Happy St. Patrick's Day, to you and yours, Lisa! I enjoyed this post so much. I know the most about my ancestors who came from England and just a little about those who came to the USA from Scotland, but learning about their view of the world is interesting. I''m glad you have your scrapbook to treasure, and some interesting books to read...I read and enjoyed ITCOO, too. Now about those cupcakes!!! Oh my!!! MMMMMM enjoy :) xx

Happy St. Patrick's Day! My husband and I have both read all of the Mitford series of books and have so enjoyed them. We're looking forward to the new one coming out. Those cupcakes! Oh my! I don't even want to know how many calories are in them!
Blessings,
Betsy

Gracie, so many of my ancestors came from either Ireland or England, and also Scotland. It really is facinating to me! Happy St. Patrick's Day to you, too! :)

Lisa

Betsy, I totally try not to count calories on holidays! Haha! *hugs* :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day. What a sweet and precious treasure to receive as a wedding gift. My second cousin has been doing a lot of research on our family on my mothers side. So very interesting.
Hope you are having a great week.
Hugs

Donna, I hope you have had a wonderful week! It is amazing what one can uncover in researching their family, isn't it? I agree, so very interesting. I hear that y'all are seeing some warmer temps? Not us, not yet. :)

Well it certainly looks like you've had a lovely St. Patrick's Day!

Family history is really wonderful, isn't it? My aunt scanned hundreds of my grandparents' family photos last year, and one of them was a very old (1940s or so, based on the cars in the shot) snapshot taken by my great-grandfather of Main Street in Bailieborough, Co. Cavan, where my great-grandparents were born and lived until they came to America in the 1920s. We sent my parents on a trip to Ireland for their 40th anniversary and my father took almost exactly the same shot, so close that I was able to crop it so that it was the same as the original, but he hadn't yet seen the original. It was so strange, that he took the same photo as his grandfather did 70 or so years ago...

Lisa

Meghann, that is the greatest story! What a wonderful gift! I would love to take a trip to Ireland one day. :)

I want to jump into your blog! So lovely. And how on earth did I miss In the Company of Others?!?!?

Lisa

Crazy Sheep Lady, only if you let me jump into yours! (I have always loved sheep!) Thank you, Sweet Friend. And you'll have to let me know if you read In the Company of Others. I've only just started it, but am already falling in love with new characters Across the Pond. :)
