Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend my friends!
While browsing images earlier this month on The Graphics Fairy, I found this photo of a beautiful, antique greeting card from the early 1900's that I just had to share. The card reads:
|via The Graphics Fairy|
"Let Erin's Harp awake this day,
And sound the glad St. Patrick's Lay."
The illustration is lovely, and the woman embroidering her golden harp is such a classic Victorian image.
If I were back in New England with family right now I know my mother, not one stitch Irish, would be getting ready to cook corned beef and cabbage for the family. Perhaps I should run out to the store and grab some corned beef and the like... now that my mouth is watering thinking about that meal. Are there any traditions you try to adhere to on this day of luck and all things green, whether you're Irish or not?
I'd love to celebrate St. Patty's Day with each of you by offering a discount for all Gypsy Thread purchases via Etsy.
This coupon code will be valid throughout the whole weekend, which should fit in perfectly with all the leprechaun catching, gold hunting, and fine cooking you have planned.
May you each have a day blessed with luck and good fortune,
