Happy St Patricks Day + Flax Fox

Happy St Patrick's Day! If you are into that kind of thing - I am not. {Update: I have just seen some photos of St. Patrick's Parade in Belfast today, the costumes were amazing, thanks in part to my cousin Christine}.

For the first time in my life, I have heard of potted shamrock this week {from more than one source}. Do people really buy such things?
Anyway, look what arrived in the post for me today! It's a print of Belfast terraces from Flax Fox. They look exactly like that too. I think it is an early birthday present from my brother - he is really the only likely suspect. Thanks brother G! You can see more of Flax Fox out and about in Belfast here.

For the first time ever I went to the St Patrick's Day parade in Belfast. Only because my boyfriend (who is Australian not even Irish) was playing trumpet in it and I thought my nephew would find it fun. He cried through most of it so I thought wrong (my nephew, not my boyfriend)

But, anyway, a big thank you for a plug for Flax Fox. We're really glad you like your print!

Loving your blog by the way, I think I'll have to start following!
