May The Luck Of The Irish Be With You

Here are 3 beautiful Irish blessings to carry with you throughout the day...

May you have:
A world of wishes at your command.
God and his angels close to hand.
Friends and family their love impart,
and Irish blessings in your heart!

 May God grant you always...
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering angel, so nothing can harm you.

 May St. Patrick guard you wherever you go,
and guide you in whatever you do--
and may his loving protection be a blessing to you always.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

A View of All That Jazz for March

All That Jazz keeps plucking on. After a couple slower months over the winter things are beginning to pick up as people come out of hibernation.

One major change to tell you about, as of a few weeks ago I am officially the sole proprietor of All That Jazz. When we started nearly 2 years ago, there were 5 of us, my Cousin Michelle, my Nana, my Aunt, my Mom and myself.

Michelle and my Nana left last Summer and I my Aunt and Mom decided they didn't want to be involved anymore after the first of the year. I've actually been running 95% of our part of Jazz for the last year and a half anyway so it won't be that big of a change and I'm sure my Mom and Aunt will want to help out occasionally with some of the funner decoration/shopping bits., hopefully! It's more fun when you have someone to play with.

I took a few smaller pieces in last weekend but am feeling that old urge to really
 move things around again. Possibly in a big way, really do some Spring cleaning!
I am also planning a giveaway in honor of the 2nd Anniversary of All That Jazz, so stay tuned.

Hope you're all having a terrific week!

Pink Saturday

Happy PINK!!!

I went to a local rummage sale this morning. We were a bit early and there was already a line at the door. As soon as we were let in, the people were swarming like bees! I usually don't hit this type of sale this early and it was funny to watch, and a bit frustrating. People can be greedy. They didn't have much, I only got one old platter. Which didn't fill my need to shop so we hit the Goodwill next where my Aunt found 5 of these plate for me.

The pattern is called Southern Belle by Nasco and is accented with 22 carat gold. Quite pretty I thought. I found a few other goodies too but the guy in line behind me started chatting up a storm and got me so distracted I forgot to use my 10% off coupon. Drat. He is a dedicated shopper, shows up every day. He had to tell me about all the Goodwill's within a 90 mile radius and which ones have the best stuff.  Then there was the lady that had an entire basket of junk in her cart. Come to find out she sells on Ebay and Etsy. Now I know why I haven't been able to find anything there all Winter. Not only do you have to compete with all the local vendors but the online sellers as well. It's tough out there!

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday and a big thank you to Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for hosting for us every week!
