THREE CHEERS FOR THE IRISH

Peter Casey has been with the New York City police department for 25 years. He’s totally surprised when he’s asked to retire on his 25th anniversary with the force. He’s even more unprepared for the romance that develops between his favorite daughter, Maureen, and the Scottish cop who takes over his beat.

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

A Great Day For The Irish

A Great Day for the Irish with Little Nellie Kelly (Judy Garland)……and Irish Freckle Bread?

Its a great day for the Irish Little Nellie Kelly Judy Garland A Girl Milking her cow Sunday vintage Move Irish movies St Patricks Day Celebration vintage tradition Irish Recipes Songs

It’s a Great Day For The Irish…

In Ireland, Jerry Kelly marries his sweetheart, Nellie Noonan  over the objections of her ne’er-do-well father, Michael Noonan , who swears never to speak to Jerry again, even though he reluctantly accompanies the newlyweds to America, where Jerry becomes a policeman, and all three become citizens. Michael continues to hold his grudge against Jerry, even when Nellie dies while giving birth to little Nellie.

And here is Judy Garlands only death scene …….

Years later, Jerry is now a captain on the police force, and little Nellie (also played by Judy Garland) has grown up as the spitting image of her mother. When Nellie becomes enamored of Dennis Fogarty, the son of Michael’s old friend Timothy Fogarty , the squabbling between Nellie’s father and grandfather intensifies, as Michael objects to the romance, and finally leaves home because of it.

Eventually, the three generations are reconciled, and Nellie and Dennis remain a couple.

 

Judy entertains us with her lovely voice singing ‘A GREAT DAY FOR THE IRISH’

Along with a traditional song ‘ A Girls Milking Her Cow’ sung partly in Irish – Gaelic

When Irish Eyes are Smiling

WHEN IRISH EYES ARE SMILING

When Irish Eyes are Smiling Of Ireland Irish Heritage Ireland elegantlyhandmade by Melissa elegatnlyhandmade.wordpress.com

Hello, I am Melissa O’Connor (Maiden name), and there is more Irish about me than just my name it is indeed running strongly through my veins. O’Connor is from my father, and we are predominantly Irish with a very interesting family history that takes us on a long journey from a doctor in the United States in the 1840’s to his adopted family in England, then on to our family roots in Ireland. Also, with the last name Yates on my mom’s side, this adds even more Irish to my heritage.

 

WHEN IRISH EYES ARE SMILING

When Irish Eyes are Smiling sure it’s like a morn in spring
In the lilt of Irish laughter you can hear the angels sing
when Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay
but when Irish eyes are smiling sure they’ll steal your heart away

Dan & Melissa

There’s a tear in your eye and I’m wondering why
that it ever should be there at all
with such power in your smile sure a stone you’d beguile
and there’s never a teardrop should fall
when your sweet lilting laughter’s like some fairy song
and your eyes sparkle bright as can be
Oh then laugh all the while and all other times smile
and then smile a smile for me

Chorus…
For your smile is a part of the love in your heart,
And it makes even sunshine more bright.
Like the linnet’s sweet song, crooning all the day long,
Comes your laughter and light for the springtime of life
Is the sweetest of all
There is ne’er a real care or regret; ad while springtime is ours
Throughout all of youth’s hours, let us smile each chance we get.

 

~ let us smile each chance we get!

Secrets Of Ireland…..

Roan Inish Of Ireland Folklore selkies donegal county Ireland A Sketchbook of Ireland in photographs Traditional Irish Foods Tea St patricks day celebrations recipes elegantlyhandmade.wordpress.com

There are many Secrets Of  Ireland she  also has many folklore stories, a strong history…… beautiful landscapes and seashore. And let’s not forget the perfect “cuppha tae” and  delicious foods such as buttermilk scones to go with todays movie.

THE SECRET OF ROAN INISH

Fiona  is a young Irish girl with an unusual family history, including a long-missing baby brother. When she goes to live with her grandparents on the west coast of Ireland, Fiona hears stories about her ancestors, tales that involve mythical creatures called selkies who can shift from seal to human form. After Fiona ends up on the small island of Roan Inish, her family’s ancestral home, she believes she may have found her little brother living by the sea.

“The east is our future, and the west is our past,” Fiona’s God-fearing grandmother (Eileen Colgan) declares. But the old island draws Fiona to it, even though her inquiries make her elders nervous. Before long, the girl is poking around on Roan Inish, accompanied by a 13-year-old cousin, Eamon (Richard Sheridan). One day she spies a naked wild child in a field, picking flowers. But when she cries out her lost brother’s name, the little boy runs off to a tiny boat-shaped cradle and paddles out to sea.

