I hope you are having a lovely St Patrick’s Day. I thought I’d share some of my favourite vintage 40s items from Etsy for St Patricks Day:
and here’s a vintage St. Patrick’s Day dinner menu from “The New American Cookbook” from 1942 :
Grapefruit halves with mint
Clover leaf rolls (love this idea!)
Cottage cheese in green pepper rings
Homemade Pistachio ice cream (yum!)
You can find the recipes here.

Artist Mark Churms captured Yorktown, in this stunning painting:
A big thank you to the entire crew!
I’m off to find a glass of Guinness,
