Wishing you a wonderful St Patricks Day! As I was thinking of all the things we associate with St Pattys day, I began to think about a little thing called LUCK........... Do you believe in Luck? Do you think you have Luck? Can anyone have Luck? Is it found in a Pot O' Gold?










Can it be had for a tug on a Leprachaun's shirtails?










Well, I don't know the answers for sure........... but, I do know this...........
I feel pretty LUCKY that this wonderful guy fell in love with me oh so many years ago...................




















And, that I live near this............















And this................
















And, LUCKY that I now share my life with these handsome characters...............

















And this little DIVA..............














And this little cutie pie too............
















So, Lucky? YES! I sure am! And I am oh so lucky that I can share this all with you! Here's hoping YOU are feeling LUCKY today and EVERY day!

"I Paint~Therefore, I do not Sleep!" ...... Ok, so as promised, here are pics of the flower pots which kept me up till the wee hours of the morning last week...... We were supposed to take them to sell at a show, however the person who had the idea in the first place, decided the line to get in and set up was too long.....so, decided to postpone it a week...... It is supposed to happen this weekend...... we shall see~ But in the meantime I thought you might enjoy seeing them........ I do enjoy my painting so much. I don't think I realized just how important it was to me, until last week just before I started on these, and I couldn't find my brushes..... ohmygosh! I was actually crying! I suppose this is then, my true passion. Or at least one of them.....

Now, tell me, isn't this just one of the cutest, sweetest little bunnies you have ever seen? It is from the Betty Crocker website. I made this one Easter for my kiddos when they were still small enough to be thrilled by it. Though I do remember one of them was very upset that he couldn't eat the ears too! It was much fun to create, a bit too sweet maybe, but oh so worth the time! If you have little ones, or are blessed with Grandbabies, you really ought to think about making them one of these delightful cakes~
Ok, I may be getting ahead of myself here... and ahead of the season too... I am already thinking of Easter when we still have St Patrick's day ahead.... sorry, it may just be due to my love for these little long~eared cuties in general, or it may be the sun peeking through the clouds this morning here hinting that Spring is trying to sneek in..... or it may be the fact that I had a darling little chocolate bunny for breakfast {hey, you can't blame me if the grocery store has them on sale for $1.00 ~ Mom taught me to never pass up a bargain}....... or it could simply be that I was up till 5:30 AM painting flower pots ~more on this later, including pictures!~ Well, whatever the reason, I hope you enjoy my sweet little friend.... and maybe this will inspire you to make a sweet new Easter memory this year!
