I'll be off for most of the next fortnight - not at the actual beach but you get the idea! Will be checking in regularly and keeping up with all your blogs! G

Covet Thursday: Anthropologie New Arrivals

I'm visiting London soon with two like-minded friends so we're planning a trip to Anthropologie. On browsing through their New Arrivals for home, I found some lovely items (not hard in this store), some probably more realistically attainable than others! I'm sure my covet list will fill up pretty quickly during our visit!


I received two gifts of teacup sets for my birthday last month. The first set - on the left - was from my Aunt - a handpainted Japanese treasure from her stash - and are lovely to drink from. The second set from my Mother-in-Law - beautiful and dishwasher friendly - so these are in regular use!

Covet Thursday: Stand Up Napkins by ThemeNaps

I came across these Stand Up Napkins by ThemeNaps in our local framing shop Marcus Framing in Cork and was instantly drawn to the great colours and patterns. Yes, I realise a fabric napkin is probably preferable but I love these - and no silly napkin folding required!

Visiting: Funderland

Funderland comes to Cork every year for the Easter holidays - we have a pretty good view of the park from our house but this year we decided to actually go and see all the different rides - and the people whose screams we can hear! We paid the basic entrance fee of 1.50 and had a great stomach churning time - not actually partaking of the various crazy machines flinging people about the place - just watching! And eating candy floss of course!
