Chocolate and cupcakes and craic, oh my!

Bloggie friends!!!

I will never forget my first ceilidh (Gaelic social gathering or good ol fashioned PARTY!) only because in my ignorance I kept pronouncing ceilidh as "see-leeg", rather than the correct one of "kay-lee".

Ahem.


I did the lettering all by myself!! Yes I did! :-)

Charlie says: I was most riveted by your efforts.

Enjoy the craic!

I know the word (ceilidh) when I see it, but I can NEVER remember how to pronouce it - I usually end up with sill-de for some reason :)

You really take the bisuit here. :-)
Or maybe Charlie would like to BUT... knows his place bless his paws, going for the easy option :-)Don't blame him. Hey Charlie,........ want a cookie with that bit of string ?

The first ceilidh I ever "attended" was in a book! In the Thorn Birds, by Maureen McCullough. I didn't know how to pronounce it at all.

Very nice! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Very nice! Lol.... Charlie, you crack me up. :) My kiddies and I will be making yummy Irish potatoes (which, of course, are not potatoes at all!).

Most of the year we delight in my fully Italian hubby's cooking... but we do enjoy some of my Irish/German/Welsh/Scottish (add random European country here) fare every now and again. :)

Yikes, I wonder what you might do for St. George's Day?
Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet star says, 'Charlie get up and I will send you my autograph!' :)

Manzanita said...

Thanks for the new word. You didn't know how to pronounce it.... I didn't even know what it was. But now I do, thanks to you

Susan Kane said...

Great lettering! My hands won't do stuff like that. I did make some Irish brown bread.
Have a blessed day!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

That is one beautiful cupcake! And WTG on the lettering...

Kea said...

Oh, the chocolates look wonderful, as does that cupcake (or mini-cheesecake, perhaps). Well done!

Happy St. Pat's Day! I'll have a beer after work, but will pass on green beer. LOL.

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

Happy St. Pats! Have a Guinness? But not a green one!

Ellie said...

Al said...

I swear Irish words are spelt the way they are just to confuse us poor English speakers (assuming Oz actually qualifies as English)

Brian said...

Wake up Charlie, there's yummy stuff!!!

Madeleine said...

Margo Berendsen said...

I always manage to mess up Celtic/Gaelic words! Now, what's a craic? And what's an Irish soda farl?And that's not fair posting chocolate when I can't get my hands on it!

joanne fox said...

Ceilidh's are so much fun, but oh so energetic!

Clarissa Draper said...

India Drummond said...

What beautiful cupcakes! I want one! I'll take Charlie's. He doesn't look like he's a cupcake eater. =)

Happy St Paddy's Day :) Mom thinks the chocolate looks yummy!! heehee
We wet to the beginning of your blog and read about your kitty. He was the same age as Mickey and left almost on the same date. We send purrs to you and hugs.

Thank you for your purrs for Mickey.
We miss Mickey, but know he is happy at the Bridge.
It just takes some getting used to right now.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

YUM!!

xoxo for you and Charlie!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I have a niece named Kaylee so i never frget the pronunciation ! :)

Hope you had a Happy St Patrick's Day!

Guinevere said...

Your pronunciation issues made me smile... I'm infamous for mispronouncing words. I just think in words-on-page too much, so there are many words I know and use when writing, but won't hazard to say!

Happy St Patty's to you too! :)

Theresa Milstein said...

Gaelic is definitely a hard language to decipher!

Lovely cupcake and chocolates.

Hope you had a fun St. Patrick's Day!
