Fun Shopping

by Maggie Sefton


 Photos show some of  my fun Saint Patrick's Day shopping.  


Those of you who have elementary school children or grandchildren will understand
 my post today.  I have a dear 10-year old granddaughter back in Northern Virginia, AnaSofia, and I do enjoy buying "kid stuff" for her.  But this year, I also have the opportunity to buy Saint Patrick's Day "fun stuff" for three more young children.   Yay! 






In addition to my 10-year old AnaSofia, I also shopped for a five-year old little girl, a seven-year old little girl, and an 11-turned 12 year old boy.  I had a lot of fun doing that Saint Patrick's Day shopping, believe me.  I really believe I have never lost my "inner child."  So----I love checking out all the cute, silly, and funny St. Paddy's Day "stuff."  I mailed off two large post office Priority Mail boxes for the larger family as well as a large box for AnaSofia.





Sorry this photo is sideways.  My photo-editing icon stopped cooperating last night.  

I found a really cute St. Patrick's Day card (copyright laws prevent my showing pix) with a photo of a  chubby Pug doggie with a Sherlock Holmes hat on the front of the card.  Plus, an adorable kitten card.  Cute message inside, too.  :)    Plus, Shamrock stickers.   I also found pretty little Shamrock Green play necklaces and hair bows, knitted wrist bands, several pastel colored adorable stuffed bunny rabbits, Peppermint-flavored cake mix, and a container of . . .you guessed it. . . Shamrock Green frosting.  And for good measure, some of the bakery's yummy Chocolate soft cookies that have green and white M& Ms all over them.  Yep.  Candy-coated cookies.  You've gotta love it.  Oh, yes, and a booklet of all kinds of Disney Princess stickers and coloring pages, as well as a booklet of Yoda and Star Wars villains and heroes.  I also found two packages of those little cars that all kids love to play with.  Oh, and a magazine all about cars, all kinds of cars.  

See?  I wasn't kidding when I said I had a lot of fun.  :)
