Just dropping in to wish you all a Happy St. Patrick’s day.

Frankly, I am pretty ticked that the leprechauns didn’t sneak in last night and finish my mountain of laundry.

Sure and Begorrah, it's leprechaun laundry day  fabric by vo on Spoonflower - custom fabric


Also, some exciting news.

A few months ago I got an email from Better Homes and Gardens asking permission to feature my Christmas Mantel on their website, BHG.com.

Christmas on St. Patrick’s Day


As you can imagine, that was an easy YES PLEASE!

Unexpectedly, they have already put them up on the site. I wasn’t expecting to see them till the fall.

You can view the feature HERE.

There are a whole bunch of really talented bloggers out there who’s mantels are also featured. Some of whom I was already very familiar with like,

Beth at The stories of A2Z

Shauna at Perfectly Imperfect

Wendy at the Shabby Nest

Susan at Between Naps on the Porch

And of course, the host of the party that lead BHG to us all, the talented and lovely Layla at The Lettered Cottage.

There are also several other bloggers who I was not already familiar with who did some beautiful work and it is worth checking them out as well.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
