I've been knitting myself a pair of booties and then I saw these. Are they cute or what? I really could use a pair. They fit most feet with elastic around the ankles for a snug fit. They are about 10 inches long and covered in sequins.

For utter uselessness, you can't beat rubber duckies. Still they are fun, especially for people who like to bathe with small Irish duck men. They are complete with vests, red hair, green hats and one even has a gold coin behind his back. The measure about 2-1/4" x 2-1/4". They don't squeak but they can squirt water out of their beaks.
They come in a set of 12 for collecting, sharing or gift giving.
If your doing your partying at home, you can sip your favorite beverage from a stein with the timely quote that "Many people die of thirst. The Irish are born with one."

Don't forget the Irish dog either. He or she definitely needs a stylish tee shirt to wear on St. Patrick's day. The tee shirt is 100 per cent cotton for doggy comfort. It has the Erin go Bragh logo on the back and comes in sizes extra small to large.
