    Regards from Western Canada,
    Anna

    ReplyDelete
  108. I wear green and that's about it.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oh my gosh, those fabrics are adorable. Wonderful giveaway and your mug rug is too cute. Great job.

    Yes, we celebrate St Patrick's Day but we do it much more quietly than others because we don't hit the bars at all. I really do think I must have one green beer someday though. I have never had one yet but, of course the fact I don't really like beer is part of that reason but I feel left out. LOL Anyway, I make a huge corned beef and cabbage meal and this year two of our 4 boys were here as well as one of their fiancee's and our new Granddaughter who is now 5 weeks old. It was a great day. We had bought our Granddaughter the most adorable Shamrock shaped bib that said 'My 1st St Patrick's day' for her to wear too.

    Thank you for the wonderful prizes.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I am now a new follower by GFC although I'd love the option of email notification to get those emails when you make a new post to the blog.
