Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Leprechaun and A Tablescape

I am so excited to present to you Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Leprechaun! They have been hiding out in one of my cabinets for a couple of months and now is their big day to make their first appearance on my table.

They are both by Hoffman and are musical decanters. At one time they were filled with Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Just wind them up and they play a little tune. Aren't they just the cutest ever!

Along with our friends, Joy and Rick, we made a trip to the Branson, MO, area in January. The area is known for its live shows, shopping, and beautiful Table Rock Lake. 

For years, I have looked for the perfect centerpiece for a St. Patty's Day table, so you know I was beyond thrilled to find the pair while Joy and I were antiquing on the trip. 

I know there are lots of bloggers who love Bordallo Pinheiro, and I am one of those bloggers too.

Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Leprechaun seem it fit right it with the Bordallo crowd. I knew they would be perfect for the table.

I chose a rusty red cloth napkin to pull out the red in Mr. Lucky's beard. The two are standing on a beaded green shamrock placemat from Home Goods. 

My collection of Bordallo Pinheiro probably began 10 or more years ago when I found them at a Tuesday Morning shop in the Kansas City area where we were living at the time. Since then, I have added several pieces to my collection through eBay and antique shops.

My stack of Bordallo earthenware for today's table includes a 12-inch charger, a 10.5-in dinner plate, a 9-inch salad bowl and a 4.5-inch bowl, all in the cabbage design. The placemat is a pale gold, and the gold flatware is by Rogers Co. 

Several varieties of Jonquils are blooming in my garden. This morning, I cut some tiny ones for the two Belleek vases. 

These tiny jonquils have double yellow blooms and only grow about 5 or 6 inches tall in my gardens.

What do you think about my fabulous find of Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Leprechaun? 

Stop back after my Saint Patrick's Day party to see what we served, and a few other Bordallo Pinheiro pieces not shown today. 

Thanks for stopping in to see Mr. and Mrs. Lucky Leprechaun and my tablescape. - Judy.

P.S. - In case you were wondering about the guys on the trip, they had a great time fishing on the other side of the dam on Lake Tanneycomo and here's the proof. That's my hubby with the Rainbow Trout plus Rick caught a 20-inch one (sorry no pic of Rick's big one).
