Holiday Cupboard for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day may not be a big holiday, but it's still a fun one to decorate for. It's a chance to bring out the green and start incorporating it into the Spring season. Temps are still on the chilly side, but it's easy to see the warm weather and that buds and blooms are on the way.

I decorated my Holiday Cupboard for early Spring a few weeks ago, so it was an easy transition to St. Patty's to bring out some vintage green bottles and a few antique postcards celebrating all things Irish.

I brought out my few pieces of green transferware plates and sugar bowls with a piece or two of vintage Ivy china. I have a few green depression glass kitchen jars and salt and peppers that I've grabbed over the years. My paternal grandmother started it with her "sugar" jar, that somehow I managed to end up with. I'm sure it was part the kitchen set that I remember on her stove during the 50's and 60's.

The Mini Spring Baskets that I put together a few weeks ago are still on the bench.

And what is an Irish landscape without a few sheep
being dotted around?

My green "toddler" chair is holding a twiggy basket filled with faux paperwhites.

Toward the end of this month I'll change out the quilts and pillows for a more pastel Spring look. I'm sure some bunnies, nests, and eggs will be joining the lighter colors.

Thanks so much for coming by,
hope you're having a great week!

    1. Hello, thanks so much for the comment! As far as Pinterest Pins go I'm set up for pinning, and it shows up on my blog when you hover over the image in the upper left corner. Do you have an account with Pinterest? I'm not sure why it won't allow you to Pin images otherwise.

    Yours are lovely.

  8. Enjoyed seeing how you styled your cupboard; loved your dishes with the glass and greenery and postcards; my eyes just kept traveling!
