There is nothing like making something yourself from start to finish like crafts, I am such a big kid when it come to designing, making, sticking, picking, licking crafts. Came across this great blog The Purl Bee great ideas for homemade crafts, great for pressies for friends, loving this material picture idea, brilliant.


Yep, have no idea why but I have knitting fever, even knitted dog a hat, mind you the only time I get it on him is when he is asleep, spoil sport.

Have you ever looked at something from afar and it was one thing but as you got closer, it became something completely different?

Amazing, this beautiful panel wallpaper designed by Young & Battaglia. The paneling wallpaper has a vintage look the wallpaper creates an eye-catching feature which is timeless (ahem bit like myself).

Yes it is wallpaper “Genius” trick of the eye, Chesterfield upholstery detail.

With this Bookshelf wallpaper you can re-invent your home and turn a plain-looking wall into an eye-catching feature wall or transform an unattractive room space.

Brings the room together, beautifully.

Wallpaper of wrought iron, making a strong statement in any room.

Hello there, yes I am back but it’s not just me whose back, yep the frigging mice are too and they are camping out in my bloody wardrobe.

I am convinced that every year there is a meeting going on in my hay shed with all the mice, saying ” jaysus its a bit cold out ere sure why no go into the house, get lots of food and drive your one mad”.

I am using humane traps to catch them, which was a great idea at the time but when the mouse goes into the trap it wakes me up rattling round the kitchen. So I have to get up out of bed and set mouse free, as soon as I am settled back in bed the trap goes off again,  I bet its the SAME BLOODY MOUSE.

I think it is Mr Speedy Gonzales



I was browsing through the internet, checking out holiday homes to rent just out of curiosity more so and OH my, just came across this  “Fandabidozi” holiday home. Check this out, if I stayed here for a week, I would never leave.

Welcome to Tupper Lake vacation Lodge, rustic all the way.

Tupper Lake is a town in the southwest corner of Franklin County, New York, USA.

Just look at the glorious high ceilings, the whole house just embraces its beautiful surroundings of nature and brings it all into each room.

Perfect holiday home for any type of weather, would love to stay here in the winter and oh don’t forget the  snow outside.

Plenty of room in the kitchen area, if you do feel like cooking, yes even on your hols.

White panelling used throughout the kitchen area, rustic country.

I am not a big lover of four-poster beds, but I do really like this one, its like, your part of nature even when your sleeping.

Talk about getting cosy, Genius, great idea, you will be snug as a bug in one of these beds.

Would so love to stay in this house, must check my Lotto numbers.


And this is my holiday home, huh?

Ha, ha, it’s an old saying “Shine On Me Seamus” between me and my friends, you see, Seamus=The Sun. On our girlie hols, we would be lying back at the pool, shouting “Shine on me Seamus”, how sad were we? great memories though.

So the sun is out, its rare here in Ireland, believe me, as soon as People see the sun, its shorts, T-shirts, flowery dresses, even though it’s still cold, God love us.

Took himself for a walk, the dog that is, glorious day out, puts a smile on your face.

Now if I could only catch him, to put his lead back on, lot of running involved.

He’s very bold, speaking of bold, its time for those bold colours to come back out, Seamus is back.

Ahhh, a breath of fresh air, bright and breezy, colours.

Very bold and beautiful, mix and don’t match colours, be adventurous with colours, check out my blogs post on colours.

Well, enjoy the Irish sun shine while it lasts, its been 2 days now, so it’s a miracle.

Yep, no place like home, no matter where it is or in this case, how small.
