Tabletop Tuesday with Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life

I'm joining Marty for the first time at A Stroll Thru Life for her Tabletop Tuesday meme.

I'm in full St. Patrick's Day decorating mode this week so there are lots of GREEN things to look at around The Gazebo House.

This was my one & only Irish Coffee mug until I won a set of beautiful clear glass ones from Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum. I can't wait for them to arrive! Thank you in advance, Michael!

I've got my Belleek teacup & saucer (thank you, Ellie!) on display beside my Mom's white hobnail vase with a few beautiful yellow roses...a promise of Green things to come.

I framed a card that my hubby bought for me YEARS ago. It tells the story of the Clauddaugh symbol & I treasure the sentimental words he wrote inside.
The apothecary jar is filled with shredded GREEN paper & I have a few little shamrocks stuck to the outside. The skeleton keys are from my parents old home.

I have lots more to show but I'm saving some things for Cuisine Kathleen's blog roll on March 16th. Follow the link on my sidebar to see what that's all about.

As always, thanks for visiting me at The Gazebo House & thank you, Marty for having such a fun party to show off our vignettes.


  1. Lovin' the GREEN, your dishes are beauties, the pictures are amazing.

  2. You sure are ready for St Paddy's day!

  3. I love Belleek and your is just beautiful. And how sentimental to frame the card from your husband. It looks great on your Celtic table!


  4. Oh how pretty all your green and St. Patty items are. Your tablescape is so refreshing to look at right now. Very nice post thank you for showing.

  5. Oh I love your "Green". You are so creative to decorate for all the holidays. I guess I am just too lazy. The vignettes are lovely and the use of the green shredded paperin the apothecary jar is such a creative idea and looks wonderful. I love that you framed the card. What a treasure. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  8. I love your St. Pat's table and all your greens. I made a few loves of Irish soda bread last week to get us all in the spirit.
