I don't personally decorate for this one day holiday, but for those who do wish to can consider a theme outdoor flag that is easy to change and won't put a dent in the wallet. Another way is to replace outdoor lights with a bit o green bulbs. :-)

As it usually falls in lent I never do anything special for this day other than perhaps getting one of the shamrock plants from the grocery store to use as a centerpiece for a week or so. Them move it to the kitchen window. Decorative a around the house are Easter and I don't want to put th away. So st paddys at linderhof is just a pot of shamrocks
Finally, the new wreath I made for the front door and a plaque from Doll. Tr.
It will be a very quick turn-around to switch to Easter after this holiday, but I just enjoy decorating for the holidays and since my maiden name is Irish, I couldn't ignore the chance to decorate for this holiday.
Did I do something wrong? Is there an unwritten rule to # of pictures one should post? I posted photos on Mar. 4 and the thread died, no comments, no other posts, nothing. So I thought I would see if I committed a faux pas? That way I could avoid duplicating my error in the future. Candy
Candy, I don't think you did anything wrong!! I just looked at this post this morning and I am in AWE over you decorations. I am also Irish and have been blessed to have visited Ireland. I have a few Irish decorations but they are pretty much scattered. Love what you have put together. I'm going to show this post to one of my daughters, she dearly loves all things Irish. She has the red hair and blue eyes that are so common there. She was very happy as she looked like everyone else instead of standing out with her red hair.
