An Irish Blessing

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you and your family
from the Doyle Family.
My Family, The Doyles', came from a quaint village in Ireland.
Doyle, is my maiden name which I have always kept
and we
even have our own Doyle Irish knit pattern...

and a Doyle insignia...

and here is my Son, Doyle,
with his lovely girlfriend, Ivy,
confused yet? Doyle is my son's first name...

We hope that you are surrounded by your loved ones this
holiday, and maybe a leprechaun or two
(actually a candle I created for the occasion)

here at the homestead we hope to see a leprechaun for good luck.
The Brayton Homestead is named after the Brayton Family
who built the house in 1796.

hope you followed this, even I am confused,
so from all of us, including Krumpet in his tartan cap

I see the family crest you wrote about over at Brambly...very neat. No, the three deerheads in my logo don't have any family significance. I simply love wildlife and wanted to pay tribute to all the wonderful animals that pass through the creek and garden behind my house. I wish I had a wonderful lineage and a beautiful crest, but sadly I do not. I'm now following you so that I can see more of your beautiful home. Take care.

To be Irish, even if only by association, is a blessing. LOVE the rose hedge.
