FarmVille St. Patrick's Day Decorations: Shamrock Cottage, Shamrock Pond, Stone Wall & More

A series of five new decorative items (one building and four true decorations) was released to the FarmVille marketplace with tonight's update, with more of these items (surprisingly) being available for coins, rather than Farm Cash. The new building is one of the two Farm Cash items, and it comes int the form of the Shamrock Cottage.

The Shamrock Cottage is available for 34 Farm Cash, but watch out - it's basically the exact same item as the Irish Cottage, which was released as a prize in the St. Patrick's Day Wishing Well, except with a darker green color. Whether or not the different coloring on this item makes it worth the Farm Cash price is questionable, and will of course be up to your discretion. Either way, you'll receive 3400 experience points for purchasing it.

Meet us behind the break for a look at the four other items released this evening.
The one other Farm Cash item is the Green Broadbill, a decorative pair of birds perched atop a decorated twig of sorts. The branch is covered in lovely pink flowers, making this item stand out from other similar decorative animals that have been released in the past. You can purchase a Green Broadbill pair for 15 Farm Cash, but again, they are purely decorative and can't be harvested from, so don't purchase this if you're trying to make a profit in coins as with other animals.

Meanwhile, the three coin items are the Shamrock Pond, the Shamrock Topiary and the Stone Wall. The Stone Wall acts as a new fence for the theme - a stack of low gray stones covered in moss - and a single piece of the wall can be purchased for 10,000 coins. The Shamrock Topiary costs the same at 10,000 coins, and you'll gain 100 experience points for purchasing either item.

Finally, the Shamrock Pond is the most expensive of the three, by a long stretch too, as it costs 250,000 coins. While this pond looks more natural than structured, it does take on a loose shape of a shamrock, or three-leafed clover, surrounded by pink flowers, clover plants, and a few stones. You'll gain 2500 experience points for purchasing the item.

All of these items will be available in the game for the next two weeks, giving you a bit of time to save up the coins or Farm Cash necessary to purchase any of them should you so choose.

Which item is your favorite? Do you think the Shamrock Cottage should be available for coins, since it's basically a copy of an already released item? Let us know in the comments.
