Thinking Out Loud Thursday - March 15, 2018

It's Thursday already!  Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday.  Hope you link up below and share what you're thinking out loud about today.

Today I'm thinking out loud about St. Patrick's Day, specifically our decorations.  I love decorating for any and all holidays and am so glad that we have a little time between St. Patrick's Day and Easter this year.  Sometimes the two holidays are so close together I'm actually putting up our Easter decorations on Good Friday!

Now for the photo dump.  Let's start with the outside.  One of the easiest way to dress up your mailbox is with a magnetic wrap.  The one I have is from MailWraps is available HERE.

I just couldn't pass up the matching garden flag that went with the mailbox cover.  You can check it out HERE.

One of our best purchases were the tall black planters on each side of the front door.  Since it's way too cold for flowers or plants, I love the arrangements my friend Carol made a couple years ago.  So far they have held up so well and this makes the third year we were able to use them.  Interested in the planters?  They are available HERE.

Now let's move inside.  I made the wood blocks myself (thanks Home Depot for cutting the wood for me) and have been going to replace the letters spelling "lucky" since the minute I finished gluing them on.  I wish I would have done them on gold or orange or anything a little big and bolder.  But until someday comes and I redo them, I'm settling for the way they are ~

Even though this fabric banner is several years old, I still love it.  It adds texture and color to the mantel!

This little picture frame sits on the sink in our guest bathroom and displays a print for whatever season or holiday we're celebrating.  This particular St. Patty's subway art was a free printable I found HERE.

One year after St. Patrick' Day I picked up a couple pillows.  I just might keep a lookout for some more bargain pillows this year.   I have my eye on THIS ONE.

My friend TW and I wondered in some antique shops a few weeks ago and I picked up this gem - a pot full of shamrocks.

Cheers to St. Patrick's Day!  I hope you all have the luck of the Irish with you!

Now it's your turn - what are you thinking about today?  Looking forward to reading your post!

  1. Wow Penny. I have a hard time just decorating for Fall and Christmas. You go girl!

  2. Wow, that is really impressive. Very nice. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful Thursday.

  3. I’m so impressed with your St. Pat’s decor and love when people redesign their living spaces with each new holiday. Maybe that’s because my parents had Halloween decor up year round (lazy lol). I love your finds (and those planters!).

  4. WOW! How fun are all your decorations? I didn't really do any decorating for St. Patrick's Day and now I wish I had! I might make something with the kiddo though, there's still time for that!

  5. Oh how cute! I don't have anything for St. Patrick's Day but I love everything you've done at your house. That mailbox cover is adorable! And I really like the decorations for your outdoor planters. Too fun.


  6. You're so festive! I love it!

  7. Love the decorations. I am lucky if I even get around to decorating for Christmas. :-)

  8. Oh I just LOVE all your decorations. I always swore growing up that I was going to decorate my house for all the seasons and yet I never ever do. I'm slowly trying to get a few things here and there but then I have to store it all and keep track of it until the next year.

  9. Oh, I love it all. Green is my favorite color but I have never decorated for St. Patrick's Day. Maybe next year, I need to change that. Your decorations are so fun, love the blocks on the mantel and your garland. Happy St. Patrick's Day, sweet friend.

  10. Wow. Just wow. I love it all! I so wish we had individual mail boxes right now because I had no idea they had covers for them! Seriously, everything looks so amazing and festive.
