St. Pat’s Fact: The very first St. Patrick's Day parade was not in Ireland. It was in Boston in 1737.In Chicago, on St. Patrick's Day, the rivers are dyed green. Mayor Daley is also of Irish descent.In Seattle, there is a ceremony where a green stripe is painted down the roads.
Good morning! I am back at work today, but with a heavy heart. Our government is still bent on stripping our contract and legislating us back to work with no negotiating…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg…but let’s get onto things that make Moe happy!! Seeing my little monkeys today, St. Patrick’s Day (see the fact above!) and card making (see card above!). This week’s Tuesday Trigger over on the Moxie Fab World blog really caught my eye and I couldn’t get it out of my head!! If the inspiration photo was a card, I think it would look like my interpretation! LOL
I think the inspiration is a little obvious, the colours, the lined paper, the 3 orange apricots in the bowl and the French word :) If you look closely at the paper on the doily, it even has gold lines like the bowl in the picture :) LOVE that!! Hmm, I’ve a hankering for an apricot now!! Have a glorious day and thanks for stopping by!
