Top of the 'Morning to Ye!


Celebrate the Month of March 
St. Patrick's Day!
 With a last name like ~ McDonough...we go all out for decorating and celebrating the holiday!  Each year we decorate the house, attend the city parade, always on the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day (all decked out in green from head to toe, mind you), have a wild Irish party after the parade, AND THEN... (breathe)..... Enjoy another day of festivities on the 17th!  Can you tell it is one of my favorite holidays??

Every year we try and out-do the year before.  Here's is what I have so far for 2013!

Here's to the Wearing o' the Green!

Decorating for the big day has never been easier....

A little Irish Subway Art, via Pinterest, to start ye off!  A great page to print out and frame for the occasion.

Of course, Glass Ornaments are a simple and elegant way to dress up any space :)
Decorate trees, bowls for centerpieces, glass hurricanes, etc.  Find The Whitehurst Company glass at

Happy February!

February 2012

There is so much to celebrate in February!  - if you are talking about the Groundhog ~  I heard Spring is on the way!!!  Here in Rochester, we have had Spring-like days and harsh Winter stormy days.... but, I wouldn't mind Spring-ier conditions.
There are so many other things to look forward to ~starting with tonight... The Super Bowl!  Who do you want to win?  My 12 year old won the first quarter - $2 from the family pool.   Then we have Mardi Gras, Valentine's Day, Winter Break from school, President's Day and the Grammy's to name a few.  So, I have put together a few pictures for February that show off great ways to use your left over Christmas decorations and decorate your home in a festive manner.
