A Creative Adventure in Ireland

Toni has put up another creative adventure just in time of St Patrick's Day and I am joining in with this Irish themed fill in the blanks she has provided.
 You can try it yourself at Toni's Creative Adventures site.

1.   While walking in a countryside in Ireland, I see a strange green glow coming from behind a large  tree.

2.   Being the curious kind I decide to take a closer look at it and see that it is a lantern hanging from a limb of a tree.
Glowing fireflies twinkle around it flitting in every direction..They seem to light up the whole area.
It is fascinating and dazzles the eyes.

3.   Much to my surprise  I  almost sat on a Leprechaun as I bent to sit down by the tree to enjoy the firefly show.
 "Don't sit on me, girly!" he said shaking his fist and huffing with indignation.
I stood open mouthed and amazed at what I was seeing. I shook my head to clear the cobwebs. No change, the leprechaun was still there looking up at me.
"Well, are you going to apologize for nearly sitting on me, girly?" 
"Yes. I am sorry. Do you have a pot of gold?" I asked.
The question startled him and his eyes opened wide. His mouth opened and closed a couple of times, speechless. I had caught him unawares with that question.
He leapt up and broke into a run across the valley toward the mountains.
 I am not sure what possessed me, but I began to run after him, but he was too quick and nimble and disappeared into the evening mist.
It was no use to continue, it was getting far too late and I could barely see the path anymore.  
And, after all, I was only frightening the little man. He probably thought I wanted his pot o'gold.
4.   Deciding this must truly be a Irish fairy tale, I, laughing, thought to myself that what began as an average day turned into an adventure for sure.


  1. Surely,he should have offered you a wee dram of Jamieson's before scooting off !
    If neighborly,it would have warmed you...if crafty,it might have slowed you,to make his escape easier !
    Happy St.Patrick's Day,my friend !
    Be well

    1. No thanks. I'd have turned it down. No alcohol here.

  2. Loved your Irish adventure, Annie. I stopped by early yesterday because I knew you would have a fun tale to tell. I was pleased to read it this morning. I loved it. Did you do the Lepchaun and the lantern? Have a lovely day.

    1. The lantern is by me. The Leprechaun is from the net. :) Thanks Dianna :)

  3. {{{giggling}}}} LOVE IT!!! Hope you have a beautiful day, friend.

  4. Great stuff! :) Happy St. Patrick's Day!!! (just in case I don't get by on Saturday!)

  5. LOL! I love your adventures Annie. You always make me glad I still keep creating more of them. Your lantern is perfect and so real looking. Have a day of blessings my friend.

  6. Oh what fun!! I do wish you could have followed him all the way to the pot of gold...maybe he was friends with my tiny little Irish maiden who invited me to tea! I'll bet they were somewhere in the same little Irish village, don't you? I'm surprised you and I didn't run in to each other...and Toni too!! What fun that would have been! I love your little adventure...and the lantern and fireflies...great idea!! Happy St. Patty's day to you too!!


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
