A Little More of "Paddy!"

Just in case you're wondering who St. Patrick really was. And, check out all of the other interesting facts about the history of this holiday.



Shoe Mood:

The only shoes I own with green in them!
(Now if this were a jacket, accessory, or blouse "mood," that would be a different story!)

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, too! My kids are all in green...will have to find some for myself to wear!

Bish Denham said...

Do you have a good of Oscar Wilde quotes or what? Too funny!

Bish Denham said...

Oops...that's do you have a BOOK of OW quotes?

CJ Raymer said...

Kelly - Yeah, we were all in our green today. So much fun!

Bish - Too funny! I do keep a journal of the quotes that strike my fancy. And, needless to say, Oscar Wilde has been one of my most quotable individuals.

I organize my "Favorite Quotes" journal under certain subjects. So, whenever I need something, I just flip it open. It serves as great inspiration to me.
