Top o' the Mornin' to ya!
Time to celebrate the land of the green!! Saint Patrick's Day began by celebrating Saint Patrick, a 5th century ordained bishop in Ireland where he spread the teachings of the church and used the three-leafed shamrock to teach people about the holy trinity. March 17th, Saint Patrick's Day, marks the date of his death. Saint Patrick's Day in Ireland for many religious people is a holy day, where now in America, it serves as a day to celebrate Ireland, Irish people and Irish culture. Since many Irish Americans have mixed blood (like myself) and many non-Irish friends and family members...Saint Patrick's Day is a day for all of those who are not Irish to be an "Honorary Irishman or Irishwoman". Ireland, with it's wet, lush environment is green through and through and one day perhaps I'll be lucky enough to visit. Until then, I'll happily celebrate this country and it's merry culture from afar...with little green spun cotton, shamrock-clad characters. All of the lads and lasses today have Irish names too! I hope you'll come celebrate with me! :)
As usual, blog readers get first dibs on my new spun cotton one-of-kind figures. Click on photos to enlarge. If you see something(s) you love, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll let you know if they're still available. First come first served! I'll update item statuses in this post as often as I can to make it easier for you to know what's available. Items often get scooped up quickly, so make your selection as swiftly as you can, you can always add available pieces to your order later. Also feel free to include second choices in case your first choice is unavailable, but make sure you label them "second choice".

I send Paypal invoices via email unless you specify that you'd rather pay via check. And of course email me if you have any questions! Happy Shopping!
