Irish Beleek

I returned from my trip just in time to wish everyone a Happy Saint Patrick's Day! And in honor of the day I wanted to share some of my Beleek china  from Ireland with you. I inherited this collection from my aunt who collected them piece by piece over many years. I am always amazed by the translucency and delicacy of some of the pieces, particularly the cups...you can see right through them, yet they are quite strong; strength, delicacy and beauty, what a wonderful combination.

I hope that your day tomorrow is filled with the luck of the Irish...maybe you will find a four-leaf clover!
