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.

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.
