Celebrating St. Patrick's Day in Ticky Tacky Town

Happy St. Patrick's Day! 

May the roof above you never fall in and those gathered beneath it never fall out.

I made a few Irish Ticky Tacky houses for the occasion. 
And today I celebrate my Irish ancestry. 
My paternal ancestors emigrated to the U.S. and Canada from Ireland. 

In loving memory of those Irish immigrants: 

David Joynt and Bridget McDermott Joynt, great great grandparents
Michael Joynt and Bridget Brennan Joynt, great grandparents
John Walsh and Margaret Herron Walsh, great great great grandparents
James Brennan and Catherine Walsh Brennan, great great grandparents
Myles McNally and Mary McDonnell McNally, great great grandparents

What fun houses! You certainly have the perfect fabric to celebrate St. Patrick's Day!

Thank you and Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too!
Yes, we've got Irish in our lineage, 'the luck O' the Irish be with ya.'
Fun houses, cheerful.

I've not a bit of Irish in me as far as I know, although my children do compliments of their father, but isn't everyone Irish on St Patrick's Day? I really do need to start making some of these ticky, tacky houses.

Love that saying and of course your little houses are always a favourite.

Great houses. All of my ancestors are Polish. However, I was raised Catholic and I still feel that connection to St. Patrick.

Love those little green houses. So fast and easy and cute. Have you ever read of Jean Grainger's books. She lives in Ireland and writes historical fiction. Very interesting, combining some history of the country along with the family history.
