Irish Luck Vases

The phrase luck of the Irish is commonly thought to mean “extreme good fortune.” However, according to Edward T. O’Donnell, an Associate Professor of History at Holy Cross College and author of 1001 Things Everyone Should Know About Irish American History, the term has not an Irish origin but “a happier, if not altogether positive,” American one.
"During the gold and silver rush years in the second half of the 19th century, a number of the most famous and successful miners were of Irish and Irish American birth. . . .Over time this association of the Irish with mining fortunes led to the expression 'luck of the Irish.' Of course, it carried with it a certain tone of derision, as if to say, only by sheer luck, as opposed to brains, could these fools succeed." {source and more information}
We choose to make our Irish Luck Vases, believing in all the good luck God had bestowed on the Irish through hard work and determined people.

Our Irish Luck Vases are nothing more than a glass vase/cylinder, printables and tape.

We really love the printable from Chocolate is the Answer.
She designed contrasting options, which we love!

In no time at all, you can make up your vases simply by printing and taping on the printables. We used 2 per vase for even coverage.

Pop in some fresh cut or store bought flowers for a cheerful Irish blessing!

Because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in our transgressions - it is by grace you have been saved.
Ephesians 2:4-5
