Etsy Ireland St Patrick's Day Treasury Hunt

Yarr me Hearties!

Fancy hunting some treasure?

Over 300 Euros worth of handmade goodness from Ireland, including an original oil painting, signed print, sea glass, silver, shamrocks and lots more?

This treasure?

Participation in the Etsy Ireland St Patrick's Day Treasury Hunt is simple, but the task is challenging... *drumroll*

Starting 8 March, we will post a clue every day on which will lead to a team member's shop. Find the word hidden in one of their pictures and at the end of the hunt, rearrange the words into a proper sentence.

Links to all Crafty Ireland team members' shops can be found on this blog in the drop down list under directory on the left.

After the last clue has been posted on 15 March, please email your sentence to me, Purls, at purlsofcolour [at]

The deadline for submissions is 16 March  at 11.59pm (23:59h) GMT. On St Patrick's Day, I will pull a name out of one of my woolly hats, watched by no other than the impartial bear, Judge Jacob.

Mo, who is collecting the donations from team members all over Ireland, will then be posting the treasure to the lucky winner.

Participation is open to everyone except the Treasure Hunt organisers (Letizia, Purls, Nadine and Suzie). Just to clarify, you do NOT have to be a member of the Etsy Ireland team to take part.

In the most unlikely event that there is a problem with a prize (ie one of the donations might not arrive at Mo's in time/gets lost in the post), it may be substituted with something equally gorgeous! So no worries...

Enjoy hunting for treasure and pleasure!!!

Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone!
