Happy St. Patrick's Day



For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way -
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
~Irish Blessing

Did you know "The Wearing of the Green" Irish street ballad dating to 1798? The song speaks of the repression around the time of the Irish Rebellion of 1798. Wearing a shamrock in the "caubeen" (hat) was a sign of rebellion.

Speaking of green, here is a new necklace I am about to list on Artfire.
