Irish Porcelain...

Happy Saint Patricks Day...

(click photos to enlarge)

I thought for Saint Patricks Day,
I would share with you,
a couple pieces of Belleek Irish Porcelain,
My sweet husband bought me,
many years ago,
and a random mug :-)

This is a vintage Belleek Thistle Vase,
It is so delicate..

Here is a close up of the thistle leaves and petals,
they are all hand applied.

This is a newer piece,
it was the first gift my husband ever bought me :-)
 it's the Belleek butterfly salad bowl.

Here is the random mug...
It came from a garage sale forever ago,
it has no marks,
I have just always thought it looked very Irish.
I love the ruffled lip.

I hope the Luck of The Irish is with you Today!

Today I am joining Kathleen at Faded Charm
Stop by and enjoy some lovely posts!

Thanks for stopping by,
