Green For The Irish

Hello and welcome!  I am sharing a little green today for tea time.






Wishing you a happy St. Patrick's day with an old Irish blessing.






I am using a very special teacup.  My precious daughter bought it for me several years ago.  We were at Mackinaw Island for a Win-Some Women retreat, staying at the Grand Hotel.  The teacup is the pattern of the dishes they use at the hotel.  Using the teacup brings back so many happy memories of the weekend with my daughter.









The platter is called Hayfield, a Johnson Bro's Friendly Village pattern.  I thought the scene looks like a farm in Ireland!






Thank you so much for visiting and have a good week!

I will be joining  these parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Teacup Tuesday.

Your teacup is such a gorgeous shade of green and a beautiful momento! I love the Friendly Village platter and it does remind one of an Irish farmscape. The photo of your daughter is beautiful! Thank you for joining me for tea and I hope you're having a lovely week, Nancy.

Hi Nancy, love your fresh green tea cup. It's lovely that you got it from your daughter. My daughters gave me a few cups too and they are just as special to me. :) I missed TT this week but still wanted to pop by and catch up and wish you a wonderful rest of the week. :)
