James Morrison is an English singer/songwriter who rose to fame in 2006 with his début single, “You Give Me Something” (song number three on the above playlist) peaking at #5 in the UK and #1 in New Zealand. It became a hit in Europe, Australia, Japan, & Iran. I find his soulful, rock style is rather nice and easy to listen to while writing posts or reading others.
This month, I putting together multiple daily posts into one. I don’t know if this will make life any easier while I work on my April A-Z posts but that’s my hopes.
I’m joining Les from Ink Interrupted for Tuesday Coffee Chat this week and this morning’s prompt: Where are your Lucky Charms? It’s St. Patrick’s Day this week, whether you are Irish or not, do you have any special totems or symbols of your culture?
Me Lucky Charms are in the cupboard, lassie. Where else would they be? 😉
I know you’re talking about cereal but I couldn’t resist being my usual silly self with this prompt. When DD#1 began her junior year in our homeschool high school I knew I didn’t want to get our kids the typical class ring and that’s when I began thinking about our Irish culture. That’s when I found this not-so-expensive Claddagh rings with our daughters in mind from Creative Irish Gifts.
We got DS one from the same site but either they no longer have it or I’m not remembering what it looked like. He had a masculine style Claddaugh ring.
Many, many years ago when we use to get our annual Christmas bell from Helix Pewter & Copper just before they closed their business door for good DH got me small Claddaugh windchime. I think it’s meant to be hung on a Christmas tree but I have hung by a cord from the ceiling. It makes the slightest tinkling sound if I blow on the chimes. What I’d like to get is a horseshoe to put on our door. While I am not superstitious, I do like the legion behind the hanging of the horseshoe of good fortune and is a sign that keeps Satan away, otherwise, I just think it’s a nice Irish decoration. I bet I could find an old horseshoe at my in-laws’ place. I’m gonna have to look the next time we visit. 😉
That’s a wrap for this morning. I’m hopping over to Stacy’s for Random Tuesday Thoughts and you’re welcome to join me if you want. I hope you’ll hop & link up tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.
I hope you’ll join me at midnight and link up with my mid-week meme not-so Wordless Wednesday.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
