Happy St. Patrick's Day

While searching for the pieces of flooring that we took out of the old closet in our bedroom, I came across this, tucked down the side of the little freezer in the small bedroom.  Haven't found the flooring yet, which we have tucked away somewhere, but I thought this Irish blessing was worth sharing on St. Patricks day.  I embroidered this sometime in my youth, between the wild parties I used to attend (yeah right!)

Didn't find any four leaved clovers either, although I wonder why they didn't include one or two in that embroidery pattern.

What I did find was two ladybugs on the bedroom window.   They were nice and still until I asked them to pose.  The first one was totally uncooperative and flew off before I had a chance for a shot.  She must have heard that her house was on fire.  The second one flew off also, but not before I got this one and only photo.

Please excuse the dried out, paint flecked knuckles.  And yes, the sun was shining!

And on a more serious note
and help support the animals in Japan that are also suffering.
