♣ Happy St. Patrick's Day ♣

When you're in a 'pinch' (pun not intended) on a school morning to find a bit o' green for the kiddos, look to your stash of scrap bits 'n' bobs!
We had leftover wired tinsel, vintage white buttons in a jar, and scraps of ribbon.  All we had to add was the hot glue and a safety pin to the back!  ☺ Don't they make cute four-leaf clovers?
We made extras for the kids to give their teachers one.  One was a shamrock with stem.  So fun!  Unfortunately, I didn't snap any pics before they were whisked off.  I'm thinking we'll whip up a whole batch of 'em next year!  Super-fun to give away or to doll up a little package.

I wanted to take this simple white lampshade from ordinary to adorable!  I finally used that bit of vintage pom-pom trim, lace, and a super-cute felted wool brooch I had.  What do you think of the shade now?

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! I love that you went all the way back to January. The Ice Cream sign sold and I am always looking for more signs, so if I find a similar one, I'll let you know. I love what you did with the blue jars at Christmas.
