Oh I really wanted to win this Giveaway - so you can understand my excitement when I read the good news over at the wonderful Henhouse Homemade! I've been a fan of Helen's blog since the start so it was such a great surprise to win these very generous goodies. Booty includes: Fab 1950's copy of Practical Householder, Gorgeous Crocheted Brooch, Three Handmade Cards, Sweet Rosehip Notebook & Pencil, Lovely Handwritten Note to Me, and best of all Truly Fantastic Vintage Fabric Lavender and Wheat Sack. This patchwork beauty smells and looks wonderful and is beautifully made as are all Henhouse creations!

Apologies for abrubt absence - have been in London for the weekend visiting a friend! Will post about adventures later in the week - also I'm planning a giveaway - more on which later! Meanwhile my Mum picked up this Fab Orla Kiely for Bewley's Tea Caddy for me last week in I believe Centra - they were selling them off for 3euro a piece complete with lovely box of tea! It has pride of place on my bookshelves now!
I came across this Pudding Club design recently really love the colours. I picked up the (reasonably priced) table runner and coasters. They are from the Jackie Llewelyn Bowen range for Irish company Charles Gallen.
Finally: Whoopie Pies! Yes this wrapper is the only thing left of my Toffee Whoopie Pies from M&S - photograph from here. Apparently these are the 'new' cupcake and I'm not sure about that - definitely not as pretty for one thing but these were really lovely with a nice cup of tea!

Having finally decided on what bicycle I want I now need the perfect helmet to go with it! I'm coveting these great helmets from Nutcase - most especially the pink Street Star Bright helmet above. Not so sure how easy it is going to source online for Irish Customers but more research might bring success!

We spent last week in beautiful Co. Clare visiting The Cliffs of Moher, Doonbeg, Lehinch, Poulnabrone, and Inis Oirr! Back to work this week - hope to re-vamp my Etsy shop and have some new projects in the works!
