I probably wouldn't have bothered this year either except for the "Luck of the Irish" vintage items that I found thrifting. (I will NOT have a St. Patrick's Day tote! I will NOT have a St. Patrick's Day tote! I will NOT...)
My next find was a vintage shamrock cookie cutter for $4.
I had always wanted to try this technique I found on By Wilma's blog. I ripped out the shamrock page in an old dictionary, found a shamrock graphic on the internet, printed it on my inkjet printer and framed it in a 4x6 black frame that I already owned.
I purchased some green and white mints in a bag at the Dollar Store, and filled a old jar.
Then it was just a matter of putting it all together in a little black cubby on my over-the-kitchen-sink shelf.
