Happy St. Patrick's Day !

Hello sweet friends !

When I was growing up in Astoria-Queens, NY it was an Irish and Italian neighborhood mostly and of course the Irish friends celebrated St. Patrick's Day, not only wearing green, but in the Irish pubs, the food etc.

Then some other days the Italians were celebrating St. Gennaro's Day and so I grew up wearing green and wearing buttons of "Kiss me I'm Irish." 
 Some other times we were celebrating St. Gennaro's and another Saint, I forget which name, lol...right in the neighborhood near my house, where they closed the street and there were great things to do and wonderful Italian food as well. Anyway, what I want to explain is that St. Pat's Day is very familiar to me and it brings me so many memories from my school days and even "my first bo" at 14 was Irish and his name was Bobby Riley, lol...

Wishing you dear Irish friends and everyone else too, as it is almost an all American festivity.

This is a complete dinner china, hand decorated back at our own Ceramic Co. inspired in the embroidered cloths of the indigenous Ecuadorian men's shirts and cuffs with 'Shamrocks' therefore is my St. Pat's celebration china.
Here I used another green dinner plate so the shamrock salad plate will be at centerstage.

Here I combined the shamrock dinner plate with another pattern in green soup bowl.

In this image I placed the teacups and saucers as well.

Luck of the Irish !

Another combo using some pieces from my reticulated creamware.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for their great parties.

  6. Dearest Fabby,
    Wow, that is perfect for St. Patrick's and love the gold coins you have on the plate!
    We have a wedding today from the nephew of our extended family and tomorrow is the Church wedding of our very own Foster Daughter Anita & Anton. Since the wedding is in Indonesia and that means strenuous traveling for Pieter with his heart condition, we cannot be there in person, but in spirit yes!

  7. Happy St. Patty's day dear Fabby!! Beautiful tablescape as always. Love the dishes. 🍀🍀

  8. Awe...what a wonderful tablescape Fabby. The gold coins really added a pop. Love it. Stay safe dear lady. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  9. ¡Ay Fabby!, que mesas mas preciosas has preparado y que bonitos recuerdos evocas, las vajillas son espectaculares y bonito el detalle de las monedas. Me encanta conservar las tradiciones y disfrutarlas en familia. No se como estáis por ahí, pero nosotros recluidos en casa sin poder salir a la calle, salvo para emergencias, espero que todo poco a poco se vaya solucionando aunque parece que va a ser un tema largo y doloroso, nunca imagine vivir una situación como esta. Cuidate y un abrazo grande
