Lucky Charms

I'm late to show and tell. Sometimes work gets in the way of blogging. But don't tell my boss.

Lucky for me, I have a couple of lucky charms. So hopefully I won't get fired.

I'm extremely lucky. I caught not just one, but two leprechauns. And I thought I would show them to you.
I have them on my mantel and under glass (so they won't escape).

Don't you think I was pretty lucky to find not only a boy, but a girl leprechaun?

The girl is so sweet. She wants to give you a kiss.

That is just her trick so you will help her escape.

But you aren't going to fall for her trick are you?

I didn't think so.
Even if she starts to sing, we will be strong & not let her escape.

Now this guy, he might be another story. He was harder to trap.

I had to lure him with gold coins.

He is going to try & flirt with you so that you will help him escape.

He may even offer you something to drink.

Or even offer you some of his gold.

But I know that you are strong. You aren't going to fall for any of his tricks. Even if he winks at you.

I hope that you have enjoyed seeing my Lucky Charms. I got these two figurines off ebay last year.

The lucky sign I made. I used black frames I picked up at Dollar Tree. I love the shape of the opening of the frame.

The letters came from a CD I got with a book called Memories of a Lifetime: Weddings. I got mine from I saved the images in Picasa & changed them up using warmfly in effects. I liked this better than straight sepia.

I usually don't decorate as much for St Patty's day. I do have a couple of other areas that I will share with you sometime next week. My china hutch will probably just get a spring makeover. I think it is still a bit too early for Easter. But who knows.

So until next week, have a good weekend. Now I better get back to work before the boss catches me.

And don't worry, I actually put this together on my lunch break. So I won't get fired.

Oh, and no leprechauns were hurt in the making of this post.

And I promise to let them go on March 18th.

  2. Hilarious post! And what a great mantlescape...I wondered how you made the 'lucky' sign, and was happy to read you like to use 'warmify'. I do too...I usually do a b&W, then warmify. Much nicer than plain sepia :)

    I'm hungry for breakfast cereal now....
