Covet Tuesday: Woody's Roundup - Woody the Sheriff

Is it wrong to really want one of these Sheriff Woody dolls all for myself? This collector's edition is an accurate replica of the film Woody and interacts with your voice! I have my eye on Mr. Potato Head too!

Airmail Love

Airmail inspired design is everywhere at the moment and I fell in love with these cuties from Accessorize during my London trip. I'm in the process of creating my own airmail loveliness - more on which later!

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!

Visiting: Anthropologie Regent Street

I finally got to visit Anthropologie last weekend! We decided to go to Regent Street on Sunday morning so it
was very quiet and so we could also squeeze in a visit to Liberty! Having thoroughly browesd the three floors of loveliness I finally decided on buying this tea-towel though I think it will be more of a show towel! I also liked these measuring cups but they exceeded my budget!

Covet Thursday: Oilily Bags

I've noticed these Oilily bags in Pharmacies around Ireland for a while now so decided to do some online investigating. Oilily was familiar to be as a children's clothing company but I must say I really like these bags - most especially the blue laptop case!

Orla Kiely Tea Caddy - JLB Pudding Club - Whoopie Pies

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!

Covet Tuesday: Nutcase Helmets

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 recently visited Doneraile Wildlife Park - such a beautiful day! We got really close to these deer and had a little picnic under the trees! We then tripped along to the The Donkey Sanctuary at Liscarroll - look at the lovely environs these lucky donkeys get to roam - ear rubs also encouraged!
