Rainbows, Shamrocks and Leprechauns! OH MY!

Well, it must be that wee bit of Irish blood flowin' through our veins...
We are in the St.Paddy's spirit over here ~ gearing up with some good ol' craftiness!
There are lovely purple shamrocks living here at the moment 
so we decided to give them colorful new homes, in some brightly painted rainbow pots.

A festive St.Paddy's project for all ~ who doesn't love a rainbow!

( yes that cowgirl getup is just an average "every day" kinda outfit around here ;)

We also decided we couldn't resist creating these playful little leprechaun gnomes (found over at wee folk ~ love their creations)
These were super quick and fun to whip up!

I made two 
 and then realized my mistake...
Double. Trouble!

I could just see them scheming away... whisper... whisper...
working out their plans of mischief.

Hopefully we can keep them out of trouble 
for now...
Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins gold.
Donald heard a mermaid sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I've had to make myself.

In mischief & magic

  1. hi guys, i love your makings. the rainbow pots are tops, gorgeous. x

  2. That kiss should appease them! Love your wee ladies, so cute!

  3. I love all the colour, especially when outside is so monochrome and a bit yucky today. Those leprechauns are the cutest!

  4. Oh, yet another fabulous set of people. I wish my peg blanks would hurry up and get here!

  5. I love love love the leprechauns and there little fire!! So cute!! I recently found your blog and find it very inspiring. Thank you.

  6. So fun!! Great minds think alike, we made little peg doll leprechauns yesterday for our St. Patrick's-themed sensory box but yours are much more elfie and wizard-like -- I love them!! The fire is so cool, I think we'll have to make one of those too since "E" is obsessed with her Malificent Barbie right now and cooking potions in a mini halloween cauldron : )

  7. Top o the mornin to you and your green wee fellows!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!.....and you of course!!! Keep inspiring! xo

    Crafting in a cowboy hat is pretty darn awesome too :-)

    Blessings and light...

  9. Shel Silverstein is fantastic - my big girl's favourite poet.
