St Patricks Day Charms & a little snippet of WIP

I hope everyone is having a good week, did you know that it will soon be St Patrick's Day? (Thursday 17th March), so Happy St Patrick's Day to all who celebrate, I don't celebrate this day myself but I have family over in Ireland so always receive a couple of cards and messages. I decided to make a few special Hanging Bottles....

St Patrick's Day Bottle

I made a bottle filled with the gold coins I collected from the End of the Rainbow!!!

ok, ok,  I'll come clean, I didn't really find the tub of gold at the end of the rainbow, I made all the little coins with gold card.

Green Fairy Dust in a Bottle

4 Little Bottles all in a row

Good Luck Wishes in a Bottle, these make nice little Good Luck Charms that can be hung up around the home.

I've also been working on a new idea for my paintings on wood, here is a little peek at some of my work in progress.......

  1. St Patrick is my patron saint so do celebrate on the 17th, plus like you have family originating from Eire.

    I love your new paintings on wood, so cute the bunny is ideal for Easter

  2. Ooo, I love the painting on wood, so sweet. You have a real talent.

  3. aha, found out how to leave a comment....
    Lovely the magical Irish items and of course the St. David's Day things..

  4. Just love those little paintings on wood. I'm sure if you had found real gold you would have shared it out....right!!

  5. I like the look of your works in progress. Nothing nicer than cats and bunnies.

  6. Love the Irish magic charms and the cats and bunnies are delightful!

  7. The little wishes in bottles are such a cute little idea x
    omg the grey bunny on wood is adorable xx

  8. What a lovely idea your bottles are, such a nice little good luck gift. I'm also loving the little wooden animals, I can't wait to find out what they are for.

  9. What sweet little bottles! Happy St Patricks Day to you (a couple of days late sorry!) I have Irish ancestry as well but my St Pats day celebration simply consisted of crocheting an Irish Rose which I pinned to my green cardigan. I love the little painted animals as well. :)
