Visiting: Miss Courtney's Tearooms

We recently visited Miss Courtney's Tearooms in Killarney! The Tearooms had been recommended to me by a few people who had visited and fallen in love so I was determined to go and see for myself! As you can see from these great interiors I was not disappointed. This place is not just sweet and lovely from a decorative point of view but serves delicious teas, breakfasts and light lunches! We got there super early so it was really quiet and I had coffee and a scone - with clotted cream and jam - lets just say I'll be making this establishment a regular on my trips to Killarney!

Cork Butter Museum - Packaging Postcards

We visited the Cork Butter Museum exhibition last Summer and I bought these butter packaging postcards which I've been meaning to scan and post about since! I think my favourite is this Irish Wolfhound!

Covet Tuesday: Liberty Print Suitcases

I recently came across these Liberty Print Suitcases & am in love. Available in four prints - I think my favourite is the Floral Mabelle Print Mini Suitcase.

Helping Out: Wedding Fair Photography

Last weekend I helped out my good friend Niamh with her Wedding Photography stand at the Silver Springs Wedding Fair! Admittedly I was distracted by the the cake stands & the chocolate fountain but Niamh and her sister-in-law Lorraine drummed up a storm in business prospects! Take a look over at her website for more info!

Covet Tuesday: Marimekko - Räsymatto

I'm not usually drawn to black patterns but these  Räsymatto porcelain pieces from Finnish design company Marimekko are the exception! I fell in love with this Teapot when I saw it in a magazine and lo and behold the rest of the collection is also fantastic. Not sure where I'll find this range in Ireland - might have to wait for my next visit to London to visit the range at John Lewis.

Mahon Walk

Even though we leave very close to this walk we checked it out for the first time over the weekend - January has brought new enthusiasm for getting out and about and this was a particulary nice way to start off the New Year!

Gifted!

I was very spoiled this Christmas - just look at all the lovely goodies I received! Now its time to get some new projects started - and a major clean out of my crafts supplies is required!
