St. Patrick's Pink Saturday

Our hostess, Beverly, suggested we share a St. Patrick theme today.  I have very little around my place that qualifies.  No doubt if you drop by the participates will have many of their own greens to show off.

This pretty images from the internet.
This Gold Leaf, four leaf clover, is the closest thing I have that might apply to St Patrick's day. I bought this for a special couple I knew several years ago for their Golden Wedding anniversary. On the back of the leaf is: "One leaf is for HOPE, and One is for FAITH, and One is for LOVE, you know, and God put another in for LUCK". Both of them passed away in the last couple of years.  When the family had an estate sale, they gave it back to me. This picture does not do it justice.  It is a very pretty, bright brass finish.
Another pretty internet image.

Hi LV, What a lovely gift given to your friends. The photo shows just how lovely! I'm sure you remember them each time you look at the gift, and how thoughtful of the family to return it to you! HPS.....and
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

What a lovely remembrance from you to them and then back to you---full circle.

It's beautiful and I know it was one of their treasures for all the time they enjoyed it.

Luck and Love and all other good things to you, Sweetpea!

What a great piece to remember them by! :) I have a few things of my grandmother's that I got back after she passed, as well. It makes me smile to see them and remember her.
