She wore green with pride and always said “everyone is a little Irish today"…
May the wind blow at your back.
May the sun shine warmly on your face.
May the rain fall softly on your fields.
Until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

My camera is out getting fixed, so I wasn't going to do today's show and tell.
But I saw a lovely post about the meaning of the butterfly that is placed in each mosaic pieces done by Penny of http://lavenderhillstudio.blogspot.com/.
This reminded me of some pictures I have of one of my favorite dolls in my collection.
Her name is Zelle and she is a reproduction Bleuette, the pictures were taking a few years ago.
My granddaughter Emma and I found 3 monarch caterpillars while walking in our back field. We brought them inside on the milkweed that they were found on so that Emma could take them home and watch them change into butterflies... When it was time for Emma to go, one of the caterpillars was missing, so Emma happily took the two remaining ones home.
A few days later I found a chrysalis (see in above picture) under Zelle's birdcage,
and the following Sunday I woke up to this bit of magic on my doll's hand.
This is Zelle outside letting the butterfly free.
