Happy Flashback Friday! It occurred to me this week that I have not done a thing for St. Patrick’s Day. I have to be honest – I typically don’t really decorate or do too much for St. Patrick’s Day. It IS a celebration, so I’m happy I have a little something to share for this very festive day!
Did you know that originally, it was the color blue associated with St. Patrick? Somehow, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around a blue shamrock! Today, it’s Emerald green that brings the luck ‘o the Irish for St. Patrick’s Day. Emerald just also happens to be the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013!
You know I collect vintage post cards and believe it or not, I actually have a few vintage St. Patrick’s Day cards! Yes, it was a total surprise to me when I found them in my collection! For today’s Flashback, it’s seemed perfect to share a few vintage St. Patrick’s Day postcards. Perhaps you could use one of them to make a card or project? Just right-click the image, click Save As, and you can save one of this lovelies to your computer.
Which one is your favorite? I love each of them for different reasons…am kind of partial to the girl in the hat with the flag!
Easter is fast approaching and I would love, love, love to feature some of YOUR most wonderful, funny, etc. Easter memories or traditions. Send me an email or leave me a comment!
There’s a article included below on some fun green food to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Plus, if you are a vintage card lover, check out the New Year’s and Valentine’s cards I shared earlier on the links below. It’s always fun to mix up vintage with modern in just about any kind of project!
Have a happy and relaxing weekend!
