Happy St. Patrick's Day, Shamrock Items

Wishing you all a Happy St. Patrick's day...with an antique postcard!


St. Patrick's Day was celebrated today by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine, with the Irish Guards at Mons Barracks in Aldershot...



Which is an annual tradition with the Royal family....the Irish Guards being one of the 5 brigades of the Queen's Guards...

And in honour of St. Patrick's Day...I looked out some shamrock themed items from Time Was Antiques....
