Felt St. Paddy's Day Pin

My Cousin from Ireland sent me pictures along with a video about St. Paddy's Day. She lives in the town my great-grandfather was born in before emigrating to New York during his adult life. St. Patrick's Day is a National Holiday in Ireland. It is a day the whole town goes to church, has a parade and of course has a pint or two. I am grateful she shared traditions held in our family half way across the world.  Featured on the lapel of jacket and coats is a boutonniere of shamrock.

Wearing of the Green for St. Patrick's Day will be no problem with this quick pin.

As you see above this jacket is already for St. Paddy's Day with the wearing of the green.

Felt St. Paddy's Day Pin attached to a wreath makes a sweet piece of decor.

A gift from  my husband years ago this panda sits in our oldest son's rocking chair. He is holding a wreath decorated for the Irish holiday. The pin looks great on this darling wreath in his lap. Do you remember my Thrifty to Nifty post using this wreath?

This felt St. Paddy's Day pin means there is no way St. Patrick's Day should go by without a speck of green. May the Luck of the Irish be with you. :-)
