I love reading juicy novels on my iPad but, I will never rid myself of physical books. There’s my beaten up Little House on the Prairie series that was given to me by my late grandparents. My thrift store deal of a 1971 first edition of the USLTA Official Encyclopedia of Tennis. The Shel Silverstein stack. All these loved books are sorted out by color on our family room bookcase. I border on obsession on how to arrange said bookcase. Bring on the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day holiday, and I wanted to add some good luck charms in our house without appearing too four leaf clover. There are so many amulets that can bring you good fortune without appearing like a leprechaun is your personal interior decorator. Some marvelous inspiration…

Have fun inviting good fortune into your home. I know I could always use some more bamboo. But first I am going to go bake some shamrock cookies, because I really am irish so kiss me.