Fiona’s  grandfather  tells her of a Conneelly ancestor who fought the British to defend the Irish language. Then her dark-haired cousin Tadhg tells her about the forebear who fell in love with a “selkie” .  He fathered a brood with her before she returned to her marine-mammal form.

Roan Inish Of Ireland Folklore selkies donegal county Ireland A Sketchbook of Ireland in photographs Traditional Irish Foods Tea St patricks day celebrations recipes elegantlyhandmade.wordpress.com

Selkies are said to live as seal in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land.

 

Here is a small clip of the beginning of the movie. I own this movie and enjoy it very much through out the year and well worth the small fee some are  charging to watch the full length movie  on-line.

“The Secret of Roan Inish” freely mixes Celtic myth and everyday reality.  Its focus is not so much on the collision of modern life with traditional ways as on a private journey to discover roots – of family history, geography and ties to nature.

HOW DID THEY COME UP WITH THESE NAMES?!?

Over the millennia, Gaelic and Viking names have become anglicized; later, when the tables turned, English names became Gaelicized. Spelling isn’t as important as pronunciation…….which is almost impossible anyway.

Dun: fortified area, castle, or fortress.

I do wish I could have sat by the hearth, on cool winter evening knitting with Tasha ~ watching her style …how she held her needles…how fast she knit …. just how many projects she has on the needles at one time…listening as she shared her wisdom and knitting experience. I did get to talk to someone very special about Tasha’s shawl and many other insights into Tasha’s life.

O’Connor Irish Cottage Style Knitting  I : Now that you are comfortable let me show you how I how I hold my yarn….

First  ~ We will  bring the yarn across your small/ pinkie finger ~ just once ( sorry that looks like twice I do not know where that top yarn came from), the yarn really does not stay there after you get your yarn placed, and start knitting.
Second ~ you then bring the yarn to the top between your ring finger and middle finger. and back down between your small/pinkie finger
Third picture ~ bring the yarn to the back and across the back your ring and middle finger and up to he top, between your middle finger and index/pointer finger.
I have included a video from my Vimeo account (at the bottom of the post), ~ A new up-dated video coming soon! I hope will help ~ I am working on my production skills, so please excuse some of the focusing and back ground noises. If you have any question please leave a comment.

Next, we bring the yarn across your ring finger and down (to the back of your hand) between your ring finger and your pink / small finger

Irish cottage style knitting Cottage Elegance tutorial instructions Irish Cottage style shawl pattern hand Knit shawl Tasha Tudor fashions life style Attire Hand made from scratch life Knitting methods tutorial cottage eleganc Kindred spirit shawl knitting

Third  ~ bring the yarn to the back (this is the yarn at the top in the picture) and across the back your ring and middle finger and up to he top, between your middle finger and index/pointer finger. When your knit the index finger of course does a lot of the work and your thumb keeps your knitted fabric moving along. Since your yarn is coming between the index finger and the middle this will naturally be where your tension is controlled – naturally, you should not have to squeeze your fingers together,  you will achieve a natural  occurring tension as you become more comfortable with this style of knitting.
I have included a video from my Vimeo account  ~ A new up-dated video coming soon!

 

If you have any question please leave a comment. Follow my blog so you get notification of new post with about Tasha adventures~ seeking Kindred Spirits! I will be looking even closer at Tasha’s shawls  and have some insights from a very special friend. I will up-date you on the progress of my shawl pattern.

Knitting Tasha Tudor.

I do wonder what Tasha is knitting ~ in this nice cozy looking picture???  Maybe another grey shawl? The grey shawl appears to be her everyday work shawl ~ so we would certainly need several on hand. I always have a “Kindred Spirit” or “Cottage Elegance” shawl on the needles. I find this type of knitting to be a calming knit.

Tasha Tudor Christmas Red Hand Knit cottage shawl Tasha Tudor Tuesday Birthday hand knit shawls tutorial instructions patterns

Here is the current Tasha Tudor style cottage shawl that I am working on. I do seem to always have one in progress because of the many kindred spirits who request for me to custom knit a shawl, just for them!

It is a bit hard to keep up with knitting for my gran-babies, daughters and my shop. So by popular request I have decided to offer my PATTERN FOR SALE, so that my friends can knit  a “Kindred Spirit” “Cottage Elegance” Tasha Tudor style shawl of their own.

My shawl pattern will include my  “Kindred Spirit” Tasha Tudor style grey wool shawl, with added bonus of  my  “Cottage Elegance Cotton Shawl” – as previously featured on my blog. Along with a few extras.

My PDF / DIGITAL PATTERN  is – indeed ready for purchase and available for purchase in my etsy shop:
