I really am part Irish. My grandfather Dailey was Irish, and my Grandfather Wheeler was English, so I apparently had the honor of bringing those two often clashing cultures together, at least in my little family. I have also traveled to Ireland many years ago, and had quite an adventure. In downtown Belfast I was surrounded by two British soldiers as I stepped of the sidewalk to take a picture of armored vehicles patrolling the main street. Of course, I had no idea what was going on since I had never been there before, and they soon realized I was just an ordinary tourist with no ill-will intended. But the best part of my trip to the beautiful Emerald Isle was meeting the wonderful people who were so kind and loving. It was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget the memories of such a beautiful but troubled land. For this week’s Home Matters Linky Party #222 with the theme of St. Patrick’s Day Fun Ideas I decided to gather up a few creative ways to celebrate the beauty of Ireland and my own Irish heritage. #StPatricksDay #StPatricksDayIdeas #HomeMattersParty
Here are a few ideas that I discovered all around the blogosphere that might actually be projects that we could do here at our house. I love the Irish Blessing printable HashTagBlessed Blog and it isn’t so “green” that we couldn’t display it in our newly updated family room all year long. Of course, I couldn’t resist the adorable green and white Mason jars that I found on Pinterest from a cute little Etsy shop, or the sweetly simple green and white wreath from LoveThisPic (the wreath was originally from an Etsy shop, but it has since sold – still great inspiration!). And the gorgeous floral arrangement on the top of a candle lantern on one of my Pinterest boards looks like a project I could tackle. I already have the black lantern and the white candle, so I just might gather up some greenery and ribbon and create my own for this month. Finally, that white chocolate mint cookie bark looks a little bit like the French Mint bars we make at Christmas. And if it is just as good as the French Mint Bars, then I know my family will love it.
Here’s to a celebration of Irish history and heritage . . . I hope you can join us for this week’s #HomeMattersParty!
