And I'm supposed to keep up with the seasons and holidays and feature creations appropriate to each, right? Right.
And day-before-yesterday was Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, or Pancake Day (depending on where you live), right? Right.
So I filled up my holiday shop with jewelry and such to celebrate, right? Wrong.
Darned if I didn't forget all about it ... again this year. Yep, I forgot it last year too. And of course I wrote all kinds of little notes to remind myself to get at least a strand of Mardi Gras beads into my shop in 2010. Those little notes are no doubt smished up in the back of my desk drawer, behind all the other little reminders not to forget the milk and cheese and eggs and this and that.
But I'll tell you what I'm not going to miss this year: Saint Patrick's Day, that's what. In fact, I've already got some Luck-o-the-Irish Kelly Green in my holiday shop. I'm not stopping there, either. Not on your tam-o'shanter, I'm not.
Drumroll, maestro please! Sure 'tis time for another Etsy Project Embrace Fashion Show, and this one will feature all things green!
To provide the perfect backdrop and get everybody in an Emerald Isle kind of mood, here's a beautiful Serenity Now photo by JaneElizabeths.
And now that the stage is set, I'm off looking for smart little (green) numbers to wear with my Seamus (pronounced shame'-us, laddies and lassies) bracelet.
Here's Nyblaque's* gorgeous Green Chalcedony Earrings, wrapped in 14k gold filled wire ...

Nothing drab about opendoorstudio's khaki drab green Over the Shoulder Bag ...
And won't the little girl next door look smashing in her pretty vintage dress With Butterflies by tailorbee?
It wouldn't be Saint Patrick's Day without at least one shamrock, and 5gardenias has just the thing -- this happy Shamrock Celluloid Brooch!
Now this is what I call a Top o' the Mornin' Celebration! In fact I'm so happy to have found all these green beauties, I feel like dressing up in gooodmorning's Mint Green Sundress and frolicking across a sunny Irish meadow -- maybe the one in JaneElizabeth's photo!
Happy Saint Paddy's Day, Everybody!
