Going off line to get back on line!

I've been doing a little decorating and this is the only thing I have that is St.Patrick, but I love these little guys and I collect minature tea sets. I am part Irish, as my great grandmother was a McFarlain and you can't get any more Irish than that. She had the brightest red hair and I guess that is where my carrot top hair came from when I was young.
Most people believe that a Shamrock is a 4 leaf clover, but as far as I know from a friend that went and brought me back some things, it's actually 3 leaves. My mom has some wild clover growing and it's rare that you find a 4 leaf.

These are a little child's pieces but I seen the possibilities of making a little showbox with the hutch and although it's not completely finished, I have gotten to the point of only adding embellishments.

This is step 2 and it wasn't easy cutting little pieces to fit inside the hutch.
This is the bottom and I didn't like the chunky knobs for legs, so out came the bead box and I like the way the they look. I am going to use beads for the handles unless I can find some tiny little crystal beads that look like old knobs.

Now for the other news. My computer will be cut off soon, so I am going to work on my Spring giveaway while I have DSL installed--yes you read it correctly--I'm going into the 21St. Century here in the country-LOL! Dial up is so bad and the trouble I had with ATT is more than one person should endure.
So until then, I bid you a great weekend, like we are having.. It's shorts  and capri time, but I will miss Old Man Winter, but this has been the longest winter I can remember in the South. Love and Hugs, Pat
