It’s my lucky day!
I don’t think there’s much Irish in either BluesRay or me, but we’re celebrating St Patrick’s Day anyway.
The table has a vintage white cotton damask cloth to start, topped with a wonderful Startex print of lucky charms.
The tag says it’s a kitchen towel.
The square shape says it’s a table topper! Because this is my house . . . .
But, man, those were the golden days of kitchen textiles. Imagine an entire drawer in your kitchen, filled with colorful printed Startex towels. Luck of the stylish, indeed.
There’s a lucky horseshoe. A lucky elephant. Two lucky numbers. And two lucky rabbit’s feet!
Not to mention a lucky wishbone and a slew of lucky four-leaf clovers. Or shamrocks. Take your pick.
We’re using Lu-Ray plates in Windsor green, plus some vintage plastic-handled forks that were made in Taiwan. Wish I could find more of them!
The corned beef’ll go in the oven this afternoon. Dessert? That’s all set.
Happy St Patrick’s Day!
