2nd Annual Shamrock On!

This year, I spent St. Paddy's Day in Asheville, North Carolina. The weather was sublimely perfect. Asheville knows how to host a St. Patrick's Day!  

This is the first trip to Asheville that I've made that wasn't planned around The Biltmore. As much as I've always enjoyed visiting The Biltmore, I have learned that Asheville has so much more to offer. In fact, I was surprised at how "at home" I really reminded me of living in Laguna Beach, California.

So, here's my 2nd annual SHAMROCK ON post of all things green.......

A soap store called THE LAUGHING MERMAID had all sorts of handmade, green soaps. 

A store front 


It's all GOOD in Asheville.

The town the doesn't sleep.....

A celtic musician at Jack In The Wood Public House....where they take Irish food quite seriously.

My imagination can go wild with WHY or HOW this little alley got this name.

Nothing green here....but I liked the picture.

This store caught my eye from three blocks away. It even had a basement....and we explored every nook and cranny.

The "Before 9 PM" cracks me up.
