Even My Chalkboards Wish They Were Irish Today!

Hap-Hap-Happy St. Patrick's Day to all!  Just back from my NYC adventure, Alex and I are ready to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with some friends!  Does anyone else wish they were Irish today?  I guess one thing I love is seeing everyone wearing green, it sort of feels like everyone is in the same happy mindset. 

One thing we had blast doing around our house is bringing that fun St. Patrick's Day spirit to all the chalkboards! I picked up some colored chalk and we got to work.  Here is the DIY chalkboard made from that antique window frame all Irish-ed out!
 Even our chalkboard bathroom got a bit of the Irish spirit!
 My favorite bit of Irish themed art was Alex's creation of 'Blarney Man'. I had no idea Alex was so skilled drawing with chalk (I usually get frustrated). Introducing.....our resident Hammers and High Heel's leprechaun....... 'Blarney Man'!
Maybe 'Blarney Man' will be back next year? Unfortunately he never pays his tab and always speaks in riddles :)  Anyway, I hope everyone is wearing green and having a little spirited St. Patty's Day fun!
