St. Patrick's Day is as good a time as any to bring a little early spring cheer into your home. From brightly colored glasses and pillows to a brand-new doormat that speaks Gaelic, it's easy to be green when spring is on the way. Here are items to add an Irish spark to your home this month and all through the year.

The cheerful green 1963 Volkswagen Beetle print is paired with the phrase "may the road rise up to meet you," which is the beginning of a familiar Irish greeting. This 5-by-7-inch print is made with archival giclée pigment inks on cotton rag watercolor paper, and is suitable for framing. Also available as greeting cards. $16.95 at etsy.com.
