My Material Life

Good Green Things

St. Patrick’s Day is almost here. I’ll be celebrating with Irish Shirley Temples made with green maraschino cherries from Oregon Cherry Growers; white carnations that I’ve been trying to turn green with food coloring (more than is actually shown in the photo above – not as easy as people make it seem, but the green water looks pretty anyway); giant chocolate coins from the Netherlands via Cost Plus World Market (safe for those with nut allergies!) and a lovely green brooch. Have I told you about my new vintage pin eBay habit?

May the road rise up to meet you and all those other good Irish blessings.
