I messed up. I did, and I can’t really fix it at the moment since I waited until the last minute, so this week’s post about shamrocks, will also be about four leaf clovers!

Now, even if you don’t care how I messed up and my explanation, I’m going to tell you anyway. If you really, really don’t care, then just scroll down to look at the pretty picture and the participants that know how to follow directions better than I do.

So, here’s the deal…did you know that shamrocks are often confused with four leaf clovers? Well, fancy that. Tell me more, Melissa. OK, I will. According to Wikipedia – “The four-leaf clover is often confused with the shamrock. While the four-leaf clover is a symbol of good luck, the three-leafed shamrock is mainly an Irish Christian symbol of the Holy Trinity and has a different significance.”

Well, there you go. I didn’t know that or really put much thought into it before now. I was looking up some info about shamrocks, you know, to seem knowledgeable, when I came across this bit. I then went on over to my photo to confirm my suspicions….yep, it’s a four leaf clover. Oh well, it’s still cute.


I hope you all had a very lucky St. Patty’s day and the luck continues throughout the year!

Now, if you’d like to see if Marcela followed directions, click here and here for Rachael. Our other entries are below, enjoy!

A. Maggie Lueg: Our St Patty’s Day toddler cooking project here was making a green cake.  Had I been any more organized, I would have found myself a shamrock cookie cutter… but instead this is the freehand cake shamrock we created out of each piece.

B. Jordan Nuques, Martinez, GA, Shamrocks: Sometimes I feel like such a SHAM because I don’t finish what I say I’m going to do; other times I feel like I ROCK because I actually do. This photo was taken on St. Paddy’s Day morning. I was SO tired the night before and went to bed instead of knocking out two shirts and two skirts. Well, the skirts didn’t happen, but my girls were so happy to get their finished shirts the next morning. So, to all you moms with good intentions, but with little or no time, give yourself a pat on the back because YOU rock!

C. Picture name: Shamrock

My shamrock was found on the top of a cupcake that my daughter brought home from school on Saint Patrick’s Day.  The cupcake is sitting in a candle holder that my husband brought back from Ireland.

D. Stephanie Henry, Martinez, GA: While driving around on St. Patrick’s Day I decided to stop and get a green treat.  I really thought Dunkin Donuts would have a green icing donut.  They didn’t but I still had to get a donut.  To my surprise the sprinkles had little shamrocks on them.  So cute (and yummy)

Nice shamrocks, ladies 🙂


OK, get ready to dig deep people. Our next assignment is PASSION. I will do my best, not to wait until Sunday and I hope you all get some great photos that symbolize passion for you. As always, please email your photo to me by Sunday night if you’d like it included in my post. Happy shooting!
