Luck 'O The Irish

Since moving to Dogtown, in St Louis, I've truly begun to embrace my Irish heritage. My great great grandfather came to the United States from Ireland after joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and was among the first in the settlement party to settle Parowan, Utah. This cute little valley is absolutely gorgeous, and packed with 2,500 of the friendliest and most patriotic people you'll ever meet! You can still pick up on the Irish accents and colloquialisms that define our little town.

So, I'm counting down the days till St Patty's day (as is everyone else in the neighborhood) and adorning my home in green. Here's the first sneak peek!

Our mom made these for us! She painted the blocks beige, then cut and inked square scrapbook paper. Mod Podged them to blocks, then also mod podged Cricut letters with inked edges for the antiqued look!

I linked up with some of these fun linky parties this week!
