Magic by Moonlight


Well the wee folk didn’t forget us.  Monday night the children laid out their Leprechaun Treasure boxes on the windowsills. 


Hoping that the magic of the fairy moonlight would filter through our ever constant cloud layer, and that the Leprechauns would find our home through the haze.

And sometime overnight our little guests found the children’s boxes, spirited them away, and left a magical trail throughout the house.


They visited our resident leprechauns.


Leaving their trail of magic, pixie dust and wonder in their wake.


They even visited Lea’s little Fairy House.


And hid her treasure box behind the abode.


The Leprechauns couldn’t resist doing a very quite (as to not wake the humans) Irish jig on the piano.


Some boxes were easy to find – others not so much.


The girls got beautiful fairy beads along with some sweets and $ coins.


Their little treasure boxes could hardly be sat down.  Again and again they would admire their shiny new gifts.


The Leprechauns even left a box for me.  And among the goodies was a new clover fairy for my garden.


All in all it was an enchanting day.  With the smell of prairie clover wafting through the home.


And clover blossoms bursting forth in new spring glory.


I couldn’t help but make myself some more Mint Limeade and sit with my kids and watch my favorite Irish movies.

Darby O’ Gill and the Little People & The Secret of Roan Inish.


Hope you all had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day and here’s to Magical  Good Luck throughout the coming year.


Keep your eye’s open for I’ve a green give-away coming up soon.

The fairies and leprechauns don't know how to get to my house---despite the Irish last name!

Wow! What lucky kids to have a visit from leprechauns, and to have such a magical mommy! The leprechauns at our house just play tricks on us like turning our Irish oatmeal green when we stir it, and the milk green when we pour it into our glasses.

Thanks for giving the leprechauns my address. You'll be glad to know that they were very well behaved and didn't seem to cause any mischief while they were here, but did leave some lovely things behind.

I love that Darby is on the TV in the pic! What a fun house you have! Can I come by?

I've tagged you in a gamey-game. Take part - if you dare.

Take care!
