I will let you in on a little known secret, the Irish people captured a real live leprechaun to be their President ! Look at this photo, do you see what I mean lol? Shh, don't tell anyone I told you or they might kick me out of the country.
For the challenge I drew a string shaped like a leprechaun's hat and tangled it with Sh'rock and Ahh. The Sh'rock tangle pattern is an obvious choice, but I added the celebratory Ahh tangle pattern around the outside as this year Ireland is celebrating 100 years since the 1916 Rebellion (Easter Rising) which was one of the pivotal events leading to Irish Independence.
For added good luck I also drew this tile featuring a shamrock.
Something I discovered when I moved here is that you can buy shamrock and sour cream flavoured crisps, delicious!.
Perfect tangle. I'm planning a trip to Ireland in September so we will have to get together. Happy St. Paddy's Day.ReplyDelete
Wow, it would be great to meet up if you get the chance. September is a great time to visit.Delete
I never saw crisps like those when we were over there but I wish I had. As for your leprechaun, he really does look the part, doesn't he? As well as the tiles, which are, of course, great, I just love the little knitted hats.ReplyDelete
Seeing different foods is such a fun part of different countries. I could hardly pull myself out of a convenience store on a trip to Canada because of all the fun and different junk foods! Perfect Irish tiles and those knitted hats are adorable!ReplyDelete
How fun your pieces are this week. A wonderful celebration. The crochet Leprechaun hat's are a wonderful touch!ReplyDelete
Both tiles are cute. I like the Dragonair outline of your shamrock.ReplyDelete
I love your tiles! They're so festive.ReplyDelete
Happy St. Paddy's day! Love both your tiles and the little crochet hats are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Does shamrock taste like magic spinach? Happy St. Patrick's Day, my friend! Your tiles are magical!ReplyDelete
The shamrock I have eaten was more like watercress.Delete
Your love of the green is clear in these charming tiles! And lucky you having a leprechaun for a president!ReplyDelete
Your president is just so cute, he fits right in with all your artwork this week! Have a brilliant day! CherylReplyDelete
