Saturday Snippets and St. Patrick's Day Tree 2016

The daffodils are beginning to bloom in the yard so I just had to bring a little bouquet of happiness into the house.
 I used my squatty little $1 thrift store vase and it fits perfectly into the tiered tray centerpiece. 
I aim for a functional centerpiece with a few seasonal touches, and ♥ my old Corelle sugar and creamer set:@)

All of the nice warm weather we've been having in Philly has me thinking about grilling out and I saw this new McCormick Grill Mates Marinade today... Can't wait to try it with pork chops or maybe even the variation on the back that calls for adding mustard, I think that would be good on pork tenderloin.

New items on the St. Pat's tree this year include the leprechaun ornaments from stickers, two smaller clover bead ornaments and a few orange balls (from Halloween clearance). While putting away Christmas I decided to place the box of glitter balls towards the front of the closet for easy access, that allowed me to use some green and gold balls on this tree:@)

New smaller accent bead shamrocks from the $1 bead bin at Walmart. The ornament is about 2" across and I had enough beads to make two.

 Silly tree topper still makes me smile.

We're looking forward to corned beef and cabbage for Sunday dinner, including our favorite quick rye dinner rolls!
Have a happy weekend:@)

  4. Your tree is fun, Lynn. Do you live on a lake?
    Daffodils are available in the grocery in small bundles for a $1. I need to pick some up and fill a vase or too. They do make one smile! Corned beef and cabbage sounds delicious. I think that's what I will make too.

    1. Howdy, not that lucky... It's a wallpaper mural I bought at Home Depot years ago. I do enjoy it though:@)

  5. How nice to pick some daffodils from your yard, Lynn. I really like the tiered stand so much, and I think we have the same salt and pepper grinders. Your St. Patrick's Day tree looks so festive and your family will be happy with that and your yummy dinner tomorrow.

  6. Lynn, your little tree is darling! I do the same thing with my "RED" box of things...keeping it at close hand from Christmas to Valentines to Memorial Day to Flag Day to the Fourth all the way through Labor Day.
    I'm jealous that you've got daffs blooming already. We've barely got green tips poking up!

    p.s. Your Pineapple Meringue Pie on the sidebar looks BEAUTIFUL!!! I'm off to check out that post right now. Don't know how I missed that one.

  9. I need to check my yard, but I don't think my daffodils are ready to blossom yet! You're all ready for St. Patty's Day! I wish Bill would eat corned beef.

  11. Love your St. Patrick's Day Tree!! I love the white Tree. I used an evergreen one for mine. And I really like the gold tinsel garland. I just may have to use gold garland on mine next year!! Thanks for the inspiration and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you!

  13. I didn't get past the daffodils. They are absolutely my favorite. My mother grew lots of different varieties and there were always flowers in our bedrooms when we were growing up.

  15. You are so lucky to have daffs blooming already! We've had a fairly mild stretch but it looks like we're going downhill toward the end of the week. I'm just starting to see the daff leaves poke out from the ground here.

  16. Hi Lynn,

    I love your double-tier centerpiece; it's so unusual. Your daffodils are beautiful--love those big yellow centers! Your St. Patrick's tree is looking good; I really like those accent bead shamrocks. Your Sunday lunch sounds yummy, Lynn; wishing you a festive St. Patrick's Day and lovely weekend, too!
