My Shamrocks & Shirley Tree

My package arrived on Friday from my Secret Leprechaun! Isn't this Leprechaun box wonderful? 
Shirley (from Zetta's Aprons) really outdid herself.
My darling box was just filled with all sorts of lovely little packages.
A gorgeous tag, mischievous Leprechauns, chocolate candies and fun tag bunting.
I've never decorated my year-round tree for St. Patrick's before and it's now full of shamrocks, Shirley's special gifts and other things that I put together in my craft room.
My tree topper is an Irish hat.
Shirley's Leprechauns look right at home.
I purchased the pin and miniature Leprechaun on Etsy.
Thank you Shirley!  I love it all!  Whenever I look at my St. Patty's tree, I'll be thinking of YOU!
Thank you for hosting such a fun secret swap, Viv!

Those chenille leprechauns are adorable. I may have to try to make some of those this weekend. Your St Patty's tree is very festive. I may have Girl Scout cookies on the mind, but when I saw the second to last photo I immediately thought it was a little Girl Scout with her merit badge. Is it bad that I see Girl Scout emblems everywhere now? Where are the Thin Mints?
