I'll probably add some green glass scatters when I can find them! In the meantime, have I gone completely off my rocker!

Well, the Homage to Woolworth's at valentine's Day is put away; here's my St. Patrick's Village--the colors chosen are for their flag, orange, white and of course, green, the green vintage glasses from the 70's will soon have dyed carnations in them, the orange plates are vintage, as is the white fence and church; the stone cottage putz on the left is by Howard Lamey--the figures beneath it are vintage and given a very temporary green wash; the sheep and horse are new but antiqued. The church on the right is a vintage Raylite, the Irish woman is a dollar store find, antiqued and given a green gown. The ornaments in the "trees" are made by me. Buildings are all lit with battery operated lights. The little steel horse and wagon is antique Christmas toy with a cardboard facade to hide the word "ICE". The cabin is a an old Playskool/Fisher Price toy that I repainted. The antique etching above is from 1898 and I have to do more research on it!
