Since tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would show you one of my new acquisitions. I am a collector of milk glass, but at this point in my collection, I only purchase unusual pieces or pieces that speak to me. These definitely spoke to me! They are the perfect addition to my St. Patrick's Day decor. We often serve desserts on the Reading Room table. I have these ready for after dinner coffee.

If you don't have time for an Irish dinner, make sure to watch The Quiet Man. My all time favorite movie. It is a wonderfully, romantic movie staring John Wayne as Sean Thornton and Mauren O'Hara and Mary Kate Danaher. A delightful character in the movie is the spirited Michaeleen Oge Flynn played by Barry Fitzgerald. I hear that Turner Classic Movies may not play The Quiet Man tomorrow and to that I say "WHAT?". It is the best St. Patrick's Day movie ever!
The Ring of Kerry is a lovely drive encompassing some of the most beautiful sites in Ireland.
I found this little castle for rent several years ago while researching Ireland. According to their website:
the castle, an ancient seat of the Comerford clan, is a five story, 16th century towerhouse 8 km south of the medieval city of Kilkenny. The castle has been restored to its former authentic glory using the same techniques and materials as the original 16th century builders. Couldn't we have a great blogger party here?
Hope you have enjoyed our tour of Ireland. Irish Blessings from Still Woods Farmhouse!
