I hope you remember to wear green so you won't get pinched!

If you have nothing planned today, I have a few suggestions:


1.  What to make:





Welcome spring with this beautiful moss wreath.  
Tutorial from HGTV

2.   What to arrange:



This is one of the prettiest floral arrangements I have ever seen!
This bouquet of green flowers – roses, calla lilies, hydrangeas, bells of Ireland, and viburnum – is placed in a basic container that is covered entirely in Kelly green ribbon...stunning!


3.   What to bake:




Lucky Charms Cupcakes



I love the little cupcake picks on these!

4.   What to read:





One of my favorite books
Read about Irish history through a storyteller's tales in this classic Irish novel.



5.   What to watch:



One of my favorite movies!
Here's the trailer:




6.  What to download:

In honor of St. Patrick's Day and Musical Monday, I wanted to share the world's favorite Irish band's latest song produced by Modest Mouse.  I love this song, and the black and white video is very pretty!



U2 "Invisible"


"Invisible"
It’s like the room just cleared of smoke
I didn’t even want the heart you broke
It’s yours to keep
You just might need one
I finally found my real name
I won’t be me when you see me again
No, I won’t be my father’s son
I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
More than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body in a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible
That's right
I’ll be in the invisible world
I don’t dream, not as such
I don’t even think about you that much
Unless I start to think at all
All those frozen days
And your frozen ways
They melt away your face like snow
I’m more than you know
I’m more than you see here
I’m more than you let me be
I’m more than you know
A body in a soul
You don’t see me but you will
I am not invisible
I am here
I am here
There is no them
There is no them
There’s only us
There’s only us
There is no them
There is no them
There’s only us
There’s only us
There is no them
There is no them
There’s only you
And there’s only me
There is no them


Join Miss Angie for Musical Monday!!!


Until next time...
Pinch like you mean it!

  1. I knew I could count on you! Beyond my shamrock necklace and socks, green shirt and sweater from Ireland...I was a bit stumped! How have I not even seen that movie?

  2. I love Leap Year. We were just going over our favorite bands through the decades and hubby loves U2. I think he saw them about ten times live and traveled to other states too. I guess he loved them right?
