'Tis the obligatory St. Patrick GREEN post

I'm stumped.
 
When trying to channel my inner Irishman for this post,
all I can think of is "What Would Frank McCourt Do"?
 
I know what Frank would do.
He would take pictures of meaningless Green junk around the house
and quote Oscar Wilde
Sure. 
Why not. 
 
What are you favorite green treasures?
Who is your favorite Irish author?

 
"Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time
that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught."
 
Inherited from my mother-in-love
 
 "There is only one thing worse than being talked about,
and that is not being talked about."

Thrifted Kilim Pillow.  I win!
 
"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go."

Thrifted city scape...I love it!
 
"No great artist ever sees things as they really are. 
If he did, he would cease to be an artist." 
 
Thrifted vintage cross stitch in my collection
 
"Ridicule is the tribute paid to the genius by the mediocrities."

Inherited from my mother-in-love
 
"Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not."

Thrifted plate.  One of my favorite things ever!
 
"Women are made to be loved, not understood."

Thrifted vintage music book.
 
"It is absurd to divide people into good and bad.
People are either charming or tedious."

Thrifted old book
 
"If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again,
there is no use in reading it at all."

Inherited painting in my son's room
 
"I never travel without my diary. One should always have something
sensational to read in the train."
 
I hope you'll stop and say hello. 
Kindest and warmest regards to you.

Kudos to you on all the quotes! My obligatory post wouldn't have that much work put into it. :)
You showed us some beautiful things; I am in love with the yellow roses on that book.
Sweet kitty!

Happy FRIDAY!

Nothing better than a great quote or a limerick. Being 1/2 Irish my self, I offer you:

Whenever I dream,
It seems I dream
Of Erin’s rolling hills
Of all its lovely, shimmery lakes
And little babbling rills.
I hear a colleen’s lilting laugh
Across a meadow fair.
And in my dreams
Its almost seems
To me that I am there
O, Ireland! O, Ireland!
We’re Never far apart
For you and all your beauty
Fill my mind and touch my heart.

Have a wonderful St Pats Day!
Hugs
Tammy

What a beautiful St Patrick's Day collection. When I was a kid I used to play from exactly the same music book you featured. I love the thrifted art pieces. Next year's St Patrick's I'll remember my favorite Irish author. Nice idea that one, thank you and thanks for dropping by my nook. Nice to meet you, AllyJo.
