Irish Lady With Harp: Vintage Postcard

Irish Lady With Harp: Vintage Postcard (1916) Click To Download A Copy


Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day, isn’t it grand to know the heart and soul of you belongs to Ireland!

Irish Blessing

May those that love us, love us.
And those that don’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn’t turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles
So we will know them by their limping.

Each leaf on the four leaf clover represents one of the following:

  • 1st leaf is Hope
  • 2nd is Faith
  • 3rd is Love
  • 4th is Luck

Tip: Never iron a four-leaf clover, because you don’t want to press your luck!
