St. Patrick’s Day Mosaic


Even though my husband’s family and my own came from Ireland many years ago to Canada we like to wear our green on St. Patrick’s Day each year.  Ireland is a wonderful place to visit if you ever have the chance to go. 

Mosaic for St Pats day















I have used a Florabella texture as a background that was offered on her Facebook page this week.   Have a great week.   I am going to be at Canada Blooms this week soaking up the smell of spring flowers and dirt.   I am giddy with anticipation after this long long winter.   If you are at Canada Blooms this week on Wednesday I will be in Room 102 at the Master Gardener stage where I will be introducing the speakers until lunch and on Thursday I will be one of the tour guides for the early morning tours.   Stop by and say hello.   Valerie

On Monday Mary is our host for Mosaic Monday.  Come join us.


Happy St. Paddy's Day Val. Great mosaic. I will be also be at Canada Blooms this week and will stop by and say Hi. hugs, Jen

Canada Blooms, that sounds like fun! Your mosaic is terrific, love those shots!
Hi Val
I'll look for you Wed. and email about Saturday for driving down.
I also am excited about attending Blooms, good motivation for spring gardening. Hopefully I can get some shrub pruning done this week too while it's mild.
I've seen so many wonderful photos of Canada Blooms. I wish I lived closer!

Although I'm just as much Italian as I am Irish...this is the time I pretend to be all Irish!
I've done an Irish mosaic also!!

My mosaic this week was pictures of my family all getting our heads shaved at the St. Baldrick’s Festival to help find a cure for childhood cancers. After seeing yours, I could have dome one with my 4 pinning wheels and all of my many cards and photos from Ireland. Maybe next year. Your is beautiful and so perfectly assembled. a lovely post and a fine collage.
What a beautiful St.Patrick's Day tribute! He is my patron/name saint!

I'm "green" with envy. Being around flowers and dirt all week and a Master Gardener too. We have a MG program here once a year that I want to take but I can't talk myself into using a week's vacation to do it! Yet. You've got a great blog.

What a pretty mosaic!
If I could, I'd be at Canada Blooms - in fact, back in early January had intended to be in Toronto for one of my sister's plays and then at Canada Blooms - but life interfered. I'll enjoy it vicariously through the internet.

Canada Blooms would be a lovely place to visit just now. I'm loving all the fresh green in this mosaic - spring is almost here!

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
