In honor of St Pat’s Day, we thought you might enjoy exploring an Irish castle…to be virtually yours for this day.
Home of the Earls of Longford for 350 years, it contains history, furnishings, and architecture covering three centuries. That should take you some time to putter around!
And exploring anything that large will certainly work up an appetite, so we thought a quick flight to England and a lovely dinner for a few of your close friends and family at Windsor might be appropriate this evening. Each of the trusses is handmade and the wood comes from 300 green oak trees cut from the royal grounds. Say hi to the Queen should you meet her in the halls!
and this splendid set of Sevres vases which I would love to borrow when you’re done with them:
I’ll check back here regularly through the day, so if any readers would like to leave Minna a few virtual gifts, I’ll post them throughout the day. Minna, I’d love to post a photo of you (or your pets or any other favorite object <G>) on the blog, but you’d have to give me a computer link to it so I can retrieve it. If you don’t have a website, you could email an image to PBRice@aol.com . Any other virtula gifts can be mailed that way as well if you don’t have a web link.
PS: I’m amending this after discovering a number of our wenchly readers have material chosen by Bookends Literary Agency in their opening paragraph contest. Check it out at: http://bookendslitagency.blogspot.com/ And congratulations all of you! I know you’ve been working hard. Doesn’t justification feel fine?
