Time for a touch of the IRISH
I've been inspired by many of you to decorate my dining room table to go along with the holidays. I have had so much fun doing this March St. Patricks day table. My Great-great grandfather was born in Ireland and came to the United States. My sister has the only picture we know of and I have borrowed it from her blog.
Here is my entry for the 55th Table top Tuesday and a wonderful new blog I found today Time warp wife for Titus2sdays ,Tablescape Thursday and Pink Saturday (thanks for giving us the chance to share our green)

I bought my new white dishes at Walmart. My hubby doesn't understand why I don't just buy a nice set of dishes but I like to change them out too often. These were on $44. for the full set with a plate,dessert plate, bowl and cup.
