Old Fashioned Girls for St. Patrick's Week

Oh goodness, where has the time gone? St. Patrick's Day will be here this Friday! I quickly got to thinking about how to decorate for the week and here is what I came up with.



To create this vignette I opened up the bookcase in search for some green and gold books... 



after I pulled out these books and noticed that the top gold one was "An Old Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott, I knew what my vignette theme would be! Old fashioned girls!

So with that idea I quickly brought over my old fashioned Staffordshire girl figure... 


and where she goes, her beau is sure to follow! 
And another Old Fashioned Girl, with her dog, gracing this tin...



and two more Old Fashioned Girls from out of the postcard album...



And more postcards over on the Library table...



Over in the kitchen, I added a wee bit o' green right here...



and on the dining room table I brought out the gold rimmed Limoges plates and a smaller hand painted plate that reminds me of Ireland.



And for a quick centerpiece I brought out the brass candlesticks, gold candles, gold base for the crystal bowl, a green Moser glass piece with enamel and gilt...



and a few beautiful daffodils from the garden.



Thanks so much for your visit and have a blessed week!

  10. Oh, I love your old fashioned girls Gina! I have a niece that was born on St. Patty's Day. Today I gifted here with a cute 'green' old fashioned girl for her birthday. When I saw her amongst the estate sale treasures that I am selling I knew I had to buy her for her. I love vintage postcards. You have some beauties! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
    hugs,
