St. Patrick's Wearing O' The Green

Happy Terrible Cell Phone Photos of my contribution to The Wearing O' The Green today!

Any excuse to wear emerald footwear right?

Edited to add: Visit Evenshine's blog for a gorgeous poem from the breastplate of St. Patrick.

Edited again because I forgot about this from last year and it's too cute:

We watched The Quiet Man, the old John Wayne movie. When John Wayne first sees Maureen O'Hara, backlit by the sun in the emerald fields of Ireland, he's captivated.

This is Maureen O'Hara.


Shark Boy, snuggled up next to me, says "She's so pretty I don't think she's real."

He pauses and then says:

"You're so pretty I don't think you're real either."

(I think he added that so I wouldn't be jealous.)

Later in the movie he observes, "She's got freckles and a temper (a line from the movie). I bet she'd give me a lot of trouble."

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Great shoes and Shark boy is a doll! I wonder what green bear tastes like? Not a big beer fan but it would be neat to try.

I would rip those shoes right off your feet! You are oh-so-lucky I can't get to them. BTW - Green is my favourite colour.

Jill said...

Damn girl! Your shoe closet is just full of fabulosity, isn't it!

p.s. That boy of yours is going to be quite the charmer, isn't he? Cute story. Thanks for sharing!

I adore that boy! Love the St Patty's shoes. And, The Quiet Man? I'm required to view it at least once a St Patty's. My fav Duke movie.
