Did you all celebrate St. Patrick's Day this weekend?
We have had five days of non-stop rain (much needed) in the Bay Area, so it's been feeling a bit like
green Ireland around here.
Take that, Trader Joe's!
I've never really taken much notice of St. Patrick's Day until my kiddos came along.
Though I didn't take any pictures, a leprechaun did make his way into our house through the kitchen window on Friday night. He left a trail of green glitter along the counter, where he got into the cookies, dumped over the oatmeal canister, and then hid two pots of gold ( foil wrapped chocolates) behind the other canisters.
Oddly, what got the most attention was the green colored water in the toilet bowl (green food coloring). My girls still can't get over that the leprechaun had to "go potty" before he left our house.
Saturday evening, I got a knock on the back door. My friend, Monica, was standing there, holding these.
An enormous bucket packed full of sweet peas from her flower shop in San Francisco! Just because she knows I love them.
I've been meaning to do a post on Monica's shop. Got to do that because it is the teensiest, tiniest, cutest little flower shop you've ever seen.
Monica is insanely talented. And she is such a great friend. The kind that if you casually mention you can't get the kids together because everyone in the house is sick, you'll find chicken noodle soup on the back porch twenty minutes later.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd arrange the sweet peas in these canisters that used to sit on my grandmother's counter. I'm loving these green glass vessels for arranging flowers lately. They really intensify the color of the flower.
Sweet peas are so, so gorgeous. Delicate and fluffy and feminine .
They smell wonderful too. Wish you could sniff them through the screen.
Hope you all had a pinch-free weekend.
