Top O'The Morning To Ye All :-)

Hope you've all had/are having a lovely St Patrick's Day weekend if you celebrate it! What with my husband being Irish (well a Plastic Paddy) we usually manage to celebrate pretty well, but this year there was a distinct lack of planning for a night out and also our babysitter wasn't available, so we decided that we'd stay in last night (Saturday) and maybe go out for a pint of the black stuff at lunch time today with the kids - they like the pub as they know it means crisps to keep them quiet for a bit!

We also both suffered disappointment in the Rugby yesterday - although Ireland didn't win the Wooden Spoon they lost their match to Italy, which somewhat upset my hubby and then England not only lost very badly to Wales but it also meant we didn't get the Grand Slam :-( I spent 80 minutes howling at the TV and ended the evening a rather unhappy bunny!

BUT today is another day, so with all that behind us, we're going to enjoy looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow

I found this CUTE image whilst searching for a pot of gold - click here for the shop link


I haven't got much that I can share with you about what I've been working on this week as the main commission I've had is something for one of my lovely customers for another one of my lovely customers! So until it's handed over and ooooh'd and aaahhh'd over I can't show you!

I'll be linking this up to Handmade Monday as usual and will leave you with one final image

  1. Hello Simmi, It's jilly here from teamcb. Love your blog. I have had a personal blog for years and am just in the process of doing an new one fro Fabrilushus. I am so new at all the Etsy stuff that I am finding it hard.

    Sorry to hear that you didn't get to go out yesterday to celebrate St Paddy. Bad news about England and Ireland too. Not that I am a supporter.

    Hope you have a lovely Sunday and enjoy your pub visit. Hope your weather is better than our is here in The Lincolnshire Fens.

    1. Hey Jilly, thanks for the comment. It is really hard to begin with - I remember wondering if I was doing the right thing at all and whether I'd ever get noticed... but the perseverance does pay off and TeamCB is a really really good way of getting there :-)Hope you have a great week and look forward to reading your new blog! Simmi x

  4. Happy St Patrick's Day! My poor husband was a bit shell shocked over the England rugby result. He works for a Welsh company and is the only non Welshman in the office - I think he might be in for a bit of stick tomorrow!

    1. Ohhhh ouchie! That's not going to be fun tomorrow - I do feel for him! I'm quite glad to have managed to avoid all Welsh friends for at least the first 24 hours, post match! Simmi x

  5. Happy St Patricks Day! I have nothing to share this week either due to birthday celebrations (how can it take an 8 year old so long to celebrate?) so am spending the evening catching up on everyone else's blogs. Have a good week x
