When I think of St. Patrick’s Day, a few things pop into my head … shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows, pots of gold, Lucky Charms and luck in general.

Do you feel lucky today?

I was feeling pretty lucky when I made this bracelet and named it “Lucky”.  I know,  it may seem weird to name a bracelet … I guess I’m weird (my GPS is Lucy).

This is Lucky

I am going to give “Lucky” to one lucky winner!

  2. This year will be a little different. We are an Irish family that has huge parties, sing Clancy Brother songs, dance jigs and reels…etc. But this year I will be spending it with my sister Mary who fell while shopping at Walmart and fractured her skull in 2 places. After one week she is out of ICU in a privater room. She has a long road ahead of her. Because of this we canceled our family party but are thankful Mary is out of the woods and is on the road to recovery!
    Happy St. Patricks Day!

  3. Congrats on your win! I just love bakerella. Glad I found ya – LOVE the little M & M chics. Clever idea! No plans for me for St. Patty’s day currently, though I am brainstorming some kind of green dessert. I jumped into making Irish pub stew and Irish soda bread in late Feb – I got anxious for it! lol Maybe I’m make some corn beef and cabbage ; )


  4. Love those leprechaun hats…I’m experiencing baking withdrawal as my kitchen has been completely gutted in preparation for a new one! I’m looking forward to your creative ideas for May!! Thank goodness we’ve been invited to my sis-in-laws to celebrate St Pats the Easter way with a honey baked ham! Wish I could make and bring those leprechaun hats!! Thanks again for sharing!


  5. I’m making the mint and chip sandwich cookies tonight:) St.Patty’s Day is my friends son’s birthday so we will all get together to celebrate. The bracelet is really pretty~you are one talented lady. Happy St.Patrick’s Day!

    If Anyone wants to join in the ‘so-called fun’, you’re more then welcome to join me
    Have a great weekend and enjoy the day


  8. My “new” granddaughter’s birthday is St. Patty’s Day and I will be attending her party. She will be 4 years old. My son and his wife adopted this little girl in November. She is actually my daughter-in-law’s niece. They have 3 biological sons and this little girl is loved just the same as the boys. Her name is Gracie. She is a beautiful little girl. And she is a girlie girl. Love it. She has a disability – she is going deaf and has hearing aids in both ears. Of course she picked pink sparkly ones. She is going to speech therapy and is learning to speak better since she has her hearing aids. My daughter-in-law and I are having fun planning her birthday party. She is a princess phanatic. It is going to be a combination princess party with a little St. Patty’s Day thrown in. I made her a birthday banner featuring her name and age on 2 princess glittered castles, Cinderella’s Coach (white glitter) and gold glittered crowns as the banner. It turned out beautiful. I also am making princess wands out of large lollipop sticks adorned with jumbo heart marshmallows and ribbons. We are working on all kinds of birthday treats and favors. Sorry for the long comment. I am excited for my new granddaughter and her first birthday party in the family.


  9. Will be having Green Beer, and Shamrock Shakes in honor of my Momma that passed… I’m thinking either your mint chip cookies or leprechaun hats would work well with both! Thanks for sharing
