The Wearin' of the Green

I was at the thrift store the other day and found this vintage print that made me laugh:

I couldn't bear to leave it behind, so I brought it home and it inspired me to do some St. Patrick's Day crafting:

First I scanned it and added it as an element of this little wall hanging.

The silly setter also ended up on one side of this tag!

I made a few hanging decorations. Don't you love that little shamrock charm?

I used to have one just like it when I was a kid!

I made several different hangings, plus three tags which I'm selling all together as a set.

They're all available now in my Etsy shop!
