For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad."

  1. I love all the sweet green finds! The Belleek dish is so pretty with the shamrocks on it. I bunny glass is adorable. Your full place setting of mixed china is perfect for St. Patrick's Day and spring too! Have a great day and week!

  2. Judy I love this post!!! I also love the color green which I've adored long before I married an Irishman! The corning-ware pattern I grew up with and looked at that pattern for many a year! Your green Good Will plate with the building exterior we had before the corning-ware. My mother had gotten them from the A&P back in the early mid 1960's. I found one at a flea market years ago but haven't seen anymore since. The bunny glass is adorable and I love the Belleek with the shamrocks...so pretty and what a steal!
    Happy St. Patrick's Day Judy!!!

  6. I love all of your green finds. My favorite is the embossed plate - just beautiful.

    I was not familiar with Belleek before this past week when I saw three different posts featuring the sweet pieces.

    You have a good eye, for seeing and finding such cheap and lovely glassware ,plates and other nice things.
    We dont have shops like that here. I think I would go crazy. I would have to buy more cupboards to put them in.
